Super-authentic Mexican takeout in Oakland

From the same couple behind next-door Flora and sit-down Mex-taurant Dona Tomas, Xolo is a takeout-focused getaway for Meh-he-co foodstuff aficionados in Oakland named after a 3,000yr-old hairless dog, and slinging deliciousness like the Vampiro taco (al pastor/ salsa ranchera/ red onions/ serranos/ cilantro served on a fried cheese tortilla), Fri/Sat-only Birria (chile broth-braised goat), and the "Danger Dog", a bacon-wrapped sausage with "the works", also a property historically known for pwning B&O Railroad stakeholders.
