The decor of the venue is nothing to write home about, but the food is authentically Mexican and authentically spicy, and there are plenty of specialty drinks and local beers to cool you down. The signature flan dessert is a must-try, as well as the Taco Tuesday deals which net you a whole heap of tacos for almost nothing. Table service is available inside, and there's a breezy patio outside if you want to take advantage of the weather.

50. The Original Taco Factory 14455 Newport Ave, Tustin, CA 92780

The Taco Factory may produce a huge amount of tacos and other Mexican favorites, but its brick-and-mortar store in Tustin is less warehouse than hole-in-the-wall eatery.

Bare boned on the inside, there's plentiful outdoor patio seating with picnic-style tables ideal for groups (or for holding an obscene amount of tacos).

53. Pink Taco 8225 W Sunset Blvd, West Hollywood, CA 90046 (Century City)

Known for its margaritas as much as for its tacos, this trendy West Hollywood taco joint is part of a local chain that has met with controversy over its suggestive name.

The eclectic decor and vegetation add to the fun party vibe of the place, which is an after work go-to spot for locals.
