Whac-a-mole Tacos

Exterior of Whac-a-mole Tacos on the Santa Monica Pier

Opened from 2017 – 2021, Whac-a-mole Tacos was a midway-themed taco shop inside Pacific Park.

Whac-a-mole might be a weird name, but we like to think we upped our taco and loaded nacho game with this taco place. Mexican inspired, authentic Los Angeles street-style tacos were served made-to-order with your choice of grilled steak, pollo asado (marinated chicken), or carnitas (slow-cooked, pulled pork). The loaded nachos were also a big hit – many topped with cheese, steak, chicken, pork, and jalapenos. Whac-a-mole Tacos also served a variety of traditional Mexican dishes including quesadillas and tortas.
