Wet burrito

El Pareja’s wet/mojado carne asada burrito with a rice and beans combination with salsa verde and melted white cheese on top along with a homemade lemonade with fresh lime.

Looking for authentic Mexican food? El Pareja’s, 28924 Greenspot Road in the Stater Bros. shopping center, is the place to go.

The restaurant opened last December and serves a variety of freshly made Mexican dishes including burritos (breakfast/regular/wet or mojado), breakfast, tacos, quesadillas, combination plate ($12.99) and more.

On a trip to the Highland location (there is another location in the city of Fontana on 14755 Foothill Blvd.) I had a wet/mojado carne asada burrito with rice and beans topped with salsa verde and melted white cheese, which cost $8.99. If you are not into spicy food, this item is not for you.

I also had homemade lemonade with a fresh lime.

The burrito had a very fresh taste to it, and it left me feeling full after the last bite.

I personally loved the salsa verde, that was placed around the burrito, which mixed together lit up my taste buds.

El Pareja sells meat for parties/events; they offer carnitas, cuero, carne, buche and chicharron for $12.99 a pound.

Handmade tortillas are $5.99 a dozen.

El Pareja is open for take-out, pick-up and dine-in service.

The dining room seats between 30 and 40 people with a simple table and chair setup along with Mexican music playing in the background.

The staff is friendly and very attentive to your dining needs. A staff member will bring your food to your table.

Their hours of operation Friday, Sunday, Monday and Wednesday from 8 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. and Thursday from 8 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.

Happy eating!
