Burrito Express has long been said to be the best burrito in The Outer Sunset.
I would not argue that statement. The Taraval St location is kind of dive. Total take-out food. No tables or chairs, just a handful of stools, a heavy weighted entrance door precariously balanced on a slanted floor, and a mob of people waiting for their food; which is the universally acknowledged sign of any healthy food establishment.
And they make a wicked wet carne asada burrito that’s a meal for two.
But the funniest thing about this place is just last month I discovered that they have a frequency customer stamp card.
Buy 9 burritos, the 10th one is free.
I’ve been going to this place for the past 14 years.
I grew up in San Diego. We take our burritos seriously and I’ve literally dropped hundreds of dollars at Burrito Express.
And this is this first time I’ve ever heard about this program.
That’s one of the neat things about living in the city – discovering new restaurants, delis, take-out food, tamale ladies, food carts, illegal hot dog stands, and taco trucks.
Discovering new, exciting, cheap, exotic, and amazing food.
Makes you feel like Christopher Columbus.
And that’s another one of the neat things about being part of the secret club. Like the secret and now outlawed in 50 states 100 X 100 $98 cheese burger at In N Out (And with a dinner party of 8 people that’s a reasonable price) The idea that you’re part of the insider knowledge. You’re onto the secret menu.
And this is the first time I’ve ever had those both feelings at once.
I just discovered that my favorite burrito place in my back yard has a special El Burrito Express Frequent Customer Stamp Card.
