Cactus #1 was the first taco shack I've found in Hollywood that served authentic al pastor. I've been coming here for over 10 years now and it just keeps on getting better. Anything with al pastor is fantastic - tacos, burritos, quesadillas. They've expanded their menu to include sopes and tostadas. The tortas are also outstanding. They're open until 3am on weeknights and 4am on the weekends.
Hungry @ 2am and want good tacos? Cactus is ur spot. Cash only.. always a line so be prepared to wait a few xtra minutes. But worth it.
good food, bad luck being near sewage line – We go here all the time, the food is top notch, service is consistent, veggie burritos are the best in the industry. Unfortunately sometimes we don't want to go there because the corner of the street where this place is located sometimes stinks of sewage. It's sad, and we mostly muscle through, but it is a hurdle. To our knowledge the occasional horrible aroma has nothing to do with cactus and everything to do with the sewer system.
Shrimp Tacos – The dish I like the best here are the shrimp tacos! Also the nacho plate is great...big and filling.
Late night – Perfect for after a night of partying. The food is great especially if your a little tipsy. Make sure to get the avocado burrito.
Yumz ! Always Fresh ! Always Fast ! – Love this taco stand... I was hesitant to stop by... I am pretty particular about my burritos and tacos. I liv e nearby. From 10am till late into the wee hours of of the morning there is always a line - moves fast. This Mexican boy was impressed. Always fresh, perfectly cooked meat. Great service with a smile even at 2am!
Big burritto with extra meat, fresh avocado, chesse and rice - my way and not much over 5 bucks!!!
Go there you see blue collar, thugs, even "veges", Hollywood chic and geek... its a good mix and great food. Always easy to find some quick parking.
simply the best – This place has THE best mexican food in los angeles, look no further...its soo cheap but sooooooooo good, and they have REAL mexican tacos...REAL ones like the ones in tijuana...when i found this place i freaked out i was soo happy...i go there frequently now
you must eat here!!! – Best taco/burrito stand I have experienced in Los Angeles/Hollywood. The prices are great and so is the food. Tables provided to sit and enjoy you meal as well.
