Taco Zone, the popular trailer serving Echo Park’s ironically mustachioed demographic by the dozens, doesn’t rank on our own list of favorite tortilla-shrouded spots, but sometimes there’s just no accounting for the taste of others. Simply put, the place needed a place to squire all the hipster hordes and—Voila!—it was done. The Vons-adjacent taqueria just debuted a new set of tables for its clientele and with it comes this sporty video in which three Taco Zoners brave the rain and a trip to Home Depot to D.I.Y. their own set of tables, presented with a ribbon cutting and taco chowdown, all to a Cubano soundtrack. One of the principals even bears a passing resemblance to James Franco, and come to think of it, this would be something he’d probably undertake. Take a look.
