What you're getting: Carne asada burrito grande
Long ago, on a road trip to far far away, or, uh, Las Vegas, we discovered Baja Taco -- buried in a strip mall next to a Stater Brothers and constantly busy with a slew of locals, piling up pickled veggies and homemade salsa. The kingmaker, though, is the burrito grande, which is literally arm-sized and packed with enough meat, cheese, beans, rice, and veggies to keep one person fed for a whole weekend. Seriously. We've seen it done.
What you’re getting: Si Food octopus burrito (pulpo)
Burritos and “fresh fish” don’t usually go hand-in-hand, but at Pesca, the octopus is tender, the shrimp juicy, and the crab fresh/buttery. With grilled bell peppers and onions, rice, whole beans, pico de gallo, chopped cucumbers, and chipotle and tomatillo sauce, this monstrosity is worth the almost $9 price tag.
What you're getting: Carne asada burrito (dry)
Despite being wrapped in a thick, fresh, warm flour tortilla, the juice from the carne asada oozes through with each bite. Also, this burrito's been scientifically proven to cure massive morning-after headaches. Proven!
