Anything close in quality to the Mission that doesn't require traveling over a bridge?

    Search for posts about taquerias in the Fruitvale area. I think there's even a branch of El Farolito around there...

        Webster, actually, just south of 17th in downtown.

        I go there when I want a.. different sort of burrito. But it's not very traditional. Something about the cheese and beans they use is just bizarre. (I do like one now and then, maybe once a year, and then the one on 14th near Jackson is where I go, because they don't charge $.25 for a second teensy container of hot sauce)

        La Calaca Loca (Temescal area, NW section) was pretty good, but I'm guessing Fruitvale can beat most areas easily.

        I like the burritos at Otaez taqueria, it's to the left of the restaurant. Grilled chicken is my favorite meat there.

          I'd love to hear the answer too. I still miss Talk of the Town.

            Talk of the Town. Yeah. It was a black day when TOTT closed. I loved their tacos, quesadillas, burritos - all of it. I used to eat there a couple of times a week.
