Let's be honest with ourselves...Minneapolis/St.Paul is far from being a mecca for burritos. According to fivethirtyeight.com who conducted a massive burrito bracket a little while back that distinction belongs to San Francisco. See results here: https://fivethirtyeight.com/features...-best-burrito/

Unfortunately there wasn't a single Minnesota restaurant even worthy of making it to their final 64 bracket. So my question for you is this - Does the Twin Cities contain any establishment (brick and mortar or food truck) with a delicious burrito? Where can the absolute best one be found. And please don't say Chipotle.

Located on the first floor of Northstar Center (between Capella Tower and Wells Fargo Center) I've always liked the burittos you could get here...

I don't know many burrito places here, but I really like Catrina's in Oakdale (and I think they opened one in St. Anthony recently). It's like Chipotle, but way better and cheaper too.

Noone on here has actually mentioned the best burrito in Minneapolis. Taco Cat in Midtown Global Market. I've lived in the southwest and had Sonoran slop in Phoenix/Tucson and green chile in New Mexico/Colorado and mission burritos in San Francisco and all that and Taco Cat is the best, hands down imo. Andale in Richfield is awesome too. Open til 3am on some nights, but Taco Cat is the best.

Thanks for the suggestions thus far. I will check all of these out to see how they fare against the best. I have yet to find a go-to burrito in this market but I've had a few decent ones. A few I can think of off the top of my head are Pineda Tacos and a food truck across the street from the Cub Foods at 60th and Nicollet called Victor Hugo. They serve a unique and fairly tasty "Indurrito" at Hot Indian Foods at the Global Market. I had a good burrito once at Marissa's located right behind the Lake St Kmart. I'll throw a couple classic taquerias on the list too, Los Ocampo, La Hacienda and Taco Taxi. Finally if you're a hipster and believe a prerequisite to a good burrito is that it is sold in the dumpiest establishment possible than look no further than Taqueria El Ranchito in Richfield. Maybe we need to start our own Minnesota burrito bracket. We'll need more entries if we're going to get this thing up to 64 though....
