La Azteca Tortilleria

La Azteca Tortilleria
4538 E Cesar E Chavez Ave
Los Angeles, CA 90022

You don't have to search long for a good burrito in Los Angeles.  Hell, go to an area with a large Mexican population and you'll find a good burrito within five minutes.  So, when a restaurant is suppose to have the best burrito in Los Angeles, it better be damn good!

LA Weekly rated the chile relleno burrito at La Azteca Tortilleria, the best burrito in LA.  Word of caution, in their Top 9, they included Al and Bea, where I was underwhelmed!

La Azteca Tortilleria, is located on a busy stretch of E Cesar Chavez Ave., which used to be Brooklyn Ave, before they renamed the street to honor Cesar Chavez.  It's a small restaurant, with about four tables and some counter seating.  It can get hot in there but they have a portable air conditioner that helps.

Chile relleno burrito, $6.50, Anaheim chile, cheese, tomatoes, in a flour tortilla.  La Azteca Tortilleria makes their own flour tortilla and it's great, really fresh.  The other ingredients were good and they sure give you a lot.  But, while good, not the best!

Service is good.  They are nice and friendly.

The chile relleno burrito is worth the $6.50 price tag and some people may not be able to finish the burrito.  But, it's not the best burrito in LA, though the tortilla is very good!
