Desk Lunch Less Exciting, Still Delicious
In about 10 minutes, I can get down the street to El Zorro, order a super steak burrito (like the one pictured at right) and be back to work. And that's all the time I need.
Though staring at my phone and keyboard while I dine is not the most picturesque of settings, El Zorro's super burritos still provide a great lunch that won't let you down. There's nothing particularly remarkable about them, nor are they especially a bargain, but the burritos at El Zorro are solid and consistent, and they taste very good. Even at my desk, lunch is usually the highlight of my day.
Welcome to El Zorro
Taqueria El Zorro probably doesn't get the recognition it deserves because it's situated in San Francisco's North Beach neighborhood (Map), which is better known for overpriced, greasy, unimaginative, tourist-trap Italian restaurants masquerading as authentic, high-end Italian cuisine, but in actuality are probably much closer in quality to Olive Garden.
I say next time you're in North Beach, skip the spaghetti and calamari and get yourself a burrito from El Zorro. They don't have the outdoor seating that many of the Italian places have, but you can always get it to-go and walk up Columbus a few blocks to Washington Square for some nice outdoor dining.
