Just had a fantastic lunch at Taco Grill right by the Fruitvale BART station. I live in the neighborhood and have always been somewhat disappointed by the Mexican restaurants - I've tried the combo plates and the monster who fried fish and frankly I'm a bit bored. Until today.
We had the chicken posole and it was the best I've ever had AND it was made with Rocky free range chicken. The broth was just slightly spicy and really well-flavored and came with tons of sides/condiments to put in. The taco was made with Niman ranch pork and used one of their delicious homemade tortillas. Also tried the relleno and enjoyed that too. Even the tamarindo was stellar.
The woman who took our orders came to check and see if we liked the food and she really seemed happy that we were pleased with the meal. Can't wait to return.
