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: La Fisheria in San Francisco

I wasn’t expecting to run into a gas station taco stop while test driving a Kia K900 at the dad blogger conference Dad 2.0 Summit, but I’m always checking whenever I pass a gas station. There it was a taco truck, under a Shell gas station sign on a Friday afternoon in the San Francisco […]

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 […]

Review: Jilberto’s Taco Shop

After a day of LEGOLAND, it was time to do some exploring in San Diego as a family.  We spent the morning checking out the shoreline and buying our boys their first skateboard.  For lunch, we headed northeast to Stone Brewery.  On the way there we passed an ARCO station with “TACO SHOP” signage.
