Lil’ Taco Shack at Glen Ivy RV Park

This entry is part 3 of 6 in the series Glen Ivy RV Park

Located in the back corner of the Glen Ivy RV Park, near the swimming pools and Poison Ivy Bar, is an unassuming door that leads to the Lil’ Taco Shack. Both the restaurant and full service bar are open to the public. The Taco Shack is the restaurant onsite and is open to all ages, while the bar is obviously restricted to adults ages 21 and older.

The Lil’ Taco Shack is run by Al and Alicia, a friendly husband and wife team. From our personal experience this means service tends to run a little slower than you may like, especially for Taco Night, as there are only two employees. You may wish to go a little earlier than planned or expect a wait when you get there. The parking lot can be an indicator; expect a longer wait if it’s full. If you are staying at the park, then call your order in. Our pickup order was ready in less than 10 minutes!

Although they serve mostly Mexican food there are also some American dishes available as well, like the Bacon Cheeseburger on the lunch menu. More common Mexican foods that you’ll find are tacos, quesadillas, taquitos, and even a twist on the Tres Leches Cake (Mocha 3’s Leches Cake).

One of the best parts is EVERYTHING on the menu is $10 or less! Actually there is only one item that is $10 and that’s the Shack Platter. It’s a sampling of different appetizers including taquitos, jalapenos rellenos, quesadilla strips, and tortilla chips with a spicy bean dip. It is also served with fresh quacamole, sour cream and salsa.

What are Mexican Street Tacos?

Taco Night's Chicken Mexican Street Tacos at Lil' Tack Shack Street tacos are handheld tacos that contain only a few simple ingredients; corn tortillas, meat, chopped onion and cilantro. Although surprisingly simple, don’t be surprised when they don’t always taste the same.

Years ago, before we went Paleo, my favorite type of taco was the Mexican Street Taco. I’d choose either carnitas or chicken, add a squeeze of lime, and perhaps a little Tapitio hot sauce. However, the only place I had found where they were any good was a little Mexican market/restaurant in San Clemente called La Tiendita.

At the time we were living in Orange County and that meant a 30-45 minute drive just for tacos! (I love you Branndon for going with me so many times.)

Recently I did ‘cheat’ on Paleo to try these tacos from Lil’ Taco Shack and they were delicious. Just like I remembered; 2 small corn tortillas, chunks of juicy marinated chicken, chopped onion, and chopped cilantro. I added a squeeze of lime and wished I didn’t add the Tapitio. I added too much and my mouth was burning the whole time I ate them.

However, these street tacos are generally small. You may need more than you think to feel full.

If you aren’t in the area and want to try these for yourself, then you’ll want to head to a Latino neighborhood near you. There are often street cart vendors (often with tamales as well) or taco trucks. Or if you want to make them at home yourself there’s a great article on Men’s Health, “Real Tacos, Real Fast.”


What is ‘Al Pastor’?

Al pastor tacos are basically the Mexican version of gyros. The chuck of meat, commonly pork, is traditionally spit-grilled and then sliced.

One comment

  1. The Taco Shack has Mexican street tacos that are very good. Unfortunately, they have switched Taco Night to Tuesdays only and the ad above showing a 2X$1 price is all over the Internet but they will not honor it. They are good and probably worth the regular price but don’t figure to get the low price except on Tuesdays.
