Favorite taco truck?

My favorite taco truck parks behind the car wash at the corner of Santa Monica Blvd and Gower St in Hollywood. Best tacos in town. I could down a dozen asada tacos topped with chopped onions and cilantros in 10 minutes.

I live on the east coast and the closest taco truck is probably the one parked behind the car wash at the corner of Santa Monica Blvd and Gower St in Hollywood

Taco stands are cool too. There's a 24 hour joint nearby with a large covered patio. Very popular with the locals and especially with the club goers during the very early morning hours. Almost feels like you're in Ensenada, Mexico.

Here in Sacramento county they won't allow any food trucks to stop and park. they have to spend a short while and then move on.

They just passed that same ordinance here in LA due to complaints from local restaurants. But they are free to park on private property all they want and conduct business.
