Life with the Ramsings

Burrito Heaven


My love of Mexican food started at an early age. It was our first trip to California (I was 10) and Great-Uncle George had introduced us all to the New Mecca in Pittsburg, CA. Ever since I have compared every Mexican restaurant to my beloved favorite.

Growing up 20 minutes away from the most diverse town in the state of Iowa continued to reinforce my love for Mexican food. We often frequented Plaza Mexico after church.

When I moved to Oregon I continued to try Mexican restaurant after restaurant in hopes that one would live up to my childhood favorites. I was about to give up all hope when my husband came home exclaiming how amazing the burritos are at Burrito Heaven in Corvallis, Oregon. Our favorite item on the menu at Burrito Heaven is the small Chicken Burrito.

Nothing will ever replace the memories with Great-Uncle George eating the most amazing Mexican food on this planet. But I’ve sure found a place that makes missing eating Mexican food with him a little bit easier.




The tiles on the table are gorgeous (and so is my hubby)!


What your favorite Mexican restaurant?

    Allison, I too was introduced to the Mecca by George and looking forward to going again in his memory next time we are in town. Have known the family since 1970 and love them all. Think I met you many years ago at their house. Michelle and I have been best friends since we were in the 8th grade. Hope you and the family are doing well. God’s blessings to you. Karen Davis
