Boston’s “King Tacos” Sued by LA’s King Taco

10:26 AM PDT on May 9, 2012

LA's King Taco is an institution, home to some of the world's favorite red salsa, location of Hillary Clinton's taco fiesta in LA, and the favorite taco of thousands of Angeleños. Today Grubstreet reports that the chain has filed suit against Boston's "King Tacos", a transparant attempt to give Boston some LA taco shine. It wouldn't be the first time that Boston takes one of our own to use against us.

Is the real King Taco planning to expand to the East Coast? They should-- while King Taco can't claim to be the very best taco in the world, it's leagues ahead of most east coast taquerias and would be one of the few current taco shop businesses that have the opportunity to go national.
