Take 3 With Danny Trejo


The tough-guy actor (he grew up in Pacoima) stars in Bad Ass (out today) as an avenger on the L.A. Metro. Here are his favorite Mexican eats in the north Valley.

1) Big Jim’s
“On Saturdays, cowboys—real ones and from movie sets—come from all over.” 

2) Carrillo’s Tortilleria
“Everybody who’s anybody in San Fernando waits here for takeout. I always get the George Lopez Burrito.” 

3) El Indio
“I used to dream about their food when I went to the joint. There’s a mural of me. In Hollywood they give you a little star; in my neighborhood, a whole wall!”
