“Just the way my mom used to make them." #inTacosWeTrust
Born in Boyle Heights to the De La Torre family, Guisados focuses on a simple, straightforward menu of slow-cooked braises and homestyle tacos. Handmade with fresh ground masa, each corn tortilla boasts a tender, braised protein that tastes as if it’s been simmering on the stove for days, like slippery, fatty chicharron in chile verde, or the slightly sweet-yet-spicy shredded pork. They’ve since expanded to seven locations all over LA—including Echo Park, West Hollywood, Pasadena, and Burbank—but all of their stews and masa are still made and delivered from the original location multiple times a day to guarantee freshness. For early risers, select spots offer variations on breakfast tacos—piled with soft scrambled eggs, augmented with flavor-packed chorizo, or punched up with diced onions and jalapenos.
