El Sitio has three locations in Santa Barbara. I assume they’re all pretty similar, but this review is about the one in a strip mall on De La Vina.

Burrito purists will love El Sitio. Their regular burrito has three ingredients:

  1. Mexican rice
  2. Refried beans
  3. Meat

But the splendid people of El Sitio make these ingredients incredibly tasty and add them in exactly the right proportions.

Oh and then they grill that fucking thing. The whole burrito. They just plop it on the grill, which cooks the fresh tortilla and lets the meat juices soak right into that rice. The final product is golden and tightly-wrapped—it was incredibly difficult not to scarf it down right there in the restaurant.

The meat could’ve been slightly higher quality, but the flavor was still amazing. Overall El Sitio makes crazy good burritos for a reasonable price.
