**Update 9/3 – The burrito cart will be re-opening!** 

This might be the worst day ever (OK, exaggerating).  But, I just read in DCist that the Burrito Man (see here for my ode to his fantastic, cheap burrito) might be closing down unless he can find a new Burrito Man.  See here for the story on why he’s moving.

Apparently, the guy who was going to take the title has disappeared.

Why do you toy with our emotions new Burrito Man?  Come out of hiding!

**Update 9/3 – The burrito cart will be re-opening!  And he’ll be staying at 15th and K in front of CVS!** 

You may remember my ode to the Burrito Man.  Well, DCist says that Burrito Man #1 will be handing off his cart to Burrito Man #2 AND moving to 14th and L.

Do you know the Burrito Cart Man?  He lives on the corner of 15th and K Street (in front of the CVS).   Visit his Web page to know whether he’s going to be there.  His menu is here:

Burrito Cart  Burrito Cart Menu

  • Food: You will crave this burrito.  You can pick small (without rice), medium (with rice), or large (I can’t imagine).  He’s got multiple types of tortillas, but I go with flour.  Then he asks if you want cheese.  Then in the “medium” burrito, you can choose between black beans, re-fried beans, or a mixture of both.  You get rice.  He makes his own pico de gallo.  Then you can tell him how spicy you want your burrito — he has about 40 or 50 different flavors.  You can also add guacamole and/or sour cream.  He does not serve any meat.  And no one should be worried about eating from his cart — I’ve eat there for at least 4 years and have never gotten sick. 
  • Service: Excellent!  He’s such a nice guy!
  • Atmosphere: It’s only a grab-and-go kind of place.
  • Attire: Casual — it’s a cart for crying out loud!
  • Price: $ (the burrito in the picture is $5!)
  • Overall: Some days, you wake up and think, “today is a burrito man day.”  Or at least I do.  Ha ha.


  • Hours: Not sure.  I go though around 11:30ish before the line gets too long.  And trust me, it does get to be a very long line.  He leaves when he runs out of food.
  • Address: On the corner of 15th and K Street (in front of the CVS)
  • Ph: None
