The prices have gone up, the back deck and serving window are closed and the food is just not as good as it used to be. The food is average, not bad, but not outstanding.

I've had much better burritos and the chips and salsa were also not so great. Everything is A la carte which would not be bad if it was over priced. AVOID this place.

Burrito Bros is a Gainesville, FL staple. The burritos are delicious but messy. The tortillas don't really stay together well at all.

I graduated from UF over a decade ago and meet back for a game each year. We stopped in at Burrito Brothers after watching a tremendous victory at the Swamp. It is nothing like the place when we went to school, a very nice space versus the quintessential hole in the wall it used to be. We tried to order... More

I've been coming here for nearly 30 years so I remember their original location as well as their spot in the church and their latest spot with beer and indoor seating. Great food. Get a primo beef burrito and a side of guac and chips. You won't be disappointed. Their beef tacos are good too. I think they're getting a... More

This was before the Gator game... the place was packed. It seemed to be on the ball though, until I received my food. I ordered a chicken burrito, when I opened the package it looked awesome. There was no chicken, the rice was spicy, I asked for double beans and sour cream and got neither. I had to return the... More

My wife and I made a special visit to this restaurant when we were in Gainesville because I had heard good things from colleagues. I ordered the steak burrito and she ordered the chicken burrito. We also asked for a side of chips and salsa. And two fountain drinks. The bill was $27. Pretty high for a few burritos. First... More

I wouldn't say the burrito's were spectacular, but at the same time, they were very tasty. The appealing aspect is not the special ingredients, because there was literally nothing more than a little lettuce, rice , chicken and a few beans. However, the seasoning is really good. The burrito's are ale carte, so if you want chips and salsa, it's... More

I've been eating at Burrito Brothers since the late 80's. The Primo Beef Burritos are fantastic and are just as good now as they were back then. I'm sad that they don't ship burritos anymore, but I never go to Gainesville without stopping for a treat. The ice tea, chips, and sauce are great too. Can hardly wait for my... More

We stopped by Burrito Brothers for a quick lunch after visiting some of the museums in Gainesville. We ordered beef tacos and also chicken tacos. They appeared to be prepared with fresh ingredients and were not greasy at all. Everybody liked them but they were pretty plain. The salsa fresco and queso were both very good. Overall, the lunch was... More
