Yeah, I'm a fan of Burrito Brothers going way back to their original Dupont location. I like that they've stood their ground against the wrap craze, which mostly faded, and other local burrito purveyors, several of which also faded away. Decent, dependable, inexpensive food from a local outfit.
Their strongest competitor, Chipotle, on the other hand, just doesn't do it for me. Everything about the place is a little too perfect and measured, which I guess is to be expected from a corporate chain. And there's a similar taste running through their various products, at least the ones I tried, and that's a turnoff. However, they do a killer business, in DC at least, so people obviously feel different about them than I do. But I know where I'll spend my money.

Burrito Brother regular and super size burritos with the base burrito being beans (refried, red, black) rice and salsa, you get cheese with the super) The basic super beans and rice for $5-6 will definitely be a meal.
This local chain started in Dupont Circle and now has locations on Capital Hill, Union Station Adams Morgan, and Georgetown, for example.
