Best burrito and nachos in town!!! – I always order the espresso burrito, its a burrito topped with enchilada sauce, avacado, and cheese. The burrito is so big and filling that I eat it in two meals. They also give you chips with it, which makes you even fuller. I like to use the chips to scoop out the filling. You need to eat the burrito with a knife and fork. They also make the best chips in town, nice thick, like kettle chips. They're nachos are also very good too, same chips, and sprinkle the cheese on top of the chips and broil the whole thing. It is also very cheap too, less than $6 for a burrito or nacho.

Really no better burrito place – Somehow something gets messed up between the Taraval and Davisadero versions, the Taraval is much better. Good meaty portions of carnitas (not overly fried) --- the chile colorado EXPRESSO burrito is good, wet and will knock you out for two days -- and the surf 'n' turf is worth the 7+ bucks. I'll never understand what's so hard about a burrito but so many places get it wrong and el B. E. just gets it right.

Unassuming, simple, and delicious – El Burrito Express steak burritos stand a head and shoulders above any other I've had in the city. I can't fully explain why - there are fresher ingredients and more exotic options at places like Pancho Villa, and you probably wouldn't visit El Burrito Express for the atmosphere.

But for a classic, large, delicious burrito with everything you want and nothing you don't, hit up EBE.

The best burritos in the Sunset besides Gordo's – This is primarily a burrito take-out place with 3-4 window counter stools for dining. My family like the large burritos (super burritos are even bigger!) and chicken quesadilla (no sauce). You can substitute black instead of pinto beans in the burritos. The enchilada is ok but the beef tamale is better. They slop on a lot of red sauce with the enchilada combo dinner, which is quite messy. You get a sm plastic bag of delicious crispy tortilla chips w/your burrito. I agree w/a previous review that the taquerias and Mexican restaurants in the Mission are better, but for the Sunset, this is probably the only place for a decent burrito. It's popular in the evenings around dinner time & the burritos are their biggest seller. My favorite is the specialty burrito, Surf n' Turf with steak and whole grilled shrimp (lots of it). It's so big, I can only eat 1/2 of it for a meal.

overrated burrito – Burrito was average. Not bad, but not great either. I've had better burrito's in the Mission. However, I also had the tamales and they were great. They were topped with cheese and some red sauce (ranchero?) and was quite tasty. I'd recommend coming here for the tamales and skipping the burritos.

Very Good! – The burritos are delicious! I would recommend having the surf and turf, it's prawns and beef, and it's very good!

Yummy burritos! – Since there is a severe lack of taquerias in the sunset, I was hopeful that this would be a good one! And it was! Though I did see a few seats at a bar, I think it's mostly take-away. I had a shrimp burrito which was quite tasty, though I had to order it specially, since it's not on the menu. My roomie had a carnitas wet burrito and he loved it. Next time I will try the fish tacos. I would definitely go here again.
