Anyone that considers themself a burrito connoisseur, will tell you that burritos are serious business. For many, a burrito is simply lunch. But for others, a burrito is more: breakfast burritos provide a hearty morning meal, lunch wouldn’t be the same without a burrito, and of course who could live without burritos for dinner. Scores of blogs and minisites are dedicated to the fine art of ordering, eating and even making burritos.
So when we looked at the voting results for BEST Burrito across the country last year, it was hardly a surprise that the results were just a little more heated — or shall we say spicier — than a typical contest.
In the first of a series of “What Voters Love,” we feature local burrito businesses that captured our Voters hearts and appetites over the past year. We crunched the numbers and found that these 10 businesses had the highest percentage of votes in their category.
Without further ado, here are the Burrito places our Voters Loved:
Voter Mindy A. says: “The only great pastor I have had in Boston is at the Davis Sq. Anna’s store. The Chile Verde Pork is also amazing and authentic. Both easily equal their versions at the best taquerias in San Fran.( We did the crawl and proved it for ourselves.) No need to feel far from San. Fran. if you stick w/ Anna’s pastor at Davis Sq.”
Voter Jen B. says: “The carne asada burrito is the best – to die for! I can’t complain about the taquitos with guacamole and cheese, either.”
Voter John W. says: “I always order the Breakfast Burrito toasted on the grill. I eat half for breakfast and the other half for lunch…the burrito is huge and the best I’ve tried.”
Voter John Z. says: “My mouth is watering just thinking of the buffalo burrito…”
Voter divadavoo says: “Best Burrito in LA for sure! My favorite is the Burbank location. Check it out, you will not be disappointed. YUMMY YUMMY YUM!”
Voter Amanda R. says: “The Cantina has a great atmosphere for friends to sit around and enjoy a great meal. The margaritas are so delicious, especially the blood orange. All of the servers are super helpful when you are undecided on your options. Best nachos and green salsa in the philadelphia region, my favorite Mexican restaurant in the area”
Voter Rob D. says: “If you don’t have the appetite for the Manuel’s special, order the smaller Hollenbeck version. Best ever.”
Voter Teju R. says: “The best fast food burrito around by far especially if you’re vegetarian. Get the stir-fried veggies and a side of potatoes with some homemade hot sauce. Magnifique!”
Voter Ricardo J. says: “I can’t get enough of their food! Try the Holy Moly– best burrito I’ve had anywhere!”
Voter Christy L. says: “For a unique ‘multi-cultural’ version of the burrito, ask for the Chicken Adobo burrito! Garlic rice and chicken adobo with diced tomatoes. It’s a ‘Mexi-Pino’ delight! And the SALSA! BEST SALSA”
