Great report Ellen, nice to meat ya Marlene!

I think my favorite so far is the corn, with a twist of lime. Looks like LA is a tough place to find good Q. Thanks for doing the homework for us.

WJ, Best taco I ever had was at a roadside stand as I was walking across the border in TJ.

    TJ has the best tacos! However, it's not safe there anymore.

    Brad, your brisket still looks like chunks or pulled. Mine was all strings. Tough, hard to chew tasty strings!

      Now THAT'S brisket! Unfortunately, Marlene just got the STRINGS!

        Ellen, if you ever get to Playa del Rey again, there is a super road food joint there called "The Shack", a burger place, try the Shackburger, Loisiana hot link charbroiled on top of the charbroiled patty, unforgettable!

        I know THE SHACK... I used to like it much better in years past..
        I used to actually live in Playa Del Rey back in '92, while I was working for the airlines and dealing poker.
        gave THE SHACK one more shot a year a half ago during my previous L.A. visit. (for old times sake!) The burger was underwhelming to me, and the roll could've been fresher. I noticed that many recent reviews on yelp.com are feeling like I did. For those that like sausage, though, that SHACKBURGER with the hot link is the way to go.
        I do love the surfer vibe in there, and sitting outside.
        And fellow Roadfooders may even like the burger; it's not a bad burger, but it was just okay to me...
        I confess I did go in there during my most recent L.A. visit, but just slipped in their side door to use their bathroom.

          Boy, how I wish you sent that brisket back, Marlene!
          You deserved a plate of real good babybacks instead!

          Yes, TJ has such crime problems with all those drug cartels, kidnappings, shootings, etc..
          I think I'll just stick to those good $1.50 L.A. tacos;
          I'm even happy going through the drive thru at Albierto's!
          We don't have those kind of deep fried tacos shells around my way....
          the way the melted cheese and shredded beef all blend together....
          That's the typical L.A. taco and I love it!

            How dare they try to pass off North Carolina BBQ at those California prices!
