El Gran Burrito: Killer Tacos from a Trailer | Restaurants
Unless we were specifically looking for it, we probably would have driven right by El Gran Burrito. Located about 1/2 a mile down the street from Monte Alban, El Gran Burrito is a small trailer in a parking lot of an auto garage. There is just one guy working on board (on the menu the name Juan Gonzalez was written) and the kitchen inside the truck was pretty simple. The menu is very small; tacos are $7 for 5, a burrito is $6 and quesadillas were $5. We definitely brought our appetites and everyone ordered all three options and tried every meat that was available that night.
The burritos and quesadillas were good but not that exciting, honestly you could get comparable versions at Chipotle or some of the better Mexican restaurants in Buffalo. The burrito had Spanish rice, a hybrid stewed/refried beans, shredded cheddar cheese, chopped lettuce and meat. They were good and large but not worth a 40 minute drive. The quesadilla was incredibly simple and had just meat and cheese between two tortillas.
What stood out and really impressed all of us were the tacos. They were served in the traditional Mexican style, a simple preparation of chopped meat on a single corn tortilla (cooked on a flat top) and topped with chopped onion and cilantro. The meats that were available that day were beef, pork, chicken, chorizo and Barbacoa. All four us ordered 5 tacos and tried each meat with their avocado and spicy red sauce.
