KCRW's Saul Gonzalez visits with Diana Guerrero Robertson, owner of Cielito Lindo on Olvera Street. Her family has owned the taquito stand since 1934 and has been serving up their famous taquitos with tomatillo-avocado salsa ever since.

In his book Taco USA, Gustavo Arellano describes Cielito Lindo as the precursor to tacos and the original street food in Los Angeles.
