Burritos

I’m sorry, but if you put together a list of the top Burritos in America, and Austin isn’t on your list, there’s a problem.

The list they put together looks great:

  • L’Patron in Chicago
  • Papalote Mexican Grill in San Francisco
  • The Shed in Sante Fe
  • La Taqueria in San Franciso
  • La Azteca Tortilleria in Los Angeles

But, if they cut the burrito in half when they serve it to you they’re doing it wrong.  Missing from the list in Austin:

  • Freebirds (made to order)
  • Cover 3 – the steak burrito is fantastic.  The queso inside the burrito is a bonus.
  • Torchy’s – the Ace of Spaces (arguable that it is a taco, but it is the size of a burrito)
  • Chuys – the Macho Burrito (pork and hatch green chile sauce, I’m there)
  • And don’t get me started with Tacos…

And that’s just scratching the surface.  Don’t mess with Texas.

    I can’t comment on any of the Business Insider picks, but I can vouch for the ones on your list Scott. I’d also add Mission Burrito in Houston Texas – http://www.missionburritos.com/. I’m a big fan of the original location on West Alabama. I also like Freebirds, but Mission Burrito is my pick for the best (of course the fact that I don’t get to eat there very often probably elevates it in my own mind). Dang, now my mouth is watering just thinking about it. I’m going to have to make a road trip to Houston soon :)
