Tito's Tacos

Messy And Marvelous

The food at Tito's Tacos caught me by surprise. It's not like most places I've been to. Think, "Super Authentic" as in, they don't have chicken burritos for silly little gringos like me.

After a few tries I'll have a better idea of what to order at Tito's.

With a line about 10 people deep and maybe 5 people wide the kitchen of Tito's is a bit concealed. Once you get up to the front, you can see inside. Picture a factory that would make Henry Ford proud.

My burrito was quite a mess but really good. Yes, it was greasy with a soup-ish consistency, and most definitely not very healthy. While this isn't my burrito of choice, I'm glad I got to taste it, and I recommend you do, too.

This Tito's Tacos meal was rated: 7.6.

Welcome To Tito's Tacos

Winner of 2003's Best Mexican Food in Los Angeles, Tito's Tacos is located in Culver City, CA (Map) - that's just plain LA to the non-locals. There's only one location, and they've been in business for over 40 years.

That's 40 years with no seats. Unbelievable dedication.

After running into David, I of course asked him where the best cheap Mexican food was hiding. Following confirmation with City Search, John and I plotted a course to Tito's Tacos for some burritos.

There are some things to keep in mind about Tito's:

  • There are no seats
  • They have a parking lot...
  • There is nowhere to park
  • There are no chicken burritos
