Mountain Burritos, Waterbury, VT

If you crave a truly delicious burrito, go see Agatha (and sometimes Adam) at the Mountain Burrito cart in Waterbury, VT (on Main Street right, in front of the village green). The ingredients are fresh, favorful, abundant, and combine to make a humble burrito a delicious handheld feast ! As if this weren't enough, the service is friendly and appreciative and the prices are a downright bargain. Mountain Burrito is open for lunch and breakfast Monday - Friday and, I believe, during special events on the weekend.

        Great! I know what's for lunch today! :)

    1. What Tony said! I ordered a beef burrito with black beans, cheese, salsa, and sour cream. It was -delicious-. Only $5, too. :) and a good size for all that, too. Very well-stuffed, are her burritos. and she's just lovely. Sweet and warm. I'll definitely be going back! :)

        Tell your friends ! I think Agatha will do well: Great Food+ Great Prices+ Great Personalty = SUCCESS ! Glad you enjoyed it!

          Already raving about it at the office. :)

      2. Another great spot in Waterbury, huh??? Is it just me or does it seem like there is this wave of great food coming into the area??

          I think it's a plot in reaction to my whinging vocally about how there weren't many good places for a quick lunch. ;D

        2. Hmm, I'm somewhat skeptical but intrigued. I think I'll stop off today and try it on my way to Williston. I'm usually so disappointd in anything claiming to be good Mexican food...with two exceptions and neither one is in VT. Will report back.

          p.s. to TonyO - a burrito should always be a delicious hand-held feast! If it isn't they aren't doing it right. LOL

            Well, if you're expecting something you might find in SoCal or Texas, it's not that. But it was really tasty and a good burrito for the area.

            1. re: Morganna

              No, I try not to compare (anymore) Mexican food here with Mexican food I was raised on in SoCal because it just isn't fair. I just want it to be good and maybe use classic flavors/seasonings. And with both you and TonyO loving it, I really can't wait to sink my teeth into a burrito now. I was *so* disappointed that she wasn't open yesterday. I like the same places you do, so I'm not worried!

              I just wish I knew where Stebu Sushi was and I would have stopped in there for lunch instead, but I didn't see it during my search for the burrito cart and just decided to head to Williston and get my Sakura sushi fix instead.

              I'll try back again on my next trip up north...

                Stebu Sushi is on Main Street. At the corner of Stowe and Main there's a gas station on one side, and across Stowe from that there is a building where the sidewalk heading down Main goes downhill, and there are some doors that lead into shops in the "basement" of that building. Stebu Sushi is the second or third door heading away from Stowe, south on Main. It's sorta across Main from Arvad's, kinda. I'm sorry you couldn't find them!

            2. re: Bri

              Either I was looking in the wrong place or she wasn't open for business yesterday. There was only a hot dog stand. I went into the visitor center cafe and asked if there was usually a burrito cart out on the green and she said yes but hadn't seen her today. She also said I was the 3rd person to ask about it, so word of mouth is definitely getting out.

            3. Here's a story about her from the Stowe Reporter:

              1. Oh. My. Goodness. Another trip north and another day of no burrito lady. Then I couldn't remember Morganna's directions to Stebu, so I went to Ocha Thai and had my drunken noodle fix (pad khi mao). It was wonderful and delicious and I was a happy camper after that. Sort of.

                  Ach, the fates are not on your side! Still, Ocha Thai is good, too! (Stebu is right near Ocha
                  Thai, across Main Street, and on the other side of Stowe Street, write it down! ;)

                  1. re: Morganna

                    I did write it down this time. LOL And my lunch was delicious, so I really can't complain.
