About 10 years ago, as a young apprentice, I thought Mrs. Garcia’s made the best vegetarian burritos in Los Angeles.  Perfectly made with a dense Mission-esque form.  Two locations (one on the border of Venice and Marina Del Rey), their salsas were always fresh, and the burritos were top-notch.  Now they’re down to one location, in Culver City, plagued with inconsistency, particularly at the salsa bar.  At times their verde is closer to an Indian chutney.  All that being said, the base recipes are still there, and every once in a while they churn out greatness.
