  • Everyone loves us, I mean we love them, we smile when they pass by.

  • Villas Tacos in Los Angeles has set up shop under grandparent's lawn and are serving up delicious street food... front yard food from their Instagram to your car.

  • Tacos, mulitas, and quesadillas with your choice of protein and several amazing secret family recipe salsas.

  • We love this place. We've been coming every week since we found out.

  • Well, this is our grandparent's house, so we always used to play with our cousins here like every Sunday when we're little.

  • We got to see, you know, the neighborhood and be part of it, and now serve it.

  • It's really, it's really something special.

  • On the menu, you got this here, you got the handmade blue corn tortillas.

  • We take this masa and we make it into tortillas for tacos, mulitas, and quesadillas.

  • All our meats are grilled over mesquite charcoal.

  • We have pollo, chorizo, asada and then vegan options:

  • We have black bean, and ensalada de nopales, which is a cactus salad; potatoes and they should look like this. Nice and crispy here.

  • It goes to the finishing station.

  • We throw in this salsa, that salsa, hibiscus pickled onions.

  • Once it's finished bagging, out the door. It allows maximum efficiency with the given space that we have.

  • You hear that?

  • That's what I'm talking about.

  • Let's go!

  • Really, truly colorful, especially the tacos.

  • - You guys, like, seven layers of different colors. - Exactly. Yeah.

  • You also had to consider how they would taste together, right?

  • Well, I figured what are some of my favorite toppings and what would have made my ideal taco? My taco of choice?

  • If I were to go a taqueria and I had all these tools at my disposal, how would my taco look?

  • How do you like working with your family?

  • Um, it wasn't always like this.

  • Um, it wasn't always the family working with us.

  • When we were on York Boulevard, it was pretty much just like me and a couple of buddies, but, you know, we're right here. But before, but before.

  • No. Let's ask that question again.

  • So what's it like working with the family?

  • I like it.

  • I mean, my sisters, I'm with them sometimes, you know. Sometimes we could get on each other's nerves, but that's when we just gotta get together and get through the day.

  • Villas Tacos has a simple menu of tacos, molitas, and quesadillas with your choice of carne asada, chicken or chorizo, combined with any six of the Villas family salsas,

  • and you have food so delicious you'll forget you're eating it off the hood of your car on a noisy street.

  • I try every spot that I possibly can, big, small, medium whatever.

  • And what he's doing is just totally, totally different. There's nothing like it.

  • Texture is different, the flavors are different. Just visually, they're probably some of the prettiest tacos you've ever seen.

  • So, Instagram has helped us out a lot.

  • We don't have, we don't use a major ordering system. We are our ordering system.

  • We announced when we're taking orders and through direct messages, they're able to contact us.

  • Say, hey, you know what? 7:20, 7:25 works better for me. We locked them in.

  • They sent our order, then from there, we write their order on this here. That's how we control the line. We control the flow of things.

  • - Thank you. - Goodnight. - Have a good one.

  • Villas (Tacos) starts with fresh pressed blue corn tortillas.

  • Best way to enjoy tortilla is a fresh, fresh tortilla, made just seconds before it gets topped off with that beautiful meat and all those toppings.

  • - Blue was an interesting colour. - I had never tried a blue corn tortilla. Can you believe that?

  • And I thought, how many other people in Los Angeles were just like me and I decided to go with handmade blue corn tortillas. That was gonna be my thing.

  • This is mesquite carbon, mesquite charcoal.

  • Why mesquite?

  • That's all we use. Flavor from the smoke from the wood.

  • It's the only way to do it, the only right way to do it.

  • It's grill here. This is the one that we started off with.

  • Her name is Maria, and then this one here, this is ripped and this is his twin brother, Marty.

  • Now it's gonna start.

  • It's gonna start popping, so be careful.

  • That's why we have our fire extinguisher here, just in case.

  • We're gonna fill this grill up here.

  • We cook it this way.

  • We let it cook for about 20-25 minutes, slow and slow.

  • We don't rush it because sometimes I go places, you know, to try their food and the fire is all the way at the top, and it's just, the heat is excessive.

  • This it's... it's actually grilling, you know, we're grilling and we're chilling.

  • As mentioned before, there are six family salsas.

  • So this one here is magma salsa. That's a red salsa.

  • So we have salsa guacamole, and we have actual guacamole chunky.

  • This is a tomatillo-based salsa, mango pico de gallo.

  • And then we have our roasted salsa. This is my dad's recipe.

  • So you mix this with this, and that is a recipe that his dad showed him.

  • - It's a three generation salsa in it? - Correct.

  • This one is my recipe.

  • This is the mango habanero. We use almost four liters.

  • We have fourteen liters of guacamole today. Fourteen.

  • This is our, the Works vegan taco here, starts off with your handmade blue corn tortilla.

  • Next step. You add some homemade black beans.

  • Let that get nice and hot there.

  • We got our soyrizo with grilled onions and grilled pineapple, 100% vegan.

  • For the first time we found out about it, we've been telling friends. We're picking up the orders for other people now.

  • The first hour is the busiest because we're trying to get everything in order, but then the last hour is the busiest as well.

  • Because we're taking chances then and we might just be accepting a couple orders.

  • Yo, yo, yo. What up, Instagram? It's about that time again.

  • Villas Tacos is in the building. Bye bye, baby.

Everyone loves us, I mean we love them, we smile when they pass by.
