Home to fast-casual concepts like Chipotle, Qdoba, and Illegal Pete's, not to mention a whole lot of hole-in-the-wall Mexican restaurants, Denver is a hub for cheap burritos. Here are four of the city's more unique handheld offerings.
Rosa Linda's rolls a chile relleno into a tortilla with a side of rice or beans for only $5.95.
The green chile-smothered Smacdown burrito at Sam's No. 3 serves as two big meals, so it qualifies for a cheap eats steal at $12. It includes chorizo, tater tots, and mac and cheese.
Onefold in Uptown wraps Tender Belly bacon, green chili, eggs, duckfat fried potatoes, and asedero cheese in a house-made tortilla.
Scratch Burrito & Happy Tap features a few funky burrito options on its menu, including a Tandoori lamb burrito with curried brown rice and cilantro raita, a Korean barbecued beef burrito, and a blackened catfish burrito. All of Scratch's burritos include a side and cost less than $10.
It's not open yet, but Komotodo Sushi Burrito in Writer's Square will soon serve big, burrito-esque sushi handrolls, fast-casual style. It might just be the cheapest sushi lunch you'll ever eat.
