Have We Discussed Raliberto’s?

Raliberto’s has been open in Eureka since September or so.  I had never heard of them before.  They changed  my life.  I was a steady customer at Tasty Tacos, the place across from the Cutten Inn, but no more. I feel terrible guilt when I drive  past them to go to Raliberto’s,  but I’ve hardened myself.

Raliberto’s is located in the little “log cabin”  building  at the corner of 4th and K, 1039 4th Street,  catty-corner from the Carter House   That building has housed at least six restaurants that I can recall. (Remember the “Generous Armenian”?   If that wasn’t the worst name for a restaurant ever to grace our fair city, I don’t know what was.)  They have no amenities, no drive-through, (the one in Crescent City has a drive-through) and only a tiny parking lot but everyone seems to get served.  It’s the kind of place that will charge you a dollar for carrots /jalapeños  but keep their base prices lower than anyone else.  For example, carnitas burritos (BIG one ) for $5.95,  fish tacos for A DOLLAR,  Ground beef tacos also A DOLLAR.  I love this place. I make three meals out of the carnitas burrito. 

If you haven’t checked out Raliberto’s, do so soon. You wont be sorry. 



Yes, Raliberto’s is all that

All I’ve been hearing about the last few weeks is this taco place on 4th Street in the same locale that formerly housed The Generous Armenian, among other mistakes. (Isn’t that the worst name for a restaurant you ever heard? The FAT Armenian would have been better).  It was a deli for awhile, then an Asian place that was never open.  Then it was some kind of adult school.

Sanity has prevailed and food is now being served in the little log cabin at the corner of 4th and  “L” in Eureka.  The genial owner shared that he’s a little put off by the sketchy clientele  (these folks are from Crescent City, just to put things in perspective) but business is good.  I had forgotten how good real carnitas are. My carnitas burrito ($5.95) was not only delicious but  huge and I had to finish it for breakfast this morning.  Raliberto’s has raised the quality of life in Eureka. That’s the truth. 

Check them out and let us know what you think. Open 9am-10pm. Call 273 5290 for takeout.

P.S. ! went back the next day. You will too.  Check out the tamales.  (2/$5) They are sublime.
