Mike’s Taco Club
Mike’s Taco Club is the real MVP when it comes to satisfying textures. Not only does this eatery pile on the sour cream, but it also includes guacamole as a standard ingredient—which is a move we definitely support—ensuring the dreaded dry burrito remains a figment of your imagination. Indulge in every last bite of creamy, seasoned perfection that is bound to make you forget your previous San Diego burrito eating ways.
Lucha Libre is not your average taqueria. With two locations in San Diego, this kitschy, pink, and Mexican wrestling-themed taco shop serves a mean San Diego burrito. Their menu also features a host of delicious classics with gourmet twists, the Surfin’ California burrito being one of their top-sellers. More good news? This awesome joint is also open till 2:30 a.m. on weekends—the perfect place to go when you have the munchies after a night out.
JV’s Mexican Food
JV’s Mexican Food is perhaps the complete opposite of Lucha Libre.

The California burrito in this San Diego joint is made with carne asada, fries, guac, sour cream, salsa, cheese, and the biggest tortilla you've ever seen—it’ll have you hooked.

If you’re after their California burrito, you’ll be glad to know that every mouthful gives you an explosion of flavors with carne, guac, sour cream, and crispy fries. Pair your burrito with a side of carne asada fries and you have yourself an A+ meal.
