Best Taqueria, Contra Costa CountyA killer burrito? In San Ramon?

El Balazo

If you see a need, fill it, says every MBA program. And did San Ramon ever need a good taqueria. Lo, the owners of the San Francisco-based microchain El Balazo saw that CoCo County had no good carnitas, fish tostadas, horchata, or vegetarian burritos. And so they came, and they tricked out their new digs with altars and Dia de los Muertos memorabilia. They hired cooks who actually know salsa fresca from Pace Picante, and who can fry corn chips until they’re thick and crispy. And it was good. Very, very good. San Francisco-style burritos with San Francisco-quality ingredients make San Ramon very happy. And now, Danville, Lafayette, and Pleasanton too.
