Never On Monday: Ice B. Reviews the Grand Old Lady of Tacos
Emma's Taco House is located at 1617 Sacramento Avenue in West Sacramento, California (zip code 95605).
You could eat at Emma's almost every day, except on Monday's when it is closed, and still desire to come back often for more. This is one of those classic places to go and eat in the Sacramento region. The food is great and far better than at the now-closed satellite site in downtown Sacramento.
Park your gas sipper on the private rock/dirt/asphalt lot close to the front door. The service is friendly, prompt and quick. The restrooms are clean. This is simply a great place to meet for a meal with a group of friends, family, co-workers or music critics; or just stop by on your own for a quick meal.
They have tables or booths plus a large meeting room that they'll hold for you and your guests if you call ahead. Look for the Emma's sign or you might miss it.
Notes: Ice B. is an artist, social commentator and a co-founder of The Purple Haze Alliance. Depending on whom you choose to believe, Emma's Taco House has been in constant operation at this location since either 1949 or 1950. (Munchy says to make sure to try the beef tamale plates! He's eaten take-out tamales since his kitten days.)
