In the mood for a superb, stuffed-to-the-brim burrito? Whether you’re looking for breakfast, a vegan option, or a burrito bowl, these Westchester spots have something for everyone.

Gran Rodeo

390 North Ave, New Rochelle; 914.633.9211

For this New Rochelle flavor hub, the question isn’t “does pineapple belong on pizza?” Instead, it is “does pineapple belong in a burrito?” You won’t have to ponder for long because, after one bite of the burrito al pastor, you will know that pineapple does, in fact, belong in a burrito. Made with marinated pork and pineapple, this burrito has the perfect sweet and savory blend and is neatly wrapped in a warm tortilla, ready to be devoured.

La Hacienda Meat & Grocery Market

1727 Central Park Ave, Yonkers; 914.685.3242

At this sparkling, one-stop shop for all things Latin, American, and otherwise, burritos are a reliable staple — and not to be missed. Brimming with fresh, home-cooked ingredients by the skilled hands of the Magana brothers, who believe that “food should be created with tradition in every flavor,” you’ll get a taste of the seasonings and spices they enjoyed as kids in Jalisco — and you’ll walk away happy, satisfied, and full of authentic homegrown nourishment and warm family vibes.

Scouring the Westchester map for some of the burrito OGs? Look no further because Mister Taco is New Rochelle’s hidden Mexican restaurant, owned and operated by the same family since 1981. Nothing beats the burrito classics at this family-owned affair. For just $3.75, you can buy the burrito de chorizo, served with beans, cheese, cilantro, and onion. Considering the delicious flavors (and inexpensive price), you won’t hesitate to get seconds.

Mount Kisco Diner

252 E Main St, Mt Kisco; 914.666.5676

Already have dinner plans? Start the day off right with a breakfast burrito jam-packed with scrambled eggs, peppers, cheese, and black beans wrapped in a grilled flour tortilla and served with sour cream and salsa or go a little spicier with chorizo and pepper jack with pico de gallo. (Heads up: Breakfast tacos are on the menu, too, and National Taco Day is in October, so plan accordingly.)

The Shop Ardsley

711 Saw Mill River Rd, Ardsley; 914.591.4321

This friendly mom-and-pop in the heart of downtown is not a Mexican restaurant, but it sure does Mexican favorites just right when the mood hits. Case in point: The roasted pulled pork burrito that’s stuffed with, white beans, basmati rice, lettuce, tomato, cucumber, jalapeño, red onion, ranch, and spicy green avocado sauce. Muy bueno, babies!

Sundance Kitchen & Cantina

208 Mamaroneck Ave, White Plains; 914.946.2300

Breakfast in a tube is on the menu here, featuring scrambled eggs, tomato, onions, jalapenos, chorizo, home fries, and cheese, along with a more classic burritos stuffed with choice of meat, all the fixings, and served in a tortilla or deconstructed style in a bowl. The crowd-pleaser is the mojado burrito, filled with meat, rice, beans, and cheese and topped with salsa roja or verde, lettuce, guacamole, sour cream, and pico de gallo.

Tomatillo

13 Cedar St, Dobbs Ferry; 914.478.2300

Boasting “farm-to-taco” ingredients sourced from Hudson Valley farmers, the same holds true for the dozen burritos in the lineup, including vegan and brunch-time brekkie types. However, “if you wrap all those wonderful ingredients in a rubbery, bleached tortilla, you might as well throw it away,” says owner David Starkey, who uses flaky, flavorful orbs of dough made with organic wheat, cassava root, water, avocado oil, and nothing more. He says his top burrito pick is the La Flor, which hugs roasted cauliflower, spinach, guac, cilantro pesto, jalapeno, and rice and beans because “when you slice it in half, you see all these beautiful colors,” with taste to match.

Truck

391 Old Post Rd, Bedford; 914.234.8900

Fresh, seasonal, and local ingredients fill the burritos at this former truck stop with a rustic-vintage vibe, where the Albuquerque-bred chef Nancy Roper and Mexico’s Fidel Garcia offer a bounty of burritos, including the one filled with grass-fed brisket that’s been drizzled with house-made barbecue sauce, piquant horseradish crema, and a spoon of the house-made guajillo sauce before being swaddled in an organic whole wheat tortilla. It’s then topped with TRUCK slaw and beluga lentils and served with organic cilantro rice and NYS-grown organic black beans.

VEGA

189 E Hartsdale Ave, Hartsdale; 914.723.0010

Any protein and/or veggie you crave can be tucked into one of Jeevan Pullan’s burritos, but the one not to miss is the birria beauty. A self-professed “lover of all things Mexican,” Pullan calls upon the spices of his native India, infusing ginger into the marinade, which lends a unique flavor to the shredded steak, as opposed to the more common brisket, short rib, or goat meat that usually comprises birria.

Westchester Taco Grill

712 North Ave, New Rochelle; 914.278.9865

A staple for Iona students, the choices for burritos here are staggering, from the classic La Fresca burrito with battered fried chicken and bacon to the California burrito stuffed steak and fries. The Veggin’ Out is pretty much exactly as it sounds (with quinoa adding a bit of bulk), but for something completely different, consider the Cheeseburger ‘Rito with ground beef, cheddar, and spicy sriracha ketchup. And for dessert, don’t miss the fried cheesecake burrito that’s served with ice cream. (Food for thought: Pair your rolled-up fave with a half-priced margarita or sangria Monday through Friday from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. and take National Burrito Day to a whole ‘nother place.)
