I’ll Be Back…: For more of the hard shell tacos!

Like myself, I'm sure you appreciate an irresistible deal ever so often (or always), which is why I'm an avid fan of Taco Tuesdays. Of course, Los Angeles doesn't have a shortage of places to pick from, but here's another Taco Tuesday destination to add on your radar: Fiesta Martin Mexican Grill.

Located on a bustling part of La Brea Ave. in Inglewood, this casual neighborhood eatery offers unbeatable deals in a festive ambiance.

This is one of the few places I've been where there's not only soft shell taco deals, but also discounts on the hard shell tacos. And you don't have to go with one or the other - pick only soft shells, only hard shells, or mix and match the two - there are no limits!

The toppings are quite expansive, ranging from several different sauces and salsas, to colorful garnishes and sides like pickled carrots. There's also a diverse selection of taco fillings: chicken, steak, marinated beef, shredded pork, BBQ pork, tongue...and even potatoes or beans, if you're ever in the mood for meatless options. I would almost recommend sampling them all, but they're so filling that most people I know only get through about three or four. As hard as I try, four is my personal max.

The ambiance makes this a great destination as well. The space itself is not big by any stretch of the imagination, but it feels cozy and warm and intimate, as if you're dining with 40 of your closest friends. At random points of the night, a mariachi band walks in and plays beautiful, melodic songs, taking requests for a nominal fee as well.

But most importantly - what makes this a great Taco Tuesday destination - is that everything is mad crazy cheap. $1 tacos. $5.49 margaritas. $1.50-$3 sides. A friend and I came here one time and got 8 tacos, 2 margaritas and a beer, all for like 20 bucks. Now that's what I call #winning.

So the next time you need to turn your Tuesday evening into a Taco Tuesday evening, head down to Fiesta Martin. The tacos and margaritas are delicious and cheap, and the ambiance relaxed and lively.

See you there soon!
