The Little Taco House is tiny counter-service spot on a quiet stretch of West 4th Street filled with mostly expensive townhouses and Golden Globe nominees walking their dogs. There isn’t much room to sit, but it’s a great option for some quick takeout. We like the tacos just fine - just know that the burritos and tortas are the best things here. Get either with chorizo or carnitas, and you have yourself a very good hand-held meal.
