I’m gonna be honest about something up front with Echo Park’s Tacos Arizas. They have a “C” health rating.
And it’s proudly displayed next to their menu, not hidden in a dark corner splattered with old salsa drippings.
And you know what? Who cares!
The taco truck next to a Walgreen’s parking lot is so popular and the tacos are so good that it’s not like any of the meats are sitting out for too long before they’re shoved lovingly into a tiny little tortilla so you can cram them into that thing you call a mouth.
Coming to a taco truck at night when you’re completely sober is an interesting experience. You’ll likely be one of the very few sober people there. Just get your tacos quickly and run before the hipsters behind you talk about how much they love Tom Waite but give really stupid reasons (this actually happened).
While I think Taco Zone has slightly better meats and better salsa/topping selection, these were still quite awesome and cheap and I ate every bite before I headed out before I made a snarky comment to an innocent, drunk bystander.
