Located in a tire shop parking lot in South Central, Tacos Los Guichos is a tiny taco truck that serves the kind of crispy and slightly sweet al pastor that keeps us up at night. The tiny truck is open all-day starting at 8:30am, but if your schedule allows it, head over after the sun goes down. That’s when the al pastor comes fresh off the vertical spit outside the truck and causes us even more insomnia than the daytime version. Cash only.
