Lucky Boy Drive-In ~ 640 S. Arroyo Pkwy ~ Pasadena

I'd heard a lot of good things about this place, but never had the chance to try it out. I'm always skeptical of hyped-up "burger stands" since they usually don't make the best burgers in town... and I was right. The burgers at this joint are average, mediocre, so-so, just OK. However, while I was munching on my bland burger, everyone around me was smiling, laughing, and eating these huge burritos and I was like...damn I got the wrong thing again!

Breakfast Burrito (Veggie add avocado) (dinnertime)

So, being the persistent type, I came back and got the "famous breakfast burritos," which are served all day/night. In a word, they are amazing. These are the best breakfast burritos I've had in LA hands down (so far). Lots of nice touches that show they truly care about their craft, for example full on sausage links in the sausage burrito. Another standout is the veggie with avocado, and you can't go wrong with either the bacon or chorizo burritos. These things are monsters, get ready to share these with your family. Each burrito is enough food for two people but if you are hungover, hungry, a starving artist, bored, a competitive eater, or just love breakfast burritos...take one out yourself. But don't get the burgers, they're a complete a waste of money.
