The Dish: Crazy Burrito the Size of a Chihuahua
When you venture out to the good ol' Willyburg, Brooklyn you'll no doubt come across the El Loco Burrito. What an insider tells us (insider being the guy who works at our fav chotchkee shop) is that of their three locations, el numero tres (El Loco Burrito III on Bushwick Ave.) is by far the best. Why? Who knows. What's important is they offer free delivery.
Try out their Chili Beef Burrito. This puppy (meaning puppy-sized) delight is packed with Mexican beef chili, long grain brown rice or Mexican rice, pinto or black beans, Monterey Jack Cheese, spices, pico de gallo and sour cream all wrapped in a spinach tortilla for a teensy $5.
Tips from a regular: Try black instead of pinto beans, lay off the sour cream, and if you can, go pick it up and eat immediately. While this may be one of the best burritos in the land, it tends to soggy up pretty quickly. And while this is by no means a dining establishment, watch soccer en espanol and grab a Corona for that truly East Burg/Bushwick experience. And tell them we said hi.
