Review: La Pasadita

Find food in the middle of nowhere on a road trip from Los Angeles to Detroit can lead to some very disappointing meals. Fortunately, La Pasadita is an exception to that disappointment. This taco truck parked at a former Shell gas station complete with sit down dining inside the former gas station market and seating […]

Review: Naughty Chili

This is our third cross-country road trip from Los Angeles to Michigan in the past four years. Of course, I’m always on the lookout for tacos when driving by gas stations.

Review: Benitos Taco Shop

There are very few taco stands in gas stations around Los Angeles.  So, I have to get more creative on what a “Gas Station Taco” is which leads me to today’s review of Benito’s Taco Shop on Fairfax and Beverly Boulevard. Benitos sits next door to a Shell gas station near The Grove and CBS […]

Review: Woodys’ Burger Hut & Taqueria

This week’s SxSW Interactive event had me going through some photos from last year, since I decided to skip attending SxSW.  While looking through my images, I noticed a few from a taqueria north of Austin I made a stop at on my way to Louie Mueller Barbecue in Taylor, Texas. It’s never a good […]

Review: Tacos El Grullense E&E #3

I am thankful for Yelp.  Not because of the reviews, most are worthless. Instead, I find it a great resource for simply searching “gas station taco” and seeing what results it returns.  Most results are not gas stations with taco stands. A lot of results are people talking about a nearby gas station or sometimes […]

Review: Shell Station on Huntington Drive (El Sereno)

Commuting in Los Angeles is an art.  The fine art of traffic jam avoidance.  Even with in-vehicle navigation and the Internet, one still finds the best advice comes from word-of-mouth from those you know and, in this case, from people you work with every day. One evening I followed a co-worker who wanted to show […]
