Best burritos

curbmarket.1217

YOUR PICKS
1. Bell Street Burritos
You say, “Bell Street Burritos is by a wide margin the best burrito joint, either in Mid or Downtown. The Pork and Green Chili burrito is my favorite and I usually can’t break from it. As mentioned the tamales are dynamite as well. The tomatillo salsa is a wonderful addition to any item on the menu. The fellows are always adding new items (lemonade, tamales, and milk shakes so far) but I can’t help but get that Pork and Green Chili, mmmmmm. Oh, and a mexican Coke to wash it down.”

2. Willy’s

5. Sheik Burritos and Kabobs

OUR PICKS
1. Bell Street Burritos
The AJC dining team’s Popular Eats specialist Jon Watson says, “Amid the explosion of burrito chains in Atlanta that began over a decade ago, Bell St. Burritos is one of the few local upstarts that stands out against the Moe’s and Chipotles of the world. Beginners should go straight for the pork and green chile grilled burrito.”

I have been in Atlanta for almost two years now and had given up on finding authentic Mexican food until last week I stumbled across a nice find..so far only burrito I have tried there was a Chili Relleno burrito but it was the real deal!!! reminded me of home :-) The place is Luptita’s on Canton Highway in North Marietta almost in Woodstock..

My favorite non-chain is Raging Burrito (I love the Cajun Killer burrito). Best chain has to be Willy’s.

It’s not a burrito, but it’s in a tortilla…. Taqueria Del Sol Veggie!

Any burrito at the raging burrito, my personal favs are the terriyaki, Bangkok and Pineapple Jerk

Bell Street — grilled version. Most Atlanta burrito joints wouldn’t last two weeks in CA/TX/AZ. Those of you nominating Moe’s and Willy’s are more deserving of sympathy than scorn.

Good to finally get this topic started, yes there are a shortage of REAL mexican food places. I haven’t tried Bell Street but this article got me thinking about it.

While I’m at it EL TACO VELOZ — That’s up Buford, just south of 285 — looks like a hole in the wall, matter of fact, it IS a hole in the wall but their burritos are fantastic. I haven’t found a single other place that makes their carne asada as tasteful and rich as they do. Get it with everything (and that’s only cilantro, onion and salsa verde) and it’s fantastic!! Plus it’s cheap compared to a lot of other places in town.

I can’t stress it enough — if you like authentic, give this place a try at least once!!

EL TACO VELOZ – Buford Hwy, just south of 285.

Bell Street. I never ate at Tortillas, and the whole thing seems a little cultish, but Bell Street has my favorite burritos, no contest.

Tacos La Villa in Smyrna on Cobb Pkwy. THE best burritos AND tacos for that matter. Real mexican food. No gimmicks, no “friend chicken tacos” or other bs fusion style tacos/burritos. The best meats you will find in Georgia.

El Taco Veloz and Don Pedro’s are both great and authentic. Willy’s is the best Americanized chain burrito, Moe’s just plain sucks.

El Taco Veloz. Carne asada burrito or bust. I get two when I make it there so I can have another the next day. Muy auténtico. I have been to three of the locations, but the website says there are more.

Taco Veloz and Willy’s. I love Willy’s homemade hot sauce, I believe it is made with piquin peppers. How many other places in Atlanta make their own hot sauce?!! Willy’s really get the California burrito perfectly. For a more Mexican tasting one, no one can touch Taco Veloz.

Barberito’s (a college favorite now available in ATL) and Bell St. Burrito.

I am shocked anyone would actually suggest Moe’s or Willy’s. Especially Moe’s. That is the worst possible place to get a burrito.
