El Indio Menu, Prices and Locations

El Indio was founded at the corner of India and Grape as a tortilla factory in August of 1940 by Ralph Pesqueira Sr. Fresh corn tortillas were made by hand. During WWII, customers from Consolidated, Convair and other nearby factories soon began asking for ready to eat lunch items. Ralph Sr. responded by making the “taquito,” a word he coined meaning “little taco.”
