If you've grown up in Garden Grove, how could you resist Los Sanchez? If this were a college town, Los Sanchez would be the number one spot for hungry college kids to go. Good food for good prices is not the only awesome thing about this place; the guy who calls out the orders has the most epic voice you could ever hear. He makes Los Sanchez what it is, haha. Anyhow, it had been a while since I had been to Los Sanchez so I made it a point to go after work one night. As always, they delivered huge portions for small prices.

Look at that burrito. That, my friends, is the "Works" burrito which is filled with succulent, peel-away pork carnitas and pieces of chicken. It has rice, it has beans, and it has delicious cheese. On the outside is what makes their burritos "wet," some mixture of red sauce and more cheese. This was actually the first time I've had the Works. I usually just get a wet carne asade burrito but the new choice was fantastic anyhow. What was great was that the meats themselves were just superb on their own. They were so tender in a melt-in-your-mouth way that is highly desirable in such slow-cooked meats. Great burrito.

The nachos supreme were indulgent but not mind-blowing. It was similar to the carne asada burrito I was used to except that there wasn't a tortilla skin but there were tortilla chips. Carne asada, refried beans, red sauce, and loads of cheese made up the nachos. Good but not great.

Of course, since the portions are enormous, I had to take leftovers back home for my teenage brother to demolish. Look at the size of the leftovers though. They were practically a meal in themselves. Well done Los Sanchez. You have over-sated me once again!
