Arturo's Puffy Taco

Wendy8869 | Sep 6, 200402:32 AM

This weekend I finally got around to making a trek to Arturo's Puffy Taco on Leffingwell in Whittier. I had read good reviews and also heard that it was featured on a "Best of" show on FoodTV. I don't live too far from it and couldn't live near it any longer without making a visit for myself. This place is a small taco shack with outside window ordering and a few places to sit inside and also outside. It really doesn't look very nice but the food is excellent. Warning, if you're looking for health food this isn't the place!!! I had the enchilada plate which had the best enchilada sauce I've had in awhile along with lots of gooey cheese. It came with a puffy taco with ground beef which was pretty good but I think next time I'll try one with steak or chicken. The plate also was filled with rice (very good) and beans - which will definitely be one of the things calling me to return. The refried beans were perfectly seasoned with a few whole beans making it a wondeful texture. I also got the strips texano which were very good too. This will definitely be a return stop when I need some comfort mexican food!!!!
