Last night, I decided to go to Ramon’s Burrito Real, on Rengstorff, for a taco salad. Imagine my surprise when I pulled up, got out of my car, walked inside, and discovered that while it was still a Mexican restaurant, it was a different Mexican restaurant. Apparently Burrito Real is no longer in business.
I believe Burrito Real was started by the same people who run La Costeña, and the burritos at both are nearly identical (and top-notch), but Burrito Real had a more varied menu, including the Real Salad which I liked and isn’t available at La Costeña.
I didn’t try the new place (“Tapatio’s”) to see if it was any good; there are plenty of Mexican restaurants I know I like already. I usually prefer the taco salad at Buenobueno, but sometimes I’m in the mood for the one at Burrito Real instead, and I will miss it.
