There's nothing like the Los Angeles area's Mexican food and El Atacor is right up there with the elite! The service was quick and super friendly; the food was sublime. Enjoy, you won't regret it!

This is your late night spot for after a night of drinking, like most 24 hour mexican food spots this one does it better. Small hole in the wall, always on point.

I have enjoyed this place for many years. The food is always good and I usually order the Carne Asada burrito. The only downfall to this place is that it's on a busy street with little parking and the inside is very small.

This is King Taco's adversary. I preferred it because the taste is better and not "production type"

An after hours taco dive...nothing else but the taco's are worth trying and even those have to be eaten while you're still intoxicated.
