Since 1995:
A Tradition of Flavor and Quality



At Tacos Al Vapor El Canelo, our story is one of passion, tradition and love for Mexican food.


It all started in 1995, in the corner of Kern and Olympic, when our founder decided to bring the unique flavor of steamed tacos to East Los Angeles.

Opening the actual location in 2010.

Since his wife's father called his grandson "El Canelo" because he had cinnamon-colored hair, it inspired him to call this company

"El Canelo"


Inspired by family recipes and the desire to offer a healthy and delicious alternative to fast food, Jorge began selling his tacos in a small establishment in the heart of the clients.


His dedication and the unmistakable flavor of his tacos quickly won the hearts of the locals.
