I've been to El Pirrin several times now and they have one of the best al pastor burritos I've ever had. They also have great lunch specials for around $6. Their breakfast burritos are also above average. All in all a great spot to visit if you're in the area.

I worked nearby this year, and I have gone to El Pirrin at least 1x/week for the past year - this is pretty much the best Mexican food I have ever had! Their burritos (which are massive) are absolutely delicious, especially the carne asada burritos. The service is great - you can call ahead and they will have your food... More

You can order in English or Spanish and have a relaxing time. Neighborhood feels safe and they have a small parking lot in the back. Nice to eat outside under the sunshades. Staff come out to refill drinks and ask if anything else needed. Lunch specials of $6 brings in the office ladies as well as the construction guys. Inexpensive.
