Where and what are your fave breakfast burritos? I had the best one of my life yesterday, from my aforementioned "Mario's" (The guys with the monster nachos). 99 cents buys you a burrito that must weigh well over a pound..stuffed to the gills with chorizo, eggs, potatoes, cheese, salsa and onions (the last two are optional)..wow..these monsters are even good cold, later in the day, because I could never finish a whole one.. and they didn't give me heartburn! Where else could you get all that for 99 cents?

It's kinda pricey for Roadfood, but I can't resist this one (eggs, smoked bacon, asadero cheese) at the Inn of the Anasazi in Santa Fe, NM: (that's guacamole in the right foreground, hash browns in back)

The Green Burrito, a chain in SoCal has the 'Big Ed' A 2 pounder that is great...if you can handle it!! If you do this in the morning, there is no need for lunch!

If you happen to be in Minturn, CO, (near Vail) check out the Minturn Turntable restaurant for a Boo's Breakfast Burrito. It is worth the trip.

Breakfast burritos from the catering trucks(AKA roach coach) in Southern California are my favorite. Chock full of fluffy eggs, bacon, ham, potatoes and rolled up into a nice warm tortilla. With a little salsa on the side....mmm mmm mmm! You can't go wrong for only 2 bucks!
They are truly more than the sum of the parts.
A heart attack on a plate...I allow myself one a month.

When I used to work in downtown Denver, these guys would come by the courthouse with coolers full of hot breakfast burritos that had been made up at home that morning. Mild or spicy, and the spicy ones would light you up! Those were the best. I've tried making my own, but they don't come close.

At the "Farm Boys" stand at the Saturday farmer's market in downtown Des Moines, IA they serve one item----a breakfast burrito with bacon, sausage, fried potato, scrambled eggs, onion, jalapeno. sour cream and salsa. Add Tabasco and you've got a great meal to savor while walking through the city blocks of fresh Iowa produce.

the best i have ever had was from a place called "moondogs" at Snowmass in Colorado. They have several different kinds but my favorite had chicken fried steak, gravy, a fried egg, and hot sauce all wrapped up together. My colon aches just thinking about it...but man was it good.

The huge breakfast burrito at the Frontier in Albuquerque is also excellent (hash browns, eggs and cheese, with green chile smothering the burrito), but so is their (non-burrito) carne adovada, eggs, hash browns and fresh tortilla breakfast. Ate there twice the last time I was in town.

The best I've ever had were from a Hispanic man that sold them out of a shack in Navasota, TX. $1 each! Couldn't beat the price. They were very different from others that I've had. And many different kinds. My favorite had potatoes, bacon, eggs and some sort of mixture of onions, tomatoes and peppers. It was great! And they gave you a side of homemade hot sauce that was the icing on the cake. The next best I've ever had were from Elena's in Beaumont. I think I liked their's because of all the bacon and cheese they loaded them down with. Plus, their hot sauce is at the top of my list.

San Marcos Cafe, just outside of Santa Fe on the Turquoise Trail, serves a wonderful Breakfast Burrito and lots of other inventive egg dishes. Make sure you have one of their incredible puffy hot Cinnamon Rolls to finish the meal.

Aggie Elena's has been there forever. What a hole in the wall! What food! They are some of the few restaurants to feature Mole, and barbacoa, trendy be damned...

I miss my Texas digs

Burp!

I can't believe that my favorite place hasn't been mentioned! I guess there aren't that many socal people on this board.

If you're ever in North San Diego County, you've got to try Pipes Cafe in Cardiff. They have breakfast burritos that are absolutely huge & very tasty. The first time I ate there I had a #1, which contains scrambled eggs, avocado, sausage, and pica sauce. It was pretty good, although my weak stomach had major problems with the pica sauce later. Feeling that they had a great core product, I returned to order a second time sans pica sauce. I've been hooked ever since. They offer (I think) three types of coffee. When I started going there they only offered the kona, but it was so good that I haven't bothered trying the others. They also now have an espresso stand, but once again the kona still has my devotion (and living in Seattle has spoiled me on good espresso). The decor is strictly a surfing motif (the joint's name comes from the term for when a wave will roll into a barrel), and has a television that features surf videos all day. I will warn you that this place can have sort of long lines on Saturday & Sunday morning, but I've waited longer for less quality food. And I believe the lines testify to the quality in another manner....I've never seen an ad for this place. It's simply been the word of mouth that's sold this place.

For a review in a local paper....

The Starliner Diner in Columbus (actually it's in Hilliard right outside of I-270) has my favorite. This a neat little diner that specializes in Cuban food among other things. I haven't been there in a while but I remember the burrito as being huge and full of eggs, cheese, black beans, onions, ham and topped with a nice salsa with jsut the right amount of cilantro. I am one who does not like too much cilantro. I think it can easily overpower the other flavors in a dish. This one had just enough to give it that fresh taste.

The " Best Breakfast Burrito" that I have ever eaten is without a doubt in Norman, Oklahoma at a small place on Main Street called "The Diner". It is a little cafe with one row of stools at the bar and one row of booths,seats about 40 people, but man oh man, the Eggarito is unbelieveable. Eggs, cheese, onions, black olives, sausage, tomatoes, etc. topped with their very own green chile sauce, which is made fresh daily. Comes with a side of home fries. Awesome!!

In San Antonio the tradition on weekends is to have barbacoa tacos for breakfast. Barbacoa is a cow or calf's head slow cooked for 12 hours or more. We lived around the corner from Calaveras Meat Market and every Friday and Saturday night they would fire up their old rusty oil drum BBQ pits and cook up a couple of dozen heads. In the morning you'd line up and buy it by the pound, they just scrape the fall-apart tender meat off the skull. They we'd drive a couple of blocks to the Cincinatti Tortillaria and buy a dozen fresh flour tortillas. With homemade salsa it was a killer.

Actually, KJolly is absolutely right. Barbacoa, done right, is an absolute killer breakfast.

And the meat kind of tastes like a very soft, slow-simmered pot roast. Add a little guacamole and you've got food fit for the gods.

And another San Antonio delight are carne guisada tacos. It's kind of like a chili-infused beef stew that can be found at most of the little taco shops around town - and even now at Chick-Fil-A.

But try a carne guisada taco next time you are in South Texas. Add a little grated cheese and salsa and I guarantee you'll thank me for it.

There is a place in Point Comfort,Texas, just off the causeway from Port La Vaca that has the greatest breakfast burito I've ever seen. Don't remember the name but it is about the only resteraunt in town. Has a cafeteria line with everything you could ever dream of puting on a burito (including cabaza) you just go along and tell em' what you want. Seems like they ran less than $2.50 when I was there a few years ago. Everybody that worked in the area liked to take several to work most days, huge crouds every morning.

I agree with another poster that, in San Diego, Pipes' breakfast burritos are epic. Their sister store, Konos, in Pacific Beach has the same menu and quality.

if you're in the Palm Springs/Palm Desert area, the breakfast burrito at the Beer Hunter, near La Quinta, is very grubbin.

Circle C grocery in Rotan, TX. (Oh, yeah, you'd definitely be lost if you found it.) They make homemade tortillas every day, and to be honest, I don't care WHAT'S in them - they're always awesome. My favorites are the potato and meat (what kind of meat? who the heck knows?) and the "brisket" - which I strongly suspect is old fashioned barbacoa. Sometimes you bite into something that you just know isn't "brisket" - brisket doesn't have odd little smooth pieces. But get there early - they sell out FAST.

My favorite breakfast burrito can be found at the Frontier in Albuquerque. I stop there for a burrito, a cinnamon bun and a glass of fresh OJ before I go to the airport to fly back home on each of my business trips to NM. Delicious!

I'd have to say that Anita's here in Northern Va. does a heck of a good Breakfast Burrito! Oh yeah and at a buck a piece they price is right....for another buck you can add some excellent Chorizo!

In Santa Fe we love the BB at "Over Easy" a little hole-in-the-adobe off Rodeo Road and Camino Carlos Rey.

They are only open 7 am to 2pm so they specialized in breakfast and have these huge BB's with eggs, potatoes and green chile that fill ya up right good!!!

Some Wendys outlests in our area recently started a breakfast menu...there is a breakfast burrito on the menu and it is surprisingly tasty....awesome even.
