El Tarasco Salsa

Classic Manhattan Beach 10-counter seat diner style Mexican Eatery since 1965.  Most notable for their plentiful salsa fresca, El Turasco serves straight forward no fluff vegetarian friendly classics, although most of the menu is meat.  More of a wet burrito spot, and that’s what they do best, but they will wrap your burrito in foil to oblige.  Not re-inventing the wheel, but good guacamole, soupy pinto beans, usually crowded, BYOB, open late night.  Jack Kerouac would have loved this place.
