May 8, 2020 – Outstanding ‘rona takeout from Rubio’s! I ordered one of my faves, the “Burrito Especial” with grilled chicken. Made with fresh guacamole, citrus rice, black beans (omitted), roasted chipotle salsa, salsa fresca and chipotle sauce. Served with a side of tortilla chips, $8.79. I really appreciate how the burrito bottom doesn’t blow out. They are very well constructed. I was able to eat the whole thing without getting any on my shirt.

Mi Ranchito Taco Shop

I don’t usually order burritos at Mi Ranchito but this chicken asada burrito was excellent! ‘Rona snacks drive thru on April 23, 2020. I’ve often said the best take out is sub sammichs, burritos and Asian food.

Los Amigos

April 15, 2020 – Los Amigos in SDCE for takeout ‘rona snacks today. There’s a lot I don’t like from this taco shop but their burritos and tacos have been consistently good. Had an excellent carne asada burrito with absolutely no oral extractions. Purists may scoff, but I really like the addition of shredded lettuce and that green mayonnaisey guacamole.

Old Town Mexican Cafe

Finally back in SoCal after two weeks in Ohio! Time to thaw out. AND time for some Mexican food. Not far from the airport, located in San Diego’s historic “Old Town”, is the Old Town Mexican Cafe. This place has been a staple since 1977. All their food is handmade and authentic from the finest ingredients available. I kept things simple with an excellent wet burrito.

Sombrero Mexican Food

(Visited November 26, 2019) This is the “Special Burrito” at Sombrero’s, and what a marvel it is! Your choice of shredded beef or chicken with (beans), rice and lettuce made into a huge burrito roughly the size of a small pillow. The whole thing is then made amazing with a liberal blanketing of their signature enchilada sauce and cheese. Unfortunately they did not top with nearly as much cheese as the last time I had one. I could eat this everyday but I’d probably weigh 300 pounds…

Hacienda Casa Blanca

Outstanding chimichanga combination plate at Hacienda Casa Blanca in El Cajon!

Los Amigos

My favorite take out burrito in Ramona is from Los Amigos. Not the best burritos in town, but a good 15 minutes closer than all the other places. I can’t think of a better to-go meal when you don’t feel like cooking. Their carne asada burritos here are made with lettuce inside which I happen to appreciate.

Chipotle Mexican Grill

Continuing to live life on the edge eating at Chipotle! This time I departed from my usual Barbacoa and opted for the chicken in my burrito bowl. Turned out very tasty at the 4S Ranch location.

El Sombrero Restaurant

In Gallup, NM, not too many places were open the Sunday before Memorial Day. El Sombrero however was open so we enjoyed our last New Mexico Chile-fix here. I ordered an excellent carne adovada burrito smothered with New Mexico’s finest green & red!

Lienzo Charro

Tasty chimichanga at Lienzo Charro in Poway! Could have been fried a little longer though. Not really crispy enough.
