Best lard-free burritos

I love burritos, especially Mission-style, but I hate the taste of lard. Where should I go?

  1. The new Yuccas (Yucas?) on Hollywood across from Cobras and Matadors has vegie burritos w/ lard free beans and tortillas. My veg friends swear by them.

      1. Hardly Mission, but definitely lard free - Poquito Mas.

        1. The border burrito at Eduardo's is sort of Mission-style. It has rice, black beans, guac, sour cream, cheese, meat (grilled steak or chicken only), and salsa. The tortilla isn't steamed though, it's griddled. They don't use lard in their beans. If you get it to go they will wrap it in foil!

          1. Kay and Daves doesn't use lard in anything -- very healthy and delicious. One in West LA on Pico and the original one on (I think) 26th Street off of San Vicente Blvd. in Brentwood.
