Best Breakfast Burritos in the Reno/Sparks area?

NVJims Jun 13, 2010 08:44 AM

There's got to be some killer burritos out there for the morning crowd. So far I've only found them at the chains.

    You might try the breakfast burrito at the Tortas Ebenezer truck on Wells, near the Oakland BBQ place.

    I like their roasted chicken tortas, but my wife had a breakfast burrito and liked it.

      Found the best breakfast burrito so far in the area. Jimboy's Tacos on Sullivan in Sparks. Large chunks of chorizo with eggs and potatoes. They had fresh salsa on ice. They open at 0600 and with coffee it came in under $4 before tax.

      Other chorizo burritos in the area had the sausage pretty well mushed out into the eggs, and it was nice to have some chunks to chew on.....

        We got them this morning from the one on S. Virginia. It was large but we weren't impressed with the meat flavor at all. No chunks like you mention. We'll make a "road trip" out to Sparks one day. Since they're a franchise, maybe that's the difference. Love their tacos tho' :)

          Make a road trip to Art's - the coffee bar adjacent to Village Market in Incline Village - amazing looking breakfast burritos and enchiladas...I'm headed there for my first one on Saturday morn - will report back!

            Please do.

            Have you tried this in IV:


            Made meslightly crazy that it was on the CA board not the SW. Oh well :)

              I have - good, not great. I'll stick to T's. I'm not digging No. Nevada being lumped in SW, either. If anything - put us with the Mountain States!

              Picked up burritos at La Mexicana in Kings Beach. They have a sign up that they're doing breakfast burritos.

                Art's = yummy! Four ate here Saturday morn pre-hike and everyone was happy. 2 of us had breakfast tacos; 2, breakfast burritos. I opted for the tacos of pork chile verde, scrambled eggs and cheese. Others partook of thick bacon, egg, potato, cheese tacos, ham, cheese, potato breakfast burrito, and chicken, black beans, rice, in a cilantro tortilla. The place was packed - line out the door and all tables taken at 8:30. Go!

            Have you tried La Hacienda?
            What about Bertha Miranda's?
            One more

            What about the Peruvian place that Steve likes?

              No Burritos in Peru, although oddly enough they have adapted Chinese food.
              Fifth Street Bakehouse does a wrap with Chorizo that's a little burrito like, but no beans.

                In my mind, breakfast is from about 0530 to 0900...but these places sound good to have a 'breakfast' burrito at lunchtime. I will have to check out El Adobe.

                  Looks like Hedi's has some as well, and they most certainly will be open during breakfast hours - good luck :)

                    Heidi's is gone. Building torn down.

                      Heidis moved to south Reno, I think Damonte Ranch Parkway.

                        My late MIL used to eat there but I never had. Thanks.
