About Rico's Taco Shop

Rico's Taco Shop is an old school Mexican fast-food joint in Encinitas that offers vegan options such as vegan burritos and vegan tacos. Both their black beans and refried pinto beans are vegan (no lard) and so are the tortillas and rice. The guacamole is not vegan as it contains dairy, so you'll need to substitute real avocado slices in for this. You can veganize your burrito by getting avocado, beans, rice and leaving out the cheese and sour cream, and subbing in some avocado slices (which they charge extra for). A must have is the 'Justin' burrito which is an all veggie burrito that has french fries inside for some extra crunch (again, just tell them to leave out the dairy). They have a free salsa bar where you can get lots of different types of hot sauces and pickled veggies (to-go) on the house. They do not have VEGAN clearly marked on the menu, it's just an option (off the menu). And they do not have vegan cheese or vegan meat.
