Mexican

Even though UCLA students who come here after a long night out probably won’t stand around and wax poetic about Tommy Taco’s international influences on its Mexican street fare, they probably should. The late-night snack shop’s creations include burritos like the K-Town, decked out with Korean BBQ short ribs, rice, and spicy cabbage, and the Frankenstein, including two bacon-wrapped hot dogs smothered with chili, cheese, fries, avocado, and sour cream. These immense burritos of champions are escorted on the menu by beef quarter-pounders and Tommy’s infamous Dream Fries (a must-have). But being a hole in the wall, Tommy Taco is easy to miss; if you don’t know where to look, you might just stumble right past it.
