So sad that Burrito Brothers is no longer with us. I have been eating here for over 30 years since it was just a little hole in the wall on 13th Street off of University. "Tempe Cambi," as Michael Corleone said.

Much to the dismay of alumni and residents, this restaurant succumbed to years of "progress" in its neighborhood. Many construction projects made access and parking impossible. Cancelled UF football games left revenue flattened. Many tears were shed as this Gainesville fave closed its doors for...More

Burrito Brothers was one of the first local restaurants that my friends brought me to when I loved here and I can't believe it's taken me so long to write a review for them. Their service has always been excellent, even when they were working...More

This is absolutely my favorite burrito place, and is a central part of any trip to Gainesville. No trip is ever complete without at least 2 visits. The new location is great, and they now serve beer!

BB was a staple during my college years. I was pleased to see the expanded menu and comfortable seating in the new location. My meal, as always, was perfect. Burrito Brothers does not disappoint!

Love , love their burritos and "red sauce". Not in love with the newest location. Too "establishment " setting/ atmosphere. It's lost it's uniqueness. Go for a really good burrito but sure glad I visited Burrito Brothers BEFORE they moved.
