¡Salud! National City
When the popular Barrio Logan taco shop expanded into National City in 2018, it expanded into burgerdom as well. The Taco Shop burger repeats as a daily special Friday and Saturday, and proves no less dripping with savor than its tortilla creations. For $11, including fries, you get a 5-ounce, bacon cheddar cheeseburger topped by chunky pico de gallo, sliced avocado, a mess of shredded lettuce, and my favorite touch: a generous slathering of cilantro mayo. This location doesn’t share the great craft beer selection of the original, but there’s a winning workaround to that. Just take your meal to Machete Beer House next door.
