The first time I ate a breakfast burrito - was almost a religious experience. It happened at a simple mom-and-pop place, near the Gonzaga campus in Spokane. 

Many local mom-and-pop places make tasty breakfast burritos. sampled breakfast burritos from national fast-food chains and curated a list that we share with you. 

The number one pick made the food critic explain "OMG!"

8 - Jack in the Box

The Good: The egg and sausage have good flavor. The Bad: Hot sauce is essential because it lacks seasoning.

You have the option of two sizes options. The BK Breakfast burrito seemed like the ingredients from their breakfast sandwich - inserted into a burrito.


6 - Wendy's

If you like bacon on the chewy side, go grab a Wendy’s Breakfast Burrito. They pack in a bunch of bacon. says: "The ingredients needed to be blended better."

5 - Taco Bell

The tester was surprised that Taco Bell did NOT deliver a better Breakfast Burrito.

It IS Taco Bell after all right?

The Good: “I liked how the egg and sausage were mixed” The Bad: “It could've used some veggies, salsa, beans (come on!), or other elements to help spice it up.” “The sausage tasted metallic.” and “The eggs were also a little rubbery.”


 4 - Chick-fil-A

Found all over the Puget Sound area.

The Good: A nice crispness on the potatoes. The eggs were OK. The Bad: The lower half of the burrito is where the chicken and cheese were - with so many potatoes that it could've used more of the other fillings (or fewer potatoes) for better balance.


3 - McDonald's

The pork sausage had a sharp spice and tasted better than Taco Bell. Other positives:

'The cheese blended in well with the soft and fluffy eggs and adding the chiles and onions elevated it way above the options that didn't have any veggies.'



2 - Del Taco

You’ll find Del Taco in Walla Walla, Tri-Cities, Vancouver WA, The Olympia area (Lacey), and Federal Way.

With three breakfast burrito options: Bacon and egg, egg and cheese, and egg and carne asada.

They do a great job with the steak, the eggs and other fillings are mixed in very well.

'After my first bite, I said, "Oh my God!" out loud. That was a first and only for me during this taste test...I would order this again!'
