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 good earlier this month. RIP, Burrito Bros.

Nothing but the fondest memories of Burrito Brothers. Been eating here for almost 30 years, I've been lucky. Lucky to eat the best food I've ever had at the place I love. Thanks and god bless.

I always enjoy Burrito Brothers Taco Company, but heard this week that they are closing as of Saturday, February 4, 2017. Wish they weren't going to close. Today the line was wrapped around the dining room, I think it was the same yesterday. The tacos are delicious, the sweet potato burrito is the only one I know of in Gainesville.

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 in the back of a church. They are a tight crew and treat the customers... 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!

Family of 6 went there on a Thursday night. Restaurant was difficult to find partly due to construction that had adjacent street closed. Once we found it, we were lucky to find parking. The restaurant looked like a sports bar. The staff was very friendly. The menu was as expected. We had burritos and tacos. Food was excellent. Prices was... More

And thank 8lb 7oz sweet baby Jesus for that! It kills me that their old location got torn down in the name of "progress", but the new shop offers craft beers to go along with their uniquely flavored burritos. I only mention burritos due to the fact that I had had my first encounter with B Bros 16 years ago,... More

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.

This place is a hollow shell of the deliciousness that it used to be. It's now simply living off of the legacy of what it once was... Alumns will continue to flock here to remember their past stomping grounds, but current students will wonder why anyone would pay $8+ for a lousy burrito. Very sad that a sacred institution like...
