Scrumptious Pork Taco, Homemade Guac

Dear Executives of Chipotle and Qdoba,

I would like you to visit the mecca of burrito places, Burrito Brothers in Gainesville, FL.  Granted, this little place was the site of many of my meals throughout my treasured years at the University of Florida, but it is a truly special hole-in-the-wall that shouldn’t be missed. 

What’s so special about this place?  What can you, Mr. Chipotle learn here?  For one thing, its been around since you were probably a kid (I was only one year old when it opened).  Everything they serve is made from scratch (except the tortillas).  They even ripen their own Haas avocados to make sure you only get THE BEST guacamole!   In fact, they don’t always have guac – if there aren’t ripe avocados available they simply won’t serve it.  Their ingredients are of the freshest quality, which comes through.  The outdoor seating is lovely – shaded by trees and so comfortable, it beats your overly airconditioned/freezing indoor boringness.  They also have more interesting food than you do – chorizo and chicken is one of my all time favs as well as the jicama slaw.  Finally, what makes them even more extraordinary are the sauces they serve alongside.  They are so good, I nearly drown my burrito in them.

Mr.  Exec, your food is okay and I’m a regular patron because I like burritos and appreciate your efforts.  BUT you should go see them, there is much more to learn and Burrito Brothers eats YOUR lunch! 

Sincerely,

Burrito Lover Beasley
