Mi Pueblo Market has a taqueria, and that taqueria has grilled burritos. And a tortilla grilled is vastly better than a tortilla merely steamed. Inside one carnitas burrito, you’ll find nice big hunks of carnitas plus the usual mix of rice, beans, cheese, guacamole, salsa, and crema. These puppies are huge, like one or two pounds per burrito, and fully half the filling is meat. A single visit made this place a candidate for ron c’s favorite taqueria. It’s certainly one of the best joints around for carnitas. tomritza reports tortas here are even better than burritos.

Several folks think Taqueria La Bamba is also great. Excellent soft tacos, great burritos. Al pastor and lengua are really good. And Peter Yee thinks carnitas here is even better than Mi Pueblo’s carnitas. Also recommended: chile colorado tacos.
