Not far from the coliseum
A couple of barbacoa tacos from Tacos del Barrio in the Mission, SF which they have on weekends. Very good with tender juicy lamb.
Those look fantastic!
I’ve been to El Paisa, really liked it. Great place to stop before or after a OAK airport run. Parking lot is enclosed, seems secure, and you can watch your car from some spots.
Has anyone tried Tacos El Ultimo Baile? I went three different times and they were closed. They have the most erratic hours and their posted open times never seemed to jibe with then they are actually open.
They aren’t going to make anyone’s best of lists but you can do a lot worse. This was a catered work event.
I’ve been watching and enjoying a YouTube series called Did You Eat Yet? about food in Oakland including tacos. The latest one, Oakland Taco Tour Part 4, features Las Parrillas Locas, among others. Warning: these videos will make you very hungry!
We often get Tacolicious for catered work events. As you said, it’s pretty good for what it is.
Wash down lengua and birria tacos with grapefruit paloma:
Lengua super taco is our usual here. Sometimes fish (or both). No cocktails, cerveza only. Unlimited chips and salsas. The proprietress is a sharp cookie. You know it’s the real deal, because at mid-day there usually are a lot of work pickups and smart hard working guys in neon orange vests to be seen.
