Help!! Taco Bell Chili Cheese Burrito in the L.A. area?!

I just moved to L.A. from San Francisco, and I'm looking for a Taco Bell location that carries the Chili Cheese Burrito. The website chilicheese.org seems to be shut down. Does anybody know of any locations that carry it? Thanks ahead of time!!

      1. All the locations I have been to in the Pasadena/Arcadia/Eagle Rock/Glendale, etc. areas do not have them. Wish they did, since that is my most favorite TB offering. Found them last year in Illinois, tho... ;-)

          someone mentioned they might have them at a taco bell in glendoro, off route 66 or possibly in el monte. don't know if these will pan out though.

          1. re: kevin

            Thanks, Kevin. I will try them out since I REALLY love the chilito. I have even had them create different things to see if I could mimic at least some of the flavor. Best I have come up with is the all beef and cheese with extra red sauce and the hot hot sauce, but that is barely passable. I will let you know if they do.

              cool, sounds. good,

              and if you happen to run across a Dell Beefer that would be great (though what with their slogan "Think Outside the Bun", they probably won't be selling the D.B).

              1. re: WildSwede

                I just found this old post looking for the Bellbeefer. Seems it may be the El Monte location that may still have it.

                  Okay, I was reading a thread on Yelp just now (googled chilito and it came up) and as recently as January of this year, someone had a chilito at the GLENDORA location: 116 E. Route 66 Glendora, CA 91740 (626) 963-2616. I JUST CALLED AND THEY STILL HAVE THEM!! Sorry, had to yell! I think I will be going out there tonight - they are open til 11. The lady said that people drive from San Diego to get them. When I was in Illinois and found them last year, the girl at the drive thru told me the reason they have them is because that location was independently owned. I asked this lady if they are independently owned and she said they were. I am really excited!! ;-)

                    Sweet, thanks for the houndish sleuthing.

                    i will be making a pit stop there once i lose three more pounds, because after all i'll have to go to the nearby The Donut Man for those filled to the gills fork and knife peach donuts too.

                      Oh, I have been meaning to try the Donut Man. I just called and they are open 24 hours! - who knew? I will be stopping there after chilitios!! Thanks!

                  2. re: WildSwede

                    That was probably my post. Alas they have new owners at the El Monte location and they do not carry it as of 2 or 3 months ago. I would call first. I hope maybe they reinstated it, that is such a good thing.

                    1. re: Burger Boy

                      I went to the Glendora location last night (only 10 mins from my house!) and had two chilitos. They are around $1.39 each. Same deliciousness I remember - it was just as hard to eat as well. I had to keep turning it upside down so all the filling would not squirt out the bottom end - this happened to the first one but I was better with the second one. It is not on the menu. They do not do the Bell Beefer but they do make the Enchirito. I think I did see the Enchirito on menu, tho.
                      After that, I stopped at The Donut Man and ordered the strawberry donut (no peach ones that I saw) and a couple others. Ate the glazed twist on my ride home and it was delicious!! Their donuts are so much bigger than other places. Also, the glazed old fashioned was fantastic! Strawberry one will be for tonight. After The Donut Man, I stopped back in the drive thru at Taco Bell and ordered 4 more chilitos to take home. Two will be my lunch today (and I brought the Bavarian Cream donut to work as well). YUMMY!!

                        Just as long as you're eating "healthy"...that's all I care about. lol

                          Always!! ;-) Isn't it funny that the OP has not commented at all since posting?

                          1. re: WildSwede

                            The single issue posters never seem interested in anything beyond getting their "information", that's for sure.

                            If you like chili cheese burrito's I know that the Big Tomy's over here on my side of town does one and I figure that the original Tommy's http://www.originaltommys.com/ must be able to do it too?

                              Thanks, Sevorg. I know they do a breakfast burrito now, so they probably would do the burrito. I do love Tommy's!!

                              1. re: Servorg

                                What is the chili cheese burrito?

                                1. re: Burger Boy

                                  I have them do a burrito with chili, cheese and onions...and sometime I have them throw a tamal in there too. It's a mess, but it satisfies the body's need for grease.

                                2. re: Servorg

                                  Is Big Tomy's over on Pjco near the 405?

                              u are a houndish hero and legend.

                              btw. we're talking about the same thing, right? chili cheese burrito = chilito.???

                              1. re: kevin

                                Yes - it was originally called chilito and then they changed the name to chili cheese burrito. ;-)

                        2. re: WildSwede

                          I agree. The Chilito was amazing!

                    2. Wow, everybody, this is amazing!!! Thank you so much for all your investigating!! I'm going to have to make a trek to the Glendora location, but I might wait until this weekend because it's about an hour away from me. But it will be worth it!

                        If definitely is! Also, while there, go about a mile further east on Route 66 to Donut Man (on the left). His donuts are fantastic! Right now he is doing a monstrosity with fresh strawberries! YUM!!

                          remember, it's more of a fork and knife donut;.

                          1. re: kevin

                            Definitely! They give you the fork but you need to bring the knife.

                            1. re: WildSwede

                              Which Taco Bell makes Mexican Pizzas with black olives, green onions, tomatoes, and sour cream on top, and also puts a decent amount of sauce on top?
