This is King Taco's adversary. I preferred it because the taste is better and not "production type"

An after hours taco dive...nothing else but the taco's are worth trying and even those have to be eaten while you're still intoxicated.

OK...if you are in the market for some downright delicious peasant Mexican food then this is the spot. I would eat here a few times a week when I lived in Whittier...try some of their sesos or tripas tacos (translates as cow brains and cow gut tacos) seasoned with some intense spices and hot chiles for a realmex south of...
