You’ve been wondering about Trejo’s Tacos. You got used to going there before a Pasadena Playhouse performance, or while perusing the cool local shops in the area, before the world closed.

Where in the cilantro did they disappear to? Chill. It’s back, just not in the same location.

Bad boy teen gangster turned convict turned movie star Danny Trejo has moved his Pasadena locale to join a host of other takeout and delivery eateries at Kitchen United Mix.

The taqueria features a menu Trejo remembers from his mother’s kitchen from his Echo Park days, so the story goes. Not exactly street tacos, but not designer food, either. And while we’re on the subject, you can buy one taco, get $5 off your second taco with code TREJOS when you order through @kitchen_united! The offer is good through January 31st.

Trejo’s joins other dining spots at the shared kitchen outlet, from Fresh Brothers Pizza, Greenleaf, Capriotti’s, and Moma’s Musubi, among others.

Come for the tacos, stay for everything.

Kitchen United Mix is at 55 S. Madison Avenue, Pasadena.

    Nice article about a restaurant where most everything in a taco is tasteless. I’ve lived near the Woodland Hills location for over 60 years and have been disappointed theee times. El Toreao in old Pasadena
    is a 1000% better. I loved Machete and Danny in Mi Vida Loca, But the Woodland Hills location is not that popular once the ‘newness’ has worn off.

      I really gave them a try and it’s no exaggeration to say this is the worst restaurant I’ve been to in Pasadena.
