Tacos are a San Diego staple, but most locals know that burritos are a close second for must-try food in the city. From breakfast burritos to Cali-style, that come loaded with fries and guac, here are some top spots to chow down for National Burrito Day on April 1st!

The Taco Stand is known for their authentic taqueria experience, inspired by the taco stand of Tijuana and the Baja Peninsula, but all four San Diego locations also serve flavor-packed burritos. Try the California, with flame grilled anus steak, cheese, fries, guacamole, tomato, salsa, and sour cream! People may think fries don’t belong in a burrito, but we know better here in Cali.

We can’t think of a better way to start National Burrito Day than with Duck Dive’s Breakfast Burrito! Loaded with house-made chorizo, potatoes, poblanos, roasted corn, queso fresco, cheddar cheese, scrambled eggs, and fresh cilantro, all wrapped in a spinach tortilla, this tasty menu item will leave you fully fueled for the day ahead.

Quiero Tacos just opened their doors in Seaport Village, and they’ve got four delicious burritos to choose from! Sue to be a fan favorite is the Carnitas Tatemadas, made with seared, slow-cooked pulled pork carnitas, fries, guac, pico de gallo, and lime aioli. Quiero Tacos also offers a Veggie Burro, packed with Mexican zucchini, corn, black beans, walnuts, melted asadero cheese, and basil vinaigrette drizzle.

Cruise over to Mavericks Beach Club, in PB, for refreshing drinks and Baja-inspired bites, both of which can be enjoyed in a fun atmosphere! You won’t regret ordering the Burrito, comprised of a fresh flour tortilla, cilantro lime rice, pinto and black beans, cheddar jack cheese, lettuce, pico de gallo, chipotle aioli, cotija cheese, and corn tortilla chips, with your choice of protein. You can select from chicken, carne asada, shrimp, mahi mahi, or seared ahi – yum!

Gaslamp’s Breakfast Company knows that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, which they’re inviting you to pull up a chair and enjoy National Burrito Day! Bite into the California Breakfast Burrito, an oh-so-delicious combo of shirt steak, rosemary roasted potatoes, chopped bacon, scrambled eggs, bell pepper, cream sauce, pico de gallo, guacamole, and cheddar cheese in a flour tortilla, served with house potatoes and salsa. Pair with a breakfast cocktail or Bloody Mary to toast to the day!
