Taco Lita is unchanged by time and the big chains. They still make quality fast food just the same way they did in the 60s. No wonder they've lasted so long. They shred the lettuce a very specific way, it great in a jumbo burrito. But, come hungry, its BIG.

Total Old School Burrito place and an institution in Arcadia. Combo burrito is the best. Not real Mexican food, but white boy old school eats. Just right for a Saturday lunch...

With no pictures - we were expecting a restaurant - no - this is a cute little joint with an awesome staff that whips up a great Burrito Jumbo. It is a fast food place !! (My husband is still laughing at me - expecting to have a margarita or two.) The food is hot and fresh and so good.... More

This has always been my favorite place to eat in California. I love the Burrito Jumbo with no tomatoes. That is the best ever. The Taco Lita taco sauce tastes perfect with it. Delicious food and very cheap. I used to drive all over California to go to Arcadia to satisfy myself at times. I even ate there every day... More

I grew up in Southern California and moved to Northern California. I didn't miss anything but our friends and Taco Lita. Feeling particularly overworked, I jumped at my husband's offer of a road trip just to get a jumbo bean and cheese burrito at Taco Lita. Why? because for over 40 years they have been making the best Southern California... More

If you are looking for the most generic mexican food then this is the place for you. I always thought that Taco Bell held that honor but Nope this is the place.

I've been going to Taco Lita since the 1970's. It was here when I earned my freedom (learned how to drive) and is just a hop skip and a jump from the high school that we consummed many a JUMBO BURRITO. So, yeah, there are a lot of good times wrapped up with Taco Lita. Not only that, the food... More

I have been going to Taco Lita for years, they have the best greasy Combo Burritos. Their Hot Sauce is also a favorite. They are a lot more expensive than most gringo taco stands but are worth it for the priceless grease.
