The California burrito is the standard by which all other massive bricks of Cal-Mex food are measured.
It’s a jumbo flour tortilla filled with carne asada, guacamole, pico de gallo, cheese, and—setting itself apart from the bean and rice-base Mission burrito—a fat handful of French fries.
Who invented the California burrito?
The California burrito originated at an unknown -berto’s named restaurant in San Diego in the 1980s. The Fresh MXN chain (formerly Santana’s) also claimed to be the originator of the California burrito. The earliest-known published mention was in a 1995 article in the Albuquerque Tribune.
