Best burrito in Eugene: Lonches to Go

Who has the best burrito in Eugene, Oregon?

It could be the carnitas, their juicy soft porkiness spiced just right. Or it could be the battered fried fish, spritzed with lime. It could be the char marks on the fresh tortillas, that taste like no other tortilla I’ve had in Eugene. Or it could be calling in an order, and owner Magarita High’s voice saying, “Hello my friend!”

Now, I’ve written about Eugene burritos before. Sunset Magazine even included my recommendation on the West’s best burritos. Thinking about the issue some more though, and after noshing down fish burritos on Friday night, I’m calling it for good.

The best burrito in Eugene is from Lonches to Go.

That’s it. Named. Seconded. Done.

Lonches serves up lots of other great non-burrito food (such as a damn good chile relleno and tasty tacos), but the burritos are always foremost to me. Whether fish or carnitas, and with plenty of red chile salsa on the side, I can also fill my belly for $5.50.

Lonches To Go rocks. They’re at 910 River Road. Usually people pick up their orders, but there is a covered outdoor seating area and a newer indoor seating area too, if you want to have a sit while enjoying burrito goodness. Call in your order at 541.461.7920, and praise Eugene’s best burritos Monday through Saturday, 10:30 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
