$5.41 for a smaller than average BRC Burrito.


Sometimes the Wizard gives back. As a public service I checked out Los Tacos De Huecho for all the vegetarians out there (none of which probably live in Bakersfield; and they’d like to keep it that way).  I ordered a bean, rice and cheese burrito, but after one bite, I had to blow the rape whistle.  Stopping off in Bakersfield on my way up to San Francisco for a couple days of burrito bliss and couldn’t risk a burrito rape (see post in Ethos).  So I threw it in the trash after one or two bites of lardy refried beans, and after sampling their better than average salsa bar (featuring a nice extra thick and smooth guacamole sauce).  By the looks of things driving around town, there probably isn’t a decent vegetarian burrito in Bakersfield.

ROSA MARIA’S (2.5)

Rosa Maria's Sign

4202 N Sierra Way San Bernardino, CA 92407

Measurements: 8.5” circumference, 6.5” length (slightly smaller than average)

Bean Rice and Cheese Burrito: $4.70

This place is legendary in north San Bernardino and with Cal State University students. It was recommended on a general burrito site. Nice tortillas, lard in the refried beans, shredded yellow cheese, “dishwater” flavored hot sauce (didn’t care for). Charming… love the sign, NOT FOR VEGETARIANS!!!
