Hot Headed - Check it and see...

Friday was the day for H - for lunch it was Hot Head Burritos and for dinner it was Hahana Beach

Hot Head occupies the spot formerly held by Fatburger on Madison in Oakley. I was kinda sad to see the Fat go - I thought the burgers were good.

It's very Chipotle-ish - you can get tacos, burritos, etc... but you can also get nachos. The meats don't look or smell as delicious as Chipotle. The rice they put in the bowl has no cilantro. The beans look sad. Also - they don't have extra veggies other than the pepper/onion. That's my one complaint about Chipotle - I like Moe's for the mushrooms and other veggies that they have!

They have similar toppings with a couple of additions. They also are known for their sauce options - all the way from mild to hot head.

Larry got the steak tacos - I had a bite at the end. The shell was stale and the meat was dry. Meh.

I got the "Lil Bowl" with shredded pork. The pork was good. The guac was meh. I liked being able to get taco sauce on it.

And it was Good Friday and we saw these folks walking up and down Madison. Only in the 'Nati. Good for them - that takes some cahones. It's one thing to wear a cross on your neck - it's another to carry it down a major roadway in broad daylight!

Why Should You Go? Well if you couldn't tell by my lackluster descriptions - I wasn't too excited. There is absolutely no reason for me to go back here. It wasn't bad - it just wasn't Chipotle.
