Mountain West Burrito Announced as Featuring One of the 4 Best Burritos in Northern Utah

Tortilla, Rice, Beans, Cheese, Meat, Veggies… These simple ingredients are used to create one of the most popular dishes in the America’s, the burrito. There are numerous restaurants in Utah featuring Mexican cuisine, so what makes Mountain West Burrito different?

At Mountain West Burrito, we keep it simple, simple, simple which allows us to be fast, fast, fast. We abide by a very straightforward concept: delicious, handcrafted food without the fuss, but more importantly, without the wait.

All restaurants say it, but very few actually do it. To us fresh means made from scratch every day! That goes for our pasture raised meats to organic brown rice and beans. We make EVERYTHING fresh, EVERY DAY! It’s that simple.

We are your local dive. Your hangout. The place where, by the time you get to the counter, we have it made for you because, yes, we’ve noticed that you are here every Thursday and you like the steak chimichanga. We want to get to know you, after all, we are part of the community. We see this as your place, we just make the burritos.

A firm commitment to these beliefs is why KSL recently featured Mountain West Burrito as having one of the 4 best burritos in Northern Utah. Read the full article here.

Join us at one of our three locations for fast, fresh and local burritos. Thanks to our wonderful customers for supporting Mountain West Burrito and making the restaurant one your favored burrito locations.

Mountain West Burrito’s Half-and-half nachos ($8) are an ideal group appetizer or full-size entrée for Utah County residents and students. The half-and-half comes with your choice of any two meat or vegetable combinations.

Thanks For the Love City Weekly Readers!

In City Weekly’s 23rd Annual  Readers’ Choice “Best of Utah” Awards, Communal and Pizzeria 712 repeated as the winner and runner up for Best Utah County Restaurant!  Our gratitude to everyone that voted for us and all those helping us make the Heirloom restaurants something special for our community to enjoy  — our great team and all our lovely customers!  Rounding out the top three was another downtown Provo establishment, our friends just up the street from Communal,  Daniel Shanthakumar’s Bombay House.

City Weekly said:

Best Utah County Restaurant — Communal  *Readers’ Choice*

True to its name, Provo’s Communal restaurant offers communal seating for those who enjoy meeting and making new foodie friends. The big communal table in the front of the restaurant is this eatery’s centerpiece. And it’s not unusual to see former strangers sharing bites of food and discussing the merits of, say, the roasted Brussels sprouts with hazelnuts versus farro with winter squash and braised greens. For the not-so-social, no worries: Not all seating at Communal is communal; you can even belly up to the counter and snag a solo stool. One thing is certain: You won’t find better contemporary American cuisine in Utah County.
