Burrito Brothers was one of the first local restaurants that my friends brought me to when I loved here and I can't believe it's taken me so long to write a review for them. Their service has always been excellent, even when they were working in the back of a church. They are a tight crew and treat the customers... More

This is absolutely my favorite burrito place, and is a central part of any trip to Gainesville. No trip is ever complete without at least 2 visits. The new location is great, and they now serve beer!

Family of 6 went there on a Thursday night. Restaurant was difficult to find partly due to construction that had adjacent street closed. Once we found it, we were lucky to find parking. The restaurant looked like a sports bar. The staff was very friendly. The menu was as expected. We had burritos and tacos. Food was excellent. Prices was... More

And thank 8lb 7oz sweet baby Jesus for that! It kills me that their old location got torn down in the name of "progress", but the new shop offers craft beers to go along with their uniquely flavored burritos. I only mention burritos due to the fact that I had had my first encounter with B Bros 16 years ago,... More

BB was a staple during my college years. I was pleased to see the expanded menu and comfortable seating in the new location. My meal, as always, was perfect. Burrito Brothers does not disappoint!

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
