Reviews 4.8/5

Josh M 5/5

We made the roughly 10 minute walk here from the Tesla supercharger for a quick bite and I cannot believe this place is vegan. We ordered the jackfruit carnitas tacos and I swear this tasted like slow cooked pork roast with all the traditional toppings. I’d really love the recipe for these "carnitas" so I can make them at home. The menu is plentiful for our next visit when we’re back in the area again. We’ll be back.

Ray Kay 5/5

For the life of me I cannot understand why this joint isn’t in a restaurant location of its own with a line around the block! The food is ridiculous, as in RIDICULOUSLY tasty! Don’t take my word for it though, just do yourself a favor and try it. They need to get out of this hidden food court (by the big Walmart) and unleash their gourmet extravaganza on the rest of San Diego now. Ridiculous!

Deniz Turkmen 5/5

Machaca was like a giant breakfast burrito with tofu scramble, jack fruit, peppers, and onions. It was cooked to order, and still hot right from the griddle. That charred-on-griddle flavor was nice, and the jackfruit has a chicken-like texture. Just add some hot sauce, and you have got yourself a meal or two.

Yiria y Jesus Fernandez 5/5

We got two burritos (fish-less and California) also the fries. The burritos are HUGE and they’re super tasty! Loved everything we bought. Just wish they opened more days. Whenever I think of the burrito they’re closed lol not a big problem, everything was delicious. Do recommend.

Milimar Campo 5/5

BEST VEGAN CALIFORNIA BURRITO!!!! I’ve tried several in San Diego and El Veganito takes the win! The taste is ON POINT! My husband and I couldn’t believe it was all vegan! The guys were also very nice! Don’t think about it, go try this place!!! You won’t regret it!!!
