New El Grullense Taqueria to Sprout Up near Target

Juan Gamez, who owns three El Grullense taquerias in Redwood City and Palo Alto as well as Bay Burger, will open a new El Grullense location in town soon, near the Target shopping center.


If you love a good taco, you're in luck - Redwood City will soon be home to another location of the popular local taqueria chain El Grullense, set to open soon near the on El Camino.

Juan Gamez, who owns two other locations in Redwood City, one El Grullense in Palo Alto, and on Woodside Road, says business has been good, so it's time to expand even further.

"I love [doing business in Redwood City]," Gamez said. "I couldn't think of a better place. We've done really well here."

Though, of course, people come to El Grullense for the tacos, he says the chain is equally famous for its signature salsa.

"Our salsa is homemade," he said. "We have green salsa that is mild and red salsa that is hot. So we are really known by our salsa, for its quality."

Just like El Grullense's salsa, Gamez said his other business, Bay Burger, is knows for its freshness and quality, as well.

"We get deliveries every day, so we get fresh meat every day," he said. "So they're really gourmet burgers."

Fans of Gamez' El Grullense have plenty of good things to say on Yelp.com, like Jeff V. of Redwood City who wrote, "Good food, pretty fast when they're not crowded, and a pretty wide range of items to choose from."

Steph C. wrote, "The menu is huge to the point of overwhelming, but everything I've tried so far has been good. I think my favorite is still the carnitas and goat tacos and their fruit shakes - particularly strawberry - so that's my regular order."

Gamez said the new El Grullense will open in about three weeks at 2525 El Camino Real.

Sorry, I've tried to like this place (both the one on Woodside Rd. and the one near Target) but I just can't. They just can't seem to get the orders right. And the salsa is not that good. When you have so many Mexican taquerias to choose from in the area, why waste my money and time on this place.
