King Taco is amazing. It spoiled other taco places for me :( The service was quick, the soda had the right mixture and the tacos....oh my god the tacos. I want to build a giant transformer out of King taco food and destroy lesser, punier tasting tacos with my tortilla guns!

Besides Mexico, this place has the best tacos around at a great price. The most popular ones are the carne asada and tacos al pastor. However, my favorite one is the chicken tacos. They are the simple street tacos with cilantro, onions, and hot sauce. But be careful, the hot sauce is very very spicy. I always get the medium one, which is the green one, and it still burns my mouth. And trust me, I eat lots of really spicy food. The horchata is very tasty here. Although it's a little drive from my hometown, it's definitely worth it for some authentic tacos.

The tacos here are absolutely delicious. Great experience, I recommend going with the green sauce. A bit spicy, but incredibly delicious. Prices are good for the quality.

King Taco (on Peck Rd.) is a solid, authentic Mexican dive for great tacos, but I've eaten better. In fact, King Taco's OTHER location (in Pasadena) has better tasting meats for their tacos, and is cleaner.

You come here for slamming down tacos, plain and simple. Good stuff, and very authentic, but the Carnitas, Carne Asada and Sesos were all "solid" but not the best I've ever had. It's cheap - like $1 per taco, so it's a good deal. The Carnitas I had, for example, was far too greasy and just not that tasty. Try Taqueria La Catedral down the street for better tacos (and better portions).

King Taco is a great place to eat out anytime. A place to take the family, friends and of course a date before you going out dancing for the night. The tacos are good to eat and the burritos are filled up nice and large. Plus the serve chicken on the weekends. Go and try it yourself and see what everyone is talking about!

I don't really like meat in my burritos, so I usually get the bean and cheese burrito at the Cal State LA location. Da bomb! Let them put everything on it....if you're worrying about onions then you ain't looking for a good meal. I also like the "red sauce" and the radishes with my burrito - Oh, and in the wintertime, get the coconut flavored Atole - so good you'll wanna cry!

King Taco is by far one of the best authentic Mexican restaraunts in So. California. I highly recomend the "Combination Burrito" with carne asada. I would suggest in getting your salsa on the side. Not in the burrito! It's super hot but super tasty. You might wanna learn to speak spanish so you can get some extra's on the side. Orale!
