Been here 3 times and I always liked it. Servings are filling. They give chips and salsa while you wait for your order.

I don't know if all of these restaurants are as bad as this one, but it was a bad experience. Ordered tosada and the tortilla was soggy and it was 90% lettuce. Also got a bean enchilada which had no flavor and a chicken taco. The taco did have a ton of meat. Overall wished I had gone somewhere else.

Whether you are part of not so secret 'EBJ' club (El Burrito Jr club) or just a fan of good, authentic Mexican food - You've arrived! EBJ has multiple locations - Torrance, Redondo Beach & Seal Beach. The locals know it and if you are in the area try it for yourself - the food is of excellent quality and... More

Best bean and cheese burritos. I've never had a bad thing here but bean and cheese burritos definitely take the cake here.

My kids love this place, typically fast service with good food. Good bang for the buck too. They will also take a reservation for a large group.

I love going to El Burrito Jr. The food is delicious and the price is right. They even offer take out if you're in a rush and/or need to pick something up on the way home. The staff is always friendly, the food is always delicious, and the price is always right.

We stopped by for lunch and decided to eat there. I have the feeling a lot of people order takeout so despite the fact there were not a lot of people sitting down the kitchen was probably busy. That said, it took too long to get a server to come to our table. Once we finally got to actually order,... More
