The RonTopofIt family hit the drive-through at El Forastero Mexican Restaurant on Fair Oaks Blvd. at Walnut Ave. this afternoon for a quick bite. I had been meaning to give it a go since they took over the space previously occupied by Taco Ball back in October (a large chain being replaced by a smaller chain, go figure). Shocker, Yelp is all over the place with reviews. I went in with little research, however, and had never been to the other locations in Sacrament and Stockton (it’s been a few months, guys, time to update the website) so I was ready.
Highlight #1: Open 24 hours
Of course I’ll never utilize this feature, but it is nice to know it is there. If I was young and single, I’m sure this would be awesome after a late night of hanging out by myself watching Seinfeld reruns.
Highlight #2: Breakfast is served all day
I love me a breakfast burrito. Simple to make, but not always easy to make, especially at 2 in the afternoon when only bacon and scrambled eggs wrapped in a tortilla will do.
Highilght #3: The menu is loaded
We had to take a few minutes to review this baby. Did I mention that breakfast is served all day? The daily specials are served all day! You can’t beat that.
As for the food, we ordered a chicken quesadilla, a chicken burrito, and a, you guessed it, bacon and eggs breakfast burrito. The service was fast and the staff friendly. I am no sac-eats, so I’ll have to just tell you that the portions were large and the taste was great. Is it super-authentic? Prolly not, depends on your definition of authentic, right? Is it low-cal? No. Do I hate it when people ask themselves questions like this? Yes.
So, give it a try and let me know what you think. Don’t go out of your way though, I can’t handle the pressure.

Would be interesting to hear from sac-eats and readers on the best 24 restaurants in Sacramento.
Great idea, cogmeyer. I’d read that post!
Since there are only three of them, I don’t think it would be that great a read (and two of them are Denny’s).
