This City Has the Best Tacos in California

It’s Taco Tuesday. And if you’re looking for the perfect taquería to satisfy your appetite, head to Huntington Park, California. It was just named the best city for tacos by Rent.com.

Located just south of Los Angeles proper, Huntington Park has a prominently Hispanic/Latino population. So, it's no surprise that this is simply the best city for tacos in California, which is chock full of taco hot spots. Living in Huntington Park puts you around a half hour from both downtown L.A. and the beach, but do you really want to leave the cozy cocoon of fantastic taco spots you're fortunate enough to find yourself in?

 

With so many beloved taco spots to choose from, knowing where to start is the only hard part. You can't go wrong at a local institution 55 years in the making at Avilas El Ranchito Mexican Restaurant, where the shredded beef tacos are best washed down with a michelada. Next up, make your way over to Gallo Giro for sizable tacos and excellent aguas frescas. Finish off your Huntington Park sampler at El Chamizal, a.k.a. The House of Barbecue. And then, rest your stomach. You've got a long way to go to taste your way through Huntington Park's tacos.

Rent.com also named California the top state for tacos (duh). The runner-ups were Texas and Florida.
