When fries wind up in burritos, it can go one of two ways. Either the fries are drastically soggy and weigh the whole operation down, or they're the perfect golden, crispy additions to your handheld meal. At Electric Burrito on St. Marks, expect the latter. This counter-service spot's California burritos—like what you’d find at a stand in San Diego—use french fries in place of rice, but you can also order their Conga burritos which are just as noteworthy and come with beans, rice, crema, and your choice of protein. 

All of the burritos here are pretty solid, but be sure to prioritize a breakfast California burrito. It’s the kind of thing we find ourselves craving every morning, whether we had a few drinks the night before or just did a HIIT workout and need sustenance. The menu also has tacos with toppings like fermented cabbage and cotija cheese, and they’re all pretty solid—but stick with the burritos. You won’t regret it.
