Best Drowning Flautas

The Screaming Goat

As if the flauta itself isn't already the perfect blend of crispy, crunchy, gooey, and yummy, the fine folks at the Screaming Goat drench the darned things in a piping hot, screamingly good, brothy red sauce. The style is called "ahogada" (drowned), and its version is fit for goatherds and kings alike. What could be better? How about 75-cent (?!) flautas on Thursdays and Sundays, daily beer specials, and an adorable, old house atmosphere? And fret not, your meal will never be interrupted by horrific bleating: Goat is not even on the menu.
