Agreed. I've have some good ones in the area, but haven't found one yet that compares.

Default "Pregnant Burrito"

It's been years but there used to be a place in Culver City near the hospital that everyone called "the pregnant burrito" although its real name was El Nopal. They are apparently still around and if they're anything like they used to be, they're wonderful. I swear there was half a chicken in each burrito. I can see I've got some research to do next time I pass through LA.

YouTube - I love Tito's tacos



This joint in Culver City has a line down the street, around the block 7 days a week.

Although not technically the best burrito in L.A., I've been addicted to the Spuderito from Rick's Drive-In, on Walnut, in Pasadena. It's a tortilla filled with very good french fries, cheese and a very mild salsa. Many of my friends who were either incredulous or repulsed were turned into converts or at least had to admit it wasn't as bad as they had imagined.

Another oddball is the legendary, eponymous Oki Dog. It's two hot dogs, pastrami and chili cheese in a flour tortilla. I'm not a big fan of their chili but the Oki Dog is de rigueur for every Angeleno or tourist. I miss the old location on Santa Monica Blvd. but the Fairfax location has its own, hard-to-duplicate ambience.

Not just pastrami, grilled pastrami.

The Oki dog is an L.A. classic. It's a hell of a sodium bomb as well, so anymore than a few bites are too many for my old fart system.
