Loree's Little Shack
4835 Pacific Street
Sometimes my GPS fails me. I search for the closest taqueria only to find it's closed that day, out of business, etc. That's what happened twice
before I came across Loree's.
I parked out back in the gravel lot and chuckled at the permanent "Free Beer Tomorrow" sign as I walked in.
Loree's is half dive bar, half old-school restaurant with truck-stop style comfort food. A couple of locals were at the bar, already hammered at 9:15 in the morning. One guy said he "only had to win two more tournaments to become a millionaire in the World Series of Poker". Sheer entertainment.
The food took longer than expected even though there was only a family of four and a couple who ordered before me. But, I passed the time checking out the large collection of kitschy items hanging all over the walls and ceilings surrounding me.
To satisfy my ever-present tortilla craving, I ordered the 2 Taco Scramble. Two grilled tortillas were filled with fluffy scrambled eggs, melting cheese, crisp lettuce and juicy tomato, dusted with parmesan, and accompanied by a side of piping-hot home fries. Wow! I would return just for that damn breakfast.
