About Taco Pete: Taco Pete started in Los Angeles, CA in 1966 on the corner of Central Ave and 41st Street by
Reo, Sr. Reo decided to name the business ‘Taco Pete’ instead of Taco Reo, because all of his closest friends called him “PETE.” The name stuck and he did well with Taco Pete #1. He then ventured out and started Taco Pete #2 on Florence Ave. in Los Angeles. Business continued to grow and the demand for Taco Pete expanded, so Reo started Taco Pete #3 with the assistance of his son, Reo Jr. on the corner Central Ave and 120th Street. Taco Pete became a household name in the LA area and the vision expanded with Reo Jr opening “Taco Pete Jr” on Century Blvd in LA. Reo Sr ventured out in the Inglewood area of the greater LA area and opened Taco Pete #4 on Manchester Ave. These business all thrived and produced the best Tacos, Burritos, Fries, burgers and Pastrami in the area.
