El Caballo Wraps

Map1108 Lincoln Ave.
Alameda, CA
(510) 521-6257


Don't let the Americanized nomenclature in the name mislead you: Those aren't subtle, trendy nouveau wraps Rudy Granados and his friendly staff roll up for you (on your choice of tortilla); they're big, hefty burritos filled with rice, beans (black, pinto or refried), sweet corn (nice touch!), lively salsa fresca and almost any centerpiece ingredient you'd like. We can swear by the luscious carnitas (braised pulled pork) and grilled chicken, and we suspect the barbecue pork, shredded chicken, chile verde, carne asada, shrimp and snapper hold their own. This small, cheery West Side gem (14 seats in the bright orange interior, a few tables on the sidewalk) offers a huge menu of salads, two or three soups, tamales, enchiladas, chile rellenos, quesadillas and tortas, plus breakfast burritos and bargain "street tacos" just like you'd get from a truck on the corner. If the chicken flautas are available, snap up an order - green sauce is addictive. Breakfast, lunch and dinner Mon.–Sat. Breakfast and lunch Sun.
