“Really Good Food”
Reviewed 20 April 2012

Try not to get there during the rush hour or you'll be waiting. Food is good. "Chips" are tortillas; a little different, but good. Great salsa.

I live this place. I can order ahead and pick up dinner ir eat in. They are almost always busy. Great food. Good service. Atmosphere is casual. I almost always get the #12 Carmen Asada plate. Soups are good too.

“Quality Mexican Food at Fair Prices”
Reviewed 29 November 2011

I've eaten at this particular El Burrito Jr. Restaurant numerous times over the past couple of years, and it is one my favorites in the South Bay area of Los Angeles where there is a surplus of mediocre Mexican restaurants that are primarily aimed for American taste buds.

This El Burrito Jr. is a new restaurant, so everything is new, and very clean. The service is adequate, with self seating when you enter. The staff is Mexican-American, and they all speak and understand English. They serve a varied menu of Mexican food, breakfast, lunch, and dinner. From full meals, to appetizers, burritos, tostadas, nachos, fajitas, soups, and combination plates, as well as various Mexican & American beers, soft drinks, and Mexican soft drinks too.

My favorites dinners are the Chille Verde w/Pork, the Carnitas, Carne Asada, the Taquitos with your choice of asada, chicken, or pork meat, and the Chille Colorado.

This particular evening I had the Taquitos with pork meat, and my friend had the Carne Asada dinner, they are both served with rice and beans. The Taquitos with pork were well prepared, the corn tortillas were hot, crunchy, and the pork was very flavorful. My friends Carne Asada was prepared well done, the meat was well marinated, very tender and succulent. The house salsa is made with a mild to medium chilli kick to it. The beans and rice are eatable. For my tastes, Mexican rice and beans are difficult to dublicate Mom's homemade rice and beans. . . .

The food at El Burrito is above average Mexican food, with the food prepared more for the American taste buds than Mexican taste buds. But has much more Mexican flavor than the more upscale Acapulco and El Torrito Restaurants in the Southern California area.
