    The veggie burrito is filled with beans, cheese, rice and guacamole, topped with cheese & ranchera sauce. So good! Husband gets the chile relleno burrito, also good.

    At El Tepeyac, the guacamole is always fresh, the cheese is more than abundant, and in the early hours of the morning, the pork shoulder is patiently simmered for nearly half a day. Read more

    Manuel’s Special Burrito is unrivaled in jaw twisting girth. Don’t be put off by the $23 price tag; you’ll need the greater majority of a frat house to take one down in a single sitting. Read more
