This Is The East Los Angeles Taco Joint Where Cardi B And Bruno Mars Filmed ‘Please Me’
From the inside, the place is filled with Mexico’s finest ingredients: pork, avocado, tortillas, shredded lettuce, and rabanos. We’re not describing your mom’s house (although we’re sure she has those things too), but rather an iconic local restaurant that is now blowing up because of a music video. It’s not just any music video. Tacos Mexico was the filming location for the latest collab with Cardi B and Bruno Mars called “Please Me.”
Cardi B and Bruno Mars filmed their latest collaboration video inside Tacos Mexico in East Los Angeles.
Sometimes the coziest place for a couple can be inside of a taco joint. Just check out the chemistry between those two. The singers were giving us so much life and lighting up the iconic taco joint at the same time. After the success of “Finesse,” it isn’t a total surprise that the two could light up the screen while grinding in a taco restaurant.
On Instagram, Tacos Mexico said they were extremely proud to be part of this amazing project.
“Tacos Mexico is very proud of being part of ‘Cardi B & Bruno Mars” official music video (Please Me) that is a total Hit! On the very first day of release with over 10,000,000 views and coming…thank you.”
And they’re not exaggerating on those numbers. Total views are now more than 20 million and counting.
Tacos Mexico isn’t just a random Mexican restaurant but an eatery that has deep L.A. roots.
According to their website, Tacos Mexico was founded by
Antonio Moreno. “In addition to expanding his menu, Mr. Moreno also began opening additional restaurants throughout southern California including Los Angeles, Orange, San Bernardino and Riverside Counties and expanding out of State to Nevada and Arizona. By 2009, the number of Tacos Mexico restaurants had grown to almost 40 locations in three states, all while staying true to its roots and using only the freshest ingredients.”
Moreno passed away in 2009. We’re certain he would have loved this video.
If you want to visit the spot of this video, here’s where you need to go.
Head on down to 5120 E Olympic Blvd. in Los Angeles and you can eat and vibe in the same spot. Good for you, the restaurant is open 24 hours so there is no time where you won’t be welcomed in for some great food and reminiscing about the first time you saw “Please Me.”
Let’s also take a moment to give Cardi B and Bruno Mars some props for highlighting a local, Latino business.
Tacos Mexico might have locations in two other states but the home of the restaurant is in downtown Los Angeles. We can only assume that the video will help to push the restaurant, which is already a neighborhood staple, into a go-to destination for fans and taco lovers alike.

Who wants to meet up for a fun time with delicious tacos? Clearly they are going to be playing “Please Me” on repeat for a while.
