Thankfully, there are plenty of mouth-watering options to try! To help you out, we’ve curated a list of the perfect burrito for every occasion. Whether it be late-night cravings, a fancy-date burrito hangout, or a penny-pinching alternative, here are 8 burritos that’ll keep you happy and full under any circumstance.

Roberto's Taco Shop The fix: Carne Asada Burrito from Roberto’s Taco Shop

A burrito for when you’re on a student budget

The fix: Bean and Cheese Burrito from Great White Hut

Doling out Mexican fast food since 1947, this walk-up stand in Glendale has stood the test of time.

The Bean and Cheese Burrito, prepared with a flour tortilla, beans, cheese, cilantro, onions, and salsa, is a crowd favorite and will only set you back $5.99!

Burros & Fries The fix: Surf and Turf Burro from Burros & Fries

Everything you’ve heard is true, assuming you’ve heard that the mammoth Surf and Turf Burro contains the awesome combination of carne asada, fresh shrimp, melty cheese, fresh fries, rice, and their secret white sauce. It’s cheap. It’s creative. And it’s delicious.

A burrito for late nights

Sombrero Mexican Food The fix: Special Burrito Jumbo Deluxe from Sombrero Mexican Food

You know a burrito means business when it requires a knife and fork. This San Diego favorite goes heavy on the beef, strong on the beans, and wonderfully sloppy on the signature sauce and cheese that covers their enormous Jumbo Deluxe burrito. The best part? They’re open till 3am on Fridays and Saturdays, so you can end your night on a burrito high!

Tacos Super Gallito The fix: Wet burrito from Tacos Super Gallito

An enormous wet burrito loaded with your choice of protein, up to 12 condiments, and all the cheese you can imagine, is the kind of food that turns good late nights into great ones. At the food truck, Tacos Super Gallito, there are 9 proteins to choose from, including cow tongue and cow head for the adventurous, and chicken and shredded pork for the more faint-hearted.

A burrito for when you’re feeling a little bit fancy

Kogi The fix: Burritos OG Kogi Style from Kogi Taqueria - Palms

The iconic taco truck that birthed the Korean Mexican taco movement and put the legendary Roy Choi on the map, Kogi is the place to order from when you’re feeling a little bit extra. Wake up with the Burritos OG Kogi Style, filled lovingly with your choice of protein, hashbrowns, softly scrambled eggs, jack and cheddar cheeses, cilantro-onion lime relish, Kogi slaw, and salsa in a perfectly fluffy flour tortilla.

Komodo The fix: Komodo 2.0 Burrito from Komodo

Question: If you’re ordering from a restaurant that has a seared top sirloin steak burrito, in what scenario would you not order it? While this modern Asian Californian fusion restaurant has many top-of-the-line burritos on offer, the Komodo 2.0 Burrito is probably the star attraction. The steak is complemented with a jalapeno aioli and Southwest corn salad, lending for a nice spicy kick.
