Hi hounds!
I see SS get a lot of love here on the board, but haven't seen any specific recommendations on what to get. I'm going to be in the area tomorrow and would love to hear what your favorite thing to order is. I have been once before and tried the carnitas.They were super.
Thanks everyone.

    Carne Asada Burrito.

    I've heard they serve other things, but I've never ordered anything else.

      I just went there for the first time today. It was good. Got the Carne Asada Buritto, well built (according to Burrito Tectonics)and tasty, also tried the Carnitas taco which was good to excellent. The hot sauce was mild and Horchata was okay. Overall, in my opinion, 8.5+out of 10,

        It's easy on the wallet - try something different each time. I liked their Chile relleno and shrimp burritos as well, and the California burrito is just an extension of the carne asada so if that moves you, go for it.

        I know Yelp is Yelp, but a lot of people there seem to like their breakfast burrito.

        I agree with RocknB that their horchata and their salsas are not their strong point.

          I like their carne asada tacos plate, I think it's the Number 4.

            Costco Business Center and a Super Sergio's cheese quesadilla, bean tostada and a carne asada for DH.
            Perfect combo platter.


            I'm getting the choco taco this weekend.

                Tried it the other day! Carnitas tacos was good and sampled DH Carne Asada fries. Yummy. Hate that the menu is so big, it makes it so hard to decide!!

                  I've heard so much about SS over the years, and finally decided to give it a try.

                  Granted, carne asada is not something I will eat, and maybe that is the only thing worth eating. For my part, I tried a shrimp burrito,

                  Threw it away after two bites. Rice! Lots and lots of wet rice, laced with kind-a funky tasting grilled vegetables, and shrimpy shrimp few and far between.

                  I feel no sense of loss now that I know, Super Sergios is just not for me.

                    I've been looking at Chowhound for any mention of anyone getting a shrimp burrito from SS, and gosh darnit I can't find a single reference.

                    I know Chowhound is just not for me.

                      Although I'm of the opinion that if it's on the menu, it better be good. I find that ordering a marisco's option at SS would be my last choice.

                        It's a taco shope, not the French Laundry. Most of the food is not digestible.

                      I've never had carne asada but I would never order a shrimp burrito at a taco shop, unless it was a known marsicos place, like Marsicos German.
                      I'd give it another chance with a bean and cheese with some guac/sour..
                      Gualberto's next to Dennys across the 163 is really good if SS doesn't float your burrito boat...they have a radish/carrot bar with bags to load up..
                      : )

                        Jews who go to Midnight Mass on Christmas are likely to have a similar experience.

                          Oh, so now we are talking about Tamales... so good after coming back from Midnight Mass.

                    Casa del taco behind it is better, IMO
