On Our Radar:
But Seriously. Gordo.

With the sort of saturation you find in the taqueria market these days one can afford to be picky. It was with this attitude in mind that I snubbed this little Elmwood joint (there are three such places in San Francisco) with a super basic menu and an ever-present line. Well, it turns out the line-goers weren’t wrong, and thanks to that super basic menu and highly efficient assembly line approach to cranking out orders, the line moves fast. And who would have thought that the little taqueria with the most unimpressive menu would have the best damn carnitas in the Bay Area? And yes, I am fully aware of the gravity of that statement. And as it should be with a place whose name roughly translates to “fat tacos,” the portions are hefty. In the end I guess the old adage proved true: Never judge a taqueria by its cover.
