The most eclectic crowd of any Mexican restaurant in the city Rodeo Grill is a Los Angeles treasure.  One of the “great” salsa bars (although it fluctuates heavily day-to-day).  The atmosphere is a combination of cafeteria, diner, taco stand, family “pizzeria”, and coffee shop, and is almost always crowded.  Sometime around 2004/ 2005 in the same gust of progress that wiped out the Pioneer market, both locations were remodeled and the prices nearly doubled.  No longer the best value in town, Rodeo Grill is still worth a visit.  

 

For vegetarians: I recommend the Quesadilla con Guacamole.  I know it’s not a burrito, but it allows you to enjoy their great pico de gallo and Verde sauce (get it from the salsa bar).  Their thick rich red sauce is worth a taste, although there’s no need to waste your time with the thin watery red sauce. 

 

The Veggie Burrito is made fajita style and varies depending on which version you choose.  It is served on a plate and not sure if it would hold up double wrapped in foil.

Value: Yes, as long as you take full advantage of the salsa bar and pico de gallo
