Best Burrito?

So...The Daily Meal lists the burrito at Taco Surf as #10 in their Top 10 burritos in the U.S. Yea or Nay?


Alas, Sr. Nombre Falso, it would appear your beloved Super Sergios did not make the cut

      ;-) especially since a burrito from NYC - NYC for goodness sake - is in the Top 5

        Yes, I think the person who compiled it is totally and completely uneducated about burritos ;-). I also noticed the "Y" word on a lot of the places.

          Next up from The Daily Meal, Top 10 restaurant bathrooms in the U.S. Oh wait, the Superdiners already covered that one.

            Wow, #5. Could there be a more unappetizing photo? Looks like something rescued from a dumpster.

              I can't comment on the entire list but I've been to 2 of the places listed: Chile Pepper in Yuma and La Azteca Torterilla.

              Chile Pepper is god awful - just like everything in Yuma.

              La Azteca Torterilla however is legit. While the chile relleno burrito is very good I think the carne asada is better. The place really specializes in tortillas (no duh, right?) and making good burritos is almost like a happy accident.

                Broccoli in a burrito? Ew.

                  Taco Surf????!!!!!

                  What a joke of an article. One wonders how they managed to avoid the dozens of better options in San Diego. This author is making zero effort.
