Los Primos

Excellent carne asada quesadilla at Los Primos in 4S Ranch!


May 8, 2020 – Outstanding ‘rona takeout from Rubio’s! I ordered one of my faves, the “Burrito Especial” with grilled chicken. Made with fresh guacamole, citrus rice, black beans (omitted), roasted chipotle salsa, salsa fresca and chipotle sauce. Served with a side of tortilla chips, $8.79. I really appreciate how the burrito bottom doesn’t blow out. They are very well constructed. I was able to eat the whole thing without getting any on my shirt.

Mi Ranchito Taco Shop

I don’t usually order burritos at Mi Ranchito but this chicken asada burrito was excellent! ‘Rona snacks drive thru on April 23, 2020. I’ve often said the best take out is sub sammichs, burritos and Asian food.

Los Amigos

April 15, 2020 – Los Amigos in SDCE for takeout ‘rona snacks today. There’s a lot I don’t like from this taco shop but their burritos and tacos have been consistently good. Had an excellent carne asada burrito with absolutely no oral extractions. Purists may scoff, but I really like the addition of shredded lettuce and that green mayonnaisey guacamole.

Mi Ranchito Taco Shop

April 3, 2020 – Today’s ‘rona snacks from Mi Ranchito! I really appreciate them keeping their drive-thru open. Had another great parking lot picnic today. Their flautas are among the best in town.

Los Primos

Tasty “Grilled Steak Bowl” from Los Primos taco shop in 4S Ranch.

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.

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.

Miguel’s Cocina

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