However perfect and invincible this concoction may seem, bad burritos do exist. Fortunately for you, this list only includes Kentucky's best. There is no shortage of burritos in the land of the free, from dignified bodegas to taverns with flashier décor. In addition to online and print sources, we consulted nationally and locally trusted sources. The burritos from these 5 spots were chosen as the clear winner after assessing the quality of the tortilla wrapping and, of course, the flavor of the burritos.
1. Tortillería Y Taquería Ramírez, Lexington, Kentucky
The truth is, while you're in Lexington, you shouldn't forget about trying Tortillera Y Taqueria Ram*rez while you're around. The asada and carnitas meat are prepared with a great deal of attention. As the restaurant's name indicates, it's a functioning tortillería that's become the heart of the city's Mexican community, self-described as Mexington.

4. El Caminante Mexican Restaurant, Maysville, Kentucky
This Hispanic traditional fare restaurant is the perfect place to eat authentic Mexican cuisine. Prices are under $10, the food is plentiful, and the service is fast and friendly. Jumbo Margaritas are a true treat if you drink and like the taste of Tequila. They come in a variety of flavors. The bartenders quite generously serve tequila, so have a designated driver on hand if you intend to consume a few. I recommend the bean and cheese enchiladas with rice and beans and any of the Burritos with queso. The food, the flavors, and the service at El Caminante will not disappoint. It is considered one of the best Mexican restaurants within 100 miles, according to some residents.

5. The Burrito Shack, Murray, Kentucky
You'll often find a line outside the Burrito Shack, a popular local eatery in Murray. Served up by the restaurant for more than a decade, they offer delicious burritos and other items from the menu.
Having a burrito, chips, and salsa while enjoying a tropical theme at the Burrito Shack is a great experience. This family-owned restaurant saw a need for such a restaurant in the Murray area, and the locals, college students, and tourists are happy to see that it is now available. It's the burritos that are the star of this menu, and you can choose from a variety of flavors in a regular or massive size.
Besides burritos, other menu items include quesadillas, tacos, bowls, etc. Eat it with a side of chips, salsa, and guacamole, your dinner will be an instant hit. Fresh ingredients are used in the dishes, which are full of flavor. Take on the restaurant's challenge of eating four burritos in one sitting if you arrive hungrily.
