Unless you're a finicky "I only like authentic Mexican tacos" kind of chump; then you might want to skip it. (I love authentic Mexican tacos, too, but I pity disingenuous food snobs.)
You should definitely take the time to visit the beating heart of Mexican-Americanism and order three of the iconic taquitos from Cielito Lindo on Olvera Street. Cheesy, yes (I'm not talking about actual cheese here) but good food and a great experience. Olvera Street is just steps from Union Station, which is on the Red and Purple lines, easy peasy from downtown.
Jonathan Gold is the bomb.
Or you could just head to Central Avenue in Kent and stop at El Sabor.
But yeah, there's really no need to go to OC to get amazing tacos.
