Meanwhile, Hugo's Tacos Has Opened in Atwater Village

AS ANTICIPATED here on the Newbie blog back in April, Studio City's Hugo's Tacos has expanded into Atwater Village. It's now open at 3300 Glendale Blvd.

Urban Daddy says Hugo's has "almost too many options," with "crunchy or soft shell, seven salsas (from mild to not-mild to Honey Chipotle) and seven fillings, from the usual chicken and steak to our favorite, the Soy Chorizo, Potato and Zucchini specialty."

Across from neighborhood mainstay Tacos Villa Corona, Hugo's may have a fighting chance (despite cheesy signage) if it maintains regular 11:00a.m. to 11:00p.m hours. And if it takes plastic.

UPDATE: And if they're not jerks about substitutions.

We went last night and it was lovely. Try the spicier salsas and the al pastor anything. Tacos are a little tiny, maybe soft tacos are better. I'll have a couple pics and more details up today or tomorrow.

Oh and it won't compete with villa corona in the morning because they open much earlier. At least they won't compete for early breakfast.

And villa corona won't compete for evening, as they close early.

Acapulco on the other hand may have some stiff competition.

I have never been to Atwater Village, but it sounds sweet.

UPDATE: Substantial line of customers at the Hugo's Tacos window last night, between 6:00pm and 7:00pm.

Acapulco is one of the worst corporate food chains ever. It's an atrocity that it even exists in Atwater Village. The only thing I can think of that would be worse is an Outback Steakhouse. Keep Glendale in Glendale!

Eh, acapulco isn't so bad. But, I agree, let's try to keep the big chains out of our little slice of (mostly) bucolic heaven. When you buy local, you help your neighbors.
