VIP Tacos was founded by club promoters Juan Del Rio and Eligio Sanchez in November 2014. Del Rio and Sanchez were disappointed with the options they had to eat after getting off work in the early hours of the morning. Tired of constantly looking for a place to eat and seeing the potential market in hungry club-goers, Del Rio and Sanchez teamed up and VIP Tacos was born.
Situated just a stone’s throw away from Disneyland in the heart of Orange County, California, VIP Tacos is also just a few miles away from some of the hottest bars and nightclubs in Southern California. This, combined with VIP Tacos’ late hours, has made it a go-to place for many after-parties.
VIP Tacos prides themselves on their recipes, all of which are original from Mexico. Their food is fresh and is not prepared until you order it. Some of their most popular dishes include Quesadilla VIP, a massive 12-inch Quesadilla; their Mulita, which is two handmade tortillas with your choice of meat, Monterey Jack cheese, and handmade chorizo.

“Our tacos are really popular,” said owner Juan. “We sell at least 2-3000 every Taco Tuesday.”
