Clint Eastwood made a surprise appearance at a Pocket-area Mexican restaurant this week.
The visit was documented on Vientos Mexican Cocina’s Facebook page, which hosted the actor and filmmaker for lunch Tuesday. 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, the restaurant explained in a comment.

The post garnered several reactions from the restaurant’s fans. Many voiced their surprise over the actor’s visit, as well as disappointment over missing Eastwood during his visit.
“You're kidding, Clint Eastwood at Vientos,” one woman posted. “Would have loved to see him.”
Eastwood made another appearance in Sacramento last October while working on his latest film, “The 15:17 to Paris." The movie centers on three local men who thwarted a terrorist attack while aboard a Paris-bound train in August 2015.
Employees at Vientos Mexican Cocina did not return requests for comment.
