In honor of Taco Madness being an event for the people, we decided to give our staff photographers the day off to enjoy their tacos, and instead collected some of our favorite photos from Instagram.

The day long event consisted of good vibes and delicious tacos in every direction, along with some of L.A.'s best graffiti artists doing their thing while being serenaded by the sounds of our favorite DJs. We couldnt help but notice how it seemed like we were hanging out in one of our Tio's back yards enjoying ice cold drinks and some of the most amazing tacos Los Angeles has to offer. The winner of our Best in Show taco was Tacos Cuernavaca-- our mystery judge said it was a very difficult decision because all of them were great, but Cuernavaca was the best.

Huge thanks to Villain's Tavern, Red Bull LAX, Azul212, AlexandertheGreatestofThemAll, and all the people who came out to celebrate Los Angeles and the taco lifestyle with us.
