East Los Santos is a large district in the east of Los Santos, and the district is controlled by the Ballas gang. East Los Santos has, prior to early 1992, had areas controlled by the Los Santos Vagos and the Grove Street Families. There are two known residents of East Los Santos: Freddy and Melvin "Big Smoke" Harris, who moves to East Los Santos from Idlewood.

Events of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

East Los Santos, by early 1992, is a strong hold for the Ballas gang, who use the area as a base to launch attacks on Grove Street Family gang members in Ganton. Conflict between the Ballas and Los Santos Vagos gangs does not occur in East Los Santos, due to the two gangs co-operating with each. Carl Johnson and Denise Robinson meet in East Los Santos during the mission Burning Desire. Carl had set on fire some homes owned by the Los Santos Vagos, however Carl rescued Denise from the fire after hearing her cries for help.

East Los Santos is also the main setting for the final mission of GTA: San Andreas: End of the Line. During this mission, Carl Johnson fights his way past Ballas, Los Santos Vagos and Russian Mafia gang members in order to reach Big Smoke, who he then kills. Frank Tenpenny then sets Smoke's Crack Palace on fire, leaving Carl having to fight his way back out of the building whilst also combating the flames. After escaping the building, which suffers a series of explosions as Carl escapes, Carl and Sweet Johnson chase Tenpenny through East Los Santos and other districts.
