If you’re looking to sink your teeth into a burrito, you probably don’t have to go far to find one — but is it the best burrito in town?
Eat This, Not That! knows that some restaurants are better than others, so the ultimate food content hub used feedback from locals and tourists to pinpoint the best spot to get a burrito in every state — and shared its findings on Thursday (November 11). The report notes:
"Burritos are a classic Mexican dish, invented over 100 years ago by Juan Méndez, a street vendor in Chihuahua, Mexico. There's a flavor combination to suit nearly everyone's taste buds, making burritos one of the most popular Mexican dishes. Plus, who doesn't love to heap on the toppings like guacamole, sour cream, and salsa? (That's a rhetorical question, of course.) And as much as we love huevos rancheros, some mornings, nothing beats a good breakfast burrito.”
So, which one stands out in Illinois? Eat This, Not That! says Maize Mexican Grill, located in Champaign, makes the best one. Here’s why it stands out:
“This small eatery doesn't have fancy decor, but it boasts the best burrito in the state. For just $7 you get your choice of carne asada, chicken, pastor, chorizo, or bean and cheese.
“’The food is excellent, always fresh and flavorful,’ wrote a local who frequently grabs food at one of Maize's two locations. Another frequent customer recommends the steak burrito with cilantro and onion. The restaurant also has a food truck that can be found at various locations throughout the week.”
