Early risers can enjoy the breakfast menu from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m., which provides sufficient sustenance before high noon duels with outlaw comptrollers.
- The quality of the food at Burrito Express makes it well worth the extra 10-minute travel time from the Caltech area to the northeast boundary of Bungalow Heaven. The restaurant’s been in Pasadena since 1978 (as have I) and (as do I) just gets better with age. – Erica Wayne, Pasadena Weekly
- Affordable and addictive, Burrito Express is a destination spot for customers in-the-know. – Linda Blake, Pasadena Living
