4-Pack. These burritos start with a handmade soft & chewy tortilla made with flour, butter, and salt that’s been called “the best flour tortilla in Southern California” by OC Weekly. They’re rolled up with birria de res (shredded beef slowly braised with chiles and spices) and cheese, before being crisped to golden brown and served with fresh tomato salsa. They’re on the small side, so be prepared to eat more than one. It’s not just a burrito; it’s one of LA’s most sought-after culinary experiences!
The Bañuelos Lugo family opened their first taqueria in the Mexican state of Zacatecas in 1980. They brought their unique brand of Zacatecan-style burritos to the Los Angeles area shortly thereafter, and since then Burritos La Palma has become a must-visit for Mexican food lovers, with their legendary birria burrito hailed by just about every LA food journalist (including the late, great Jonathan Gold) as one of the finest bites of food in all of Los Angeles.
