If the idea of having a slice of American cheese wrapped around your taco is incalculably repulsive, we’ve got news for you - Taqueria El Tapatio does it and it’s great. Are these the best tacos in the universe? Of course not. But for $2 a piece, this old-school, order-at-the-window joint on the south side of Glendale is as close to a taco standby as the area has. Also, they’re open everyday until 2:30am. Your Glendale drunk food journey ends here.
