Famous for Eating Tacos

23 07 2008

You never know what’s going to happen when you’re waiting for your friend to show up for dinner. A couple nights ago I was ouside Pancho Villa Taqueria on 16th Street (between Mission and Valencia) when a news crew showed up to do a story about salmonella-tainted jalapaNos. Lucky me!

By the way, my vote for best burrito has always gone to Pancho Villa. When I was there the other night, though, I had truly the BEST BURRITO EVER. I think the secret is getting it with refried beans – the regular pinto kind, not refried black beans. Yum! Oh, and mild salsa this time (no jalapeNos 😉 ).

Here’s one of my favorite photo sequences of my Uncle Ernie in Pancho Villa a few years ago.
