510 South Broadway Los Angeles, CA 90013

(213) 617-7058


Measurements: 9” circumference, 7” length (standard size)

Vegetarian Burrito = $5.83 after tax


El Huarache Veloz translated directly is the fast sandal, but is denoting huarache (their specialty dish).  Huaraches are oblong fried pieces of mesa with varied toppings, differing from sopes in shape only.


The vegetarian burrito is not on the menu, it consists of: re-fried pinto beans, Spanish rice w/ corn, peas, and carrots, grated cheese, lettuce, tomato, sliced avocado in a grilled tortilla.  Beans taste lard free, rice probably made with chicken stock.

No salsa bar.  Burrito comes with salsa verde: a light yet hearty mildly spiced and hearty perfect compliment to the burrito.  You can ask for the red sauce: a rich pastier spicy sauce that resembles enchelada sauce.


Three locations: Pacoima, Van Nuys and downtown on Broadway (I’ve only been to the downtown location).


Value: so so



WIZARD’S SCORE: 6.5
