Clint Eastwood spends Taco Tuesday at a Sacramento Mexican restaurant

Clint Eastwood made a surprise appearance at a Pocket-area Mexican restaurant on Tuesday.

The visit was documented on Vientos Mexican Cocina’s Facebook page, which hosted the actor and filmmaker for lunch that day. The post included a picture of Eastwood at the restaurant standing with what appears to be an employee.

“What an honor to hang out with him for twenty minutes talking movies,” the post said. “Humbleness personified.”

Eastwood was in the area because his dog was undergoing knee surgery at a nearby veterinarian‘s office, a comment from the restaurant explained.
