|Arturos PUFFY TACO|
15693 Leffingwell Rd
As I get out of my car I see all of the people making their way to the order window and I have to say they looked really happy! Which in turn got me even more geeked up to order some puffy tacos. I go up to the window and the owner is there to greet me with a smile. Now I have never met the man in my life but instantly I felt like I knew him my whole life. He says "looks like you are ready for the season" for a minute I hesitated and then realized I had my Laker shirt on. I said "oh my shirt?" he says with a smile "no your license plate".

If you see this it's me
Needless to say we are off and running on the right foot and I order two tacos "Puffy" of course. I make my way over to the side and take in the sights and sounds and as I'm doing that more and more people are making their way to the order window. I decide to walk inside to the little dining area and right there in the corner is a framed James Worthy Jersey hanging on the wall. WOW! and not only that but there was a signed picture of Big Game James Worthy with the owners of Puffy Taco. I also couldn't help but notice some other autographed memorabilia hanging there as well it was awesome! I knew I was in the right place, I was "home" lol.

Inside people were sitting down loving the food I started up a conversation with one gentleman who lived in the area. I asked him how he liked the food he said he really enjoyed it. He said he moved to Pomona for a five years and recently moved back. When they finally moved back he asked his wife what she wanted to eat and they decided on In & Out Burger. He remembered Puffy Taco and threw it out there as a last minute choice and his wife's eyes lit up and she shook her head yes. He said he had been coming for years and always enjoyed it.

Soon my number was called and my tacos arrived and I was not disappointed. I have never had a deep fried flour tortilla shell and I was pleasantly surprised. Over at the counter they have salsa and fresh salsa to take your tacos to the next level if needed.
