Is there a more perfectly packaged meal than a burrito? With meat, beans, cheese, rice and salsa, each bite packs all of these flavors in a handy, portable tortilla. We can never quite figure out how to fold them at home, so best leave the burrito wrapping to these professionals.

"Best burrito by far - pork burritos at Los Cabos Grill. They are fresh, exquisitely seasoned, a complete meal inside and VERY large - yum yum!"

"Homemade tortillas, tasty marinated chicken, flavored pinto beans and light Mexican-flavored rice. Getting enchilada sauce poured over the top gives it the most flavor and keeps it moist the whole time."

"I like the mahi-mahi burrito. The fish is always prepared to perfection and you'll find that the fish and ingredients are well dispersed throughout the burrito. But the best part is their collection of salsas. You can pair the salsa you like best with your burrito and truly personalize it. I like to order a mahi-mahi burrito and Southwest Dinner Salad at Dos Coyotes (the salad is outstanding - great mixture of veggies). I can't finish all of it by myself."

"The Super Burrito at Jalisco's is the best burrito in Roseville. Anytime I get a craving, I pair it with Negro Modelo ... and instantly I'm in heaven. I don't know what they put in there, but the seasoning on the chicken has a great kick and if you're feeling fresh, try the green salsa."

"They have the best burritos because they are so delicious, fat and just perfect for me!"

"The best burrito in town is ... hands down, the super burrito from Cha-Cha's on Stanford Ranch Road!"

Carolina's Mexican Restaurant
1012 Douglas Blvd., Roseville
"Carolina's in Roseville is the best for a great-priced authentic burrito, 24/7. The California burrito is stuffed with savory seasoned carne asada and complemented with golden, good ol' crinkle cut french-fried potatoes. It's the American dream of a Mexican classic. Try it, you won't be disappointed ... just full!"
