Is Al & Bea’s bean and cheese the best burrito in town? We’re going to say yes. The 50-year-old Boyle Heights order-at-the-window spot is a classic. Head there on a Saturday afternoon and you’ll find the whole neighborhood hanging out - families, high school dates, local firemen, and everyone in between. You could certainly get a fried taco or a tostada and walk away thrilled, but there isn’t anything that should deter you from that simple but glorious burrito.
