Louie Loves: B.S. Taqueria

Never enough tacos. Never enough tequila. This has been our go to pre-Staples center spot for months now. (Though we Just learned they have an outpost IN Staples Center now!) It’s quick and delicious and they have what we think is the best happy hour downtown. Lets start with the starters because you really must get the bean dip, which is worlds better than it sounds. There are also the Duritos which are little seasoned puffy, crunchy, crispy chip things – highly addictive. There are regular chips and salsa too – delivered to your table in a charming little brown bag. Plus chicken chicharrones. The tacos are all pretty tops – our faves are the carnitas, clams + lardo , and mushroom but the shrimp also a frequent order. The chicken is the least exciting, but a very safe option for the unadventurous. Strangely we also LOVE the green salad here. It’s the perfect side for the tacos – very simple, crisp and fresh. The carne asada and chile verde are quite good if you want to venture into the main territory. You can get them with tortillas to make your tacos or keep it carb free. Also love the veggie options – beet tortas and cauliflower al pastor. A little lighter but still flavorful and rich. Ok so on to the drinks. At happy hour you an pick from a list of A+ options for only $6 or go for a $4 shot or $2 Tecate. $2! Our fave from the happy hour menu is definitely the Pablo B. Paloma. Even if you’re paying full price, the drinks are definitely worth it. Try the Gordo Cup with cucumber and mezcal. Also big fans of the B.S. Handshake – their take on a Michelada – and the street cocktail where you can choose your booze and soda combo. Sold yet? See you there.
