If you look at my location in the upper right corner you'll see I'm outside of SD County.

Honestly, if Chipotle burritos are the best they've ever had, then I feel bad for them.

Central and Eastern WA. Gas stations in small towns like Quincy carry deep-fried bean and cheese burritos. OMG, so good.


My current list:

1) Miguel's Jr, Corona, CA (with other locations sprinkled around the Inland Empire). BEST in the WORLD imo.

2) Taco Star, Commerce City/Thornton/Longmont/Colorado Springs, CO (the cheese/tortilla are mouth watering)

3) Coronado's/Raliberto's, Westminster/Wheat Ridge, CO (overall, good balance of quality)

4) Casa Vallarta, Aurora, CO (sit down)

5) Don Jose, Riverside, CA (sit down)

6) Illegal Pete's, Denver, CO (Chipotle or Qdoba if they were actually good).

Honorable mentions: Baker's (Corona, CA/Inland Empire); Lucky Greek (Corona, CA).

Dishonorable mention: Alberto's (Riverside, CA {have no idea why people like them}).

Who's lived/worked in California. Do you believe that San Diego "does food better than the Bay" Area? If so, I'd love to hear your reasoning; if not, what exactly was your point here?

I've never, ever, in my entire life seen San Diego ranked ahead of San Fran for food by a legit 3rd party or critic. Have you?

Well, I'm not nslander but, I've had way better burritos and tacos from cheap taquerias in SD than in SF and when I say "food" I mean Mexican food, the only kind I care about, which is what this thread is about. Most food critics don't frequent cheap taquerias and I rarely eat pricey so maybe we're discussing this from two different angles.

You find it inconceivable that San Diego can deliver better Mexican food than San Francisco. Ok.
