Holy molé! Our first visit to Burrito Parrilla Mexicana was so good, we had to go back.
Once you place an order, watch (through a large glass window) your food being prepared in a spotless kitchen and then grab a table. Your order is delivered posthaste by an ever smiling staff.
In addition to mandatory freshly-made guacamole, mild (4 on the MSM – Mark’s Sweat Meter) salsa and warm fried chips that started both visits, Laurie also ordered (and Mark tasted) authentic Tortilla Soup. We knew then that Burrito PM is the real deal.
For dinner, Laurie selected the ground beef burrito with Monterey Jack, lettuce and beans wrapped in a fresh flour tortilla and finished with guacamole and sour cream. On visit #2, Laurie’s choice was grilled steak fajitas – a “melt in your mouth” perfectly seasoned and broiled skirt steak.
On both visits, Mark came for tacos and tacos is what he ate – al pastor (sliced seasoned marinated pork off the spit), Carnitas, ground beef and, of course, Chorizo, aka “The King of All Sausage.” Pick your taco (corn or flour or both), “a fiesta in your mouth.”
And for dessert? We ordered both Flan and Churros – muy delicioso.
There are so many good things to say about Burrito Parrilla Mexicana – the great food, the friendly staff, the cleanliness of the restaurant, you need to go and check it out.
Located on Rt. 59th south of 111th Street, and recommended by Terri O’Hara, a fellow foodie and Laurie’s coworker at Edward Hospital, Burrito PM is one of two locations in what could become another Chipotle – it’s that good.
