Had the carne asada - all meat burrito from here with the red sauce. It is great, a little greasy if you are on a diet. The red sauce is hot. go for the green sauce if you can't handle spice.
You can add rice, beans, cilantros, onions inside your burrito or go without.

Extra red salsa on those pastor tacos, please! The pastor tacos are the BOMB! The lengua tacos with the green salsa are so good that you'll regret not ordering more since you normally have to wait around fifteen minutes to order. My favorite King Taco location is the one on 3rd and Ford because when I was little we used to go there and not all the locations taste the same to me. I had Sopes for the first time at the restaurant and I personally will stick to the pastor and lengua tacos. They're also a good deal!

If you're there on a weekend, you can get a whole or half chicken with beans (frijoles de la olla), tortilla chips, corn tortillas, great salsa verde and the bird(s). You can also go in front of the building and grab an al pastor burrito, with everything, red sauce. Or a sope with carnitas. Or lengua... It's all good, and if you have friends who have never experienced the joys of East L.A. get a few things and share. If you're there on a weekday, forget that rotisserie chicken - they're Friday-Sunday only.

No matter what location you are at the lines will be long. This location is open 24 hours which is always a super plus in my book.

Well yes, they have very good tacos and normally I don't get other things from places that have their specialty in the name. Like King Taco, you should get TACOS, not anything else...but here they have really good rotisserie chicken. So at times I will order it, as well as sopes and burritos. The food is tasty.

I like that they have a variety of meats including lengua and cabeza. I've had cabeza a few other places and it seems nowhere cleans the fat as well as King Taco does.

The tacos are the small 3 inch tortillas so you can easily eat 3 of them. If you are super hungry you will need more.

The service here is quick and to the point. Welcome, what can I get for you? Pay them, here's your number and wait until it's called, get your food and enjoy!

Need a good street taco close to the 60 and 710? You can't beat King Taco. Even with construction on the 710, we make it to the King. Whether you eat indoors or take your food home, you won't be disappointed. Our usual orders are Carne asada or chicken tacos and sopes. The meat is seasoned so well you don't need anything else. Cooks are happy and friendly and service is quick. You know it's good when the firemen go there to eat!
