Thank Friday it’s Lunchtime – Taqueria 3 Hermanos, 1122 1st St, Napa, California
Here’s something a little different for Thank Friday It’s Lunchtime!
|Special Nachos with Chicken|
The YD ordered a vegetable burrito. The burritos in Taqueria 3 Hermanos were the biggest I’ve ever seen – giant rolls of spicy goodness! The vegetarian version was packed with beans, rice, sweetcorn, rice, lettuce, rice, tomatoes, rice, salsa and rice. Very tasty, but very, very filling. It’s probably the perfect lunch for a vegetarian who has been toiling in the vineyards all morning, but it was too much for my petite YD, who only managed to eat half of it. Too much rice, she said. Really?
The Nephew, our trusty driver and tour-guide for the day, had the Super Burrito with beef. This was even bigger than the YD’s veggy burrito and it had proportionately less rice in it. The Nephew was happy with it, anyway, as was the Brother-in-Law, who also ordered it.
|Another Super Burrito. All it needs is red underpants and a cape…|
My sister ordered a Chicken Chimichanga, which was a little more dainty than the giant burritos. It came with lettuce and salsa on the side, all of which went down well.
The LSH ordered the Super Burrito 49er with Beef. This burrito came with The Works – tomato sauce poured over it, melted cheese on top with salsa, lettuce, guacamole and sour cream all crammed onto the plate beside it. He managed to eat it all. He’s a growing boy, after all.

The main courses all worked out somewhere between $7/8$ per head. None of us went for starters or dessert – thank goodness, I think we would have exploded – but I reckon that $8 (€6) was amazing value. Yeah, the ambiance was very Fast Food, but the food itself was excellent.
We waddled back to the Minibus and carried on to the next vineyard. Strangely, those wines were our least favourite of the day. Hmm, perhaps the spicy food killed our sensitive wine-tasting palates. Oh well, it was worth it!
