Pinto Thai

March 26, 2020 – Asian food makes THE best takeout, that I can tell you! Pinto Thai for the win. Outstanding Thai Fried Rice with beef. I’m so happy they’re hanging in there. You could tell they were most appreciative for the business. Check them out for some great Thai food to-go.

Nuevo Grill & Cantina

March 25, 2020 – Nuevo Girl for ‘rona take-out! We ordered what I consider to be the best enchiladas in Ramona and an outstanding steak quesadilla. Even got a beer and margarita to go plus a serving of their award winning chips & salsa. The best part was, during the 15 minute drive home our car smelled more and more like delicious Nuevo Girl Mexican food! How I wish that could be bottled as an air freshener. I’m not gonna sugarcoat it though. When it comes to good Mexican food, especially enchiladas, there is no replacement for dining in. There’s few things that hold up well for takeout, this was not one of them.

El Taco Loco Shop

March 20, 2020 – I haven’t seen them published on any of the lists circulating but I’m pleased to report that El Taco Loco Shop is open for take-out! Had an outstanding carne asada quesadilla. Ramona Market had paper towels and napkins in stock, but no toilet paper. That’s ok though, I’ve been eating a lot of cheese lately. I’ll be working from home for the foreseeable future so I’m looking forward to trying many of the take-out options available during this ‘rona pandemic. Will be doing what I can to help stimulate our local and precious food economy.

Jersey Mike’s

Outstanding “sub in a tub” at Jersey Mike’s! It’s basically any of your favorite sammich choices in the form of a salad, with no bread. I think it’s best with their delicious #13 which is what I got here. The only problem was they didn’t slice all the way through the meat roll-up thing so it all kind of stuck together at the bottom. Recommend eating with a knife. And let’s face it, I just love saying “sub in a tub”!

Borrelli’s Pizza & Pasta

March 16, 2020 – my last indoor dining experience before the big ‘rona shutdown here in California. In upcoming posts you’ll see how I fare with a myriad of takeout options. Pizza by the slice is always hit or miss wherever you go. At Borrelli’s in Rancho Bernardo it’s always a home run! I’ve ordered slices all over and this place does it the best.

Hacienda Casa Blanca

One of the finest, most exciting dishes I’ve enjoyed at Hacienda Casa Blanca in El Cajon – “Tres Enchiladas”! It consists of three of their most popular enchiladas. One cheese enchilada in red space, one enchilada a la crema filled with shredded chicken, and one enchilada Suiza covered in a tomatillo sauce and filled with chicken.

Charm Thai Kitchen

Outstanding Garlic Crab Fried Rice at Charm Thai Kitchen in Rancho Bernardo!

Miguel’s Cocina

Excellent Enchiladas Rancheras at Miguel’s in 4S Ranch!

Chipotle Mexican Grill

Outstanding burrito bowl thing (with no beans of course) at Chipotle. My favorite protein option is definitely their delicious barbacoa.

Nuevo Grill & Cantina

Excellent carne asada quesadilla appetizer at Nuevo Girl in Ramona! The special surprise here are the green chiles they put inside.
