If you’ve driven down La Brea Avenue near Olympic Boulevard over the past couple of weeks, you may have noticed a big sign for Trejo’s Tacos, featuring the face of actor Danny Trejo, that cool guy from the “Machete” movies and “From Dusk Till Dawn.”

This is Trejo’s new taco restaurant — a project from Trejo, film producer Ash Shah and Jeff Georgino. Trejo actually wanted there to be a hand wielding a machete attached to the sign, but unfortunately, that didn’t happen.

Machete-wielding sign or not, the three owners plan to have a soft opening early next week, then officially open with expanded hours and an expanded menu the week after.

“We have 10 different tacos,” said Trejo. “It’s just stuff that everybody likes.”
