Cheap Taco Plate, Pasadena

katkoupai | Mar 31, 2007 06:19 AM

Where can I get a good, cheap taco plate (rice, beans, a few chips, tacos) in Pasadena? I am thinking about a "to-go" place with outdoor benches-- nothing fancy. By cheap, I mean up to $7, after tax.

I am thinking about:

El Burrito Express
Tortas Mexico
King Taco (again)
Los Tacos
El Toreo
El Metate
The mom and pop shop that Wild Swede likes on Summit and Hammond
The various Pasadena taco trucks-- are they around on the weekend?

I just want a no frills place, that's cheap, with good food (grab a seat, eat there, leave, without full-service). There's a freestanding hole-in-the-wall on Colorado and Rosemead Bl. (?) that I've been meaning to check out. Is that El Burrito Express?

What about that liquor store next to Pie N Burger? I noticed they sell tacos, etc. Is tbeir food any good? Thanks. Any thoughts on the above places would be appreciated.
