El Burrito by Mestizo
Just outside St. James Gardens, El Burrito serves crowd-pleasing burritos, tacos, quesadillas, and nachos to be washed down with fresh jugos or ice-cold Pacifico beer. The restaurant does a bustling trade and is designed for takeout or quick meals in the green-and-white, cafe-like space, which features a bar and fast-food-style banquettes. Tacos al pastor with marinated pork and pineapple and choriqueso alambres, which combines grilled chorizo, bacon, peppers, onion, and melted cheese in a corn or flour tortilla, are typical fare in this casual establishment.
