EppsNet Restaurant Reviews: Don Pisto’s

Our son and his girlfriend took us to a Mexican restaurant in North Beach for Sunday brunch.

So I can see where he’s coming from when the husband asks her, “Are you sure you know what you’re ordering?” “Number 6,” she says. “I mean, do you know what a chile relleno is?” “Yes.” When the food comes, she asks the waiter, “What am I eating again?” Read more →
