At $2, you can’t beat Santiago’s breakfast burrito for a quick, nutritious inexpensive morning meal. The burritos come stuffed with eggs, potatoes and cheese, accompanied by their famous green chile (hot, half and half or mild). Each weekday Santiago’s features a different burrito, including ham, bacon, German sausage, chorizo and pork sausage. Vegetarian burritos are always available upon request.
For lunch and dinner the burritos win again—for $2 to $3 — hungry customers receive a bean, beef, chicken or carnita (pork) burrito that will barely fit on the plate. For an additional $1.25 you can smother it in delicious chile. Owners and managers, Martina and Ernesto Becerra said some couples split the large combo which includes a taco, tostada, cheese enchilada, bean burrito smothered with chile, tamale and beans and rice for only $9.
