Prime Time Money: Big Burrito Roundup

Big Burrito

The weather was just about perfect here today so Mrs. PT and I headed to the park with a couple of burritos from Freebirds. I consider them the original BIG burrito restaurant since I had my first one back in 1997 with them. Since, I’ve also fallen in love with the burritos at Chipotle. But today we went old school.  What’s your favorite big burrito restaurant?

  1. Hey thanks for the mention!
    Love Freebirds – I’ve been to the one in College Station a few times when I’ve visited one of our company stores there.

    I have two burrito restaurants here – Blue Coast Burrito and B.A. Burrito. I like Blue Coast better between the two, but I agree, Freebirds is #1!

    Thanks again,

  4. Love the big burritos. Chipotle and Qdoba are both great, and there is another franchise called Moe’s which is similar and pretty good.

    When I lived in west TX there was this little family owned joint called Alfredo’s which was awesome! (and open at 2am!).

    Also in the San Antonio and Houston areas there is a chain called Taqueria Arandas which has outstanding Mexican food.

    Thanks for the mention. :)

  5. @Patrick – I think I’ve been to Moe’s in Atlanta before. I’ll have to try it again. I’ll have to look up this Alfredo’s next time I head west.
