Welcome To Pedro & Vinny's Cart

As your lead burrito analyst has pointed out, it’s hard to find a good Burrito in Washington DC. That search has brought this junior burrito analyst to 15th and K, NW (Map) to what most K Streeters call "The Burrito Cart." In fact, its called Pedro and Vinny’s (he even has a website), but it's really just one cart, one man, a whole lot of hot sauces, and one mean veggie burrito.

The line moves rapidly, just make sure you know how to order. There are five tortillas, three sizes and either black beans or spiced refried pintos, plus salsa, guacamole and sour cream - medium and large sizes come with rice.

You will be moved swiftly, but kindly, so be ready. As you wait, enjoy free chips with the dozens of hot sauces to try. Then choose your favorites to put on and your burrito will be made right under your nose.

I went here again just today. The 'burrito cart' has been here for more than five, perhaps ten, years now. The original owner (an attorney and law-firm-rat-race escapee) sold it several years ago when he moved to the mountains. The new(er) owner is cool too, the quality is consistent, and the selection of hot sauces is crazy! He must have at least 20 if not 30 different types of sauce (and tortilla chips to try them out with). Definitely a must-try for vegetarians/vegans... and all burrito lovers of the world. Definitely my favorite east-coast burrito ever! I haven't been to the downtown McChipotle or Burrito Brothers in years.

Sadly the cart hasn't been seen yet this year. The next closest cart is at 17th and K Streets at the corner where the Dress Barn Woman store is. Not quite as good, but not bad when you need a burrito fix.

Just had this burrito today at 15th and K. So the cart is around for sure.

The 15th and K burritos are great! There was a late winter hiatus for some reason or another, but those black-beaned beauties are definitely back.
The cart manages to give of the mom&pop vibe in spite of the fact that he knocks out your order in about 90 seconds.

Get there before 2pm. He's gone after that.

Sounds good, might have to check this out. In the meantime, it looks like ya'll haven't reviewed the Well-Dressed Burrito? It's located in the alley between 19th and 20th Streets just north of M Street. Also lunch time only.
