Another place we visited this weekend because of the reviews. And again DISAPPOINTED, definitely prefer Chipotle. The pork wasn't bad jus wish it was SHREDDED and not in CHUNKS. Also ANOTHER place we won't visit again in Gainesville.

I hadn't planned to go here but I was going by and decided I was in the mood for a burrito. I'm glad I stopped. It's kind of a little hole in the wall place but the food is fresh, they have many choices and the price is not outrageous. They don't have a lot of inside seating but they... More

I've heard about this place for a while. I'm so glad my Daughter and I stopped in. The parking was much better than it looked. The food was fresh and I liked the curry mayo sauce as I'm a curry freak. Will definitely return.

Go to Chipotle. Food was not that good and the place is a dump. Looks like an ancient DQ. No seating and very cramped. Staff was friendly but that was about it.

Awesomely fresh items to add to the burrito, taco, plate of your choice. Start by choosing a meat and then have at it...they will pile as much as they can on top, of a choice of about 15-20 items. Great Value for the money, I overate and then still took enough home for lunch the next day. I enjoyed it... More

Stopped in with friends for lunch. The place is small and extremely busy but the service was good. The burritos are large enough to share and there are several to choose from. The tacos were outstanding. Over abundance of meat and cheese on each one. Nice to see they have a good selection of craft and domestic beers.

So Burrito Famous is a great place to eat overall, with a few minor issues. First off, the food is delicious. I love the huge number of topping selections made available. The steak n' onion (Philly style ribeye) is delicious as well as the grilled chicken. The cool garlic lime is to die for!! For a treat, their churro is... More
