"At LAX, we are committed to showcasing the flavors, businesses and cultures of Los Angeles, and I can’t think of a better way to do that than putting an incredibly popular local taco truck in one of our terminals,” said Jeffrey Utterback, Deputy Executive Director of Commercial Development, LAWA. “Part of creating a world-class airport experience is providing exceptional choices in food and dining, and Leo’s Xpress taco truck brings the best of Los Angeles to our guests and employees, while also providing an opportunity for a new local concessionaire to do business at LAX.”
Leo's Xpress has an extraordinary menu that features freshly made tacos, quesadillas, burritos, alambras and tortas. The "Al Pastor" tacos are a customer favorite. Passengers also have the option of ordering a side of Mexican rice, pinto beans or a garden salad with cilantro vinaigrette with each item. Another highlight is the all-day breakfast menu featuring breakfast burritos, breakfast tacos and huevos rancheros.
"Tacos are a traveler favorite and now we're excited to bring a truly authentic LA taqueria experience to LAX world travelers as part of our rotating food truck program," said HMSHost Vice President of Business Development Amy Dunne. "HMSHost is thrilled to partner with Leo's Xpress and Los Angeles World Airports to add even more unique local flavors to the airport and this wildly popular food truck."
"It's all in the flavor, really. Everything has been tested and measured for success. We love street food, and we love Los Angeles and that's just it. Our recipes are a product of our environment," said Leo's Xpress President Willie Rodriguez.
