Best Chile Relleno Burrito in LA

This is pretty much my favorite comfort food. Anybody have a fave? I'd be willing to test them all for the sake of the CH community.

      Dommy, Lucy's is my current go-to place for Chile Relleno Burritos...oh, and a large Orange Bang. There's something about those two things together that just makes me feel good!

        I agree with Ana Maria's at GCM. Enormous and tasty chile relleno burritos

          I had the Chile Relleno Burrito at Burrito King about a month or two ago. I was not too impressed. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't extraordinary. They served the WORST tortilla I have ever had a burrito wrapped in. It was horrific. Granted I had it at 1 am so I really didn't care, but I don't feel compelled to go back.

        2. The one at Tere's on Melrose has been recommended...I'm thinking of checking it out soon.
          Dommy, the Burrito King on Sunset? The one on Hyperion always scares me a little.

          1. Not that I think it is necessarily the best in town, but I just had one for breakfast this week at Gilbert's El Indio on Pico Blvd. in Santa Monica (at 23rd street?) and it was quite tasty. Their chips were also hot and fresh from the fryer and I have always had a soft spot for their thin red salsa, and the pickled hot carrots went down well with the meal too.

            1. They'll get you whatever you want your way, except a new passport (unlike the Blue Parrot):

              I have a friend who loves their chile relleno (deep fired?) burrito; however, I have never taken that plunge...

              1. A friend ordered the chili relleno burrito every time we went to EL ABAJENO in Culver City.
