Vote, Vote: Taco Madness 2012 Down to Fateful Final 4!
We're jumping in the mix a little late in the action, since LA Taco's Taco Madness 2012 bracket-style showdown is in its "final four" stage, but there are still a few days left for you to have your say and speak up about who makes the best damn taco in Los Angeles.
These tense tortilla-encased final moments include last year's champ, Mexicali, pitted Guisado's, with the latter attempting to do what hasn't been done in the past couple of years: unseat Mexicali. Then there's Mariscos Jalisco against Tacos Baja Ensenada; as LA Taco puts it: "This battle of East Los Angeles seafood tacos should be one for the ages." Agreed: It's loco!
Where does your loyalty rest? Voting for the final four is open until midnight, Sunday, April 1. The finals will run from Monday the 2nd until Tuesday the 3rd at midnight when the city's 2012 favorite taco will be crowned.
