OC Weekly's Description
It's the sole Orange County outpost of a San Diego chain, one that capitalized on the Alberto's craze of the 1980s that left a slew of imitators from Otay Mesa to Anaheim featuring a similar design (the Alejandro's marquee keeps the dark yellow of its competitors, but uses a silhouette of Emiliano Zapata instead of a greaser caricature) and selling carne-asada fries, flying-saucer tostadas, the same watery red salsa and the California burrito, that glorious culinary immigrant of America's Finest City that finds French fries stuffed into the edible torpedo.
Tips from foursquare
Carne Asada fries
Ask for a Carne Asada burrito and order in Spanish. It makes the experience more authentic.
Go To Alejandro's Mexican food. Ask for a number 4 breakfast extra bacon, and potatoes!
The California Burrito is awesome. You can also substitute another type of meat or make it vegetarian if carne asada isn't your thing.
