My Favorite Taco ~ Edward James Olmos


"Go For Sisters" is the latest film starring Los Angeles film icon Edward James Olmos. The film is directed by two-time Academy Award nominee John Sayles (Lone Star, Matewan) and stars Olmos, LisaGay Hamilton ("The Practice"), and Yolonda Ross (HBO's "Treme").

Edward James Olmos grew up in L.A. and attended Montebello High School, but where does he get his tacos?

For me and tacos it's "el Tepeyac".... Great portions for honest pricesand authentic tastes... "Tacos de res or pollo" .... On N. Evergreen Ave... Heart of East LA... It's a "Go For Sisters" kind of place....

GO FOR SISTERS opens 11/15 at the Landmark NuArt Theatre
There will be special Q&A's with Edward James Olmos, John Sayles and LisaGay Hamilton following the 7:00pm shows on Friday 11/15 and Saturday 11/16!
