i used to get the shrimp or fish baja tacos. when the 2am hipsters came in, the prices got raised. the asada is just chopped meat, not real slabs or marinated flank steak. the carnitas are good.

Can't get enough of mexican food, why because fajitas are the bomb, I loved the taste and the chips they bring out first are extra good.

Unprepossessing taco place in the corner of a parking lot serving great tacos to eat at one of their half dozen outside tables or to take away. Most people seem to take away. The tortillas are fresh and the fillings are varied and delicious. Do...More

CACTUS TAQUERIA The best taco stand in L.A.-- NOT a food truck. HIGHLY recommend the Fish Tacos (consistently rated among the best in L.A.) and the California Burrito. If you are from out of town, this is the place. Easy to get to in Hollywood,...More

Cactus has the best tacos! We went two days in a row while visiting a friend in LA and we loved it! We tried carne asada tacos, guac and nachos, all were to die for!

Authentic Mexican food. Very small place. More of a "I'm hungry for Mexican" place than someplace you are going for an evening out. There are several picnic tables for outside seating. Prices are very very reasonable and the food delicious. Plastic forks and styrofoam plates....More

Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie
stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day,
tourists flock here from around the world to see the
iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to
catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close.
Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas
the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and
hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night
