Palm Springs, where your pulse rate slows to 40 beats a minute while reading Raymond Chandler novels by the peanut shaped swimming pool. Clean air, 364.5 days of perfect weather and an attention to the simple things that shows through in the burritos at Guacamoles.

Pico de gallo, not too spicy, 20 minute parking in the shade. Print out the online coupon for 10% off.

Tere’s is great if you’re not a vegetarian.  But, the beans area REALLY LARDY.  Probably one of the best lard infused burritos in Los Angeles.  Burritos are served plated, so ask for it wrapped if you like it hand-style.  Salsa bar is above average.  You could probably figure out a way to order a burrito without beans, and somehow salvage this place, but at almost $8 for a burrito, why try?
