Never had a King Torta before, but would definitely go back! They are very tasty and just right for lunch. I would forego the restroom, which gave me the willy's. We at on the porch outside and had a good meal. I'd go again when in the area!

If you've never had a torta it's like a taco sand which ! I see their catching on in some chain restaurants ! But this place specializes in them ! My favorite is the carne asada ! Try it you'll like it ! I usually go once a week I'm hooked !

Whenever I'm in the area, I can count on this place to deliver a great tasting meal at a price that's hard to beat. Their steak tortas are consistently good and their nachos are always guaranteed to finish off whatever leftover hunger pangs I might have. I'm giving it four stars only because the atmosphere is strictly fast food, but... More

Service was quick. Got super nachos, two hard tacos and a drink for $12. Awesome to have shredded beef in a taco by the way and not frickin' ground beef. The steak nachos were pretty good. Not the best, but for the price I was impressed.

Honestly the tortas are worth 4 stars but the overall experience is 3 stars. I got the carnitas torta which was good. The avocado was buttery, although still, I do wish overall the torta had a little more flavor. The atmosphere is lacking. It feels like a fast food chain inside. If your in the neighborhood I would give it... More

One of the things about Los Angeles is that either (a) every second restaurant claims to have the best Mexican something or other or (b) residents will tell you such and such a place has the best Mexican ... the problem is it's a different restaurant every time. Yes, it's true LA, especially East LA has some great places, but... More

While I do eat mostly Asian food, KT is one of the few Mexican places that I can eat over and over again. I'm sure that there are other good hole in the walls, I'm always sure that the food here is consistently good. I usually order a torta and share the nachos with the amigos as well. I just... More

King Torta's is a little out of the way and tucked away in an industrial area, not exactly the kind of place that you would normally see as a tourist. We were visiting Hollywood for a week and visited the place because it was on several 'best sandwiches in LA' lists. It didn't disappoint. While the famed 'El Pastor Torta'... More
