New Scooters, Faster Delivery

Tacos Pepito's Bakery has a new fleet (at least 2) of scooters at its Adams Morgan location.

According to Junior Burrito Analyst Dave Stuart, former resident of the other side of the bridge, the new scooters reduce delivery time by a substantial margin.

Faster burritos are better burritos.

The Sour Cream Tumor

I ordered the carne asada burrito from Tacos Pepitos for the first time without thinking. How foolish.

One bite in, sour cream alarm went into code white. Crema comes standard on the carne asada burrito from Tacos Pepito's Bakery. Boo!

But I was really hungry. Could anything be done? Could the sour cream tumor be removed?

Not only am I Lead Burrito Analyst, I am Lead Burrito Surgeon. Scalpel!

The lengthwise incision revealed the burrito had been poorly rolled. Never has such poor ingredient distribution been so appreciated. The sour cream tumor was removed. Procedure status: success.

Busses, No Busses

A few weeks ago I was in DC. For all you kiddos outside the east coast bus circuit, there's a network of non-stop, dirt cheap busses that hit all the major cities. Book online here.

Just don't miss your bus. No matter what.

If you miss the bus, the next one probably doesn't pick up near that corner, and your ticket is no good. I digress.

After a very full weekend, I hustled to meet up with Dave Stuart, the Junior Burrito Analyst who discovered Tacos Pepitos [Time: 5:00]. I was super late [Time: 5:45]. There was a line. The kitchen was backed up. The bus was leaving at 6:00.

Burritos are delivered in plastic bags but no tin foil [Time: 5:55], Anthony and I ran out of there and fly through the grid of the capitol city to get to the bus. I call and foolishly ask them to hold the departure [Time: 6:05]. My request is refused [Time: 6:06].

We arrive at the pickup location [Time: 6:15]. The bus has not yet left. I get the last seat, heart pounding, and dive into my 'Burrito Gringo.'

Was the big guy who thought he had an empty seat next to him happy to see me sneak in with my stinky burrito? No. Was the burrito delicious? Yes.

Liars! Again!

Last time Anthony and I went to Tacos Pepito's, they claimed to be open, but were, in fact, closed.

This time, the reverse was true.

I don't care that your 'open' sign doesn't work correctly. Just give me my food.

Last weekend, Anthony and I ran block after block through a tropical storm in search of a promise: the promise of Tacos Pepitos.

Soaked to the skin, we discovered that Tacos Pepitos does not turn off the 'Open' sign when they are, in fact, closed.

Welcome To Tacos Pepito's

After spending over a year in our Nation's Capital, I finally found a Burrito that can hold its own against most if not all burrito joints in the northeast corridor. Tacos Pepito’s Bakery on Columbia Street in Adams Morgan (Map) delivers the goods. At first, the extensive menu can be intimidating with various authentic Mexican dishes including Beef Tongue and Beef Head Tacos.

Come for the burritos, and you won’t be disappointed.

In particular I recommend the chicken burrito. As testament to the authenticity of the Mexican heritage, the Chicken Burrito is listed on the menu as the “Burrito Gringo.” It’s that same authenticity that serves as the only downside. The language barrier is the X factor and unless you can order in Spanish the burrito delivered to you may not be exactly what you requested. But roll with the punches and you’ll have yourself one of the best burritos our Capital has to offer for a little under 6 bucks.
