MVP’s Grill and Patio
MVP’s is a Long Beach staple, hands down. They are known for their burgers, cajun fries and fun menu item names (each item is named after a famous athlete). There are multiple locations in Long Beach but the one off Rodondo serves breakfast burritos, lucky us. These wrapped up breakfast presents that they serve are definitely plentiful for any athlete headed to their next game. They also work for people who perhaps ran hard the night before and need something with a little grease to get their day going. Many of the breakfast burritos pack double meat, making them the heartiest breakfast burrito you may come across.
