In an area stuffed with quality Mexican restaurants, an eternal battle for best burrito ensues and this year, Michael’s Grill and Taqueria reigns supreme. With 13 burritos ranging from the vegetarian to the “house burrito” stuffed with shrimp and chicken and soaked with green tomatillo sauce, the menu boasts an ensemble as powerful as The Avengers. The blackened burrito, a fan favorite, features super tender Cajun seasoned chicken, salsa fresca, and rice wrapped in a flour tortilla and covered in a gravy-like red chile sauce. The crisp tortilla chips promptly work as a sidekick to these super burritos.
