The baleada at Tacos - To Go

Owner and chef Tom Golen took over the small space on Bee Ridge Road that used to house San Diego Tacos to Go (and before that, the disappointing California Tacos to Go) and launched Tacos - To Go in mid-2017. As its name indicates, Tacos - To Go is taco-obsessive, with Latin American specialties like burritos ($7.49), baleadas ($5.89), tortas ($8.99) and empanadas ($3.99) to round out the selection. The eatery is doing bang-up takeout business. Escapees from nearby offices enter and depart with bulging packages of foodstuffs, while men and women scroll through their Facebook feeds to kill time as they await nourishment.
