I have never been a fan of Chipotle. I’ve tried to like it, but even pregnancy cravings for burritos couldn’t make me get further than a few bites. Why people dress in tinfoil and line up outside for a free lunch here is beyond me.
What I always have liked about this chain is the concept. Enter Ohio City Burrito. The tiny Chipotle-esque restaurant that makes everything from scratch (except the chips).
On my visit, I tried the Brother’s Burrito, a flour tortilla stuffed with rice, black beans, pulled pork, lettuce, guacamole and pico de gallo. Simple and perfect. I can’t believe I ate the whole thing. Seriously. This was one huge and sloppy (utensils required) burrito. The only thing I would have liked more would have been a bit of heat. Perhaps next time I’ll have to try one of the other sauces.
The total menu has two burrito options with several choices from meats to other accompaniments, a taco, taco salad and nachos.
The space is small, maybe five tables and a window bar with a few stools. It’s a perfect fit for the area and will surely continue to do well, especially for the lunch crowd. It’s just the latest to join the many great (and cheap) lunch options on that street. In fact, one I often hear raves about is Nate’s, which I’ve never been to but am eager to check out on a future lunch visit.
