East Coast Burrito Factory
Fort Lauderdale, FL 33308
New Times Broward-Palm Beach's Description
Long before Chipotle and Moes began hawking burritos in South Florida, hometown favorite East Coast Burrito Factory was constructing gargantuan, one-pound burritos and unleashing them like mini-Godzillas on the public. The burritos say East Coast, but the style is distinctly San Franciscan with a Florida twist -- Frisco burros are known for their bulging mass, their baby-like size, and their mess of everything-but-the-kitchen-sink fillings. East Coast ups the ante by turning their burritos into Floritos, huge flour tortillas that incorporate Caribbean and Cuban elements like black beans and rice, fresh seafood, and jerk sauce. Although jerk sauce on a burrito may sound like a foolhardy proposition, this place pulls it off. That plus a chipotle barbecue burrito that's perhaps the best bit of tubular love flung out in South Florida.
Tips from foursquare
Unless you're super hungry the regular size burritos are more than adequate.
Only open week days... Amazing food!
Grande burrito will result in catching the "itis". Beware!
They have 2 kinds of hot sauce on the table. Yellow bottle is Habenero and the other bottle is Cayenne. Choose wisely.
