While some Mexican food restaurants have fancy and romantic names like El Farrolito or Taqueria Cancun, the people at El Super Burrito said, 'œFuck that! Let’s have our name tell people exactly what we do; we make big motherfucking burritos. That’s what we do!' It’d be like a clothing store being named Very Comfortable Cotton T-shirts (believe it or not, one of the world’s biggest telescopes is actually called the Very Large Telescope. These people can design a way to see light years away, yet can’t think of anything better than Very Large Telescope.). Despite the uncreative name though, the burritos here are good and yes, very big. The jumbo burrito is easily big enough for two people to split and it’s only $5.50. They also have all you can eat chips and salsa. But the decoration here takes the cake; they have so many Corona streamers and piñatas hung up that you would think it was a five year old kid named Corona’s birthday party.
