A typical hole in the wall place, known for years by locals as somewhere for excellent Mexican food at good prices. The soft tacos are terrific, as are the burritos. When we were there this time, a really nice guy apologised profusely for running out...More

The bean taquitos topped with cheese and a dollop of guacamole and a side of tomatillo sauce were delicious. The veggie burrito wasn’t as good as Don Carlos in La Jolla. You can’t win ‘em all.

I have been going to Raul's for many years and it never dissapoints! Carne Asada burrito, 3 rolled tacos with guacamole and an Orange Bang. The best lunch!

This is my boys favorite Cali burrito location. Small shop, order at the window. Always fast and worth any wait you may have.
