Spectacular Spicy Chicken at Chino’s Taqueria

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

Chino’s and I have a relationship that most just won’t understand. You see when I was a simple skater-kid from Marin county Chino’s introduced me to my first real burrito sending me on a wonderful tortilla wrapped odyssey.  Almost a decade later I find myself living just a short walk from the birth of my burrito affliction and I couldn’t be happier.  Nestled in the Outer Richmond I always seems to stop in when leaving a concert at Golden Gate Park or finishing up a round of disc golf.

As my taste’s have matured and my horizon’s have broadened it is now clear to me that Chino’s is not everyone’s cup of tea. So what if supreme cleanliness isn’t a primary concern, the food is delicious and presented at broke-ass friendly prices.  My personal jam at Chino’s is the spicy chicken burrito.  It’s not too often that you can track down anything more than just plain old grilled chicken to throw in your burrito so the spicy bird at Chino’s is quite the delight.  The Outer Richmond is not privy to an overwhelming array of quality burrito joints so those of that live here are lucky to have Chino’s as an option.
