California Tacos - Tampa

If you are looking for California style tacos and burritos in the Tampa area, head north to California Tacos, located on Bearss (and Skipper Rd.), just east of I-275. They've been written up elsewhere and this place is no longer a secret, but after a few visits I just had to write about the great food. The fish tacos are excellent as are the other varieties, but the burrito I had last week for lunch was probably the best I have had in Tampa - crunchy cabbage, a little beans and rice, guac, cheese, sour cream and the best damn carne asada I have had in a while. Prices are pretty cheap as well; you can get a REALLY big meal for around $6 or $7, tops.

It's a to-go taco stand and can get pretty packed, so don't expect super fast food. Everything is cooked to order, so it will take you a few minutes at least. I believe they are closed on Mondays. The guy who owns the place is super nice and really into his food and the quality. The only thing that would make it great is if there were a dine in area. But since I live close enough, I can head home and have a great lunch with a couple of cold Mexican beers.

Get there!
