Loved this place when at school and love it now. The menu is the same new location but still that old feel with the same type of kids working there as when I went to U.F. My 9 year old beg to go back 50 miles to get it for dinner when heading home, lol thank you for a taste... More

Got the chicken burrito and chips with salsa. Burritos were good as were the chips. Tortillas light and fresh. Must get the red sauce to go with the buritto and dip it. Salsa has too many onions. Only outside sitting available. $8 for a burrito. Staff could be more friendly.

Very casual hole in the wall type place tucked behind a church off the main street. We were sent there by someone local and she was right, the burritos here are great! You order at a little window and there are some tables to sit at on the patio. I liked that you could add different veggies and sauces to... More

Nothing too fancy here, order at teh window and eat outside from a brown paper sack. Good food, no complaints. Kinda place I like. Found this off trip advisor while we were driving back north after Spring Break. Glad we went here rather than one of those burger joints off the interstate.

These are by far Gainesville's best burritos! Anytime I'm in town, or just passing through, I have to stop for one of their primo bean burritos. Good price for outstanding food. The only problem is that their bathrooms are in a separate building and homeless people shelter themselves there. So when you go for lunch - plan to use the... More

A little tough to find, but the food was solid. Good guacamole, spicy chicken/chorizo burrito ((I agree, add guacamole or sour cream to it). Has that hole in wall / dive / good find vibe to it. You eat outside on metal picnic tables.

Went here because one of our group LOVES this place. The food was fine - nothing to complain about but not all that special. The staff is exceedingly pleasant and helpful.

My boys always insist that we go to Burrito Brothers whenever we are in Gainesville. These are the best burritos anywhere. Once again, we were not disappointed. The burritos are huge and tasty. It is definitely a diamond in the rough!

Our son goes to UF and took us to Burrito Brothers for dinner. As you can see from some of the other reviews, this is not a fancy place. Let's be honest, its the backyard of a small house-turned-kitchen. Its cement and hard packed dirt and some not-too-comfortable well-worn patio furniture. You order at the window and there is frequently... More

This place has yummy tacos and burritos. We were at UF and were told by several students that if we wanted awesome tacos that would be the place. The pulled pork is juicy, tender and very flavorful. It is a really great little hole in the wall, with patio seating. I'll definitely come back the next time I'm in Gainesville.
