Long time San Joser’s told us to include Burrito Factory in the San Jose Burrito challenge. They instructed me to try the chicken burrito. I have to say, I didn’t try this one yet. By the time we got to Burrito Factory last October (open until 10pm), it was closed. So this weekend we finally got the chance to try it. Everyone was griping thinking for some reason it would be a chain like Chipotle. It is not a Mexican chain like Chipotle, even though it is in a strip mall. However, they do have four locations in the San Jose area.
The food was good and we liked their salsa which had some good heat (you purchase the chips and salsa). I got the crispy tacos with steak and el pastor and they each got a Chorizo breakfast burrito. John said it is now the second best breakfast burrito in San Jose. His first favorite breakfast burrito in San Jose is from Henry’s Fresh Mexican Grill in Santa Clara because they put tater tots in their breaky burrito! The staff was really nice at the B.F. we tried on Camden.
We know the food is made with vegetable oil because a friend with allergies called and talked to them about it.
Zach: Good. Good service. Salsa was good.
Lesley: It was pretty good. We need to go back and try more things on the menu to really see what we love there. But my tacos were tasty, particularly the shell. I like more stuff on my tacos so I would probably get a burrito next time, a super burrito!
