Los Alfaros is known for its authentic Latin experience, quality service, and of course, it’s giant foods.
For those looking for a satisfying behemoth to break your fast, the 24-inch California Breakfast Burrito just may do the trick. This colossus is available on the restaurant’s breakfast menu — served from 8 to 10:30 a.m. Monday through Wednesday and 7:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. Thursday through Saturday.
Stuffed with scrambled eggs, crispy hash browns, onions, light sour cream, mozzarella cheese, and your choice of bacon, breakfast sausage, or Salvadoran Chorizo, this two-foot-long feast is enough to feed two to three people (or at least a handful of magazine staff members). The burrito also comes with six-ounce sides of white gravy and homemade tomato salsa.
The massive dish is a customer favorite with five already sold this morning when we picked ours up! Owner Pedro Alfaro says because of the popularity of the dish, they added the burrito to the dinner menu as well with chicken, steak, chorizo, and vegetables options.
If you’re looking for other supersized food, Los Alfaros offers a footlong taco — featured in the November/December issue of Evansville Living — which is specially fried using house-made tools and stuffed with your choice of meat, lettuce, tomatoes, French fries, and queso.
“Our customers love our big menu items,” says Alfaro. “Just this morning we had a family from Wisconsin come in and one ordered the burrito and the other order our giant taco and they both finished it in one sitting.”
You can dig into Los Alfaros’ large Latin cuisine at their location at 1021 S. Weinbach Ave., which is open for dine-in and carry out.
