Carson Daly Crowns SoCal’s Breakfast Burrito Champion!

If you’ve been listening to Carson in the morning for the past few days, then you’ve probably noticed that he’s had breakfast burritos on the brain!

For nearly a week, he’s been reaching out to you all in hopes of finding the most delicious one and we got tons of suggestions.

By far, there was one place that came the most highly-recommended…find out which restaurant came out on top!

And the winner is…Nick’s Deli in Seal Beach!

Okay, maybe it wasn’t that fair of a fight. We ended up buying burritos from only Nick’s and nowhere else, but we devoured our entire order in mere minutes!

Carson channeled his inner Top Chef and gave his own critique:

It’s one of those things where immediately, it’s unbelievable! Someone took the time on the cheddar cheese to do a fine grate on it…it melts so much better. The egg has been overly scrambled and in a good way. Also, I don’t like potato in my breakfast burrito and there are some potatoes in here, but it’s okay, it’s not over-potato-y.

Hear more about what Carson & Producer Angie had to say about the delicious breakfast:

    Tacos Villa Corona in Atwater Village is way better. Even Anthony Bourdain eats there. ;)

      Also, next time get it grilled, that means we take the burrito after its wrapped, put it back on the grill and the tortilla gets grilled or toasted. All the cheese and everything gets all melted, its an off the menu secret.
