Great burrito's

I wouldn't say the burrito's were spectacular, but at the same time, they were very tasty. The appealing aspect is not the special ingredients, because there was literally nothing more than a little lettuce, rice , chicken and a few beans. However, the seasoning is really good. The burrito's are... read more

My wife and I made a special visit to this restaurant when we were in Gainesville because I had heard good things from colleagues. I ordered the steak burrito and she ordered the chicken burrito. We also asked for a side of chips and salsa. And two fountain drinks. The bill was $27. Pretty high for a few burritos. First... More

I've been eating at Burrito Brothers since the late 80's. The Primo Beef Burritos are fantastic and are just as good now as they were back then. I'm sad that they don't ship burritos anymore, but I never go to Gainesville without stopping for a treat. The ice tea, chips, and sauce are great too. Can hardly wait for my... More

We stopped by Burrito Brothers for a quick lunch after visiting some of the museums in Gainesville. We ordered beef tacos and also chicken tacos. They appeared to be prepared with fresh ingredients and were not greasy at all. Everybody liked them but they were pretty plain. The salsa fresco and queso were both very good. Overall, the lunch was... More

I used to frequent BB back in the day when it was tiny and next door to Chinee Takee Outee. It's come a long way to the new location. Very modern. Craft beers on tap. Super fancy Coke machine. But the basic grub is still the same and still awesome. It's always a must-stop for me. Go Gators.

I got the chicken burrito and it was mostly rice and very little chicken. All I could taste is the same flavor, there was no tomatoes or "pico" to give it a better taste. I ordered the chips and guacamole and it was $5, when asked about salsa (what chips do not come with at least a small salsa) they... More

We decided to try this restuarant while driving through gainesville based on the fact that it received a positive rating for gluten-free dining. First of all, if you are driving, finding a parking place is next to impossible. Secondly, I ordered cheese enchiladas. If you are accustomed to a restuarant sized portion, this is a big dissappointment. It was a... More

Once located in a tiny little hole in the wall, walk in, walk out, (no seating) for years in University town, Gainesville, Florida. This place was a landmark for years. Then the building they were in was torn down. I thought they were gone forever. I just found out they have been operating and now have their own large building... More

I purchased a chicken burrito. It was great. Lettuce was fresh, Chicken nicely seasoned and the optional hot sauce was perfect. I will certainly return to this establishment.

You know what you are getting!! Love the new look! The food is the same, but they have added beer to their menu. It is a welcome addition.
