Where to Eat after the Angels Game: Taqueria Mexico

Driving around Anaheim after an Angels game or a concert at The Grove of Anaheim can feel like you are driving around a ghost town -- wide, empty streets with nothing but Taco Bell signs as evidence of life. But there is a haven for your beer-soaked belly. Cruise on down Katella to the strip mall lights of Taqueria Mexico. They are open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. In fact, one patron says that during a six month period during the 80s they didn't even have a front door.

The Rodriguez family has been running the little taqueria/donut shop for over 20 years, as well as four other taquerias. Taqueria Mexico shines with the variety meats. The buche is soft and moist without the usual gristle. The cabeza was more beef than fat, with a heavy meaty weight to it. The pastor taco has a nice seasoning, but the meat is not the best. Still, the tortillas are soft, the salsa is hot and the servers are smiling. What more can you ask for late at night when all you need is a couple of 95-cent tacos to carry you the rest of the way home?
