Whether you're late to the burrito party, or a self-proclaimed burrito god(dess), having a go-to list for the city's finest foil-wrapped pieces of heaven, will prove helpful.
While some of these burrito havens aren't exclusive to "the six", most (if not all) did in fact start out here. And for those who only seem to get hungry once the sun goes down, some of these spots are open late. Like, really late.
So, here's a list of where the best burritos in Toronto can be found.

Fat Bastard Burrito *
With over 10 Toronto locations alone, Fat Bastard Burrito will probably change your life with its unique add ons. Think: ramen noodles and crispy tortilla chips – both are fine on their own, but in a burrito, it's heavenly. It's almost impossible not to go back.

Burrito Boyz *
Infamous for its multiple convenient locations (one of which is directly across from a Fat Bastard Burrito location...so good luck making that choice), Burrito Boyz is a staple in the (unofficial, also non-existent) Toronto Burrito Bible. It's a must for burrito veterans and newbies alike. Don't believe us? Check out their awards.
What first began as a food truck one could stumble upon at festivals, has now evolved into multiple locations across the city...and beyond. While their specialty is fish tacos, their burrito game is undeniably strong.
They call themselves the "birthplace of Toronto's Best Burrito" and they certainly didn't lie – they are totally among the best in the city, and arguably the Toronto Burrito OGs. Their first location on Peter Street opened in 2003, and they've been killing it ever since – at all four locations.
And if years of burrito-slaying experience isn't enough, the Peter Street location is open til 4 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays.

Let's just call this place the Canadian equivalent of Chipotle. Z-teca is an all-Canadian company that prides themselves on being able to offer not just an awesome burrito, but a healthy one, too.
