I had been wanting to try this place for such a long time because I had heard so many good reviews and its a must spot if you're into Los Angeles history.
Located in Boyle Heights, El Tepeyac Cafe is an East Los Angeles landmark restaurant that has existed since 1952. Owned by the Rojas family it is known for its 5 pound burrito, called Manuel's special.
According to the official website El Tepeyac Cafe
its been featured nationally on the Travel Channel’s “Man vs. Food” has brought in new customers from all over the country to try and eat the Manuel’s Special Burrito – many have tried but few have succeeded. Currently, the honor of being named #23 of the Travel Channel’s 101 Best Chowdowns in America has brought renewed national attention
El Tepeyac has even been featured in shows such as TNT's Southland
Despite not ordering a burrito which is their specialty, the quesadilla was one of the best I've had. I sat in the outdoor patio to remember my favorite show of all time Southland!
