Several spots to grab a burrito to-go throughout the region

The burrito is a versatile handheld treat. Throw eggs in a tortilla and you can enjoy breakfast while on the run. Wrap up some meat, beans, rice, veggies and cheese to enjoy a full meal in the palm of your hands. Sure, Spokane might be a thousand miles north of the Mexican border. There’s still plenty of burritos to be found around town. Here are just some of the places you can choose from.


With multiple locations throughout the region, Atilano’s is the place to get cheap, delicious Mexcian eats any time of the day. Their giant burritos are packed with meat (or beans if you go with the veggie option), and you can pretty much find any style of beef, chicken, pork or fish your heart desires on the menu. Oh, and you can also order any breakfast burrito all day. 802 W. Francis Ave., 725 W. Third Ave., 3624 E. Sprague Ave., Facebook: Atilano’s


Mayra and Sergio De Leon have been providing the Inland Northwest fresh Mexican flavors since the mid-2000s with De Leon Foods grocery store and Sergio’s Tortillas. Since then, they’ve expanded by adding another grocery store and three restaurants. At De Leon’s Taco & Bar (locations on Spokane’s north side, South Hill and Gonzaga District), they have a huge variety of burrito options. Their specialties include the Baja Burrito, Rebel Burrito stuffed with french fries and Sergio’s Burrito — try it with pork chile verde smothered in enchilada sauce. 2718 E. 57th Ave., deleonstacoandbar.com, 381-5540


If you had a “fast food” joint like the Cheney Gerardo’s while in college, odds are you spent quite a bit of late nights in the drive-through line. Much like the burrito menu at Atilano’s, the options seem endless. Take your palate on a trip around the U.S. with the Arizona, California and Texano burritos. You can also find them on North Monroe in Spokane. 723 First St., Cheney, Facebook: Gerardo’s, 235-1192


Opening in 1996, Slick Rock has become a Spokane staple. You can choose from eight specialty burritos — like the Veggie Thai and Bar-B-Que Burrito — or you can build your own. They provide six house-made salsas with spice levels ranging from mild to “insanity.” Whatever you choose, might we suggest getting a side of peanut sauce and changing your life forever. 2926 S. Grand Blvd., slickrockburrito.com, 747-6041


Sweeto Burrito arrived in Spokane in 2016. The luchador-themed spot takes a unique approach to the wrap game with options like the All American, Break Neck, Buff Chick — each loaded with french fries or tater tots — or the titular Sweeto Burrito made with sweet pork and “Neato sauce.” Now, the small chain has locations in the Gonzaga District and Spokane Valley with more than a dozen others throughout the U.S. 15705 E. Broadway Ave., Spokane Valley, sweetoburrito.com, 928-9810


Spokane’s burrito newcomer opened earlier this year, just a couple months before the pandemic hit. But that certainly hasn’t stopped the tiny drive-through stand from making a big impact. They keep their burrito menu simple with three options: breakfast, lunch and the Vego Vado. If you’re looking for a suggestion on meat choice, try the Adovada pork. 1602 N. Ash St., tacovado.com, 420-5708
