Post climb burritos !

Postby rhyang » Mon Oct 18, 2010 9:06 pm

This season I've been checking out the taquerias after climbing. Some places that I've enjoyed in Cali are -

  • Bishop -- Taqueria Los Palmas, nice after the Palisades for example
  • Lee Vining -- Mono Mart, not really a taqueria, but they do have reasonably-priced "Monoritos" in case you are not up for $$$ fish tacos at the Whoa Nelli Deli :D Great on ice climbing trips.
  • Madera -- Taqueria Maranatha, spicy hot burritos after climbing at Tollhouse Rock. Monoritos wish they were this good 8)
  • Oakdale -- Taqueria El Agave, great after the Valley or Tuolumne

What are your fave post-climbing burrito places ?
Taaaake !

It's been a while, but I remember a gas station on the east side of the road in Big Pine. (Insert puns about "gas station.")

Ugh! I don't know if that llama is any better!

+1 to Rob's Oakdale recommendation.

Going to commit a SP felony here and diverge from the OP.

Post climb nothing better for me than a milkshake at Mono Cone. Love the blackberry one myself. I owe The Chief one for recommending the place to me.

Shouldn't you be on a diet?


Why?

Still doing the local 10-15 mile hikes, 3X's a week 5 mile runs and maintaining a solid 160 at 9%BF.

Hell, I scampered over 7 miles of Rush Creek yesterday hunting Wild Brownies in the rain/sleet.

My two favorite places on the Eastside. A chicken burrito from Mono Mart is good for a whole day of ice in LV... pre pipe fixing. :x

And the water they use to make that Coke comes from.... Image

No wonder you find it to be delicious.

Yes, I have. Saw more than a few people in front of one..thought of trying it, but Jack's seemed like a safer choice....did you try their food?


The Roach coaches have more strict regulations, and are inspected more frequently, than restaurants. They are a safer bet, anyday (and usually better tacos/burritos). We have them everywhere here. Plus, you get to watch them make your food, without having to wonder what the kitchen looks like :wink:
