There might be no better food than the burrito. Then what could be wrong with it? It includes nearly every food group, it is a well-balanced meal (of sorts), and best of all, it can be carried around. The burrito hails from Mexico, but it quickly gained popularity stateside and was considered one of America's most iconic dishes. To celebrate this iconic symbol of culinary joy, we're happy to share our picks for Indiana's best burrito places.

In what sense does a burrito differ from other foods? We're talking about a mixture of rice, beans, cheese, meats, vegetables, guacamole, pico de gallo, crema, and maybe some hot sauce in a freshly baked flour tortilla. There is nothing like a burrito that combines all those Tex-Mex flavors into one delicious flavor bomb tailored to your liking.

1. Carniceria Guanajuato, Indianapolis, Indiana

There is a wide variety of Hispanic foods at this Mexican grocery store and restaurant. Huge steak burritos are the star order here, filled with tender carne asada and nary a rice filler in sight. There is also a very good chicken version, though it is not as popular. A light crust forms on both outsides, which provides a crunchy contrast to the tender meat inside.

2. Ricky's Taqueria, Elkhart, Indiana

Ricky's may be small and simple, but the same cannot be said about its burritos. Its burritos pack a big punch for as little as $7. You won't find a fresher burrito anywhere but Ricky's Taqueria, a casual and authentic Mexican joint in Elkhart. There's a reputation for serving consistently good food and offering charming service. Rice, beans, lettuce, tomato, coriander, onion, avocado, and semi-soft Chihuahua cheese (dairy-free Mexican cheese) are all included in Ricky's Famous Burritos. All three of these dishes are praised for their quality, including the Pollo (chicken), asada, and barbecue (barbecued beef).

There is phenomenal service here, and the food is authentic when it comes to Mexican cuisine. Several tourists reported eating at Ricky's several times because of its "amazing" food.

3. Tacos El Portal, Goshen, Indiana

In addition to tacos, this taco truck has some of the biggest and yummiest burritos around. Despite not finding a set schedule for their operations, I have noticed they are open late during the weekend and for lunch during the weekdays. This is conveniently located in the parking lot of 428 West Pike Street. There's nothing like the burrito supreme – that thing is gigantic, which means it can probably be eaten twice. Just $7 gets you your choice of meat, rice, onions, cilantro, avocado, tomatoes, and sour cream. There is nothing better than their Verde sauce.

4. Los Primos Mexican Grill, Goshen, Indiana

Chipotle is the way it should be. You can build your burrito for just $6.50, which includes a choice of meat, rice, or beans, as well as all the toppings you want - guacamole and queso can be added on. You can avoid the lunchtime line if you arrive a little early. Veggies and meats are always fresh here, and the service is fantastic as well. While you are there, grab a glass of Horchata if they have it available.

5. La Fogata Mexican Restaurant, Fort Wayne, Indiana

Experience authentic Mexican cuisine in the historical Quimby Village. During its recent rebranding, La Fogata offers an even more modern atmosphere and delicious food. There is a pretty good variety of food on the menu, and the interior is cheerful and welcoming. Visit La Fogata for some of the best chips and salsa in town to pair with some of the best tacos. Furthermore, this restaurant is as close as it gets to the new Clyde Theatre. Before you catch a concert at the Clyde, grab a bite at La Fogata!
