Good Tacos at LAX?! ~ Airport Now Serving Al Pastor at Terminal 4 [Updated]

[dropcap size=big]N[/dropcap]ext time you’re flying from LAX to Dallas you might have a chance to take a few al pastor tacos “para llevar” into the skies.

A taco outfit named Leo’s Xpress is open from 5:30 am to midnight in the Terminal 4 (the American Airlines hub) food hall in a stationary lonchera. [UPDATE: Leo's Xpress is unaffiliated with Leo's Tacos, according to a statement by the famed Mid-City lonchera.]

The Terminal 4 operation offers al pastor tacos as well as alambres, burritos, and tortas. In addition to the regular fare, Leo’s Xpress will have an all-day breakfast menu of huevos rancheros and breakfast burritos. Each plate will be served with frijoles and rice or salad. Of course, they will have their salsa bar for all your spice desires.

The move is part of LAX’s effort to showcase L.A.’s cuisine and what better choice than one of L.A.’s (and beyond) most beloved taqueros, the airport said in a statement published this week. Leo’s Xpress joins previous taco stands like Kogi who also had a stand at LAX modeled after a lonchera.

My only hope, while wholly unrealistic, is that they have a trompo outside with someone shaving glorious pieces of al pastor. Until my next trip out of Terminal 4, I'm happy to know that you all can get good tacos if you find yourself there.
