It’s National Burrito Day. Who’s ready to celebrate? I’ve already started receiving questions on where to get some burritos around Wichita, so I anticipated the holiday by throwing together some of my favorite burritos around town.
Wichita is lucky to have tons of local options around town. I’ve lost count of how many burritos I’ve eaten in my visits to the hundreds and hundreds of places that this city has to offer. I read through many old blogs, scoured through thousands of pictures I refuse to delete in my phone and put this guide together of 15 of some of my favorite burritos around town.
So if you’re on the hunt for some burritos today, here are suggestions on some of my picks for best burritos in Wichita. As always, these lists are completely curated by yours truly. Don’t be fooled by lists whipped up with other people’s Yelp feedback and pictures taken from somewhere else. What you see below are my pictures and experiences. Enjoy.

Bento Café – 550 N Ridge Rd, Wichita, KS 67212
Speaking of sushi burritos, the best one on the west side of town is found at Bento Café.
After publishing this article, there were two I left out that are also worth checking out. Tacos TJ 664 and Juarez Bakery. Tacos TJ 664 as many of you know has some bomb shrimp tacos that also work great in burrito form. As for Juarez Bakery, their breakfast burritos are the best value in the city at under $3.
