Best Burrito in Bend Oregon – Round 1


I just woke up from a three day Mexicoma (the sleepy state achieved after eating Mexican Cuisine) from my week long quest for the Best Burrito in Bend Oregon. This explains why I have not been able to post in a few days. Hey, that’s a better excuse than the truth.

I have said on more than one occasion that if I had to choose one type of food to eat for every meal, it would be Mexican. I love it. So for one week I did just that…for lunch. Although one night last week I made burritos at home. So last week I ate 6 burritos, two at home and 4 for lunch. Heaven, pure heaven.

So who serves up the Best Burrito in Bend Oregon you ask? No, I heard you ask. The answer is….I have no idea. I only tried four different ones and there are plenty more out there. What I do know is that in the past week I have consumed the Meat, Bean, and Cheese Burrito from Longboard Louie’s, the Deluxe Burrito from El Caporal West, the Al Pastor Burrito from Super Burrito, and the Pork Carnitas Burrito from Baja Fresh.

Is this enough to determine who has the Best Burrito in Bend Oregon? Nope, not at all. But I can tell you who my favorite of these four burritos is and why. On Friday I tried to get a Taco Stand Burrito because I know many people say that it’s their favorite but they were on vacation. So they lose by default in Round 1, maybe they’ll be back in round 2.

The winner is…

The Pork Carnitas Burrito from Baja Fresh. The flavor, the quantity, the quality of the pork, as well as the price makes this burrito the winner of round 1. The ranking of this week’s sampling of burritos goes as follows:

1 – Pork Carnitas Burrito from Baja Fresh
2 – Deluxe Burrito from
El Caporal West
3 – MBC from
Longboard Louie’s
4 – My Homemade Burritos
5 – Al Pastor Burrito from
Super Burrito

I have my own idea of who I’d like to review in the next round but please feel free to send in your favorites and I’ll try to work it in.

Try the carnitas burrito from Rigoberto’s, 97 and Revere. It’s pretty darn good. Maybe for round 2.

Taco Stand is my favorite, best bean,rice and cheese ever. Long boards breakfast burritos are super tasty. El Cap is the best sit down spot. Try thier perfect margarita.

Try Tacos Morales in Prineville (near Ray’s and Rite Aid) – machaca, chile verde supreme, or the chile relleno burrito – all of them are soooo good.

Who ever wrote this is a clear idiot who needs to go back to where ever they came from. Now!
