Burritos in Toronto run the gamut from Mission-style to traditional Mexican to burritos stuffed with Chinese chow mein (yes, it exists, and it’s good). Get your burrito fix from a range of indie restaurants and franchise heavy hitters.
Here are my picks for the top burritos in Toronto by neighbourhood.

Asian-inspired burritos from Chino Locos bring us options stuffed with unconventional ingredients like edamame, General Tao chicken, and chow mein noodles that sub the regular rice filling.
The popular chain Fat Bastard has long been rolling it up around the GTA. Despite its problematic logo it continues to be a go-to for chunky wraps.
