The first Thursday of April is National Burrito Day. What a perfect holiday to celebrate deliciousness wrapped in a warm tortilla! In 2021, the first Thursday also happens to be April 1st- April Fools Day. But don’t be fooled, you can find some of the best burritos here along the Emerald Coast.
Here are our top three favorite restaurants to enjoy a burrito at:
Locals agree: Pepito’s is the best Mexican restaurant in town. They pride themselves in “bringing the border to the beach”. They specialize in the most authentic traditional Mexican cuisine in the area! Pepitos has four locations in the area: Destin, Destin East- Miramar, Bluewater Bay- Niceville, and Fort Walton Beach!
Burrito Del Sol
The name “Burrito Del Sol” speaks for itself! All dishes are prepared in one of their four signature styles including Baja, chipotle, bbq, and southwest. Chicken burritos “southwest style” are a fan favorite here at this restaurant. Burrito Del Sol conveniently has locations in both Destin and Fort Walton Beach!
You may or may not have heard of Burritacos. This small restaurant is located within an Exxon gas station on Highway 98! I consider Burritacos one of the best-hidden gems in the Destin area and some of the most authentic Mexican food you can find in the area! Also, Burritacos was inspired by the flavors of Chihuahua and every bite is delicious.
