El Azteca in La Mesa is a no-frills strip mall joint serving up no-nonsense burritos, tacos, and enchiladas, with its enormous California burrito being the standout.
Boasting a more upscale vibe than your average taco and burrito joint, Don Bravo in La Jolla is full of surprises (hamburgers, ceviche, and churros!) as well as high-quality takes on all your favorites.
This 24-hour burrito haven stands ready to save your boozy soul any night you happen to find yourself in North Park after (or during) your drinking adventures. Flavorful meat and fresh pico bring their offerings to the next level.
One of San Diego's best Mexican joints, they have an extensive menu which features massive burritos, plus an ever-refilled salsa bar.
Traditional hole-in-the-wall Mexican food at it's best, Sarita's in Spring Valley dishes out burritos the size of your calf, loaded with guacamole and sour cream.
Lucha Libre Taco Shop in Mission Hills embodies the zany energy of the Mexican brand of masked pro wrestling. In a high-energy space with hot pink walls, framed pop art, and lucha masks all around, tacos and burritos are the true champions. One such knockout is the Surfin' California burrito, a 14in tortilla packed tight with steak, shrimp, avocado, French fries, cheese, pico de gallo, and chipotle sauce. Discounts on various menu items are rewarded to those crazy enough to show up in an actual lucha mask.
