If you’re reading this, there’s a pretty good chance you already have your quesotaco go-to - Tacos Y Birria La Unica, Birrieria Gonzalez, or perhaps Papi Tacos & Churros? But if you’re looking to add a new spot to your rotation, check out Villas Tacos. Starting with a thick, Dodger-blue corn tortilla (owner Victor Villa’s way of showing love to his hometown team) and crispy cheese, each taco is a stupendous, seven-layer affair - featuring creamy refried beans, diced onions, cilantro, crema, cotija, fresh guacamole, plus the mesquite-grilled protein of your choice. The house speciality (and we do mean house, since Villa grills in his grandmother’s Highland Park backyard) is chorizo and potato, and it’s spicy, smoky, and satisfying, especially when topped with Villa’s chunky tomato salsa with radish and cilantro, and some of their slightly acidic, pickled hibiscus onions. Interested? Give Villas Tacos a follow on Instagram, and DM them to place an order for pick-up.
