HMS Host brings Leo’s Xpress Food Truck to Terminal 4 at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX)

The truck is the newest local food concept by global restaurateur HMSHost and its Airport Concessions Disadvantaged Business Enterprise partner, Havana House.

“At LAX, we are committed to showcasing the flavors, businesses and cultures of Los Angeles, and I can’t think of a better way to do that than putting an incredibly popular local taco truck in one of our terminals,” said Jeffrey Utterback, deputy executive director of commercial development, LAWA.

The Leo’s Xpress menu features freshly made tacos, quesadillas, burritos, alambres and tortas. Passengers also have the option of ordering a side of Mexican rice, pinto beans or a garden salad with cilantro vinaigrette with each item. Another highlight is the all-day breakfast menu featuring breakfast burritos, breakfast tacos and huevos rancheros.

“Tacos are a traveler favorite and now we’re excited to bring a truly authentic LA taqueria experience to LAX world travelers as part of our rotating food truck program,” said HMSHost vice president of business development Amy Dunne. “HMSHost is thrilled to partner with Leo’s Xpress and Los Angeles World Airports to add even more unique local flavors to the airport and this wildly popular food truck.”

Open from 5:30am to 12:00am, Leo’s Xpress is located in HMSHost’s stationary food truck in the Terminal 4 food hall on the Upper/Departures Level post-security.
