Carnitas Los Reyes

273 S. Tustin St. Orange, CA 92866 | Orange | 714-744-9337

Location Description:

The county's best taquería. This is where you come to worship the gospel of the $1.25 taco, an increasingly rare find in this era of continued Mexican immigration and rising tortilla prices. And a buck won't get you just a taco-truck taco: Carnitas Los Reyes uses tortillas as thick as a copy of The New Yorker and piles on the meat until it looks like a New York street-side gyro.
