Madison is home to many Mexican restaurants, grocery stores, and food trucks. But when it comes to burritos, a few spots stand out from the pack. Here are your picks for Madison’s best burritos.

El Rancho proved to be Madison’s fan-favorite spot for burritos. With two locations offering authentic Mexican cuisine, there’s something for just about everyone on the menu.

Location(s): 4527 Cottage Grove Rd; 819 S Park St.

Habanero’s first opened in 2007 with an emphasis on local and organic produce. The restaurant’s menu takes the Qdoba and Chipotle approach, meaning customers can customize their burritos (or bowls, or salads, etc.) to their heart’s content.

Location(s): 2933 N Sherman Ave; 2229 S Stoughton Rd.

Tapatios Cocina Mexicana in Fitchburg is the brick-and-mortar iteration of the local food cart Cali Fresh. Bonus: you can get containers of their homemade salsa to go.

Location(s): 2990 Cahill Main #100, Fitchburg

Looking For Something Different?

For those looking to spice things up, here are some less traditional options for burrito goodness. Tex Tubb's Taco Palace offers Austin-style tex-mex food; Finca Coffee has stellar Salvadoran food (and coffee); If you need more than just one meal, head to La Rosita Grocery Store and Taqueria; And if you’re looking for a breakfast burrito, check out Short Stack Eatery.
