Chavez is a local grocery store that specializes in Mexican related food items but carries everything you need for quick shopping. The butcher displays a beautiful array of all sorts of meats including those not always found in a regular market. Tripe, tongue, etc. they also sell the best homemade guacamole, salsas, premartinated fajita meats as well as homemade chips and tortillas. They have excellent produce but do not carry everything you find at a larger grocery store. They have a great beer and soda selection. And the in-store taqueria is amazing!!!

Between the shopping market options for home cooking with Hispanic inspired elements and the Taqueria that serves amazing food, we love this little gem in RWC!

Chavez Supermarket in Redwood City, CA is just what the name says, a full service supermarket, that caters to a primary Latino (but evolving) neighborhood. What makes it special is its takeout Taqueria, the best in town. I can't say that as a local since I am from Minnesota but visit family in the area here often and this is a regular stop.

The burritos are sized from Junior (for the kiddies) to the Super size (the one you want). It comes with a choice of broiled beef or chicked (sorry for the Americanization, gringo), braised pork or spiced goat, beef tongue or, for the faint of heart, fish. It comes with cheese, beans, rice, sauce (hot to taste), tomatoes, etc, as you want.

The menu is quite large in options and portion sizes with many side dishes available. Since airport food is so expensive and not very good, before leaving the Bay Area I always order a Super Burrito from Chavez, have them double wrap it and eat it for dinner on my flight home, making everyone around me jealous.

Yes, there are other taquerias in the area but you can't go wrong at Chavez Supermarket or their smaller (and I think older) sister location, not far away.
