Burritos are a classic lunch dish because they’re simple. Really, anything can be a burrito as long as it’s wrapped in a tortilla (or in some cases, a type of seaweed).
To honour this great meal, Yelp provided INSIDER with data naming the best burrito place in every state across the US. Yelp did this by finding the restaurants and food trucks with the most highly-concentrated positive reviews mentioning the word “burrito.”
Without any further ado, here’s the best place to eat a burrito in every state.
