Note: Restaurants on this map are listed geographically.

Blue Collar

Copy Link
Why not start your morning with a nap? Blue Collar serves a fluffy breakfast burrito filled with scrambled eggs, chorizo, cheese and chipotle sour cream.

Approximate size: 3-week-old Basset Hound

Coyo Taco

Copy Link
Here's the deal at Coyo: you either go with the tacos (serving size is two) or you convert your tacos into a burrito (for only $3 more) and stop pretending you're "not that hungry." The varied sauce bar will make your decision that much easier.

Approximate size: Like Chipotle but fluffier.

El Rancho Grande Mexican Restaurant

Copy Link
Although Mexicans aren't the only ones who know how to whip up a good burrito, they might just be the best at it. El Rancho Grande prepares ten different kinds, stuffed with beef, chicken or chorizo and topped with either queso, green sauce or sour cream.

Approximate size: A grown man's forearm.

Huahua's Taqueria

Copy Link
The taco hype at Huahua's on South Beach is very real, and the burritos are quick to follow. Its picturesque fried chicken and carnitas tacos are both available in their burrito counterparts.

Approximate size: Two mini Cabbage Patch Kids.

I Love Tacos

Copy Link
Even if you don't love tacos, this Mexican joint's award-winning Wet Burrito* will win you over. It's prepared in a 12 inch flour tortilla with chipotle ground beef, Mexican cheese, rice, beans, and topped with the very special three cheese sauce.

*Silverware use suggested.
Approximate size: Two Shake Shack burgers, side by side.

Jacalito Taqueria Mexicana

Copy Link
Jacalito was named among USA Today's must-try dishes in Miami for its Al Pastor tacos. The burritos are equally authentic and free of fanciness, delivering simple (it's anything but, really) Mexican flavor.

Approximate size: Half-used roll of paper towels.

Latin House Sunset

Copy Link
Latin House may be known for its MadLove award winning burgers, but this Guy Fieri-approved joint serves a hefty Chimi burrito that can't be overlooked.

Approximate size: Ridiculous. You will not eat again for at least 18 hours.

My Ceviche

Copy Link
You wouldn't expect a ceviche restaurant to serve a good burrito, but don't forget you're in Miami, there are no rules here. My Ceviche's wild-caught seafood burritos are served in picture-perfect flour tortillas, you can choose from tuna, shrimp, octopus, mahi and even chicken.

Approximate serving size: The Rock's fist.

Whisk Gourmet

Copy Link
Yes, "Gourmet" could also be synonymous with Comfort Food. The Southern style burritos (they come in pairs) here are served sans side* because people are daring and think they can handle a two-person-serving, until Whisk proves them very, very wrong.

*A "half-order" gives you one, perhaps more reasonable, burrito. Approximate size: You will have leftovers.

A-Mari-Mix

Copy Link
Under all that cheese and sauce is what most people would recognize as a burrito. A Mari Mix's burritos all come filled with rice, refried pinto beans, cheese, lettuce, tomato, cilantro and homemade arbol (chili) sauce. For protein, choose between shredded chicken, ground meat, carnitas, steak, ropa vieja and shrimp. They are also served naked.

Approximate size: Fast for at least 12 hours prior.

Choices Cafe

Copy Link
Surely vegetarians can enjoy meat-less options from every place on this list, but what about vegans? Although the burritos at Choices Cafe may technically be wraps, we're including them for the sake of being vegan-friendly. Options include lentil meat, chickpea 'tuna', soy chorizo, cashew cheese and vegan mayo.

Approximate size: Like a normal burrito except vegan.

Tacos N Tattoos

Copy Link
The burrito options at Tacos and Tattoo are straightforward. The Chrome Jones is 1 1/2 pounds and the House Burrito is only 3/4 of a pound. Choose from surf & turf, churrasco or chicken and for an extra $2, make it a wet burrito with refried beans, guac and crema Mexicana.

Approximate size: Surprisingly modest. You'll be confused at how full you are.
