Are you implying cacto does not? Then take it up with him/her. I wasn't addressing you in the first place, I was responding to a direct quote from cacto.

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?
Who cares about these lists. These food critics exaggerate sometimes.

I had burritos in SF and was not impressed. They get soggy fast and their tortillas are flavorless. Believe it or not, there is an art to making good flavorful flour tortillas. My grandma is from northern Mexico and would make them from scratch every day. They should be buttery and flaky when cooked.

San Diego definitely has good burritos. The tortillas for the most part are the good buttery ones. The carne asada is especially flavorful because it is influenced by Tijuana natives where the meat is marinated and smoked.

Chipotle burritos suck big time- so overrated. They use those gross tortillas that have no flavor and taste like plastic.

By food I meant burritos, feel free to freak out a little harder about this mundane subject.

I've had some earth-shattering burritos in Nogales, AZ.

Yeah why isnt Arizona on these lists?

Sonora is home of the burrito and most Mexican food in Arizona is heavily influenced by people from Sonora.

Agreed! I don't get what people find so appetizing about a bunch of cheap filler in burritos like rice. I haven't been impressed by any burritos I've had in the Bay Area, not bad but pretty "meh" IMO.

Sorry, but I (and I believe the majority of people and food critics) strongly disagree. Burritos in the Bay Area are better than San Diego. San Diego burritos are much simpler and I've found them to often be bland. Bay Area burritos are bursting with flavor - take La Taqueria (#2 on this list) for example. Many flavorful ingredients expertly blended in an amazing flour tortilla - every bite is like an incredible meal in itself.

Also, Chipotle has as much to do with true Bay Area-style burritos as Pizza Hut does with authentic NYC pizzerias. Chipotle was started in Denver and supposedly models itself after the "Mission" style, but is in many ways the antithesis of it. It tastes like cardboard and completely lacks flavor. Not to mention no sense of good ingredient distribution. It is a pretty terrible burrito.

Bay Area burritos are bursting with too much rice, that's probably why each bite feels like a meal in itself lol.
