At El Tarasco, guests can expect one of the more inexpensive meals in Gardena. The familiar atmosphere and reasonable prices allow customers to focus on what matters: the terrific food.
Defined by its outdoor seating, the restaurant is a fantastic option when you feel like soaking up some of those California rays. There's no specific recommended attire, so feel free to dress casually and comfortably. Also, though the prices are considered to be lower than average, you aren't going to sacrifice any quality. In fact, you should be able to enjoy a good meal for $11 or $12, and can probably get in and out for $8 if you try.
There really is something for everyone, with gluten-free options, as well as low-fat and vegetarian items on the robust menu. Plus, most local parents will tell you that it's a good place to bring the kids, as well. In addition to its convenient take-out offerings, the restaurant even provides catering for events around town.
A good spot in Hawthorne, El Tarasco definitely stands out from the rest.
