I thought I overheard someone say the other day that there is going to be a King Taco opening in Alhambra? Does anyone know if it's true?!?

I tried King Taco for the first time last year. And that was a big mistake, because I was only in LA for a couple of days. Waaah, I'm not going to be able to eat King Taco again for awhile. I think I dreamt about a King Taco burrito last night. I want my King Taco!

I ate at King Taco for the first time this weekend. El Monte location. Sopes with carne asada and salsa verde.

BEST CARNE ASADA EVER.

(It's been a slow work day around here.)

KING TACO STORIES.
When I have the king taco itch (which is everyday of my life) and i'm close to the LA area, I always order 4-5 carne asada tacos plain. then the chile verde comes in. i seriously dump a whole damn cup on each taco and it transcends the gates of glory. I recently started getting asada burritos from KT as well. the red chile is great too, but something about the way the verde smells and tastes just makes me so so happy.

BTW: i had a hangover all day yesterday that didn't let me eat or even drink water. All i did was lay around daydreaming about King TAco.

and my other favorite, sushi.

Dear King Taco,
I'm sorry I cheated on you today for lunch. I had Del Taco. Once again, I apologize.

Sincerely,

Alexandro Guerrero

Heyas :)

I absolutely love King Taco. My friends and I eat it whenever possible. Though I have to say, sadly, it's been far too long, I think going on a few months since I've had it. :( And reading all these entries has thoroughly made me miss it. I do work in Pasadena, and can go get it at lunchtime, but the parking is so horrid. :)

I don't like the Pasadena location as much, because (as another poster has said) they are often more skimpy and they're skimpy with the chile too. Oh and I love the red chile not the green stuff, that's for wimps hahaha. Just teasing. They also don't have tostadas, which at the LA uhm location near cypress I think, they have tostadas and I love those, however, they got cheapy lately and aren't frying the tortillas they're using pre-bought crispy tortillas which have a completely different taste, makes me sad sad. :(

Ah well, enough about food, I'm starving as it is.

Here's to all of you, hope you have a taco soon!

Me.

Every place makes em differently, i dont know why.

We've all been infuriatingly skimped on quantity at some point or another, by the fearful preparers.


But where do you think they serve em the best???

I can say for a fact 3rd and Ford does. I haven't gone to the one on Hoover... I think I've been to 10 locations,
and I have to say 3rd & Ford, hooks it up nice, its worth the drive from Lincoln Heights.

Close after that was the CSULA one near Simpson Tower.


SKIMPIEST = PASADENA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!




Your thoughts?

So I didnt have King Taco!

And I'm rather pissed.
Eh today's been too busy to actually even leave the campus and go to King Taco.


WHY OH WHY did you close my King Taco downstairs?!?!?!?

Believe it or not, tomorrow marks the 1-year anniversary that they closed down my King Taco downstairs.

It's still vacant... cold, dead...



I guess I'll have a sope for dinner =/

Hey!

I just started a community to catalogue and sample every delicious burrito in LA, and my inaugural burrito review was KING TACO!!! Which had such a great burrito that I had to start a community about burritos! Haha. King Taco rocks. If you're in LA, come join my attempt to hit up every lunch truck and taqueria in LA.

I just miss tacos. I miss tacos with green chile on them. (I'm originally from New Mexico. and have lived in CA as well.) I have moved to a country where they put tuna and corn on baked potatoes. Luckily, I find fairly nice tortillas, but the only taco shells here are Old El Paso brand!!! There's not even a Taco Bell here ... so enjoy your tacos and be glad you live where you can get them. ;) I'd love to be able to drive up the road and get a taco and a burrito right now. *SIGH*

Have any of your tried the tacos de ceso, or as I would call them mad cow tacos?

I have never tried those tacos. I doubt that I would ever take a bite from that particular taco.

The thought makes me gag.

I just wanted to know.

Right now I would sell 1/4 of my soul for King Taco. I'm pretty hungry, and that's what I want for dinner.

On the latest issue of Los Angeles magazine they have a list of 25 best mexican restaurants in Los Angeles. I scanned through the list hoping to see King Taco listed on there, but nope, it wasn't on there. And just because of that, I concluded that whoever made this list no sabe donde tiene el culo.

Melancholy

It was a sad sad day on September 3, 2004. They closed the 2nd King Taco on the CSULA campus, the one downstairs from my office .

It broke my heart, i wanted a burrito for lunch. I wanted a burrito SATURDAY!!! Now I can't get a burrito when I have to come into work hungover as all hell... or even during the week.

Flautas for breakfast, a sope... *sniffle* a midday taco. It breaks my poor heart.
Rest in peace KT on CSULA. You WILL be missed.


Pride
Since they closed the one on campus, of course they have to transfer those workers. Well my worker from Lincoln Heights, who then went to CSULA, was now at the Pasadena King Taco.

Last week I wanted a burrito for lunch while I was at my job site in Pasadena and I run into her!!!!

We crack up, and she turns to her coworker and tells her: Mira Lety, le presento la clienta #1 de King Taco... A veces comia hasta 3 veces al dia


CAN I GET A WITNESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was called the #1 King Taco Client by one of their own, I guess that makes it semi-officlal right???


Neglect
I went to King Taco in LHTS on Saturday and Claudio, the manager, asked where I've been that I dont visit anymore. And its kinda true, I'm messican, I have bomb ass food at home too. But it's been a while, that I only recognized like 1 out of 7 workers!! What the fuck did my homies go?!?!?!?

But then again it was a Saturday evening, and I don't usually go at that time on Saturdays/Sundays.

Time:05:39 pm
Last night I ate five (5) taco de asada. I alternated between red sauce and green sauce on each taco. It was all washed down with one large horchata. You should have seen me, I was a happy woman last night.
