Burgritos in Bethpage is, thankfully, exactly what it sounds like....burgers, burritos and a burger-burrito hybrid that you must try – after all, it is the signature dish. The deliciousness certainly doesn't stop there, if that somehow doesn't interest you, there are no shortage of other menu options from tacos to a wide array of salads and burrito bowls too.
Opening just a few months ago, Burgritos has landed itself into quite the location. Next to the local beer distributor... as you walk out, 6 pack of Corona in hand, how could you possibly pass up a perfectly paired burgrito or side of loaded nachos to go? By the way, a burgrito has 8 ingredients perfectly wrapped inside its flour tortilla home. Burger meat (like actual burger meat, not those frozen patties from fast-food chains), American cheese, bacon, French fries (yes, French fries), lettuce, tomatoes, onions and a killer chipotle sauce.
It does have to be said that Burgritos could easily have the best french fries in Nassau County. I consider myself quite the french fry snob, see Best French Fries on LI, so it’s quite a statement coming from me. If for absolutely nothing else, come in for a side of fries...you'll be left wondering how they could possibly taste any better than if they were wrapped up in a burrito-like fashion (Catch my drift? Try the burgrito!).
This quick-stop restaurant is the epitome of informal, while not giving off a fast-food restaurant vibe. Patron bottle lighting adds a certain charm to the restaurant giving a necessary dose of cool to the decor. Equipped with a huge blackboard for customers to write on, you suddenly – whether you're 25 or 12 – feel compelled to write “so and so was here!” The chalk is there, so do it. There is ample seating throughout the restaurant, though you could just as easily order your food online for pick-up or delivery and enjoy your meal at home. Burgritos is located at 445 Central Avenue, in Bethpage. Open Sunday-Thursday 11am-9pm, and Friday-Saturday 11am-9:30pm.
Good to know: Delivery is free, with a $20 minimum, in the 'designated delivery area'. View the menu or order online.
