La Cumbre Taqueria: Awful Carne Asada, Great Visuals

If you like dryness and gristle, you’ll love the carne asada at La Cumbre. If you don’t like dryness and gristle, surely you can at least agree that their furniture is more fun than the boring stuff at most of the neighborhood’s taquerias.

If that’s not enough, be sure to relish the joy to be had in La Cumbre’s collection of odd photos lining the wall. Here’s my favorite. It reads, “To Eddie, Thanks for the great BURRITOS!” and seems to be from some kind of celebrity organist.

Finally, the graffiti in the bathroom at La Cumbre is pretty nice too. Whimsical, colorful, fun. Thanks, Sad Jose!

  1. In the early 90′s it was top notch. But that was long ago… I honestly wonder how they stay in business.

    Sad jose also has or had a piece up on the construction site across the street from bi-rite.

    As for La Cumbre when I came out here visiting my cousin 10 years ago the burrito’s were mind-bending to my Midwestern tastebuds. Now not so much.

    The Chile Relleno Burrito at El Toro was my neighborhood go to.
