“Best Burritos and Tacos in Marin”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 September 2013

I worked in the eastern LA suburbs and Orange County for many years, and loved to find mom and pop Mexican spots serving good home style food. Picante is one of those. Located at the edge of San Rafael's Canal District, it draws a diverse crowd from both the immediate community and throughout Central Marin--most of whom are regulars. I recommend anything made with carnitas, accompanied by the tomatillo hot sauce. Grilled chicken and shrimp are quite good as well. Good selection of Mexican beer on tap and in bottles.
