I checked out a new taco place in Walnut Creek recently: Limon! It’s located just down the street from where Cost Plus World Market used to be located. With no shortage of Hispanic food in our town, I wanted to see how it stood up to the competition.
I thought the food there – tacos especially – was just…okay. They serve tacos, burritos, quesadillas, and a bunch of other Mexican food favorites. Limon operates a food truck in Fremont, as well as two other locations (Fremont and Martinez).
As mentioned, I thought the tacos were decent. I’m not sure they impressed me enough to go back, especially with so many good tacos in the Bay Area. I’m still a fan of Las Panchos, which has been an East Bay staple for several years now. Limon in Walnut Creek is one of three locations – the original being in San Francisco.
Have you visited Limon? What did you think about it?
NOTE: Correction – we originally confused Limon with a different restaurant of a similar name that serves Peruvian food. We regret the error!
I recently tried one of the new restaurants in Walnut Creek, Limon, and it did not disappoint! It’s situated on Locust St., next to Vitality Bowl. I have now been for both lunch and dinner; both times I ate some great food, and right before the Warren Miller movie, fantastic pisco sours!
The vibe is like many new restaurants in Walnut Creek: a nice, hip atmosphere, slightly overpriced, but it delivered on results. The roasted chicken and ceviche are their signature dishes and the Pisco sours do not disappoint.
In our rush to get to the movie, we sat at the bar and shared a half chicken, green beans and we just had to have the truffle macaroni and cheese. My only complaint is when we left, my clothes smelled smoky like cooked food.
Overall, I really enjoyed Limon, especially those pisco sours! They have an extensive bar and a fabulous selection of Tequila. A handful of restaurants have recently closed (Lark Creek, Sunol Ridge and Vic Stewart’s), making Limon a great option for a nice dinner. There are two locations in San Francisco, one in Burlingame, and one opening in Hawaii this year.
