If you’re in and around the north Valley area and need a quick taco fix, Lola’s in Granada Hills is decent option. Skip the “gourmet tacos,” which are all oversauced and unbalanced, and instead, concentrate Baja fish tacos. Big chunks of well-fried fish on a soft flour tortilla - they aren’t the greatest fish tacos in the world, but they’ll certainly do the trick. Lola’s also has a great Happy Hour on Monday and Tuesdays from 11am-6pm, where the baja fish and shrimp tacos are all under $3.
