breakfast burrito?

Wondering where they make a good one.
Preferably involving guac, cheese, and potatoes.

      My personal favs:

      1. Pepe's (alhambra) My #1 all time fav. Eggs, Potatoes, Bacon, Beans, Cheese.... great comfort food if you're familar w/ Pepe's.
      2. J&S Montebello: After heavy drinking...this salty concoction just hits the spot along w/ greasy taquitos and generic guacamole.
      3. The Taco Room: Only had it twice, and the First time was just phenomenal. The second time was avg.
      4. El Loco: Greasy & Salty....but still good eats.

    2. You must go to Golden Eagle in Signal Hill. It's huge, fresh and delicious. Eggs, cheese, hash browns, sausage, bacon and salsa. I recommend salsa on the side or eat it with ketchup. They could probably give you some guac too. For more on Golden Eagle and pics...

        A second here for Golden Eagle! Their hasbrowns on the inside really taste amazing....like buttter. I get mine with salsa and most days I have both breakfast and lunch with one of those monsters...craveable fo sho!

      2. I had the nastiest (that's nastiest, not tastiest) breakfast burrito I've ever had at the Campos on Jefferson in the Ross/Target mall. It sounded good, potatoes, cheese, meat of your choice. The cheese tasted like Cheeze Whiz, the potatoes were deep fried, there was zero bacon, and that guacamole was watery. Plus $1.69 for a small coke (ouch!) I do have to say the egg was cooked really nice and soft.

        There was an odd service issue as well. They clearly had forgotten my order. It was a slow morning and a couple of people who ordered after me got their orders. The counter woman said in Spanish to the cook "what happened to the breakfast burrito?" He said "what breakfast burrito, who did you tell about a breakfast burrito" she said "Esteban." But then, oddly, the next burrito up was a chicken burrito. Now here's the weird part. Instead of just giving the guy who ordered the chicken burrito his burrito, she says "no, the breakfast burrito is first." And leaves the chicken burrito just sitting there! It's like they didn't want to serve him first since my order had been forgotten. But why let his food get cold, it's not his fault! I wasn't sure what was going on until my order came up, they handed it to me, and then they gave other burrito that was sitting there to the guy.

          I see Campos' everywhere, but I never see anyone inside them. Are they any good?

          1. re: Evan G

            campos used to rule back in the day. i think there are so many now its really about which one your going to.

            1. re: Evan G

              I had only been once before (to the same one) and I can't remember that trip. I certainly remember this one! Blech. I was really hungry when I got my order, but it was so icky I didn't eat it (I took it to go as we were hitting the road, so I couldn't even complain!)

          2. Has anyone had the b-fast burrito at Lucy's Drive-In (Pico/La Brea). I keep hearing raves. What's in the mix?

            1. I just had the BB at Monkey Business on Lemon and Amerige in downtown Fullerton... eggs, avocado, bacon, and cheese, with salsa on the side. Quite tasty.

              1. Found one -- in downtown. Not of much use to you, unless you work near there or are stuck on jury duty.

                Little place called JOSIE'S on Los Angeles St., right across the st. from the police dept., and right in front of City Hall East. It's situated in sort of an odd asian fotomat hut.

                But this is a great breakfast burrito. (potatoes, avocado, sour cream, chorizo, cheese, homemade salsa, pretty much whatever else you want). Excellent tortilla, holds together real well . . .

                Anyway, the guy who runs the place is very cool - will let you start a tab if you work in the area. And Super Cheap.
                Great deal.

                  Josie's does do a great breakfast burro. Their BB's are a great hangover remedy as well! I usually call ahead from my parking lot and pick up my order on the way to the office, lol.

                2. If you're up for the trek, Nicks on Main St. in Seal Beach has developed a loyal following with surfers, business people, ect..

                  1. Lucy's and Cinco de Mayo (why did they change the name and keep the original menu?) have excellent breakfast burritos. So good that I'll also eat them for lunch or dinner.

                    Their egg and onion or machaca are delicious. I used to like the chorizo burrito, but can't seem to eat them anymore. Not because they aren't delicious but because I'm older and can't handle them anymore.

                    I used to, about 15 years ago have a Campos breakfast burrito at least twice a week. It was convenient to where I worked. I'd always say, add rice and no beans and the rice would soak up the delicious sauce served over the enclosed omelet.

                    If they were still the same I'd say go for one, but I can't be sure.

                    1. Corner Cottage in Burbank, CA gets my vote. First time I had it - Sausage, egg, cheese, potatoes (even when I ordered no potatoes) - it was the best breakfast burrito I've ever had in my entire life. Should go for it!

                        I just polished one off (bacon, though, not sausage)... no guac or avocado but still the best ever.

                        1. re: Das Ubergeek

                          YES!!!! Corner Cottage has thee BEST breakfast burritos! Gotta try it.
