Carne Asada Burritos in the Peninsula?

I'd love to hear any rec's on carne asada super burritos in the peninsula. Other than Pancho Villa, I can't find any decent ones south of San Mateo. I like the real grilled flavor of beef, not marinated in spices. I also remember when they would steam the tortilla with the cheese on it so that it was all nice and melty, and the tortilla so fluffy and soft. Also, fresh salsa and chunky guac. Am I asking too much?

  1. I like El Grullense Grill at 768 Woodside Rd. in Redwood City and El Grullense on Middlefield Rd. near Woodside Rd. (across from Costco next to Sigona Bros. Produce) in Redwood City.

    1. La CosteƱa on Old Middlefield and Rengsdorff. Not only the best carne asada burrito on the Peninsula, not only the best carne asada burrito in California, but the best burrito on earth. That I have had, anyway. Get it with the spiciest salsa and guacamole.

      One old thread on the subject:

      1. Bill Addison, new restaurant critic for the Chronicle, likes Sancho's in Redwood City. Here is a link to his full article on the search for the best burritos in the Bay Area.

        1. The worst burrito on the penninsula is better then any I can get on the east coast, I used to love to go to Baha Cactus in Milpitas for the best Mexican. The best burrito I ever had was at the corner of 10th and Taylor in San Jose. They steam the tortillas and when they're done they weigh in at about 2-3 lbs. For the life of me I can't remember the name of that place, but I miss it so much.
