Danny Trejo Opening Mexican Restaurant in Huntington Beach!

If you pick up this week's issue of LA Weekly, you'll notice it's our mother paper's People Issue, where the great, the weird, and the wacky of Los Angeles get mini-profile. Reading them is always a treat, especially when there's hints of Orange County, but my jaw dropped when reading the profile of Danny Trejo, the chingón former con turned bad-ass actor--MACHETE MACHETE MACHETE!

Anyhoo, buried in the piece is this fascinating tidbit: Trejo plans to open a Mexican restaurant in Huntington Beach.

The piece says it'll be called Trejo's Place, which goes against what Trejo told a gossip blog last February--that it was going to be Trejo's Tacos. Regardless, Trejo has an affinity for Surf City--during last winter's Hollywood Christmas Parade, Trejo wore a hat from 2nd Floor, the restaurant-cum-tattoo-gallery. Will Machete open a Bro-Mex joint? A Mexi dive to rival Taquería Don Victor? Inquiring minds want to know!

It could be "Trejos Tacos n' Check-Cashin Stripateria" and I'd still go check it out. Machete-T rocks! Chicano- cum- hillbilly does the soul good!

Whatever he does, I hope he makes some authentic, down- home, kind of Mexican food. From all the "taquerias" I've been to in HB, almost all of them are watered-down, over priced versions of their Santa Ana counterparts. And yes, this includes Don Victor, Tacos Jerez, Trejo's Taqueria, and whatever other taquerias/Mexican dives there may be. Only good one I've been to is Chavito's Lonchera just off of Slater. So ditch the Fred's, Mario's, and Javier's flavors, and PLEASE Machete, become HB's saving grace in the world of Mexican cuisine. They desperately need it.

I wonder if Machete knows there's a Trejo's already in HB on the corner of Beach and Slater. Somebody text him...even though Machete don't text!

The joint on Springdale and Westminster is great, and only tacos, no burritos

And said Trejo's is right across the street from Taquería Don Victor.
