5 Austin Burritos That Will Make Your Mouth Water

Austin might be better known as a taco town, but that doesn’t mean it’s the only tortilla trick up our sleeves… Bring on the burritos!

Burritos are another irreplaceable Tex-Mex staple for your culinary rotation. They come in all sorts of creative and delicious variations, usually filled with mouth-watering ingredients to satisfy any appetite.

Here are some of our picks for the biggest, boldest, best, and simply burrito-est burritos on the block.

We all know the power of a great food truck. But are you ready to face the uncanny deliciousness of Super Burrito??

Their two trucks serve up an out-of-this-world lineup of burritos that you need to taste to believe. Test your might against the San Diego burrito, a beast of a California burrito that draws its strength from the french fries that reside within it.

It may not actually be faster than a speeding bullet, but nothing hits the spot faster than a steaming burrito!

Wrap it up with:

The melted cheese-covered carne asada fries, then some hydration from the Water Tank or the Tiniest Bar in Texas.

What customers have said:

They nail the SoCal style of burrito if you’re craving a taste of Cali, or want to get in on the action for the first time.

Hope you’re hungry! Burritos are one of those foods where bigger just always seems to be better, and bigger/better is exactly what you get with the ATX Loop 1 Burrito at Cyclone Anaya’s.

The huge burrito takes carne guisada, smashed beans, pico de gallo, and Mexican cheese, rolls it up into a fresh, house-made flour tortilla, and douses it with chili con carne, jalapeños, guac, and two types of cheese.

If that doesn’t get your mouth watering, well… check again! It probably is.

Wrap it up with:

Their famous jumbo house margarita or any other drinks on the great happy hour menu, running weekdays 11am–6pm.

What customers have said:

Start enjoying your burrito in the restaurant and its awesome atmosphere, but you’ll probably have enough to take home for another meal! Cyclone Anaya’s is located in the Domain Northside, so enjoy access to great shopping after your meal!

At any of the three Austin Cabo Bob’s locations, you’ll find plenty of scrumptious specialty burritos to choose from, including a vegan option.

But the best burrito of all? The one you build yourself! 

Just step up to the counter, watch them make your tortilla right in front of you, and pick out whatever fresh ingredients your taste buds lead you to. Feeling like some melt-in-your-mouth brisket with flavorful Baja beans, poblano peppers, mango pico, house-shredded Monterrey Jack Cheese, and house-made 66 Red sauce, all wrapped in an ancho chili / cilantro tomatillo mixed tortilla? GO FOR IT.

Oh, and each affordably priced burrito is gigantic. We’re talking an absolute unit.

Wrap it up with:

Top-notch queso, to go along with any entree or their thick, fresh-made chips.

Korean—Mexican fusion. It’s the mashup you never knew existed, much less needed in your life.

But you’re luck! Chi’lantro has brought Korean BBQ-inspired Mexican dishes to Austin, not only via their original food truck, but six other brick-and-mortar locations as well.

At any of these spots, you can get a one-of-a-kind burrito with your choice of spicy pork, spicy chicken, soy-glazed chicken, tofu, or ribeye beef (the latter for an additional $1). Several locations even let you build your own, customized to your liking. With optional add-ons like kimchi, fried egg, queso, and “magic sauce,” you’ll get a bold and flavorful burrito experience you won’t believe you ever lived without.

Wrap it up with:

Kimchi fries, the signature item that Chi’lantro is deservedly famous for.

What customers have said:

The downtown food truck has wrapped up the kimchi fries in a tortilla for customers on request, making a mind-blowing best-of-all-worlds kimchi fries burrito!
