Fried Tacos in Orange County????

Diamond Dog | Jan 7, 2004 06:40 PM

In search of good fried tacos in Orange County.

These are the type of tacos that are fried fresh as you order. Usually its a "taco shop". They have these in a lot of places outside Orange County (ie Hermano's in Vista, Miguel's Jr. in Riverside)

These are NOT to be confused with Taquitos or with the soft tacos you get at a lot of the Taquerieas.

El Matatae on Chapman in Orange, primarily has the soft tacos, but they have Tacos Darados (fried tacos) but they only do them with a potato filling.

I know there are a lot of sit down restuarants that serve tacos this way (ie Mi Casa in Costa Mesa) but I am looking for for a wuick, inexpensive, taco stand.

Also I have found places that use a prefried shell. Yuk! Please don't recomend those.

It would be nice if your recomendation was close to Orange or Santa Ana.
