For hundreds of years, the tastes of our southern neighbor have influenced the American palate. But after the Mexican Revolution, refugees from the south and center of Mexico brought their culinary traditions north into the U.S., which led to dishes like burritos becoming popular.
Mexican food has played an increasingly important role in American cuisine as global culture has grown. So, where can one find American Mexican food at its finest? Several excellent Mexican restaurants in Ohio specialize in this type of cuisine.
We've listed our picks for five of the best Mexican restaurants in Ohio that serve burritos.
1. Mi Burrito Mexican Grill, West Chester, Ohio
You can make your burrito here with great meat. Instead of lining up at Chipotle, come here instead. Basically, like there, you start with a base and then add various kinds of rice and beans along with expertly cooked al pastors and any salsa you want.

3. Lalo, Cincinnati, Ohio
Among the success stories of what business partners Trang Vo and Ed Reyes call the Chino-Latino mashup is Lalo's drunken brisket burrito. Roy Choi set the bar high for fusion food when he was nominated for Food and Wine's Best New Chef award in 2010-the first food truck chef ever to win the award. Lalo follows him in that respect.
It is worthwhile to order curry chicken empanadas and "Mexican-style" pad thai with carnitas. Due to its braised state in white wine, the drunken brisket burrito is rolled with beans and rice, smothered in brisket jus, and topped with queso fresco before being served.
