DTLA-A cult favorite taco haunt has opened a brick and mortar spot in Downtown Los Angeles.
Victor Delgado and Jorge “Joy” Alvarez-Tostado’s Taco 1986 began service this week at Sixth and Spring streets in the Historic Core. The restaurant celebrated a soft opening earlier this month by giving away free tacos to anyone who passed by the space.
The previously nomadic Taco 1986 started serving remotely last November, and gained a following for skillfully crafted Tijuana-style tacos (think hefty doses of creamy guacamole), quesadillas, mulitas and vampiros.
The team brings that same menu, filled with grilled beef, chicken, adobada and veggies, to the new space.
The restaurant is packed tightly into small a red-and-white storefront and there is counter space for those who dine in.
The restaurant operates daily from 11 a.m.-midnight with plans to extend hours.
