Update 2022: Unfortunate this restaurant is no longer in operation and in fact the building was lost and destroyed because of the increase of expensive housing apartments.
I found another great best value lunch, Mondo Burrito, in Santa Clara. When you walk in the door - you may choose what you want to eat and tell the "Burrito Makers." You will watch them make your burrito while you choose the ingredients.
Mention "Mondo mucho," you will receive all of the extras at a special low price. Burritos may be ordered by size - small or mondo - and they offer a choice of tortillas. I like their whole wheat flour tortillas. There is a choice of burritos:
- Mondo meato
- Mondo beano
- Mondo veggo
- Mondo fisho
Or if you don't want a tortilla - just say "Mondo no wrappo" and you will receive a plate of ingredients and two small corn or flour tortillas on the side.
Although I love to get Burritos, they do have other menu items like nachos, soft and crispy tacos, taquitos, tamales, enchiladas, and tostada salads. Most of these items are included with combination plates. They make their own tortilla chips fresh several times a day and have 4 fresh salsas available.
I frequently get a Mondo Burrito for lunch or a take home burrito, this is a great place to go for lunch and dinner. I enjoy sitting on the large patio and they do have a bar which serves beer, wine and margaritas. Tip for best values - choose their daily specials.
Mondo Burrito is open Monday - Friday from 11 a.m. - 9 p.m. and Saturdays 11:30 a.m. - 8 p.m. They are in close proximity to Santa Clara University on The Alameda & Benton.
