*****5 out of 5 stars*****

Infamous for its messy, over stuffed burritos - Big City Burritos is an infamous munchie stop for college students and foodies alike. Located on the corner of Mulberry and College in Fort Collins, would be easily missed if it were not for the line hanging out the door. It's a sight for sore eyes, with outdated furniture and shabby paint on the walls. But the burritos are so good, people come from miles just to have one.

When you go, expect a line. The line will usually make its way out the door and around the corner. It will literally help you identify the restaurant. The line will display an array of humanity - college students, senior citizens, kids to creeps. Most people get the burritos to go, as the dinning area is small, crowded and easily filled up.

The menu is not extensive at Big City. Almost everyone who goes will get some kind of burrito. They have a few choices including "The Potatoe" and "Chicken Mole". For the daring, their is "The Gutbuster". The name explains it as it is the all inclusive HUGE burrito with everything imaginable. They have a ton of fun and novelty salsa's that can be put into the burrito during construction. Everyone orders their unique creation, as if we were line at Starbucks.

For this visit, I had a pototoe burrito. These are so good, but so bad for you. Start with a flavored tortilla, then add melted cheese and sauted onions. The comes in ranch style potatoes, sour cream, ranch, guacomole, and some more salsa. They wrap the burrito in foil and drop it in a plastic bag. The burrito hit the spot, and before I knew it I can scarfed the whole thing. I was the last one to receive my food, but the first to finish.

I'd be surprised to find someone who has not been to Big City Burrito because it is that popular in Fort Collins! But if you have never been before, don't judge this book by its cover.
