Time Out says

Owners Victor Delgado and Jorge "Joy" Alvarez-Tostado didn't catch lighting in a bottle with their Tijuana-style tacos; they worked tirelessly, and with equal parts perfect product and total showmanship, the duo created one of L.A.'s most viral taco stands. Catch their team dressed in all red and tossing adobada from the trompo—and if Joy's there, making kissy faces at the crowd—for dinner and a show that can't be beat. And while the adobada is the star, we're also partial to the mushroom taco—order it as "perron" for cheese and beans—and the vampiros. For now, you can catch Tacos 1986 every Sunday at Smorgasburg in the Arts District, from 10am to 4pm, but keep your eyes on these guys because they've got a brick-and-mortart restaurant in the works. (And when it opens, we'll race you for being first in line.)
