They're Back!

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... read more

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

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.

Sure, those of us who remember the closet sized shop on NW 13th St. may have a twinge of nostalgia, but the new Burrito Bros. eatery is a definite step up. There are bathrooms! And seats! And local beers on tap from First Magnitude and Swamphead (as well as a delightful Cigar City cider)!!! But the important thing is, the... More

Burrito Brothers enjoys an inexplicable following based on a long tradition of offering (relatively) cheap, filling eats to starving students. OK to skip this one.
