An outdoors-only restaurant great for ordering and eating outdoors or for take-out. The food is simple, yet healthy and flavorful. Worth the visit if you're craving a taco, burrito, or something similar. There are great choices of salsas, beans, rice, meats, or vegetarian options (tofu, etc.).

Hugo's Tacos uses unique ingredients that are healthy (and probably organic). For example white beans instead of black or pinto, oxtaca cheese, tofu filling, etc. Prices are reasonable and the food tastes great. You can get some of the same menu items at their full restaurant and pay twice as much!

Heard good things about Hugo's and took my wife for lunch. The menu looked amazing & prices were good. The problem was the food. Nachos were soggy. Grilled fish was fishy. The tostadas were also soggy & served with powdered Parmesan cheese. Not good at all. Service and atmosphere were good but we couldn't eat our food.

If you want a quick bite and you over in Studio City, head down Coldwater Canyon Drive to Hugos. I prefer carnitas but the have pollo and carne asides as well. Pick from multiple sauces and sides.

The tacos are good - but what makes them tasty is the addition of the sauce - there are several to choose from - but I highly recommend the honey chipolte - it has just enough heat that compliments the sweetness of the honey - sooooo good!

Love the informality of the taco stand and also the main restaurant just across the street! Both consistently good, clean, food. Restaurant has many choices including gluten-free, vegan, vegetarian, etc. And very lovely staff!

I have heard a lot of good things about this place, so since I was in the area I decided to give it a try. It was about 2 PM so I figured the lunch crowd would have thinned out a bit but not the case. Parking is awful and since their small parking lot was full, after going around... More

Walk up to the window and order your favorite taco made the way you like it. Lots of options! There's usually a line , but they are fast. And the tacos are stuffed and very good. A few tables on they're small patio, but I would get them to go. Great prices too!

This is an outdoor taco stand where you order at a window. The food is high-end and the location is really unpleasant if you enjoy a peaceful dining experience. The tacos come in varieties to suit everyone: various meats, fish (tilapia), avocado and mixed veggie. The handmade tortillas are especially delicious -- the real thing. They offer an assortment of... More
