My Favorite Taco ~ Mary Elizabeth Ellis

10:52 AM PST on November 14, 2006


Mary Elizabeth Ellis has quite a range if you've seen her theater work in one of LA's tiny and typically empty black box theater productions. But you've probably seen her pop up more frequently playing cute young things (and inbred twins) on your TV device. With frequent appearences on "House," "Reno 911," and Molly Shannon's "Cracking Up," Mary Elizabeth is the consumate working actress in LA. Now that we have a chance to see her regularly in the hilarious ensemble work of "Always Sunny in Philadelphia" which is about to start its third season, we get our MEE fix more often. But where does this Mississippi transplant go for her Mexican food fix?

Mary Elizabeth Ellis, what is your favorite taco?

"I originally pronounced tortillas: 'tor-till-yahs.' But not to worry, I get it now! I love me some tacos and chimichangas from the Echo Park El Compadre. I love it so much, I had my bacheorette party there, WOO! The mariachi band rocks, and they do requests! Oh-and the margaritas-yum! Margaritas!"

Ten (Mostly) Recognizable ‘Repo Man’ Locations You Can Visit 40 Years Later

The original film somehow managed to cohesively fuse weathered, jaded repo men, L.A.’s burgeoning punk scene, UFO cultists, generically-labeled food items, and nuclear proliferation into a dark comedy that is both a product of its time and yet feels somewhat timeless.
