what is a mission burrito?

How would you define a mission style burrito?

I grew up in San Jose, CA and I just ate what I called burritos.

Now reading these boards, I hear people from all over the country referring to mission-style burritos and specifically referencing "burritos like those in SF." Why is this little district credited with what I just called a standard burrito? Are they so different in other parts of the country? Were the burritos I ate in San Jose and Salinas different until someone from SF Mission district introduced it to the rest of the bay area?
