King Taco is a fast food restaurant offering Mexican food with soft taco as the specialty. The restaurant chain is based in Los Angeles. Other than tacos they also serve burritos, sopes, nachos and Mexican drinks such as Jamaica, horchata, and tamarintdo.
They have at least 20 restaurants mostly in Los Angeles county most of which are concentrated in areas which are predominantly Mexican American. Additionally, King Taco has expanded with locations in the Inland Empire, Ontario and Fontana. Although it is a chain restaurant, their restaurants still look “family” owned unlike other chains like McDonalds, Taco Bell etc. Their walls are decorated with paintings with Mexican theme but they look rather “cheap” but I came here for the food not the paintings and other decors hanging on the wall.
For this review I visited their Lynwood location along Long Beach Blvd. during lunch. This location is quite large at least twice as large as most fast food chains. It is clean and looked well maintained. The place is a little bit crowded but since they have several cashiers taking orders, it went very quick.
I ordered 4 soft Carne Asada tacos which came with chopped asada beef, chopped onions and cilantro. There are 2 choices of sauce: red which is hot and green which is the milder version. I asked for the green and it was hot. The red must be super hot. The tacos looked small compared to traditional Mexican tacos but all four tacos of them filled me up. The meat is very tender and juicy; onions look and tasted very fresh and so with the cilantro.
Next time I will try the other items like the sopes and maybe also try their tamarindo drink.
Overall, King Taco is very good and worth going back to. It is cheap with very good food. The food is authentic unlike large chains like Del Taco or Taco Bell.
