True SoCal Rolled Tacos in Bay Area?

I've been searching for true Southern California rolled tacos up here ever since I moved to SF in 1994. Before I continue, I need to define "rolled tacos," because the NorCal equivalents, like flautas, are *not* rolled tacos. A proper rolled taco is:

- made of a tightly-rolled corn tortilla
- stuffed with shredded chicken or beef
- deep-fried
- covered in guacamole, grated cheddar and cotija cheese

I've attached a picture to make it crystal clear.

I'm aware of a place in Fairfield called Adalberto's, which appears to have the goods, at least based on the look of their menu, but I'm hoping for something closer to SF.

In case you can't tell, I really like rolled tacos. When I step off the plane while visiting my mother in San Diego, the first place I drive my rental car is to Hilberto's for 3 rolled tacos, not home.

End a 15 year quest and point me to local rolled tacos...
