Best Burrito - 2012
Breakfast Burrito at Rooster Café
750 Saint Clair St.

The easy part in figuring out the best burrito in Orange County is narrowing the selection to breakfast burritos, which are not only the best type ever invented, but probably also the best food item invented. What makes the Rooster Café's breakfast burrito the best? First, it stretches the stomach; you can eat this thing at 9 in the morning and make it to dinner without going hungry. More important, though, is the perfect combination of eggs, hash-brown potatoes, bacon, grease and, for an extra fee, avocado slices. Contrary to what you might think, you do not want rice or beans in your breakfast burrito. Sprinkle liberally with pico de gallo or, better yet, Gringo Bandito hot sauce.
