Another one of those places where you drive by almost all your life and never even notice its existence. Behold, Tacos Mexico and its $.075 taco Tuesday/Wednesdays:
Typically when I want to satisfy my after-dinner Mexican fast-food cravings, I go to Taco Del Rio on Azuza in La Puente. $6 gets you a monster burrito with all the fixings. Their tacos are also generously portioned and priced at just over a buck. What we ate as UCSD students can't even compare to TDR.
...fucking Sergios, Cotixan, Robertos, Rigobertos....ugggh I'm not gonna continue listing them.
Then I was told about Tacos Mexico in Hacienda Hts who are open 24/7. $0.99 gets you a taco that tastes just like a street taco. So effin' satisfying. To hell with my East LA taco crawls. I'll save myself the drive and just come here. You'll finish a taco in 3-5 bites (2 if you're a pig) so order a lot of 'em at once if you're hungry.
They serve other stuff too like sopes, gordidas, and breakfast items. Combo plates also available. I think I'll keep it simple and just stick with the tacos. Their meats are pretty decent--well seasoned and juicy. But, Taco Del Rio meats taste better. You'll just have to decide whether you want a street taco from Tacos Mexico or a more meat-oriented Taco Del Rio.
I've read the Yelp reviews on this place and I have to disagree with some of them. Jason K and Neil's reviews are pretty spot on though. Yes, this won't be a mind-blowing, life-altering gastronomic experience, but at these prices and their 24/7 business hours, the value is pretty goddamn good for what you get. The place is clean, tacos aren't soggy with oil, & the meat tastes good. Just make sure you come early enough while it's still freshly cooked. I'd say a 3 star rating. My second choice after TDR, which closes at 10:30ish.
