Get Some Burritos is out to put its walking-around bar time food in the hands of Midwestern college kids. The naughty name and the "Badger burrito" (with fries in the wrap!) reminded us of places that used to be further down State Street. Their next branch is already planned for Ann Arbor. With a small menu of tacos, burritos, flautas and nachos, a good pedigree, and the right prices and hours for bar time splurges, they're on their way.
Vegetarian choices are the quesadillas or bean and cheese burritos. As for the meat, the beef was good - as noted at Eat Drink Madison, it's better than ground - but the chicken was unpleasantly rubbery-feeling, maybe from something in the salty marinade. There were notes of Kikkoman, and the onions were sharp. For $7, you could probably find a better burrito on State St., though at bar time less so.
JM's nachos started out kind of dry and unpleasantly separate. About a third of the way in, everything fused and the meal was saved. The chips were very cripsy, verging on tough, and salt salt SALT. Indeed, it seems that Get Some Sodium Chloride would be a fitting name. Perhaps they are looking to absorb liquids.
Their sauces were good and the guac was tasty, so there's a little bit of leaven in the loaf. Anyone who sauces their meat this much may have something to hide (for some reason, this feels like a double entendre). But San Diego burritos for grab and go? Why not?
