Taco Town

Pacifica has an embarrassment of riches when it comes to taquerias. We can think of seven, but let us know if we missed any: The Green Enchilada, La Mordida, Guerrero’s, El Toro Loco, El Grano de Oro, La Playa, El Gran Amigo. Sorry, Taco Bell, love the location, but the food—not so much.

If you are feeling adventurous, head on down 280 and 92 to El Sinaloense in San Mateo (Palm Street behind the Safeway on El Camino Real). The owner Mario warmly welcomes regulars and visitors, offering a menu of tasty Sinaloa specialties. This friendly, colorful neighborhood place is decorated with photos and paintings of life back in the Old Country.

NO, TACO BELL DOES NOT QUALIFY AS A TAQUERIA...BUT IS LESS TOXIC THAN THE OTHER FAST-FOOD PLACES...

I agree with Dan. El Grano De Oro was there when I first moved to Pacifica in 1987 and has sustained me through my 25-year residence in Pacifica. I have seen their babies grow up and staff the register and takeout line. Great food and even better people.

Only if you can tell me how they make the "sauce" green and where the mystery meat comes from.

Do 7-Eleven taquitos count?

El Grano de Oro was and is an embarrassment of riches from well before any of these others came about to well into the future, as far as I can tell, but if I find myself in San Mateo at lunchtime, I'll try El Sinaloense. I am spoiled rotten, but I don't always get to eat in my own hometown.
