There are a lot of good Mexican joints in San Francisco–but not many that have inspired a hip-hop album. Electric-pop and hip-hop duo The Cataracs loves Gordo Taqueria so much that they named an album after it. They’re not alone in their adoration, as Gordo Taqueria has expanded to six locations in the East Bay area. After ordering at the counter, guests watch staff move at a methodical pace as they stuff chicken into burritos and scoop flavorful carnitas into taco shells. The dining area at the Berkley location stars a vibrant mural and stools with woven seats crafted from leather and fossilized tortillas.
