If you want to try a little bit of everything, the Flying Burrito is what to order.

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.

We proudly presented the 35 burritos that came out on top, and Juan’s Flying Burrito was included on the list.

If you’re looking for a great burrito in the Crescent City, look no further than Juan’s. This “Creole taquería” has three locations, where everything is made to order and finished à la minute on the grill.

If you want to try a little bit of everything, the Flying Burrito is what to order: grilled steak, shrimp, and chicken; Cheddar and Jack cheese; black beans; yellow rice; salsa; sour cream; and guacamole are rolled up in a tortilla, then given a final go on the grill.
