This is my favorite burrito from Baja Fresh. Actually, it is pretty much the only one I like. it has meat (chicken, steak, or pork carnitas). Monterey jack cheese, guacamole and salsa. Notice the lack of rice. Most times when you buy a burrito from a place such as this, they load it up with rice and go light on everything else. The best part about Baja Fresh is the salsa bar. Three different types of salsa, plus jalepenos, and cilantro that you can pile on as much as you want. It is why I like Baja Fresh better than Chipotle's. Since there is guac on them, they have a hefty amount of fat, plus the chips, which have even more, don't eat his every day. (the Steak one has 46g fat, 49g protein, 437 calories; the chicken one has 38g fat, 52g protien, 440 calories; the chips have 9g fat, 3g protein, 210 calories)
