If you like your breakfast burritos MASSIVE, then look no further than Nate’s. Their gigantic breakfast burrito isn’t all about size either, it’s hefty in taste as well.
Not only do they put sunny side eggs in their burritos, their hash browns are the crunchiest little flavor morsels that synergize in a flavor explosion.
Their pastrami breakfast burrito with 2 sunny side up eggs is a great way to start the day. Albeit you might need to take a quick nap first.
Order ahead. The line can be insane and the parking is a bit small. And don’t forget the salsa!
