LA Weekly's Description

If you're into tacos, at one time or another you've probably noticed the conflagration outside El Gran Burrito, a stand tucked away near LACC. Like most great Los Angeles taco places, El Gran Burrito is less notable for the food served inside the restaurant than for the food served out back on evenings and weekends, when the big grill is set up under an awning, and the aroma of charred beef permeates the air for blocks. El Gran Burrito is Hollywood's entrepĂ´t of carne asada, grilled beef, snatched from the fire, hacked into gristly nubs, and made into tacos in less time than it takes you to fish a couple of dollars from your jeans. They are grand tacos, sizzling hot, oily, glowing with citrus and black pepper. In the world of food, a truly fine taco may be as close as you can get to nirvana.

    El Gran Burrito has the best Tortas, Wet Burritos and Tacos ever. The crowd is always different, lively and friendly. Great place to meet up after a night out on the town.

    Airborne Toxic Event say this is the kind of place where you have to order in Spanish or you'll get weird looks. They wheel carts out to the parking lot and everyone eats outside. Awesome!

    FYI- drugs and/or drug DEALERS are not allowed (so how does anyone get to eat here then?? LOL)

    If you are near the Red Line and it's before midnight and you're hungry for tacos, take the subway to Vermont / Santa Monica. El Gran Burrito is right there. Eat, get back on the subway, go home.

    Get a Wet Burrito with extra cheese on it, so good
