Used to go here primarily. The meats are dunked in sauces so it comes out a bit messy. You can order things grilled as well. I'm still not sure how they price their extras (sour cream, cheese, guac) but it comes out to around $5-6.

I'd definitely recommend it, if only to try something new. An excellent burrito joint.

I think this is the place that has therated #1 sign out every year. It's really overwhelming for a gringo like me. but the burrito "bar" selections are delicious. It's assembly line and the regulars know exactly out of what looks like a hundred choices, what to put in their burrito. Humongous, no wonder we've got a problem w/ obesity. And I'm sure it's all cooked with the best tasting fat (lard) not that LF gringo stuff.

This is such a cool place. This was my first custom built burrito luncheon and it is still the gold standard. They have just about everything you'd like to have in your burrito. They also have bottomless soda and pretty much all the chips you'd like. You won't need too many chips though, the burritos are huge; a challenge to finish, and you'll want to finish, believe me!

"best burritos ever.. the steak is tasty. if they weren't filled with liquid i would give them 5 stars - i feel like bringing in my own slotted spoon for the guy to use with the beans. still - nothing beats a Super burrito de Asada."

you would never think it, but step back into this mexican grocery store and you'll find a heck of a gem. a full-fledged burrito counter serves some of the best mexican in town! i was referred to this place by a friend and honestly it was one of the best burritos i've ever had in my life! not to mention the portions are HUGE. on your way out, grab some mexican groceries. =)

Pros: nice staff, huge burritos

As the first reviewer said, this place has the most choices of tortilla and fillings I've seen, plus you get to pick your choices from the hot trays as you walk along the counter and point at what you want. I've never seen another burrito place where you can see them make your burrito as you pick your choices. They also have the usual other choices, like tacos. I went there regularly for years before I moved away. Very unique! They also have a similar operation less than 1/2 mile away in the shopping center at the corner of Middlefield and Rengstorff that has the same menu and prices, but much better parking.

This place makes the BEST burritos this side of the border. The many meat selections (Chile Colorado is my favorite) along with the tons of extras to choose from and top it with the variety of salsas. Since it is a burrito shop in the back of a grocery store, there is no ambiance but the food definately makes up for it (just look at the lunchtime line!!!)
