Back on the Breakfast Burrito Beat

A's Burgers
28698 Camino Capistrano
San Juan Capistrano, CA 92675

Our quest to find the best breakfast burrito has brought us to A's Burgers. I have driven by A's for years, and never been. The small restaurant is kind of hidden by a Carl's Jr., and an In and Out Burger. I have been told that their hamburgers are really good, and I look forward to trying them in the future. Now though, I am on a mission to try their breakfast burrito.

A's Burgers has been around for a long time, and it shows. This is a no-frills burger joint. We got here at about 10 on a Sunday morning. They were busy, but very orderly. The girls at the counter took our order quickly, and by the time we sat down, our food was ready. Here is what the burrito looked like.

I had conflicting views about this burrito. On the positive side, the burrito was very tasty. The bacon was crisp, the potatoes had an almost buttery flavor to them, and the egg was done well. On the negative side, the cheese was almost non-existent, and the burrito lacked girth. I could have eaten two of these no problem. When I get a breakfast burrito, I want it to sustain me until dinner, and this was not the case here. The salsa that came with these was okay, but I preferred the Tapitio that was on the table.

So where does this breakfast burrito rate? It is good, but not drive out of my way twenty minutes good. Luckily I have gotten some good tips on other breakfast burrito places, and I look forward to trying these soon.

Out of five swallows, (no, not because we are in San Juan Capistrano, but because I could swallow this burrito in five bites), five being best to zero being worst, A's Burgers gets 2.5 swallows.

  1. Yeah, I hear ya on that 2.5 swallows ... it's just "ok" and largely forgettable. It's great if you're a trucker who had to pull over because you have flat and no other dining options. But, I wouldn't go out of my way to eat there again.

    Funny thing, when we were trying to locate this place late last year, Google Maps said it was located DIRECTLY on the 73 freeway overpass hundreds of feet in the air. So, needless to say we had a tough time finding it!

  2. Queerinmysoup - This place is in a weird locale that you would think would not be able to support three fast food places all in a row. But, I guesss people know about it, because they have been there for years. Thanks for the comment.

    1. Christopher - A's Burgers has two locations, this one, and the one you speak of in Dana Point. Here's their website. Thanks for taking the time to read the blog.
