I hear a lot of smack talk, usually from people from California, about the burritos here. I'm assuming that it's at least partially justified, given how prevalent it is, but whenever I've tried to pin someone down for specifics about what makes them better, I rarely get anything more articulate than a "you guys just don't know how to make mexican food" type of response.
Though I haven't extensively researched this, I've done more than a few cursory searches, and have been unable to find a substantive comparison. Anything that I stumbled upon written by people who claim more knowledge on the subject rarely offered more than passing comments about the seasoning of this or the texture of that.
Could someone who's familiar with the burritos here, who is also familiar with the burritos in one of the areas that's well known for making good burritos, provide some insight?
Is it mostly an ingredient quality thing? Are the fillings and sauces actually different? Is it the tortillas? Is there any place in the area that's particularly close to another specific regional style?
