With 3 full time trucks and 1 special occasion truck that travel all over LA and Orange Counties, Kogi BBQ is always in range to satisfy your cravings. Their website is very good at letting you know where they will be for the entire week ahead. We are moving out of Los Angeles soon, and I had to have a... More

Very tasty and well spiced food. I always order the chicken burrito and it delicious. My husband likes the tacos, pork, chicken and short rib!

I didn't realize you could pack so much flavor into a little package but they did it! I had the spare rib tacos, and the spicy pork tacos, but my favorite was definitely the spice pork wet burrito! Check their Twitter @kogibbq to find out where they are posted up for lunch, dinner, and late night!

This review is for their short rib tacos which were very good 5 stars, their dessert not very good one star. Customer service four stars.

Very nice tacos with a different twist. I tried it at the Los Angeles wine festival so I was lucky enough to have somewhere to sit and appreciate it.

Kogi Taco Truck is highly recommended through out the web, and it is the one food truck I really liked to chase to prove. But combining different tastes in a dish may not always work, especially when one goes to the east and the other to the west. At the end of the story, one must give it up to... More

I tried the tacos and enchiladas in Venice beach, I went especially to try them, and it worth it!! Generous quantity and great taste, the fusion of coreen bbq and mexican tacos is genius!

This was a pleasant surprise, we managed to catch the truck to our nearby location, pls check the website for its location and hours of service. Quesadilla's were amazing, pack man burger and tacos were outstanding. You might have to wait for little while as there were quite of few people ahead of us to place to the order.

Consistently high level food no matter which truck you select. The short rib burrito is iconic but all dishes seem high level.
