Dos Toros is restaurant chain owned by two brothers originally from San Francisco.
What I like about this restaurant is the fact that their Burritos are prepared with fresh ingredients.
You can order the Carne Asada burrito for $8.50 or the Carnitas with grilled steak served with rice and beans for $8.
Add an extra $1 for guacamole in order to give more flavors to your burrito.
Dos Torros owns a number of restaurants in Manhattan and Brooklyn.

Korilla BBQ Truck
The Korilla BBQ is actually a food truck parked in various locations in the city.
Its particularity is that it’s not Mexican but Korean!!!
And yes, they are offering Korean burritos instead of Mexican ones 🙂
In fact, you can add classic ingredients like: chicken, pork, cheese, beef, rice and tofu if you are looking for a vegetarian option. What’s really original about it is the sauce.
You can pick one of the 5 sauces more or less spicy:
El Rey Del Taco Truck
El Rey Del Taco Truck is another food truck in New York.
The truck is located in the neighborhood of Astoria, Queens and even if it has taco mentioned on its name, the truck also serves excellent burritos.
The great tip here is its very attractive price. For $6, you have a burrito with different options including chorizo, pork tongue, al pastor and carne asada.
Although it’s a truck, this one is always parked at 3301 30th Avenue in Astoria, Queens.
Everything is generously served with beans and cheese.
The truck operates from 8 pm to 4 am.
Burrito Box is located at 885 9th avenue (between 57th and 58th streets) in the neighborhood of Hell’s Kitchen. The restaurant is rather small without much space to eat inside. On the other hand, it’s located steps away from Central Park, the best tip is to order your burrito to go and eat it on a Central Park bench 🙂
Regarding the burrito, I recommend the Chicken Ranchero made with rice, chicken, cheese with some delicious sour cream ($8.45), or the Burrito Chili Con Carne ($8.45) which is spicier, but very good.
They also offer vegetarian burritos with tofu, spinach or mushrooms. Other options are Wraps, Nachos, Quesadillas, Tacos, salads and more. Anything to make you think that you are in Mexico 🙂
