I don't know but if it is the best but Yuca's on Hillhurst has a pretty good Carne Asada burrito.

The meat is really flavorful and the tortilla tastes buttery (from the juices of the carne).

Most mexican food places the meat just tastes bland to me.

Eh.

Not necessarily LA, but Taco Mesa(various OC locations) has won various awards from LA Times, OC Register, LA/OC Metro, etc for their burritos

Go to the ethnic neighborhoods where nothing is written in English.

If you are in the suburbs, drive around at lunch time and look for a hole in the wall Mexican restaurants with a bunch of 1980's era Toyota pickups with lawnmowers and gardening equipment in the back.

"B" restaurants are better than "A" restaurants.

That place will be the best.

Eat at a place that looks like this:

for really good burritos catch a taco truck on the east side (the real east side, not silver lake or echo park). or you can go to tepeyac on evergreen, but it can be over rated.

I'll throw my hat in the ring for El Tepeyac, too. It may be somewhat overrated, but I've never been disappointed with any of their burritos (or anything else they have). I heard about it for years before I ever went there, so I went with high expectations, and was not disappointed. I've been going there for years now, too, but only occasionally.

Another of my favorites is the Burrito Factory, which is a small chain with about 4 stores in the north San Fernando Valley and a couple in the Santa Clarita valley. They have lots of burrito choices, and all that I've had (a lot of them over the years) were quite good. I recommend the "Mucho Macho" burrito as one of my favorites. It also comes in a smaller version, the "Junior Macho."
