My family has been eating at Burrito Express for over 10 years. We love the friendly staff, fast service and extremely tasty burittos. They are open for breakfast too. Try it, you'll like it!


I have had the great pleasure of growing up on Burrito Express and while my parents are still Pasadena I live in Brentwood. I make special trips to Pasadena just to get a JVC!!! You can not go wrong! All the food is wonderful and the service is great!!! I even order extras to keep in my freezer for those gotta have it moments!

Burrito Express has a bunch of signature burritos (e.g. a high carb Lance Ito, a three-meat Ross Perot). I went for the JVC, spicy with shredded beef. It was a large burrito with refried beans, tomato, lettuce, olives, onions, cilantro, sour cream, and guacamole, wrapped in multiple tortillas (because of its size). The ingredients were all there, and of high quality, but it was hard to find much flavor. A burrito isn't a watercress sandwich. I want it to grab me by the tongue and teach me a thing or two. This one was just a quiet and well-mannered lunch companion. I guess nobody goes to Pasadena for ethnic character.

It is a clean place on a nice corner with a couple of inside tables, and a lovely shaded patio. If I wanted to introduce some easily frightened friends to a sincere, wholesome burrito, this is where I would take them.

On first visit today i enjoyed very much a bean, cheese, and pork burrito...if this place becomes a habit and I try more stuff it may earn a 5 star but it was a good experience for sure .

love it, love it, love it! the food is all cooked in house (just look over the shoulder of the person taking your order and you'll see the food and salsas being cooked fresh right there. Unlike Taco Bell where food comes pre prepared in a bag (I worked there several years ago). I was reading the "PASADENA WEEKLY-BEST OF PASADENA 08" and guess who won best burrito category, again.
 Judge for yourself and check them out. I've been going for many years and will keep going for years to come.
