Villa's Tacos

$$$$

If you take one bite of a taco from Villa's Tacos and think, “I’ve never really had anything like this before,” it’s because you probably haven’t. This Highland Park taco stand is home to fully loaded tacos that come on Dodger-blue corn tortillas layered with crispy griddled cheese, diced onions, cilantro, crema, cotija, guacamole, and a mesquite-grilled protein of your choice. Oh, and did we mention they have seven different salsa and hibiscus-pickled onions, too? These tacos might sound overloaded, but the more-is-more totally approach works here, and in our experience, it's almost impossible to order wrong. That said, you should probably go with the Villa's Trio, a cheesy three-taco sampler that includes grilled asada, chorizo with potato, and chicken with black beans. Keep an eye on their Instagram as they pop up at various locations along York Blvd. in Highland Park throughout the week.
