Or the old Pippity-Pow taco truck that used to sit on SF and Alameda every weekend night.
Guisados Wants to Dominate Downtown Burbank Next
Local taco favorites Guisados just can’t seem to stop opening restaurants. It says a lot about the homegrown company’s product and perseverance in a market already saturated by tacos that owner Armando de la Torre and his son Armando Jr. are willing to drop a fifth location in nearly as many years, this time right in the thick of downtown Burbank.
Signage is up as of yesterday on the space along North San Fernando Boulevard, across from Tender Greens and deep in the suburban core of the neighborhood. The storefront is a former juice shop that’s currently finishing up construction both inside and out, which means that by the end of September guests will be able to mosey in for a sampler platter themselves — or to eat the whole menu.
It figures that Burbank would get a big “taco” place exactly when the bottom is starting to fall out of the taco market.
Don’t tell anyone, but the new thing in this direction is what some in Southern California used to call antojitos — cheap combination plates with tacos, rellenos, tortas, tamales, and enchiladas etc. in any big or small combination. That’s what’s needed.
Tacos? Find a truck. Like La Viagra!
You can grab some Yolanda’s while you’re there.
