From STAFF REPORTS Published on Monday, June 6, 2016 | 1:18 pm Burritos are one of the most popular Tex-Mex items on the menu.

In Spanish, a “burro” is a donkey, and “burrito,” the diminutive form, means “little donkey.” So what is burrito? Get back to the burrito’s California roots at El Patron. You can get a Classic Burrito with your choice of meat: Asada (Beef), Carnitas (Pork), Pastor (BBQ Pork), Pollo (Chicken) or Lenghua (Tongue) served with rice, pico de gallo, cheese & salsa, Burrito Banado/Wet Burrito with an addition of rice or simple vegetarian Rice, Beans & Cheese Burrito – no meat but loads of delicious cheese and beans.
