Malibu Country Kitchen is a Malibu staple, and it is not what you may think. This place might be what some would call “a-hole-in-the-wall.” Not only that, but it stands out even more because it sits smack dab in Malibu town. Malibu is know around the world for its glitz, its glamour, its celebrities, its huge beachside mansions, and of course its pristine beaches. Somehow, all these years, Malibu Country Kitchen has survived as a bastion of hope for the common man in a sea of wealth.

What Makes it Great The menu is showing in one of those mix and match letter boards you will only find in an ironic way around Los Angeles these days. Their specials are hand scribbled on some pieces of scratch paper and taped onto the little window where you will order and pick up your food. Don’t let any of this fool you. All this does is keep those away that would scoff at eating at this kind of place. It is the best burrito in Malibu, hands down. Their breakfast burritos will leave anyone but an NFL lineman stuffed to the gills.

Grab something from the Country Kitchen before or after one of the many outdoor adventures you can find in Malibu, although after probably is the more prudent move. Helpful hint, this is the perfect meal for the surfers out there because of its close proximity to waves, just beware, the burrito is big, so be careful when you paddle out. It sits rather heavy. 

All jokes must now stop. This place is awesome. It is the last remaining home-town-shoot-em-up in Malibu but it may not last forever! The building that country kitchen has lived in for as long as anyone can remember was recently bought by a new owner. This means that Country Kitchens lease may soon run out as the rent as rent has been raised. Please come out support. It’s a win-win. You get some awesome, cheap food, and they get to stay open for another year. Don’t miss out!

Who is Going to Love It< You will love this place if you love all that is wonderful about the genre of restaurant that some know as the “American Greasy Spoon.” This means that it will not fit in at your average LA vegan spot, but it is an awesome place to stop along PCH. If you like supporting local business, this is your place!

Directions, Parking & Fees Located right in the heart of Malibu, this place is actually not very easy to find. It is tucked away in a little strip mall, with hardly any sign that is actually hidden behind a bunch of table umbrellas. Best way to find this place is using the address in the profile that accompanying piece. The place itself has a free parking lot right there and has no other associated fees besides the comparatively cheap price you will pay for you burrito or burger.
