The Location: Baja Burrito, Elk Grove
The Taco: Carne Asada soft taco
The Price: $1.79 each
The Verdict: A simple taco for a simple price. This taco features choice of meat, with onion/cilantro mix and guacamole. While there was plenty of carne and it was tasty enough it didn't truly wow me. Just a little extra seasoning or flavor to the meat would have gone a long way. Liberal application of one of the several fresh salsa choices (all excellent) did the trick for me. The onion and cilantro mix was well proportioned but the guacamole almost went unnoticed underneath. For the price though, I don't exactly expect half an avocado on there so this is about as expected. During happy hours when the price drops by $0.50 these would be an even better value for money. Overall, a good quick bite at a good price that just misses the mark of being excellent.
The Rating: ★★★ ½ (out of 5)
