By Jason Green | [email protected] | Bay Area News Group PUBLISHED: June 26, 2018 at 11:12 pm | UPDATED: June 26, 2018 at 11:15 pm OAKLAND — Yet another video of people behaving poorly in the Bay Area is making the rounds on social media. This time, it’s of a man calling the police on a fellow BART rider for eating on the train. And while he is no Permit Patty, BBQ Becky or Jogger Joe, he is the latest to pay the viral price for getting into another person’s business. Uploaded to Reddit on Sunday, the video depicts a man dressed in a Hawaiian shirt berating another man for flouting BART’s rule against eating and drinking on the train. “You can’t wait?” the man in the Hawaiian shirt asks, his tone incredulous “The sign says no eating and drinking,” he continues. “You don’t get it. You must be stupid. I’ve seen people like you on TV.” The man in the Hawaiian shirt then gets up, walks to an … [Read more...] about BART rider calls cops on fellow passenger for eating burrito

Located smack in the center of EXPO Market, Breezy Burrito Co. is a build-your-own burrito and taco experience that’s retrofitted its time-honored familial Mexican recipes to the popular quick-serve business model of today. A refreshing blend of familiar classics and Instagrammable mash-ups like its own choco taco, everything on the menu shares the common ground of being made fresh in-house with local ingredients and is available at the drop of a dime for the on-the-go diner. The quick-serve model here is slightly more structured than that of say, Chipotle, in the sense that the menu items, though completely customizable, begin as prescribed combinations that serve as tried and true suggested “starting points” for you to either leave be or make your own. For another go-around I’d consider making some minor tweaks to my preference, but for this first meal, I left everything up to Breezy. Regretfully gorging yourself on chips and salsa is practically a … [Read more...] about A refreshing take on Mexican-American at Breezy Burrito Co.
A 20-year-old driver was distracted by a burrito and crashed into plants on the side of the road, Oregon police said. (Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office) Did this driver need to "taco" break?

0 View Comments Eighteen years ago, Jack Martinez set up a green-chile roasting stand at 2524 Federal Boulevard. Sales of his roasted chiles, corn and street eats were so good that he eventually took over the building next to the parking lot where he operated, drawing homesick New Mexico natives and Jefferson Park neighbors to his restaurant, Jack-n-Grill. Popularity peaked in the late 2000s, whenAdam Richman, host of Man v Food , attempted to eat the cantina's infamous seven-pound breakfast burrito for a nationwide audience (he lost that particular encounter) in 2009. Martinez opened a second Jack-n-Grill in Littleton that same year and then made it a trio in 2010 with an outpost at 9310 Sheridan Boulevard. But last year, Martinez put his flagship restaurant up for sale (as part of a divorce settlement), noting that the restaurant would close as soon as a buyer could be found. That time has come; Jack-n-Grill is now closed and the building is under contract. … [Read more...] about Home of Denver 7-pound breakfast burrito shutters remaining restaurants
