You mean specifically hardshell tacos, right? Or did you mean to say burritos?

Tacos are very much a part of traditional Mexican cuisine... In fact it's one of the commonalities of the very diverse mix of regional Mexican cooking.

For California I'd go with something pretty simple like Hass avocado stuffed with Dungeness crab, a citrus dressing and sprinkled with toasted almonds. That covers the south, north and inland valleys.
