Love , love their burritos and "red sauce". Not in love with the newest location. Too "establishment " setting/ atmosphere. It's lost it's uniqueness. Go for a really good burrito but sure glad I visited Burrito Brothers BEFORE they moved.

This place is a hollow shell of the deliciousness that it used to be. It's now simply living off of the legacy of what it once was... Alumns will continue to flock here to remember their past stomping grounds, but current students will wonder why anyone would pay $8+ for a lousy burrito. Very sad that a sacred institution like...

Yes, the parking situation sucks, and there's no getting around that. Yes, you should always get your burrito double-wrapped, or else you'll probably be wearing some of it. But the flavor... just WOW. I've never had a better burrito (I recommend the Beef Primo) anywhere else, and every person I've ever introduced to the place has loved it too. A... More

This small restaurant just north of UF is a nice alternative to the usual American Mexican restaurants. They have a great selection of burritos, tacos, enchiladas with your choice of fillings. I had the pork which was a pulled pork with cabbage and tomatillo salsa. It was flavorful and not too saucy or greasy. The tortillas are not stiff and... More

When I attended UF in the 80s this was the place to go for cheap, but really good food. There was no room to eat and the line was out the door and down the block all the time. Over the years they have added to the menu and the prices have gone way up. The food is still good,... More

The prices have gone up, the back deck and serving window are closed and the food is just not as good as it used to be. The food is average, not bad, but not outstanding.

I've had much better burritos and the chips and salsa were also not so great. Everything is A la carte which would not be bad if it was over priced. AVOID this place.

Burrito Bros is a Gainesville, FL staple. The burritos are delicious but messy. The tortillas don't really stay together well at all.

I graduated from UF over a decade ago and meet back for a game each year. We stopped in at Burrito Brothers after watching a tremendous victory at the Swamp. It is nothing like the place when we went to school, a very nice space versus the quintessential hole in the wall it used to be. We tried to order... More

I've been coming here for nearly 30 years so I remember their original location as well as their spot in the church and their latest spot with beer and indoor seating. Great food. Get a primo beef burrito and a side of guac and chips. You won't be disappointed. Their beef tacos are good too. I think they're getting a... More
