Are you kidding? You can't throw a rock in any direction from a given spot without hitting a Mexican restaurant. Mexicans were there long before Anglos.

I don't dislike those burritos, but don't fool myself into thinking they are actually Mexican. They are their own thing.
I do get them to give me a reasonable amount of rice, not the giant scoop of rice they want to put in them. Then they are less like a rice and bean wrap.
The fish is mute, expressionless. The fish doesn't think because the fish knows everything.
Probably better to forego the tortilla, aka fat disc, and just do a bowl. That way you can stir the ingredients for a more consistent distribution with every bite.
In lieu of the burrito place, see if you can find a local hole-in-the-wall Mexican joint that makes Al Pastor. That is some good eating there...

The best burrito rant on the internet. It always makes me smile when I read this, because in many cases, it’s absolutely true. Link to original burrito rant
The “lol” thread
We tried a place here called Panchero's
Three times we tried it three times they failed miserably .
They give you a fresh hot tortilla and three Luke warm ingredients and four ice cold ingredients choices.
So getting a piping hot nurreto is impossible.
I asked them to put it in the microwave for 2 minutes ,
They don't have a micro wave

That’s an epic rant!

I’m not a huge fan of those places but I do like that I get to watch them build it to my specifications so I can control what, and how much they put in my meal. I did eat at a similar place in Henderson NV a few weeks back called Cafe Rio that I enjoyed more than any other one I’ve tried. Maybe I got them on a good day or maybe I was just really hungry but I’m definitely going to give them a second visit next time I’m around one.
I’ll second (or third) the comments about some of the best Mexican restaurants being the shit looking little holes in the wall. They can be like BBQ joints in that regard. Same goes for taco trucks. I want the old beat up truck with the dude that barely speaks English and only takes cash. Those fancy food trucks that are popular now tend to try too hard for my liking. Unfortunately those aren’t easy to find everywhere.

I found out about that one a long, long time ago when I was a Junior Engineer in my first Electronic job.
People raved about a place called La Imperial so I went. It was a hole in the wall and they advertised a super burrito for $1.50. I figured it would be tiny, so I ordered 2. The waiter looked at me kind of funny, which should have been a tip off.
I ate half of one and took the rest home. They were great and HUGE.
Utah get me two.

Oh we have them here too. In a town nearby called Norristown, PA there is a large and growing Hispanic community over the past 20-25 years and it's actually been a good thing. They take the burned out, crumbling ghettos and revitalize them and where there had been boarded up falling down buildings and homes, there are now shops and restaurants and fixed up houses. We found out about a taco place there and went to find it:
1. Was INSIDE a Mexican grocery store
2. You had to go all the way to the REAR of the store and look for a small doorway
3. Once you went through the small doorway, it suddenly opened up into this large, busy Mexican restaurant
4. I joked to my wife "wow, we are the only two white people in this whole place!" and sure enough we were
5. Got stared down for a few seconds then everyone went back to eating and it was fine after that
6. The food was AMAZING, stuff I had never even heard of or seen before
7. They had big containers of various fruit agua frescas and two coolers full of sodas from all over Latin America that I had never even seen half of in my life
We now call it "that Speakeasy Mexican restaurant"
next you're gonna tell me that Subway isn't an authentic delicatessen!
for real, though, I long ago started ordering 2 tacos instead of one burrito. This meant smaller and easier to eat and I don't want the rice and it typically doesn't come on the tacos.
I'm gonna vote for the funniest frog with the loudest croak on the highest log.
