    There comes a time in every man's life where he must admit that he no longer has a teenager's metabolism, and move past greasy rolled quesadillas onto more responsible yet equally delicious burritos.

    Carne Asada Burrito. All day every day. If it is you first time, also order a side of crack sauce.

    Go early, bring cash, & expect to wait 10-15 minutes minimum. Burrito was smaller than what you get at Chipotle but it's much more sense and flavorful. Crack sauce adds nice kick even to chipotle pork

    Ask for the crack sauce either on the side or inside your order. I go for the chipotle pork burrito with crack sauce and it's delicious for lunch!

    One of the best burritos I've ever had and that's saying a lot: I'm from LA. Get a burrito with chicken and steak, add crack sauce. Be prepared to wait a while, it's totally worth it.

    The quesadillas are great and the burritos are good, but the quesadillas take 5-10 minutes longer to make. If you can't wait, get a burrito. (If the line's long, it won't be quick either way.)

    Everything's awesome here, but I'm a huge fan of the Carne Asada burrito. You can also ask for it spicy, which they'll throw habanero sauce on it. The best.

    1) The carne asada gets a lot of Tips love, but my endorsement goes to carnitas. 2) Napkins are often not included. 3) Walk a block north and cross Houston for outdoor seating.

    To avoid the lunch hour rush, try to get there a little before noon. If you do have to wait, make sure you get something with crack sauce to reward your patience.

    If you're in a hurry, go somewhere else. But if you *really* need your Calexico fix, order the black bean burrito. You'll have to skip the meat, but it's the fastest thing on their menu to prepare.
