Silver Lake Taco Quagmire

ronsilverado | Sep 24, 200801:20 AM     27

i love the taco zone, so very much. but it has spoiled me.

they have set the bar so high, and often times i do not have the patience or the time to wait until they arrive. so what, in the neighborhood, is comparable for lunch?

first some thoughts:
i can no longer eat el gran burrito. has been going downhill for a while, last time i went it was simply bad. so that's out.
i like yuca's burgers, but really don't find the tacos to be all that great, honestly.
tacos delta, fabulous chilaquiles. not so much tacos.
siete mares made me ill once. the memories linger.
obviously burrito king is out.

all of this having been said, i think the closest i have found is el charrito on virgil, notable primarily for their homemade tortillas.

otherwise, is there something i am missing a bit closer to home than el taurino, el parian, highland park, etc?
