Los Dos Molinos has been a Phoenix institution for over 20 years.

To pay homage to the beloved burrito, we compiled our third-annual ranking of our country’s best. We divided the more than 130 burritos that made our shortlist by region — from Albany, California, in the West; to Las Cruces, New Mexico, in the Southwest; to Boston in the Northeast. After that, we asked nearly 40 burrito experts to weigh in and vote. [related]

We proudly presented the 35 burritos that came out on top, and Los Dos Molinos made the cut.

Peek into the kitchen at Los Dos Molinos, a Phoenix institution for more than 20 years, and you’ll find the owner or one of her daughters and just one helper preparing Tex-Mex classics from scratch, to order. Burritos here come filled with beef, chicken, or chili, but opt for the carne adovada: a red pork stew that’s a Southwest specialty (when in Rome, right?).

Few places do it better than Los Dos Molinos, and when wrapped up in a flour tortilla with some melted cheese, there are few foods more comforting. Heed the warning given by the little red chili pepper next to it on the menu, however: it’s spicy.
