Chef Wes Avila is pulling the plug on his Guerrilla Tacos truck, in anticipation of the upcoming opening of his first brick-and-mortar restaurant in the Arts District. The final night of service will be next Thursday.

The easily-identifiable rig has been rolling around greater Los Angeles in one iteration or another for years, serving what many critics and diners across America consider to be some of the best modern Mexican food anywhere around. Prior to his current setup, Avila worked an older Dodger blue truck, and before that he was manning a standalone griddle outside of coffee shops in the Arts District.

Now Avila and the whole Guerrilla Tacos team is moving indoors, focusing their energies on a soon-to-open restaurant space in the former La Reyna space in the Arts District. Signage is already up and things are coming together fast, meaning a late summer or early fall opening is almost certain.

The final night of service for the Guerrilla Tacos truck in its current form will be Thursday, July 19. They’ll be posting up at Silverlake Wine, a longtime stop, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. that night, so expect some farewell shenanigans and lots of wine. In the meantime, Guerrilla will be keeping all of its usual stops in the days leading up to last call.
