If you look up the word behemoth, there’s a good chance that a picture of the breakfast burrito at Pepe’s in Orange County is right next to it. The infant-sized breakfast burrito at any of Pepe’s locations is a local legend, with those in the know vouching for its ability to make hunger cower in fear from its sheer size alone. But the reason we all keep coming back for it is because its deliciousness matches up with its hefty build.
Growing up in Orange County myself, I have fond memories of pulling up to Pepe’s and fully expecting the breakfast burritos to pummel my cravings into submission. It does it with a loaded array of breakfast goods like bacon, cheese, potatoes, and the spot’s signature green chili pork sauce.
Foodbeast Elie, continuing his epic breakfast burrito quest, also knows what time it is when it comes to Pepe’s, as it was his go-to back in high school. Catch the full circle feels here as he digs into the sausage breakfast burrito and the bacon breakfast burrito, both of which would rival the size of a football in his hands.
This leg of Elie’s intrepid breakfast burrito endeavor was fueled by sips of Java Monster Café Latte, so you know he staved off the itis effectively from the energizing sips. Stay tuned for the next installment of Elie’s on-going journey to find the most valid breakfast burrito!
