Looking for the best breakfast burrito in SGV

I was wondering if anyone knew where I could find a good breakfast burrito in or around the SGV. I want something big and hearty and not some limp crap at Taco Bell or Carl's Jr haha I used to go school around La Mirada and this place (forgot name) served one of the best breakfast burrito, ever. It was loaded with potatoes, eggs, cheese w/ your choice of: bacon, ham or sausage. You can get all three meat choices which I usually do. I really miss it but don't want to drive 30-45 minutes every morning. TIA!

      My two favorite places for breakfast burritos in Pasadena are Lucky Boy & Top's.

        I'm pretty convinced that the breakfast burrito at Lucky Boy takes a year off of your life every time you eat one. 'Course, it's one of those years at the end, and those aren't the good ones anyway, right? Sooooooo good.

          Lucky Boy on Arroyo Pkwy in Pasadena beats them all. Biggest breakfast burrito I've ever had and I order it with no potatoes and its full of bacon and eggs. Available all day long on the weekends.

          I know it's a chain, and it probably lacks the breadth of ingredients you're looking for anyway, but the chorizo and egg breakfast burrito at La Salsa is, I think, quite good.

            My favorite to date is: P&G Burgers

            The b'fast burritos are very filling and a perfect combination of flavors. I, personally, opt for no cheese (my way of making it 'healthier') and it's certainly not lacking without it. I especially like them because they are made with shredded potatoes vs. home style potatoes. I've never noticed or asked if they would combine meats... but I'd imagine they would.
