Having discovered El Burrito Junior while living in Lomita I had no idea there were more than ONE of them. Probably there was only one other at the time, but still. I guess the one on PCH was the original and the one in Lomita went up second. While I worked at Little Company of Mary hospital they began construction... More

I ate here on a recommendation from a friend. I thought it was average. They were busy but the service was a bit slow. The carnitas were good. Plenty of food for the price. The salsa was different from what I like. I will not be coming back. Too many other places to check out here in LA!

Good food, fast friendly service. They seemed to know a lot of the customers. Standard Mexican food options prepared well.

We have started coming here more often since the Family Run Acapulco Café on Carson Street closed down. The staff is always friendly and works hard to keep their customers happy. We greatly appreciate this. Great priced food and a nice selection on the menu. Our favorites are combo plates and the Shrimp tostada with a side of guacamole. YUM!

When I'm in town I always make it a point to stop in and get a bite to eat. Very good fresh food. tip, if you don't want to wait in line just order a bean and cheese burrito, they always keep some ready made, much faster.

There are three El b js near our house. We generally go there and get the 12 tacos. The fry the shell, fill it with meat, then grill it. Then they add the lettuce and cheese. There is much meat and it's very tasty. I prefer these tacos to tito tacos. My wife prefers the salsa at titos. All in... More
