Editorial Review – This Los Angeles County fast food chain has been serving tacos, sopes, burritos and other traditional Mexican fare since 1974.
Solid, not great – King Taco (on Peck Rd.) is a solid, authentic Mexican dive for great tacos, but I've eaten better. In fact, King Taco's OTHER location (in Pasadena) has better tasting meats for their tacos, and is cleaner.
You come here for slamming down tacos, plain and simple. Good stuff, and very authentic, but the Carnitas, Carne Asada and Sesos were all "solid" but not the best I've ever had. It's cheap - like $1 per taco, so it's a good deal. The Carnitas I had, for example, was far too greasy and just not that tasty. Try Taqueria La Catedral down the street for better tacos (and better portions).
Good Stuff!! – King is muuch Better than Baja Fresh...King Taco should be ranked #1!!!....good tacos....good burritos......everything is good...and the salsa WILL leave sweating! Any Mexican knows that when a salsa is good it leaves you sweating
King Taco has the absolute best best BEST tacos ever! The green tacos have the best flavor as the red are just "HOT". If you want an authentic Mexican taco, this is the place for you...
I bow to King's – This is a "must eat" if you are in L.A .
Lots of food for your $ and you can wear surf trunks to a tux.
Have fun and enjoy their salsa's. yum.
the absolute best~!!! – the best soft tacos in southern california! also check out El Taurino on Hoover & Olympic. Same exact tacos, more restaurant style vs. the cafeteria style of King Taco
gotta try it! – King Taco is a great place to eat out anytime. A place to take the family, friends and of course a date before you going out dancing for the night. The tacos are good to eat and the burritos are filled up nice and large. Plus the serve chicken on the weekends. Go and try it yourself and see what everyone is talking about!
No hay mas buena comida rapida – Best fast food Mexican anywhere (especially the Pasadena location). Best of the best: sopes, tacos al pastor, tortas al pastor.
Mmmm...tasty! – I don't really like meat in my burritos, so I usually get the bean and cheese burrito at the Cal State LA location. Da bomb! Let them put everything on it....if you're worrying about onions then you ain't looking for a good meal. I also like the "red sauce" and the radishes with my burrito - Oh, and in the wintertime, get the coconut flavored Atole - so good you'll wanna cry!
The best tacos, with the best hot sauce – Everything is good, nothing bad to say. Only that you might have to wait to couple of minutes because there alot of people there.
