In recent months, Americans have missed their favorite food the most, and most are looking forward to dining out again once the situation improves. According to an online meal delivery platform, Doordash, Mexican food is what American consumers miss the most.
Let's say we still need more proof that Americans love Mexican food. A Chef's Pencil analysis of Google searches for various cuisines shows Mexican to be the second most popular "ethnic" cuisine in the United States after Chinese. Additionally, it is the top choice in 27 states.
Kansas has an affinity for savoring food, whether burrito, burger or anything else. We've rounded up the top 5 burrito spots in Kansas.
1. Red Kitchen Tamales, Lenexa, Kansas
A truly good burrito stands out because the tortilla could be eaten on its own with a pinch of salt and perhaps a dab of butter. At Red Kitchen Tamales, you can find great burritos and quesadillas, too, even if the name tries to suggest otherwise. Currently, tamales are served only a couple of times a week. Since this is a stall inside the public market, the food rotations more frequently than a typical brick-and-mortar restaurant, so we recommend the bacon breakfast burrito and chicken tinga.
