Is This Burrito the Best Thing in Atlanta?

A visit to El Burro Pollo in the Poncy Highland neighborhood can make a life changer out of any Saturday.  In the two years since Hector Santiago began crafting his joyous gifts of burritodom, the operation has moved indoors to the Super Pan location on Blue Ridge Avenue and the choice of succulent fillings now includes (delicious) marinated tofu.  All else remains the same. 

Queue up, savor the anticipation, and then sit on the street corner and watch the world go buy as you get lost in a perfect world of char, crunch and chili.  It's an Atlanta thing.

Here is Hector breaking down the operation back in the day.  Check it out for yourself this weekend!

Atlanta's Best Street Food

Hector Santiago is a TV star and owner of Pura Vida, home of Atlanta's best Tapas experience. More importantly, he is the man who has given us the world's greatest burrito!

Make your way to the parking lot at Highland and Blue Ridge on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon to experience El Burro Pollo. Chicken burrito is the only game this food stall plays - $6 for a regular, $10 for a large.

Am I obsessed? Does the smoky burn of the pickled chilies induce some kind of hallucinatory state? Is this all just an excuse to run down the street for a King of Pops dessert?

There is only one way you will find out! See you in line next weekend.
