The next time anybody tells you Seattle doesn’t have good burritos, blindfold them, put them in the backseat of your car, and take them to Chilolos, a Mexican spot in Georgetown.
The best thing that Chilolos serves is their grilled burrito with carnitas, which forces us to cancel our plans to eat here before they close at 6pm. In each bite, you’ll get some red rice, tender chunks of carnitas, pinto beans, and the ideal amount of sour cream and pico de gallo - all of the elements perfectly distributed like a parent packing Christmas stockings for twin toddlers.
Sure, the al pastor isn’t as flavorful as other spots in town, and they sadly sell out of chorizo or carnitas by 1pm sometimes. But you should come here to eat cheese and meat-stuffed tortillas that could rule the world. Your friends will thank you for the introduction—after forgiving you for blindfolding them.
