Welcome To Los Primos Cantina

Everyone has their favorite burrito spot. While on a flight to Sarasota, I met a local burrito expert we'll call, "Ray." And Ray was extremely passionate about burritos in his home town.

Well, aren't we all. But Ray had some serious conviction behind his words, so I went to go check it out.

Los Primos Cantina has two locations in Southern California, one in Costa Mesa (Map) and one in Huntington Beach (Map).

Unlike most spots I've hit in Los Angeles, Los Primos uses a steamer to heat its tortillas. That's key.

With Ray's recommendation, the steamer, and the decent sized line, I knew this was going to be good.

This is one of the places in OC that does everything right, though there are many similar chains, this one is the best. You simply cannot imagine how big that Mr. Serious is until you see it in person. Nice review. I have had a few things on their menu when I lived nearby, and was impressed almost every time.. (some of the black bean and rice filled burritos can get a bit "dry" for my personal taste, but thats nit picky with all the salsas and whatnot)

I love the Site - but you need some help in Chicago. How do I help you?

I live right around the corner from Adams site. We are very lucky (spoiled actually) to have such a great place in Surf City that serves authentic Mexican food.
I even take food to work for my team mates during weekend workdays. They all love it.
