    Battle of the burritos?

    Calling all burrito fans: Which local chain makes your favorite wrap? Are you an Anna's purist? A Boloco loyalist? Do you drive 20 minutes out of your way to grab a Qdoba burrito? Why?

    What makes your favorite burrito the best?

    See what our burrito panel picked.

    As a tranplanted Southern Californian, Picante in Central Square gets my vote for best burrito. Authentic ingredients, a salsa bar to beat the mariachi band, and a tall, cool horchata to wash it all down with makes Picante the best burritto stop in the area.

    Boca Grande is my favorite (though I do love the tacos at El Charro). Their stuff is much better than this "review" suggests. Anna's is good, too, but overrated -- note the stunned amazement from the "experts" that they didn't pick Anna's, and the bit of rationalization at the end.

    However, I do agree you need to pick the right "roller" at any location.

    We need El Pelon on here.

    Anna's?� Get real.� Their burritos suck.� Coming from Burrito-heaven in the Bay Area, Anna's is liking eating a small hot dog.� Not at all good.� In fact, I refuse to go there and would prefer the corporate hacks over it any day.

    Bostonians wouldn't know a good burrito if it whacked them in the face.

    I used to be a fan of Boca Grande until there was a bug crawling out of my food.� That soured me on their food.� Plus, their chips and guac seemed to come from Costco....

    Well, BoLoCo, means Boston Local Company, so I consider it local.� Their burritos are good.� So are the ones from Felipes.

    I do like Qdoba if I'm mad hungry - they make huge burritos.

    But, alas, I miss La Burrita from the East Bay.� Cheap, big and good.

    You should know that Boloco used to be known as The Wrap.� It's like the pleather of burritos.

    If it's like Pleather then Anna's is like Alpo.

    Here Here.� This battle of burritos is for people who think salsa is from a jar.� Absolutely pedestrian.Actually, the best burrito in town is probably Herraras.� I love El Pelon, but Herraras is better.�

    I had Herrera's once...it was ok at best.� Not like El Pelon.� Apparently they are re-opened.� Time to go back tonight!

    Moe's Southwestern Grill has the best burrito's in the Worcester area.� I know it's outside of Boston, but I'd guess they could hold their own against any other restaurant in the state.

    The best burrito in Boston is definitely Herrera's.� Theingredients are fresh, the rice has a terrific flavor and consistency,the salsa, cheese, and sour cream are well distributed throughout theburrito, and the wrapping is always tight.� Plus, the service is fast and outstandingly friendly.� For an extra treat,try a glass of their tropical mix juice!

    Best lunchtime Burrito in Boston is hands down Herrera's (sp.).� I typically go to the cart on Washington St. and order the steak.� The portions, taste, price are all tremendous.� I dont know why someone would go to Boloco, Qdoba, or Chipolte when this burrito is available for the same price and served just as fast.� I'm not sure about authentic mexican restaurants in the area, but if a quick and tasty burrito for lunch is what your looking for, you cant beat Herreras.

    Regardless�of how you feel about Boston Local Company's burritos, don't�be too warm and fuzzy about their 'local'-ness.Winona (Chicago and Seattle) now owns the company, and their�honcho said in October:�Boloco is an excellent investment for us as we focus on expanding this compelling restaurant concept so it can reach a national scale,� stated Laird Koldyke, Managing Director of Winona Capital Management.If you also abhor/boycott/are nauseated by�corporate chains, take heed.In all fairness, though, I only order meatless ones, but I do like their burritos.

    Wow, that "tasting" was a total joke. Clearly none of your panelists have been south of Maryland and thus have never tasted real Mexican food.� Smashed beans? As if a "real burritto" comes with boiled pinto or black�beans... give me�a frickin' break. This was like eskimos evaluating Italian pastries ... no insight at all.

    Best burritos I've ever had were at Bueno Y Sano in Amherst, MA.� And I have been known to drive 2 hours out there (I used to be in school around there) to get one, with some other weak excuse to justify the trip for lunch.� Madness?� Probably, but a damn fine burrito.��

    I grew up in Cambridge and have been living in Los Angeles for the past four years. I really miss Boca Grande bean and cheese burritos -- you can't get anything like them in L.A. Best burrito in my opinion.

    I think that if you want a great burrito you need to step right outside and north of boston and order carnitas, not beef.� Taquria Mexico in Lynn is great as well as Monte's with the spicy carnitas.� I beleive that white rice is more authenitic then the died yellow rice.� Lupita has a great burrito as well

    Hasn't anyone been to East Boston for anything besides the airport?� You can get, hands down, the best burritos there.� Somerville is also an excellent place for authenticity.� But if you're looking for a great burrito, or anything authentic for that matter - check out Taco Mania on Meridian St. in Central Square, Eastie.� Amazing food, great prices.� They don't speak very much English in there but it all adds to the charm.� There's a few more awesome places nearby as well.� Definitely worth checking out!

    Re: Battle of the burritos?

    [QUOTE]If you want the best burrito you ever had you need to roll to Amherst and get a Bueno Y Sano Burrito. Everywhere I've gone I've tried to get a decent burrito and this place still beats them all. When I go back to visit I have to bring back about 6 burritos with me to satiate people's needs.

    I couldn't agree more.  It blows all of the Boston area burrito places out of the water.
    Check out their menu, its awesome...

    This makes me crave Burrito Max again, just when I thought I
    was moving on. This city has never been the same since Burrito
    Max closed. Ooh and an apple cripito for dessert!

    Viva Boca Grande!!!!

    A good burrito place melts the cheese with the tortilla steamer so ALL of those chain burrito places are out. 
    I go to Anna's only when I want a flavorless chicken burrito.  So I pretty much never go there. 
    The only two places that I have found who melt the cheese and flavors the chicken is Viva Burrito and my favorite Boca Grande.  Those who voted for Anna's really need to try out these 2 places.

    Highly Reccommended!!!
