Ground Beef Burritos?

Hi. My friend is looking for a ground beef burrito. Not just any ground beef but seasoned ground beef. It seems that most places that serve ground beef do not season it as they do carne asada. Anyone have any recs for places around Pasadena? Thanks in advance!

  1. Del Taco and Taco Lita (in Arcadia)?

      Yeah, I already tried the Del Taco/Taco Bell, but the answer was Hell No. I cannot remember detecting any flavor in the meat from Taco Lita (but then I have only had the tacos). Maybe Taco Treat - I prefer their tacos over Taco Lita. Thanks,

          Well, if you are going to Taco Treat, you may as well order their deep-fried burrito.

            Yup, I usually get those (they are my favorite thing there) and their tacos. Their taquitos are pretty good, too.

      2. I DO NOT VOUCH FOR THIS PLACE:

        They have ground beef tacos and this is a common gringo mex place that's recommended on this board for ground beef tacos. I perused the menu and it seems that they distinguish between ground beef (aka beef) and carne asada (aka steak

        )

        I would call first and confirm.

        1. El Coyote on Beverly Blvd has one. They changed it a little adding more spices. Taco Bell.

          1. My DH had a ground beef burrito with red sauce and melted cheese at Casa Vega..
            It's been awhile and he asked if they could make him a burrito since they have the ground beef tacos on the menu.
            He said it was one of the best burritos.
            I love this place...call to make sure.

              Is Casa Vega still dark like a cave??

            2. Awesome! Thank you, everyone! I will let him know. He also used the words "old school". Thanks again!
