The business of burritos in Toronto is dominated by a few key players that operate multiple locations and seemingly hog all the attention. There are, however, a number of often overlooked burrito purveyors, who boast their own local followings addicted to these bundles of joy, overstuffed with seasoned meats, fresh vegetables, salsas and sauces.

Here are five burrito joins in Toronto you may not have heard of.

In N Out Burrito
This burrito joint on Wilson is in no way affiliated with the popular west coast burger chain, but it certainly has its own cult following. This indie outfit does massive burritos packed with a choice of seasoned meats like mango chicken, steak or halibut with fresh cut veggies, beans, gauc and salsa, hot sauce and sour cream.

Big Bite Burrito
Two Scarborough locations serve classic burritos as well as unique specialties like tequila chicken, lemon tartar fish, and baja chicken customized at the counter to order. Select from three sizes varying in price from $6 to $11.50.

Burrito Burrito
Locations in Woodbridge and Liberty Village pride themselves on offering a healthier alternative to most fast foods. The menu boasts burritos ($7.83-$15.88) packed with veggies, soy, chicken, steak, halibut or shrimp plus an assortment of Tex-Mex toppings. For a delectable deluxe experience, try the surf and turf with steak and shrimp together ($9.92 to $15.88).

Como En Casa
Of the many delicious dishes on the menu at this Mexican kitchen, the burritos ($7.85-$8.95) are a house favourite. The establishment on Yonge near Wellesley fills burritos with a choice of beef, chicken, pork or veg that come wrapped in a flour tortilla with rice, beans, cheese and sour cream and classic fixin's like roasted corn, salsa, and fresh vegetables.

New York Subway
Don't be deterred by its grubby appearance or the deceiving name that suggests its a sandwich shop - the burritos ($3.50-$11) are without a doubt the real gem on this menu. The potato burrito is inexplicably delicious, it comes dressed with lettuce, tomato and what I think is ketchup.
