This is an order-at-the-counter, watch-them-make-your-order kind of place, but the food is delicious and the prices are amazingly reasonable. Its a place my husband and I look forward to eating whenever our travels take us to Millbrae.

This is not your traditional " Mexican " restaurant. El Super Burrito makes the Largest Burritos on the peninsula, and for under $10.00 a person , you will leave full. Many make orders to go. There is a small seating area for those wishing to dine in.

This place is not much to look at, just a drab triangular building next to a busy street. The interior of the establishment is overly decorated with Mexican paraphernalia. The seating is similar to that of a fast food restaurant - plastic booths and tables fill one side of the room while on the other is a cafeteria-style burrito/taco making section where you can watch your food being made.

The food is made quickly (1-3 minutes), but if it's "rush hour" it takes longer. Rush hour is usually at lunch and dinner time, depending on if it's a weekday or weekend. Try a soft taco they're really good or try a Super or Happy Burrito you won't regret it. The portions are huge and the prices are cheap! Each order of burrito comes with complimentary chips and salsa. If you haven't before, try your burrito "wet-style", this is when they drench the burrito with a red chile sauce (not spicy) and top it with shredded cheese that melts sloppily on your burrito. For drinks, I recommend their agua fresca beverages: Horchata (usually rice based with cinnamon and sugar) or Tamarindo (tamarind and sugar) - it's definitely worth a try especially if you haven't had it before and it's really refreshing.

All kinds of people go there to eat, I usually see young couples and groups of friends, sometimes families. The place is pretty clean and parking is not a problem. Also, they have a menu for kids.

One small downside would be that the restrooms are located outside, so you have to walk to the back of the building. But that is overshadowed by their good food and cheap prices.
