Craving a good breakfast burrito in the Pasadena area. Thanks in advance!

  1. Dona Rosa has great burritos and other breakfast-y foods. It's at the intersection of Arroyo Parkway and California. YUMMY!

      Totally agree re Dona Rosa on breakfast "burritos and other breakfast-y foods"!

      Sometimes I just want a little breakfast burrito, and frankly like McDonald's for that. :p

    2. Here's a link to a discussion of Lucky Boy, which quickly broke off into a discussion of breakfast burritos in Pasadena. Hope this helps:

      1. Blasphemy, I know, but I had a really good breakfast burrito last week at La Salsa: .

              Or anywhere. Nothing compares to Lucky Boy. Just don't go for the vegetarian - they don't know what to do with it and add huge amounts of potatoes to compensate for the lack of bacon and sausage.

                  Lucky Boy is where again? I always get it confused with Tops. :/

                I agree - Lucky Boy is the king. Often, though, there's WAY too much bacon in the burritos. Too much in that "heart-stopping sick for days" way too much. A secret I learned from my friends in high school: order the regular burrito and ask for the bacon on the side. You'll recieve a burrito and enough bacon to feed an entire room full of hungry high schoolers, even after you reload your burrito with a more manageable amount of bacon (trust me, it's plenty). And who doesn't need tons and tons of leftover bacon? ;)

                  Yes, Lucky Boy is by far the best breakfast burrito, and not just in Pas. I drive from Hollywood. I now get it with ham, as the bacon is just too much.
