Luckily we don’t accept to alive like that.

Point being, the burrito is a admirable affair and in the all-inclusive fast aliment cosmos (and adjoining fast-casual and alternation restaurant multiverses), it’s apparently the atomic candy meal on any accustomed menu. Beans are about slow-cooked (the acceptable ones), over-processed and attenuated meats are about abandoned in favor of audible cuts of dank protein, the cheese is absolutely absolute cheese and not cheese artefact (looking at you, American cheese on burgers) and the salsa, aback good, is accepted to affectation a akin of ability and affliction that seems all but absent at the big chains.

It’s the best gourmet fast aliment can get.

Before we get into a baronial of the best burritos offered at the best accepted fast aliment and fast accidental restaurants, I’d like to booty the befalling to be “that guy” and admonish you that if you appetite a absolutely abundant burrito, you’re added acceptable to acquisition it at a baby bounded Mexican beanery than you are at a abode with a drive-thru. Support these businesses aback you can, please. Aback you can’t… well, that’s why you accept this ranking.

So actuality they are, the best fast aliment and fast-casual burritos around. And because they all charge the help, we’re activity to acquaint you how to accomplish them alike bigger by hacking the menu. Let’s get into it.

If you’re attractive for the blandest Mexican aliment in the fast aliment universe, attending no added than Baja Fresh. The Mexicano Burrito has about no redeemable qualities abreast from the tortilla, which I’ll accept is a cut aloft a lot of added tortillas on this list. It’s pliable, gummy, and broiled on the collapsed barbecue appropriate afore they blanket it for you, ensuring all your fillings are nice and warm, which is great, except this burrito doesn’t appear with cheese and a burrito after cheese is aloof sad.

There is a fair bit of customization here, which is good. Baja Fresh’s Mexicano burrito allows you to accept your protein but I’m apologetic to address that the chicken, carnitas, and steak are all abundantly dry, with the steak calmly actuality the affliction advantage acknowledgment to its fibrous texture.

Now admittedly, I’m not a big fish-in-my-burrito fan so I’ve never absolutely had Baja Fresh’s seafood, so maybe I’m actuality too adamantine on this burrito as the fast-casual alternation additionally offers Brittle Wahoo, Broiled Wahoo, and Shrimp. But as far as land-roaming proteins are concerned, they’re all defective in flavor, which is a botheration that extends to the beans and the rice. Baja Fresh’s beans accept a abundant texture, but about no flavor, and their Spanish rice — which they alarm “Baja Rice” for some acumen — is additionally bare of any apparent flavors. You anticipate you’re activity to get addendum of ablaze amazon and onion but instead, it’s all texture, which is to say, dry.

How To Accomplish It Better:

This is an accessible one, add cheese.

Generally, aback we run fast acceptable rankings we accumulate anniversary alternation to one access only, but we’re activity to accomplish an barring for Taco Bell because of its batty akin of popularity. I get that the Able-bodied Bristles Band Burrito has its berserk fans, but if you like food, run as far abroad from this as possible.

This affair is erect abhorrent and its bristles layers feel like a absolute absent befalling to accord us article decadently delicious. Instead, the Able-bodied Bristles Band combines all of Taco Bell’s affliction capacity into one anytime doughy burrito.

First, we accept the acrid acclimatized beef, which is so anointed it leaks orange, comatose on a bed of Taco Bell’s absolute dry delicate beans. Afresh Taco Bell aloof gives up with the blow of the layers, alms acerb cream, a acutely dispersed admixture of cheese, and a band of Nacho Cheese Booze advance beyond the tortilla, which is a nice abstraction that aliment a aisle of melty cheese amid every bite, but it doesn’t aftertaste good. So with bristles layers, Taco Bell absitively to bifold up on cheese, neither of which is good, and afresh aloof threw acerb chrism in there and alleged it a day. It’s an acrid alloy that you’re affected to aftertaste over and over afresh throughout the day as you burp it up.

Even your anatomy wants to adios this sh*t. Also, I accept a above ache with the name, yes the abridgement of absolute capacity gives added allowance for beef, but it’s not about as able-bodied as the photo would suggest. So you don’t absolutely get the faculty of bistro through bristles layers of acidity and it doesn’t bear on the beef.

How To Accomplish It Better:

Oh, area to start. Canal the nacho cheese booze and cheese for Taco Bell’s three cheese blend, add tomatoes, jalapeños, and onions, you know, absolute layers, and for beneath than two bucks added you’ve got a burrito that is at the atomic edible.

The Basal Line:

It’s accepted and it has an aperitive name, but that doesn’t beggarly you should eat it. This burrito requires so abundant customizing that you’re bigger off acclimation any of Taco Bell’s added burritos.

It pains me to see El Pollo Loco ranked so low, as I anticipate it’s one of the best Mexican-inspired fast aliment restaurants out there. That said, they’re aloof not abundant at authoritative burritos. While El Pollo Loco’s flame-grilled craven is abundant with its nice broiled arrangement and adorable citrus-y glaze, it can be appealing hit or miss, and aback it’s over-cooked and dry it’s about inedible.

Like Baja Fresh, El Pollo Loco has a appealing abundant tortilla, and the broiled arrangement is a nice blow that adds a adorable brittle mouthfeel, and I adulation the use of disconnected Monterey Jack cheese, it provides a abundant melt. But El Pollo Loco’s Spanish rice is one of its weakest card items. It has a abundant in your face tomato-forward flavor, but the arrangement is awful, it’s not fluffy, it’s dry and consistently uncooked. Couple that with the awe-inspiring admittance of banknote and the accomplished affair has an atramentous chapped arrangement that no bulk of acerb cream, broiled cheese, and red salsa can mask.

The highlight of the burrito is the slices of avocado and El Pollo Loco’s hardly ambrosial salsa, which they accomplish beginning centralized but on the off adventitious you get an overcooked breast of chicken, or an over/under developed avocado, or worse, both, the avocado and salsa aren’t acceptable abundant to accomplish this affair account acrimonious up.

How To Accomplish It Better:

Ditch the rice and the cabbage, they’re annihilation added than accompaniment and they add to the dryness. This ability complete crazy because I mentioned that it was a highlight, but we’re additionally activity to advance you canal the salsa roja for El Pollo Loco’s spicier avocado salsa. Is that too abundant avocado? There is no such thing. If you don’t appetite to bifold up on the avocado, grab the buttery chipotle bathrobe instead.

The Basal Line:

Yes, El Pollo Loco does accept burritos, but that doesn’t beggarly you should adjustment one. They’re too dry to be account your time.

I’ve lived best of my activity cerebration Baja Beginning and Rubio’s were the aforementioned affair but now that I’ve compared both burritos, I accept to accord the bend to Rubio’s. While not as customizable, Rubio’s instantly sets itself afar from Baja with the affection of its broiled chicken. It’s not the juiciest, but it’s not distractingly dry and has a abundant broiled acidity that you can absolutely taste, which convinces me it’s broiled on-site.

Rubio’s guacamole is additionally appealing solid, it has a nice antithesis of onion, garlic, lime, and alkali and tastes appreciably fresh. Because you’ve got arresting adhesive in the avocado, I don’t anticipate the citrus rice is all-important and would’ve adopted a added tomato-based Spanish rice. The burrito is additionally defective in cheese, which can be calmly added but we ambition we didn’t accept to.

How To Accomplish It Better:

You ability be acquainted a slight trend actuality but, canal the rice. The aggregate of citrus rice and the citrus in the guacamole adds a bit of a acerb association to this burrito. Sub out that citrus rice for Rubio’s Mexican rice and you’ve instantly got a better-tasting burrito.

I’d additionally advance subbing out the atramentous beans for Rubio’s pinto beans, which accept a audible fiery acidity that pairs altogether with cheese, which you should additionally add to this thing.

The Basal Line:

If you’re activity to go to one coastal-inspired fast-casual burrito spot, accept Rubio’s over Baja every time.

I’m activity to go beneath into the capacity with Qdoba than I did with the burritos above-mentioned it in this baronial because the card is absolutely customizable, and while Qdoba has some pre-made burritos, I’m activity to end up cogent you how to adapt it anyway. So in an accomplishment to additional a Qdoba agent from accepting to accord with you, I’m activity to advance you absolutely avoid the fast accidental chain’s pre-made burritos and alpha with the custom burrito.

My big botheration with Qdoba is that they accomplish an absolutely forgettable burrito. If you’ve been active your activity cerebration Chipotle is bland, I affiance you, try Qdoba, your apperception will be absolute by the abridgement of flavor. Accepting said that, the affection of capacity is a cogent footfall up from the burritos above-mentioned it, they aloof never absolutely appear calm in a way that’s harmonious.

With this burrito you accept the advantage of Broiled Adobo Chicken, Adobo Steak, Slow-Braised Pulled Pork, Acclimatized Arena beef, and alike Impossible meat, so go advanced and aces your adulteration but I’m activity to advance the new Cholula-doused Hot and Sweet chicken, which combines Cholula booze and honey and adds a accomplished lot of acidity to some contrarily banal meat. Afresh you’ve got your beans (black or pinto) and your cilantro adhesive rice, which isn’t about as acute as Chipotle’s rice, so for already I’m activity to advance you don’t skip it.

Qdoba’s salsas are great. For the aroma averse, I advance the Chile Blah Salsa which is balmy and added acclimatized blah than it is a salsa, but if you can handle the calefaction absolutely ask for the Salsa Verde or the Salsa Roja. If you’re not big on onions, do the Salsa Roja, it’s way spicier and absolutely brings some calefaction that excites the palate.

How To Accomplish It Better:

This is addition accessible one. You’re at Qdoba and the one affair they do alluringly is queso, so absolutely add that three-cheese queso to your burrito. It’s abominable and smokey with the aboriginal adumbration of aroma with a banal almost-velvety arrangement to it and instantly adds some complication to Qdoba’s absolute banal flavors.

Taco Bell’s best burrito is calmly the Burrito Supreme, which combines Taco Bell’s acrid acclimatized beef, cheese, tomatoes, onions, red sauce, beans, acerb cream, and bill into a acidity bomb. But instead of including that burrito, which I love, I’m activity to advance you grab the new Loaded Taco Chips because it does some of the customizing assignment for me and it’s about as acceptable as the Supreme. With a little customizing we’re activity to booty it to the abutting level, don’t worry.

Fries in a burrito are a admirable affair aback done right, and of the Loaded Taco Chips burritos I’ve had, it seems like Taco Bell can’t alloy this one up. Taco Bell’s adorable and brittle French chips deserve the acclaim for authoritative this so good, they’re brittle on the outside, befitting the burrito from accepting too doughy and accept a abundant acidity that combines onion powder, paprika, and salt.

The crisis doesn’t stop at the chips either, the burrito additionally contains red tortilla strips, which accord the burrito a abundant textured mouthfeel that keeps your bites crunching already you’ve burst through the apparent of the chips into the hot buttery inner. Like the Supreme, this burrito additionally has bill (which isn’t absolutely needed), tomatoes, a ambrosial agronomical sauce, cheese, and nacho cheese sauce.

Because Taco Bell basic to differentiate this burrito hardly from the Supreme, it suffers a bit, but already you bandy some of those Supreme capacity aback in, you’ll accept Taco Bell’s best burrito in your hands.

How To Accomplish It Better:

Always sub Taco Bell’s cheese for the three-cheese blend. Canal the Ambrosial Agronomical and sub in jalapeños, that’ll accord you a bigger faculty of aroma after the clamminess of the ranch. Forget about that nacho cheese booze too, it’s way too acrid and we’ve already got a acceptable accord of alkali from the fries, so in its abode add Taco Bell’s red booze to advice cement the flavors calm and keeps the capacity from actuality too dry.

The Basal Line:

Taco Bell’s best burrito aloof got bigger acknowledgment to the Bell bringing aback their off-and-on French fries. Get it while you can!

I absolutely basic Del Taco to win this one because if I had to advance one Mexican-inspired alternation to frequent, it would be this one. Del Taco apathetic cooks their beans and the aberration shows. They’re tender, fluffy, and able-bodied acclimatized with a mix of garlic, pepper, oregano, and cumin, the way beans should be.

In fact, Del Taco makes one of the best bean and cheese burritos in the fast aliment galaxy, but this isn’t a baronial of bean and cheese burritos so Del Taco’s blah meat offerings absolutely authority this one back.

You accept the best of broiled carne asada, marinated chicken, or Beyond meat. Go for the marinated chicken, it’s the juiciest of the three acknowledgment to the marinating action but its abridgement of acidity makes me catechism aloof what they’re marinating this with. Is it water? Because the craven offers mostly arrangement and annihilation else.

Rounding out this burrito is cilantro adhesive rice, guacamole (which is abundant but abundant on the tomatoes), and pico de gallo. What I adulation about Del Taco’s Epic band of burritos is the huge abrade tortilla, it’s absolute evocative of one of those ample taqueria burritos and the way the flavors approach appear the basal and bleed into the folds actualize a final chaw that is authentic ecstasy. This burrito finishes strong, which will abide itself to you and absolutely accomplish you advance a appetite for the thing.

But like all of the burritos in this ranking, it needs a little advice to booty it to the abutting level.

How To Accomplish It Better:

It needs cheese. Cheese, like beans, should automatically be included in every burrito. Rather than activity for Del Taco’s afresh disconnected cheddar (which is abundant and has a nice aciculate and absurd flavor) ask for the pepper jack cheese instead. It provides a bigger cook as it’s grated thicker, accouterment you with added cheese advantage and has a ambrosial bend to it.

Del Taco’s blooming booze is additionally adorable so absolutely add that and if you’re in charge of some added crunch, sub out that rice for some crinkle-cut fries.

The Basal Line:

Huge and aged with a able final chaw that lingers on the apperception as able-bodied as the palate. Some of fast food’s best beans can be begin at Del Taco. If you anticipate Del is aloof addition Taco Bell, you couldn’t be added wrong.

This burrito baronial gave me an alibi to expedition out to a Moe’s Southwestern for the aboriginal time. And alike admitting I’ve had the Homewrecker aloof once, it’s fabricated absolutely the consequence on me. Moe’s additive affection is in band with Qdoba but they remembered to absolutely add some acidity to their ingredients, which I appreciate.

For the Homewrecker, you’ve got a best amid white meat chicken, adobo chicken, arena beef, pork, tofu, or sirloin steak. I affective the white meat craven so I can’t allege on the added meats, but the craven was dank with a citrus-forward acidity and addendum of garlic and atramentous pepper. Instead of the cilantro-lime rice, Moe’s uses rice that’s acclimatized with what tastes like cumin and cayenne, abacus a added circuitous acidity that pairs accordingly with the citrus-marinated craven rather than clashes.

Moe’s Homewrecker additionally appearance atramentous beans, diced tomatoes, pico de Gallo, guacamole, a disconnected cheese blend, and disconnected lettuce. I booty affair with some of these ingredients. The guacamole, while good, appearance tomatoes in it, which I’ve consistently beheld as filler. Abundant guacamole doesn’t charge tomatoes, not to acknowledgment the burrito already comes with diced tomatoes and pico de gallo, which additionally has tomatoes! There are too abounding abuse tomatoes in this burrito and it weighs it bottomward and masks some of the added absorbing flavors.

Moe’s makes a point of advertence that their guacamole is included and doesn’t crave an up-charge. I never accepted bodies accusatory about guacamole costing extra, avocados are f*cking big-ticket and aback isn’t guacamole an upcharge? Answer: Aback it’s abounding with tomatoes, that’s when!

Sorry, bluster over.

How To Accomplish It Better:

Ditch those diced tomatoes and the pico de gallo! After the pico de gallo you’re missing some aroma which is calmly remedied by including Moe’s tomatillo salsa. It would’ve been nice to accept added salsa options but Moe’s added two, the El Guapo and the Kaiser, additionally affection diced tomatoes so unless you absolutely absolutely like tomatoes, the jalapeño-focused tomatillo is your alone respite.

The Basal Line:

Moe’s about has the best alternation restaurant burrito about but its attraction with tomatoes and abridgement of salsa options absolutely authority it aback from actuality absolutely great.

It’s adamantine for me to accept this, because alfresco of this fast aliment baronial I $.25 on Chipotle so about you’d anticipate I aloof ate… well, Chipotle. As addition who has developed up in Los Angeles, arguably the burrito basic of America, I’ve watched accompany and ancestors captivate over Chipotle aback for bisected the bulk they could get a abundant bigger burrito on absolutely every corner. But aback I absolutely breach it bottomward and anticipate about the alone flavors and the affection of the ingredients, I accept to say Chipotle is aloof operating at addition akin compared to its fast-casual and fast aliment competition.

Like Qdoba and Moe’s, the burritos actuality are customizable and anniversary of Chipotle’s protein offerings is good. The steak is dank with a abundant flame-grilled acidity and a arrangement bare of fibrous bits. The carnitas are breakable and able-bodied acclimatized and the barbacoa is alike better. But my admired Chipotle advantage is the chicken, which appearance aphotic meat cuts that accomplish the craven chiefly juicy. Of all the burritos on this ranking, Chipotle has the best meat, and the best craven by a mile.

Chipotle’s beans are fine, both the atramentous and pinto are breakable and buttery but I ambition Chipotle would go added on the seasoning. That’s annihilation salsa can’t antidote and anniversary of Chipotle’s salsas, which accommodate a balmy tomatillo-based blooming chili salsa (it’s abundant on the onions be warned), a ambrosial tomatillo red chili salsa, and pico de gallo are delicious, alms a lot of complication and heat. I additionally accept to accord acclaim to Chipotle’s guacamole, while abundant on the onions which accord it a bit of a bite, the admittance of jalapeños peppers and cilantro add a abundant abyss of acidity and spice. It’s allotment of what makes this guacamole so abuse addicting.

The weakest articulation on this burrito is Chipotle’s antic cilantro adhesive rice. By now it’s no abstruse that I anticipate best fast-casual and fast aliment Mexican-inspired eateries aloof don’t apperceive how to accomplish rice but Chipotle takes it to addition akin by including way added adhesive than any sane actuality can handle. Like Chipotle’s chips, the use of adhesive actuality is cutting unless you accept the aberrant admiration to eat a lime. Luckily you can skip the rice, and that will leave added allowance for a bigger wrap.

I additionally absolutely like Chipotle’s cheese, which is a alloy of Monterey Jack and white cheddar cheese. If they could bulk out a way to accomplish it melt, they ability accept article that rivals the bend taqueria.

How To Accomplish It Better:

I’ve apparent this time and time afresh and Chipotle, aloof because you accept the advantage to add all of these ingredients, it doesn’t beggarly you should. I adulation the customizable aspect of Chipotle, but that puts a little too abundant ability in the calmly of the customer and sometimes let’s face it, we don’t apperceive what we’re doing. That’s why were bistro at Chipotle in the aboriginal place.

Know what you want, what you need, and don’t try to accommodate it all. The aftermost affair you appetite is a burrito that avalanche afar while you’re bistro it. The added you apperceive about authoritative your own burrito, the bigger your aftereffect at Chipotle will be.

I advance you skip the rice or at atomic ask them to go ablaze on the allocation to accomplish allowance for some broiled peppers and corn. Rather than accepting your salsa in your burrito, ask for it on the ancillary this will acquiesce you to administer the absolute bulk to anniversary chaw and will accumulate your burrito from actuality a wet alloy that your burrito maker won’t be able to fold.

The Basal Line:

No, Chipotle isn’t as acceptable as your bounded taqueria but compared to all the added fast aliment and fast-casual options out there, they’re operating at a college level. If the bodies at Chipotle anytime bulk out a way to serve hot food, they’ll absolutely be able to attempt with the Mission-style burritos that aggressive them. Maybe.
