EppsNet Restaurant Reviews: Don Pisto’s

11 Apr 2016 /

Our son and his girlfriend took us to a Mexican restaurant in North Beach for Sunday brunch. Later, at the airport, when I couldn’t remember the name of the place, I googled “san francisco mexican brunch” and it came back as the first result.

Don Pistos

Don Pisto’s is (according to Google) synonymous with Mexican brunch in SF. I can recommend the huevos rancheros, breakfast burrito and the pork tamale and eggs.

I also had a margarita. Maybe because I ordered it at the bar and it was poured right in front of me, but there was mucho tequila in the margarita. I don’t always drink margaritas, but when I do, I often order a second one. That option was not even on the table on this occasion.

See You in Hell

[See You in Hell is a feature by our guest blogger, Satan — PE]

Greetings from the underworld!

Friends have asked my opinion of the new Diablo hot sauce from Taco Bell . . .

  1. I love the name!
  2. You call that hot?!

See you in Hell . . .


My Boy Turns 18 Today

He had a bunch of friends over last night playing poker. After midnight — actually closer to 1 a.m. — he informed me that he was making his first decision as an adult.

“We’re going out for burritos,” he said.

Chile Rellenos

The woman at the next table says to the waiter, “I’ll have the number 6 combo with the chile . . .”

She’s struggling with the next word, so the waiter says, “Relleno.”

“Right,” she says.

The waiter asks if she wants the regular chile or the spicy chile.

“Spicy,” she says.

I love Mexican food but chile rellenos are a little bit different. I’m not crazy about them. 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?”


When the food comes, she asks the waiter, “What am I eating again?”
