I’m conflicted — proud, but conflicted.
On one hand, one of San Diego’s tastiest burritos was ranked amongst the best in the country. On the other hand, ONLY ONE of San Diego’s burritos was ranked amongst the best in the country.
Our most sincere congratulations to Lolita’s Mexican Food for the 2-in-1 burrito being named to Food & Wine’s Best Burritos in the USA list.
The burrito: Carne asada, french fries, guacamole, cheddar, cotija and jack cheese with two crunchy taquitos wrapped in a flour tortilla is truly delicious and deserves to be ranked on this list.
Lolita’s founders Joaquin and Dolores (“Lolita”) Farfan have created a small Mexican food empire here in San Diego bringing with them more than 50 years of Mexican food experience.
Lolita’s is legit and distinctly San Diego. We all know this and Lolita’s fully deserves to make this list. Well-deserved to be sure. But clearly, San Diego’s long-standing burrito culture deserves more representation on this list.
No. 1 you ask? A burrito from New York. A wet burrito from Michigan came in at No. 5 and another from Idaho followed that at No. 6. And then two more burritos from New York rank on the list.
Am I overreacting? What say you?
