Reviews of Three Mexican Restaurants in Los Angeles, California

Los Angeles CA Restaurant TacosTuition Tacos is located at 11136 Palms Boulevard in Los Angeles, California. Owners, Hector and Michelle got their start when they would give free tacos to low-income students to inspire them to go to college. The tacos became so famous, Hector and Michelle decided to sell them at the Redlands Market Night every week. They did not set a price for their tacos, they just asked for donations.

The donations became so big that Hector and Michelle began to not only give out free tacos, they were able to provide scholarships to thousands of kids that went to college. Education became a passion for Hector as he was a high school dropout. He got a 0.0 GPA during his first year at community college and he considered dropping out of there as well.

A college professor saw potential in Hector and gave him encouragement as well as one hundred dollars so he could purchase books for his class. Hector went on to get a master’s and bachelor’s degree receiving top honors. His goal to pay it forward became a reality when he opened Tuition Tacos.

Their hard work has paid off and they are now considered the largest and most awarded caterer in the greater Los Angeles area. They may only have one hundred and seventeen online posts, but they have a strong four-point-nine-star rating.
