The Mega California Burrito from Sabor Taqueria y Mariscos in Oxnard, Califas, is made with “three large tortillas, generous portions of carne asada, beans, fries, grilled peppers, cheese, sour cream, guacamole and red sauce.” $25 feeds the whole family!

Why is it a “California burrito? It’s the San Diego-style fries inside.
