After intrepid eating and what we can only imagine was months of heartburn, the Herald’s Burrito Boy, Joshua Walovitch, has concluded his exhaustive search for Boston’s best burrito. He chowed down at big-name chains, family-run shops, and even gas stations. And what did he discover?
His favorite burrito is slung by Olecito Mexican Grill. To wit: “Savory chicken, fresh veggies, beans and spiced rice in perfect proportion. The roll job was stellar, producing a no-mess, crack-free delight.” Speaking of crack, we find Olecito’s shrimp tacos rather crack-like, too.
Boloco gets his nod as the area’s finest chain. Their classic Mexican was “an absolute joy. Rolled long and fat and filled with fresh ingredients, Boloco wraps ’ritos tight and right.” Funny, we heard our college dorm-mate utter that very same phrase once upon a time … ahem. Anyway! Sounds divine!
And finally, Sol Azteca gets props for the best “fork ‘n knife” burrito. ‘Tis true, sometimes you can’t shove a juicy missile into your piehole with hands alone. In this case, Boston’s best tortilla is bathed in a “sweet, tangy” sauce, encasing meat and cheese.
Oh, and Boston’s cheapest burrito? Taco Bell.
