Looking for a good California Burrito in the OC

Are there any places that make a good California Burrito in the OC?

Something like this:

I'm in Irvine.

  1. Try one of the Alerto's on Brookhurst in either Fountain Valley or Westminster. There's also Alejandro's in Costa Mesa.

        Do these places put french fries in their burritos?

      2. El Patio #2
        100 N. Magnolia Ave

        1. Taco Pronto in Santa Ana has them on their menu. I didn't try it, but I did notice it today on the menu.

          1714 E McFadden Ave
          Santa Ana, CA 92705
          (714) 558-1082

          1. Los Primos, a San Diego chain, just opened a new location in Fountain Valley. California burritos are on their menu. There's are also two other locations in OC, Lake Forest and RSM.

            9475 Warner Ave
            Fountain Valley CA 92708

            Los Primos

            1. Your link lists FRENCH FRIES as a required ingredient in a "California" burrito. I've lived in SoCal for 50 years and have NEVER had, seen or even heard of a burrito with french fries in it.

              I'm really interested in knowing what others here have to say about this.

                Nor have I. Must be a San Diego thing (I've lived in the Bay Area and LA).

                  I guess you're right, though I've never had the 'pleasure'.




                  I'm not sure I've ever met a french fry I didn't like, so I'll need to check this out....... if I can get past the idea of it.

                    Yes, I can tell that as a SD native, it's definitely local to our area. I never was a fan and miss the regular burritos i.e. carne asada, guacamole and pico de gallo which are near impossible to find in LA.

                2. re: Midlife

                  I've seen them often in SD; occasionally in OC (Molcasalsas have them). I'm picky about my potatoes (and french fries), so I don't usually order them but my adult stepkids do (and swear by them).
