Tacos Quetzalcoatl

$$$$
Hours:FRIDAYClosed
Perfect For:Lunch

Tacos Quetzalcoatl splits its time between downtown (on weekdays, at Central Ave & 8th St.) and East LA (on weekends, at Olympic and Kern), and wins the award for best vegetarian street tacos in the city. You simply won’t find a better meatless taco in LA than Quetzalcoatl’s Taco Omega-2. If you are looking for meat, their lamb barbacoa is tremendous, and if you ask, they’ll fry cheese right into the side of tortilla.

Tacos Leo

Tacos Leo might be a taco truck in a gas station parking lot, but you aren’t going to find a better al pastor taco than right here.
