Burrito bros - hard to find, but great food

burrito brothers has a limited menu, and poor seating options, but the food is really spectacular. This is not a great place for families, but as a couple or as a single, it is perfect.

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.

Okay, I ditched the usual Chipolte Mexican place just in the opposite corner to try something new..something diffrent... something that would make me say wow! I found a hidden gem.. Sorry not this place.. I ordered the beef burrito n upgraded it for .80 cents more to get the primo ingredients.. you know the best burrito money can buy.. but... More

I had eaten many times as a student at UF. I enjoyed lunch there and always very tasty. Price is great and the salsas very spicy. Thanks!

A Burrito Brothers fanatic since the "old days" it's a must stop the 1-2 times a year I get back to Gainesville. Love sitting outside in the courtyard and I was there the weekend before the expansion inside was finished. Best red sauce ever!

Great food at this UF tradition. My daughter (freshman at UF) took my son and I here for lunch. Very easy - order at the counter, pick it up and enjoy! all seating is outdoors at patio style tables. If its raining, I'd pick somewhere else as there wouldn't be a lot of cover.

It was oh so good! I got the primo and it was overstuffed! They are doing construction on the building but they are still open. You can park in the back or on the street. Can't wait to go back. The guacamole is the best I've ever had!!! Love it!

Burrito Brothers is a Gainesville institution, and they're hanging in there despite on-going construction upheaval. I tried their two-bean (black & pinto) burrito this week and it was every bit as good as I remembered. The GUAC sign was lit, and business was brisk. Cheap, filling, tasty--still a must-visit site for returning University of Florida alumni.
