The only thing better than a Tito's Taco... is two. The slogan says it all. There is always a line at Tito's and the tables are usually full. The majority of those in line are taking their order to go. It's worth the wait!
I've been eating Tito's Tacos for at least 45 years. It's my comfort food and I continue to eat my two tacos and a bean and cheese burrito at least three times a month. Tito's is pure Californian Mexican food: crispy, fried tacos filled with mixed meat and lettuce. If you want cheese, it's extra. I happen to LOVE them without the cheese.
What makes these tacos so good is Tito's fresh red salsa. It's not spicy at all, just delicious. If you want a little kick in your food ask for some of the green salsa, which is diced, pickled jalapeno peppers. It's all about the combination of flavors.
The standard burritos at Tito's are meat and bean but you can order them all meat or just bean and cheese. They also sell cheese enchiladas, beef and chicken tamales, tostadas, and chili beans. The sides include refried beans, rice, and guacamole like nowhere else.
Tito's food is all their own. You won't find the same taste in any other Mexican restaurant. The first stop when picking anyone up from LAX is Tito's Tacos. It's what those who have moved away miss most.
