The Burrito Factory in Dobie Mall is a hidden gem. Their tacos and burritos are affordable and delicious.
My regular order for lunch is two tacos al pastor on corn tortillas with cheese, cilantro, lettuce, onions, sour cream, and avocado. The enthusiastic cook will assemble your meal right in front of you, as you choose from among the many fresh toppings, such as chopped cilantro, sliced avocado, and crema. The Burrito Factory has two or three different salsas every day, so I usually request one with salsa roja and one with verde. Despite the bland ordinariness of Dobie Mall, dining here is an enjoyable experience because they get the combination of well-prepared food and colorful presentation just right. The extensive menu also includes quesadillas (crisp, oozing with cheese, delectable), enchilada plates, and a variety of tortas, with your choice of filling, including everything from shrimp to lingua. And their burrito suiza is a monster.
A wide selection of Mexican and American drinks is also on offer: Mexican liter Cokes, Topo Chico, aguas frescas, and regular fountain drinks.
The service is always fast and friendly, and the Burrito Factory is both convenient and affordable. If you’re looking for a quick but tasty lunch in the southwest campus area, check this place out!
