No Contest

There are a lot of rivalries in Los Angeles. USC vs. UCLA; Coles vs. Phillips, Bloods vs. Crips. But there was one that I wasn’t even aware of until this week. Tito’s Tacos vs. Henry’s Tacos.

I grew up on Tito’s. When I moved away for college and came back for holidays, Tito’s was always on the itinerary. Henry’s is a place I’ve driven by every day, twice a day for the past six years but never been.

This week, our local NBC affiliate launched this lame online poll called the “Golden Local.” This week it’s Tito’s vs. Henry’s. I couldn’t think of a better time to try Henry’s, the only thing I knew about Henry’s going in is that it’s a favorite of Director Paul Thomas Andersen.

Frankly, I found it to be no contest. Tito’s rules, Henry’s drools. It’s very likely this is a Westside (Tito’s) vs. Valley (Henry’s) thing.

However, I have to say the googie signage at Henry’s is better than Tito’s but the food, no contest.

My favorite tacos were always Taco Bell's. Do you have them down there? But if it's a crispy bean burrito, Taco Time wins hands down!!
