  1. seen this same question before but my vote is for al & b's in boyle hts

      1. I have 3 friends who swear by Yuca's bean & cheese.

        1. Try the bean & cheese burrito (it comes with some green-style sauce inside and its good) at Cozy Corner Drive-In in Santa Ana on Harbor/Hazard. Its huge and tasty and only a little more than $2!

          1. J&S in Montebello is truly a gem for bean & cheese burritos and the best I've had anywhere in SoCal IMHO! They have been in business for over 40 years and open 24 hours! J&S is located on Garfield avenue just south of the Pomona fwy.

            1. Taco Plus: Bean and cheese burrito, with cilantro, onions, and salsa. Ask them to add pico and sliced avocado. The result reminds me of the veggie burrito at Taqueria Cancun in SF...

                when you all mean bean and cheese burritos, are you noting that there's lard or not. and more to the point, are 99% of bean and cheese burritos have lard in the beans?


                1. re: kevin

                  No lard at Taco Plus. They also don't have refried beans -- only whole black and pinto.

                    what's the location of taco plus?


                    1. re: kevin

                      I go to the one on Bundy in the mini-mall with 7-11, but there's another location on National, too. Here's their website:


                      Forgot to mention -- the burrito comes with rice as well.

                        That's in my neck of the woods, right next door to the Italian joint. The Italian place doesn't look that tempting at all, but keeps long hours, is it worth a try too?
