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.

Don Gus Fine Mexican & Seafood

Outstanding Chile Colorado wet burrito at Don Gus in Lancaster, CA! I’ve always loved Chile Colorado as a stand-alone dish, but enveloped in burrito form is just something special. Served “wet” just transcends it to a new level. I of course was shocked and appalled to see beans served with my chips & salsa. Even if they were smooth. Made for a nice photo but that’s where I left it. Salsa was rather bland but overall a great meal and experience.

I think the most trippy part was that the front of this Lancaster restaurant is a dead ringer for our Boll Weevil in Ramona.

On the Border

Always one of my favorite things to order at On the Border! The “Classic Burrito” filled with seasoned ground beef, pico de gallo, and cheese; rolled up like a pillow in a flour tortilla then blanketed with OTB’s delicious red chile sauce.

La Cocina

Outstanding chicken & rice burrito from La Cocina in Ramona, CA!

Manana’s Mexican Food

Still the best breakfast burrito in Ramona! Even if they are getting smaller. 😫
