Those burglars were fools. That well seasoned grill is worth well over a million in deliciousness. Sorry to hear about the $, I'll come for a few extra tacos than normal to show my support. Love La Bamba!

"This is never a good idea, and this is an excellent case in point," Wylie wrote. "We advise all companies to make certain their alarm companies notify us when there is an alarm activation."

What a trap. If it's a false alarm, the owner has to pay a fine to the Police Department! Wylie didn't mention that. First they require you to get a permit, and then charge you to the point where you end up policing your on business!

@business owner

That's because the police revenue is dropping, because there cost for pensions are rising.

The La Bamba website lists 3 different locations in Mountain View, but this article doesn't indicated which one was burglarized. Looking at, it appears to be the Old Middlefield location that was burglarized.

I would imagine that this was an inside job if the robbers knew there was more than one safe and where to look.

Good burritos to be had at La Bamba. I hope this doesn't disrupt production.
