On the Border

One of my favorite things to order at OTB is their outstanding “Classic Burrito”! Seasoned ground beef, pico de gallo and cheese rolled up in a flour tortilla smothered with a delicious chile con carne. I always add a few fresh jalapeño slices on top.

Miguel’s Cocina

Excellent “Miguel’s Trio Burritos” at Miguels’ in 4S Ranch! Three mini burritos with Miguel’s signature sauces. Carnitas with verde, carne asada with red enchilada and shrimp with jalapeño cream.

Hacienda Casa Blanca

Big, beautiful Chimichanga at HCB in El Cajon!

Mi Guadalajara

I celebrated National Tequila Day (July 24) at Mi Guad in Esco! Outstanding “Burrito Loco”; made with shredded beef, along with guacamole, pico de gallo, lettuce, rice, and beans (omitted) inside a large, supple flour tortilla. The whole thing is then blanketed with their excellent house made enchilada sauce, melted cheese and sour cream.


Rubio’s calls this a “Classic Grilled Shrimp Burrito”. I call it a “Rice” burrito with a little bit of shrimp! Despite the disappointing proportions, it was still tasty.

La Palapa Mexican Restaurant & Cocktails

Outstanding wet burrito at La Palapa in Lakeside, CA!

Casa Machado Mexican Restaurant

Excellent #15 combination plate at Casa Machado! Beef burrito and cheese enchilada all smothered with their delicious sauce that I could just take a bath in.

Nuevo Grill & Cantina

Excellent chimichanga smothered with an exquisite ranchero sauce at Nuevo Girl in Ramona, CA!

Nuevo Grill & Cantina

Remarkable “Ultimate Burrito” at Nuevo Girl in Ramona! Excellent carne asada, sautéed bell peppers and onions, wrapped in a warm, supple flour tortilla, then blanketed with their delicious enchilada sauce and melted cheese. This burrito was so long it was almost hanging over the edge of the plate!

Bit & Spur

Popular among the locals, Bit & Spur is a fantastic and beautiful restaurant with excellent service! In fact, we went twice during our visit it was that good. This time I had an outstanding wet burrito.
