Tacos El Gavilan Coming to La Brea/Sunset

For quality of food, KoG wins. But especially with hot summer months coming, TeG looms more attractive.
----
Fair analysis, that's definitely what brought me into TeG @ 2pm on Sunday...

What did you get?

Have you been to any of the other $ H'wood taco shops to compare? Dos Burritos, Rincon Oaxaqueno, La Numero Uno?

Tacos El Gavilan Coming to La Brea/Sunset

I'm just a sample size of one. However, looking at their yelp, I'm not alone. The best parts of my meal were the pineapple agua and free grilled jalapenos (which were really, really good).

I'll probably try TeG again for their sopes/mulitas though.

pokinometry is quite spectacular esp. at that price. go before they close up.

Tacos El Gavilan Coming to La Brea/Sunset

I went to TeG on Sunday - I vastly prefer the taco truck across the way (king of grill)

The location is nice, the inside is nice and the salsa bar is nice though...

$1.35/taco, $1.85 regular drink $1.99 large drink

also agreed re: pokinometry, esp. at the ridiculous price of $7/small bowl.

LA Restaurateurs Think the $15 Minimum Wage Hike Spells Doom for the Industry

b) they may need to step aside and go out of business.
their clientele will go to the surviving operations or to new operations that are able to pay a living wage to their employees.
---
...and what happens to the laid off workers? Restaurants aren't magically going to open up their doors and hire additional staff when wages go up.

$15 minimum wage = great for anyone who can get a job.

Don't forget FICA + Workers Comp based on new, higher wages.

Really good Thai food in OC?

The one near Knotts was around first, they expanded to GG, GG burned down, the one near Knotts moved to their current location in Stanton, and then the GG one reopenned.

This was all ~1999-2006?

Shake Shack is coming

LOL thanks. that's an awesome link.

Note: One Double Shack Burger costs more than an entire meal at In-N-Out Burger.

Shake Shack is coming

Perhaps InO was different 30-40 years ago?

Anyway, I know it sounds like it but I'm really not trying to change your mind. We all know how it is, you can only give a place so many tries before giving up on them.

Shake Shack is coming

How did you get a frozen burger if they don't have freezer?

I mean seriously I've had hundreds of InO burgers and never once have I received an undercooked or cold burger. Consistency indeed.

Porto's Recipe Changes?

I'm starting to notice a large flavor change in the meat pies/potato balls - a much more pronounced olive flavor.

Anyone else?

Shake Shack is coming

a double shack burger is 7.30, fries is 2.70, drink is $2. x 4 + tax = $50

InO #1 is what, $7.50 all in?

No a big deal if you're a 1%'er on CH but if you're relatively poor, shake shack is hella expensive.

I guess that's why their first location is in West Hollywood and not Boyle Heights.

And FWIW, I do like both. But sometimes I'm poor as hell and want a burger, and in those instances InO pwns.

Shake Shack is coming

4 people @ Shake Shack = $50, 4 people @ InO = $25-30

might not matter to you, but does matter to some.

Vietnamese food in Little Saigon vs. SGV

as a little saigon expat I just assumed it was because little saigon is where the majority of vietnamese are.

I mean, you don't see many south vietnamese flags in SGV...

Sorry to hear that :( I'll have to circle back - no excuse for chewy.

And I did say to only get the FnC.
