Where can I find a good Bean & Cheese Burrito in the San Fernando Valley?
Been craving a good Bean & Cheese Burrito similar to Al & Beas in East LA. You guys have any good Recommendations?

  1. If you haven't tried Tacos Carona http://dineries.com/ca/vannuys/tacosc... on Balboa then that might be a good place to start and see what you think. Not up to Al & Bea's probably, but it scratches an itch when you don't want to drive over the hill.

      Thanks Servorg! Yes i love tacos corona. Never tried the bean & cheese there tho. I love their chilaquiles!

      1. re: Servorg

        1. re: kevin

              Risk is its own reward...

      2. Alberto's on Vanowen in Van Nuys has one of the best ones I have ever had. It is piping hot and they don't skimp on the cheese.

        As Servog mentioned, Tacos Corona is a solid choice. I have a soft spot for them because their refried beans are the closest in taste I have ever found to my great-grandmother's beans. It is a bit of a comfort food for me.

          I will def try Albertos Jelly71. I have only tried the rolled tacos. Thanks!

        2. I am not sure if it is like Al & Beas, but my most favorite bean and cheese burrito (with red enchilada sauce inside) is at Sabroso's in Reseda. Favorite since high school - still cannot find one better. Although, Alberto's (in Pasadena) does a good job, too.

            I could almost drive there right now in one hop skip and a jump.

                Yup, sorry - Winnetka!

                  No worries, =man.

                  I will be hitting it up shortly.

                  but should i go back to the counter if they are skipping out on the red sauce ?????????
