Disneyland Visitors: Don't Visit Tacos y Pupusas, No Matter How Broke You Are
The worst example is Tacos y Pupusa in Anaheim, in a section of the city not far from Disneyland that we'll call the Damned Kingdom. It's nestled on a sad strip mall wedged between the 5 Freeway and a no-tell motel, and the clientele is among the saddest, most-worn down I've ever seen: methed-out gabachos, cholos, old African-American ladies who look as if life dealt them a haymaker decades ago. I once saw a convention-goer walk in, get a bewildered look on his face from all the human misery around him, and glumly take a chair next to a Mexican mom who kept yelling at her poor kids. Child Services? You should park an employee at this restaurant nightly--I'm just saying.
The food? Expensive ($2 for tacos made from cold tortillas), bland (horchata that tastes like caulk), and simply mysterious: when the convention-goer asked what were those meats sitting under heat lamps and in a pool of liquid, the lady at the counter couldn't answer. The service is non-existent, the floors dirty, and they won't clear the dishes off the table until you sit down. This just might be the worst restaurant in Orange County--STAY AWAY. The Del Taco across the street is better.
