Tacos Don Jorge has opened on Venice

NAspy | Jan 25, 2008 03:03 PM

Tacos Don Jorge was a pretty well regarded taco truck that used to park on Venice Boulevard, just west of La Cienega. Rumor has it with funding help from the furniture store nearby (Autenico) he was able to open his own shop. They are within walking distance of us and we are very glad they are finally there!! The taco truck is now parked outside the restaurant with a banner proclaiming the place NOW OPEN.

I'm nowhere near the expert about tacos and Mexican food that others on this board are, but we have been to TDJ three times and each time was better than the last. The chicken tacos were "ok," but I loved the al pastor burrito (beans, rice, cilantro, marinated onions and peppers), and today's carne asade sope really hit the spot. They also serve tortas and quesadillas and all manner of meats.They offer two salsas, mild and hot,and both are pretty spicy. The place is immaculately clean and the staff is really nice.

You can eat there at one of the three little wobbly tables or take out.
