Best Identity-Confused Cuisine (2011)

Taco Loco

Fusion can be a loaded term when it comes to cuisine, but Taco Loco wears the adjective like a badge of honor. Incorporating Californian, Southwestern and Cajun flavors into its recipes, Taco Loco delivers deliciously innovative, yet simple renditions of Mexican fare that kick the salivary glands and tame the belly. Although this little seaside joint serves up some mean mahi mahi, the fresh ingredients and loving preparation ensure that even the vegetarian options are able to hold their own. You know a place is good when kids from the LBC cruise all the way down to South County just to inhale a few blackened-mushroom tacos. In addition to serving up wholesome nosh, Taco Loco hosts a series of specials throughout the week that make sure your wallet doesn't go hungry, too. Loco Burgers, slathered in complimentary homemade guacamole, are priced from $4 to $5 on Mondays, and on Loco Tuesdays, you can get tacos for less than $2. What's more is that for two days out of the week, it's open until 2 a.m., which means you have an option to feast your face on something other than Del Taco after-hours. $$
