Taco Tuesday deals in L.A.
Highland Park's dive-turned-Mexican-cocktail-den is Día de Los Muertos themed, and skulls, skeletons and upside-down bats unapologetically grace mezcal and tequila-lined shelves. The slightly kitschy, multi-room space hosts live music and DJ nights, including Taco Tuesdays, with DJ Sweet Caroline spinning tunes and free—yep, free—tacos with your drink orders after 10pm.
Malo is Silver Lake's answer to a South of the Border stay-cation, and it does things a little differently; Taco Tuesday on a Monday. Simply called "taco night," Malo offers all of their tacos for just $2 each from 4pm to close. Choose from hard shell options like braised chicken, mashed potato, beef or "mock ground beef," or more inventive soft shell versions such as chicken carnitas, baja shrimp, pork belly tinga or sugar pumpkin flower.
