Re inventing the truth accurately is man’s greatest skill.
Reinventing the taco accurately is Chef Wes Avilas’ greatest skill.
From the humblest beginnings.
Just one man and a cart.
Guerrilla: referring to actions or activities performed in an impromptu way, often without authorization.
Tacos: a Mexican dish consisting of a fried tortilla, typically folded, filled with various mixtures, such as seasoned meat, beans, lettuce, and tomatoes.
Guerrilla Tacos: a rogue culinary force, led by Chef-General Wes Avila, that has risen from the harsh jungle streets of Los Angeles to international super stardom.
An army whose recipes Sir Jonathan Gold has proclaimed as some of the best things to eat in L.A.
Recipes that caused L.A.Weekly to name Guerrilla Tacos LA’s Best Taco truck.
Believe you me that we know all taco trucks weren’t created equal.
We also know that Ten Speed Press and Random House don’t give book deals to just anyone.
Guerrilla Tacos was born with one purpose.
To make tacos great again.
Now it is time to behold that vision turned to reality.
What has been underground is now about to rise into the worlds collective culinary consciousness.
“Guerrilla Tacos: Recipes from the streets of LA” is about to drop.
Like Dodger Stadium fireworks that explode with force every Friday night over Chavez Ravine.

A native Angeleno whose writings will change Taco night at your casa forever.
Chef Wes Avila.
With a Sharpie in hand to sign his self written Declaration of Culinary Independence.
An LA son who is going to make it.
A stranger from the curb who will now be your brother in the kitchen.
