Which Mexican restaurants serve the best burritos in the land? According to the foodies in the field who report to the editors at the Daily Meal — the website that covers all things food and drink — 35 places go beyond the so-so and into the wow!

Naturally, California has a big presence with nine restaurants, including a bunch in San Francisco. Those are La Taqueria for its carnitas burrito (ranked No. 2; 2889 Mission St., 415-285-7117). The Papalote Mexican Grill for its carne asada burrito (No. 4, 3409 24th St., 415-970-8815, www.papalote-sf.com). La Tapatia in south S.F. for its al pastor burrito (No. 7, 411 Grand Ave., 650-589-5881, www.latapatiassf.com). El Farolito for its carne asada burrito (No. 11, 2779 Mission St., 415-824-7877). Taqueria Cancún for its wet vegetarian burrito (No. 18, 2288 Mission St., 415-252-9560).

The Daily Meal gives the top spot to La Azteca Tortilleria in Los Angeles for its chile relleno burrito, followed by Gordo Taqueria in Albany for its carnitas burrito (No. 6), La Perla Cocina Mexicana in San Diego for its carne asada burrito (No. 14), and Taqueria Los Charros in Mountain View for its carnitas burrito (No. 16).
