Refried beans made with meaty lard. Top-notch pico de gallo and a big salsa bar. Crunchy, thick homemade corn chips. Lime-dressed cabbage slaw with your entrées. And vegetarian burritos named after Grateful Dead members. These are the reasons we love Taquería El Balazo, which has all but perfected the big rice-and-bean-filled San Francisco-style burrito. Bob and Jerry might have felt at home here, too, surrounded by murals and colorful shrines.
