Utah’s Best Breakfast Burrito Is In A Tiny Town
Utah’s best breakfast burrito according to Cheapism.com is not in the Salt Lake area or any urban area in the state. They looked at the best breakfast burritos served throughout the nation and this food truck, Tacos La Pasadita that is usually parked behind an abandoned Shell gas station in tiny Green River, Utah made the list.
The friendly roadside taquería serves fresh and "unbelievably delicious" all-day breakfast burritos, tacos, tamales, and weekends-only menudo (pork and tomato stew). After ordering a ham, bacon, sausage, or chorizo breakfast burrito, grab some homemade salsa inside the converted gas station and dine at one of the picnic tables outside.
Green River sits just off I-70 as you travel through eastern Utah towards Denver. They have a population of 788 people according to the Census Report. The median household income is $43,190 and it takes the average person 11.1 minutes to travel to work.
The actual Green River runs through it and gives the town its name. They are also big on watermelons, and you can usually get a watermelon shake at the burger places. However, thanks to someone stopping for a breakfast burrito on the way to Arches National Park, they may be known for the breakfast burrito as well.
To be honest, I have never been a big fan of the breakfast burrito, but then I have always had the cheap American version with a cold flour tortilla with some scrambled eggs thrown inside and maybe a sausage.
I would like to try this burrito. I may not drive all the way to Green River to get it, but I will certainly stop when traveling on I-70. And I plan to wash it down with a watermelon shake.
