Maria's Taco Shop--Modesto, CA

Well, hey, I DO like Mexican food, and Maria's is the
genuine article. This is a very busy spot, near the
Freeway (Hwy 99, on Orangeburg Ave. at the Briggsmore

Great food and gennerous portions. A burrito will feed
a very hungry person or 2 moderately hungry. Located
in an old Taco Bell bldg (hooray for reuse/upgrade!)

Full menu of Tortas, Tacos, Burritos, Mariscos,
Combination plates, etc, etc. The chile verde burrito,
which I had yesterday for lunch, is divine. I also
recommend the flautas (though I think they're even
better at La Fiesta on Telegraph Ave. in Berkeley).

There are a half-dozen of these between Fresno &
Modesto, but they manage to make the local one feel
like a local--no chain feel.
