The Burrito Blog


Bistek Y Queso

Carl's is a sub shop that makes a fine burrito. I recommend going for the burritos, but had to taste exactly why they're famous.

John and I split a burrito (review here) and a steak and cheese.

I've got to admit - I'm out of my element here. This is, after all, Burrito Blog, so I'll keep this quick.

It was good.

This Carl's meal was rated: 6.7.

The Mad Amigo

There are about four things on the menu at Carl's. One is the Mad Amigo (a burrito). This is what he looks like.

As far as handmade signage goes, the Mad Amigo is second only to the defending champ, the Sopa Sale at Tacos Lupita. Man, I miss that place.

Burritos From A Sub Shop

Ordinarily this would be a terrible idea. I mean, why not just get your burritos at a 7-11? Disclaimer: do not take that seriously. Do not get the microwaveable bean burritos from the 24 hour convenience store.

Return to Carl's, a noteworthy exception.

The burritos from this sub shop were pretty amazing. While they don't have the ingredients selection to which I have become accustomed, they do make a mean burrito.

As the last meal from with the guys from Brighton, none were disappointed with the burritos from Carl’s.

For consistency's sake, we tried the steak and cheese sub, too. Review to follow.

This Carl's meal was rated: 7.7.

Welcome To Carl's

John and I first heard about Carl's in Waltham (Map) when we had our sit down with Eric and Dan from The Phantom Gourmet at Qdoba.

These dudes know food. They're professionals.

Wait so are we. We're professional food analysts, too. Only they get paid.

Casting aside their "paid to eat" status and our "pay to eat" standing, we knew we had to give Carl's a try. Although they specialize in steak subs, we were told not to underestimate the burritos and the character of the place. I consider it an historic event: the last exploration of Burrito Blog setting out from Brighton, MA.
