Mr. Incredible and I are constantly on the look out for the best carne asada burrito in San Diego. We've tried many 'hole in the wall' places all over San Diego- east county to the coast. After meeting a fellow Poway resident on this last Romania trip, I was surprised to hear of a place in town that we hadn't tried yet. His recommendation was high- the best California burritos EVER... awesome guac...etc...etc. So we tried it out!
El Ranchito in Poway has the look of a typical 'hole in the wall' from the outside, but is surprisingly clean and kept up on the inside.
We ordered the famous California burritos and a horchata for me (yum). Austin enjoyed their salsa bar as I watched the steady stream of high schoolers ordering their burritos.
Our food came and we dug in. The Carne Asada was tasty, the tortillas fresh, and the rest of the burrito fillings very good. Mr. I finished his and half of mine eagerly.
As I normally go for the Carne Asada burritos and not the Californias I don't know exactly how this one rates... I guess I'll have to take my brother, the King of California Burritos, for a taste and see what he thinks!
Thanks for the restaurant tip Jason- we enjoyed El Ranchito!
