Velasco's North of the Border is one of Petaluma's gems. It's open and airy, with lots of windows looking out onto busy Washington Street and quaint Kentucky Street. It's a comfortable place to dine and relax with family and friends. Teri, the owner of Velasco's, is delightful, and you will find her at the restaurant more often than not. There is something on the menu for everyone -- meat, fish, vegetarian, and vegan options -- so everyone in your party will be happy. Their Spanish rice is delicious...and it's vegan! When I was there last week, vegan tamales were one of the specials of the day. They were sooooo good, as good as the veggie burrito (ordered with no cheese or sour cream makes it vegan) that has been my favorite for years. Their veggie burritos have chunks of potato inside. Yum! Their iced tea is another favorite of mine. Oh, and the restaurant has a bar, so you can order a Margarita or other drink to go with your meal. There's everything to love here, so give Velasco's a try the next time you're in downtown Petaluma. Enjoy!

Pros: Excellent Food, Generous Portions, Excellent Value
