Best Gas Station (2008)

Arco on Euclid Street, near Trask Avenue

Remember the days when you used to buy your gas based on which multinational was least evil? Neither do we. Forget that Arco is owned by British Petroleum and head toward Garden Grove. Not only is this station frequently ranked by websites that follow gas prices as selling the cheapest fuel in Orange County, but it's also next to Los Cotijas, a tiny shack that sells some of the finest fish tacos in Southern California. While your car fills up with $60 worth, run next door and order some tacos to go—to ease the pain. And if you tire of tacos, Tacos Los Amigos next door to that sells the softest barbacoa de borrego (lamb barbecue) outside of Deliverance territory.
