Tacko

 Tacko – Marina

Tacko is both flavorful and reasonably priced (for the Marina). They’ve got your standard fare like Carne Asada tacos, quesadillas, an assortment of beers. Tacko really stands out for their California burritos in my opinion. Not sure what a Califrornia burrito is? Well, it means they add french fries to your burrito! It’s amazing, but the only downside is that you get very full, very quickly. Be sure to devour the behemoth with a healthy dousing of their freshly made green sauce (mostly cilantro and lime).

 

On this particular trip, I had some chips and salsa to share with friends. They were good, but the chips are always on the saltier side. Be sure to eat this order quickly, as it does get soggy.

 

I almost forgot to mention, the fish tacos are so good that by the time you finish, you’ll consider ordering two more. Just the right amount of cilantro, paired with guacamole, greens, and fresh fish to top it all off. The food is so good, you might not notice this restaurant is a little slice of Nantucket, Massachusetts. There’s a plethora of artwork and knick-knacks adorning the walls that give the location a very sea-worthy feel. Grab a Nantucket Nectar and hit up Tacko before the crowds arrive around 6PM!

Bite

Bite

Bite – Nob Hill

Tired of Ike’s Sandwiches? Okay, so maybe you aren’t (What kind of San Franciscan tires of Ike’s?). Maybe you’re too far from a noteworthy sandwich shop or maybe you just want to try something new. Bite may be a small storefront, but it packs a lot of amazing options.

Bite isn’t just a sandwich shop. It doubles as a deli. If ordering varieties of meat and cheeses by the pound is your thing, they’ve got a decent selection at this pint-sized deli. Bite is mainly known for their rotisserie chicken. They’ve usually got 6 of the birds rotating right next to the cash register. There’s a reason for this! The rotisserie chicken is easily their best meat. Not only can you buy a whole chicken for dinner, but you can also get it on your sandwich!

To date, I’ve tried the Day After Thanksgiving, Moshe Moshe, Firecracker, Gouda Good, Kookooroo, My Ex, Chickenapolis, and Porky’s Revenge. They’re all good. This place is definitely on par with Ikes, but the sandwiches with the rotisserie chicken standout from the crowd. If you only have one chance to visit Bite, I’d suggest you order the Kookooroo, My Ex, or Gouda Good. They’re my go-to sandwiches when I’m not trying to cross every sandwich on the menu off my list.

In addition to their deli, sandwiches, and drinks, Bite offers wraps and salads. I’ve only tried one salad, but it really wasn’t anything to write home about. Whatever you decide upon, there’s a good amount of seating right outside the front door. Bite will also give you plenty of napkins AND a free lollypop (They just can’t escape the comparisons to Ike’s!). Check them out if you’re ever around NobHill. Never stop eating!
