The sign outside read El Indio since 1940, but after one taste of the carnitas burrito, I would vote for a name change to El Carnitas Nirvana. This Mexican food hot spot in San Diego had a lunch-time line coming out the door, and after one bite, I knew why.
We had seen El Indio featured on Food Network’s Diners, Drive-in and Dives, and the images alone made my mouth water, so while on vaca in America’s finest city, it was a must-eat destination for me and the boys. Tamales, burritos and taquitos…oh my, everything was amazing. El Indio is just a stone’s throw from the San Diego airport, so next time you are visiting or passing through; I strongly suggest a stop, a planned lay-over or even a re-scheduled flight to make your way to burrito bliss.
