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: El Burrito Near Disneyland

It’s been far too long since I’ve done a review on GasStationTacos.com.  Fortunately, I was heading to VidCon a couple weeks ago at the Anaheim Convention Center and drove past a Shell station with what looked like a legit gas station taco stop.  After the VidCon event, I decided to make a quick stop for […]

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. A […]

Review: Arsenio’s

Last Thanksgiving weekend we decided to take a family trip to Northern California.  As we drove, I started to notice a trend I wasn’t expecting: gas station tacos. From Bakersfield through Fresno, there were at least five gas stations serving street tacos either in the station or with a taco truck parked in the lot. […]

Review: Pancho Villa’s

I’m fairly certain I may be the only person ever to order a goat and vegetarian taco in a single order.  Sure, I cannot be certain of this fact; however, the sheer juxtaposition of the two tacos alone was an interesting jolt for my taste buds and stomach. Coming back from a long weekend in […]

Review: Norma’s Tacos

When I lived in Dallas, I avoided the former gas stations or auto repair places converted into taco stands.  With so many working gas stations housing taquerias it wasn’t necessary to review former gas stations.  Here in Los Angeles it is a different story. There are few places with gas pumps where one can order […]

Review: Tacos La Estrella

Finding a gas station taqueria is not an easy challenge in Los Angeles. When I was in Texas it seemed I’d find a gas station selling tacos about 1 out of every 15 stations, but here in my new (or is it old since I was born and raised here) city I’m finding the ratio […]
