Stop Ordering Taco Bell From Postmates, San Francisco

A list landed in my inbox today from Postmates, the app that lets you hire your fellow citizens to pick up takeout for you at pretty much every restaurant in the city. The list was of the  top places that San Franciscans ordered delivery from in 2014.

It's a fine list, as these things go, heavy on the Mexican food as to be expected in the city. I was pleased to see how many people are ordering Bob's Donuts for delivery. There is one item on the list that is inexcusable, however. Why the hell is Taco Bell on there?

Ordering Taco Bell in San Francisco is not only an affront to your digestive system, but also to the entire Bay Area. (Chipotle is embarrassing as well, but at least it's better-quality.) The next time you're stoned and/or drunk, may we point you toward La Taqueria, El Farolito, Cancun, Vallarta, or another of the other dozen fine taquerias that is one of our city's many great assets?

Postmates is offering $4.99 delivery from all the top restaurants tomorrow through the weekend, so if you really, really, really can't live without a Quesarito, you can at least get it for a discount. (Shame on you.) 

Here's the full thing:

Papalote Mexican Grill
The Plant Cafe
Out the Door
The Little Chihuahua on Divisadero
Pacific Catch
Taco Bell
Miller's East Coast Delicatessen
Bob's Donut & Pastry Shop
Osha Thai Restaurant
Green Chile Kitchen
Pancho Villa

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
