Outstanding grilled shrimp burrito at Rubio’s! Incredibly small, but super tasty.


El Taco Loco Shop

Outstanding al pastor tacos at El Taco Loco Shop inside Ramona Market!

Taco Bell

The Spicy Triple Double Crunchwrap at Taco Bell was outstanding!! I could use this thing as a pillow!


Tasty bowl thing with chicken at Rubio’s. I don’t remember everything that was in it, but it tasted outstanding. Very fresh and clean.

On the Border

One of my favorite spots for Taco Tuesday is On the Border! I always mix & match with an outstanding ground beef, barbacoa, and chicken.

Taco Bell

Happy New Year! These mini skillet bowl breakfast things at Taco Bell are pretty tasty!

Taco Bell

Had lunch recently at the Bell and I was so excited to finally try this new Naked Chicken Chalupa thing! Turned out better than I was expecting. Only $2.99 each and it was perfect. Needed nothing else. No cheese roll-up; no crunch wrap; no cinnamon twists; no nothing. Just one Naked Chicken Chalupa. I’m not gonna sugarcoat it, I just like saying “Naked Chicken Chalupa”. Probably more than I like saying “Chicken DoubleDilla”.

This remarkable new chalupa reminds me of the invention of the wheel. Actually it was more like a fried chicken salad turned inside out. Taco Bell created a chalupa shell made of crispy, all white meat chicken and filled it with crisp lettuce, diced maters, cheese and an amazing avocado ranch sauce.

I have to say, it was pretty greasy in the hands. Felt like taking a shower when I was done. Might have been better with a warm flour tortilla adhered to the outside with some sort of cheese substance. Overall an outstanding specialty item on the Bell menu. Unfortunately, it’s limited time only, like all their best stuff. Get in and try one before it goes away for good.

On the Border

Outstanding quesadilla appetizer at On the Border!

Players Sports Bar

Here’s some more amazing foodstuffs from Players Sports Bar in Poway! Outstanding jambalaya and an excellent order of tater skins. Surprisingly good for an unassuming Sports Bar in a Wal Mart parking lot.

Casa Reveles

One of my favorite Mexican restaurants in Ramona is Casa Reveles. Outstanding lunch specials here, although they seem to have a propensity for black olives. Not sure why, but they’re easy to pick off. Always a treat when Victor is working.
