Lolita (?), South El Monte off 60 Fwy. (in gas station)

cant talk...eating | Jan 9, 201308:55 AM    

Just wanted to give a heads-up about a newish taqueria located inside a gas station at the southwest corner of Rosemead and Rush St. in South El Monte. I believe it's a Shell station (I phoned to confirm the name but had a hard time understanding the guy on the phone, but it sounded like "Lolita". This is just a couple minutes north of the 60 Fwy. I talked with the owners when I was in a few months ago, and they're making all their sauces, and made my breakfast burrito to order (cracking the eggs, slicing the chorizo). It's new, so very clean. No seating, but you can eat at nearby Whittier Narrows picnic areas.
