A Gainesville icon closes it's doors...

Burrito Brothers closes forever this weekend.

No I'm not one of the saps that will line up out the door for a farewell meal, as I always thought their food was overrated anyway, well except for the guac, they made awesome guac... but it's still kind of sad they started in 1976 and were known to everyone and very nice people.

Treated employees and customers right.

I had a feeling when they went to a sit-down format instead of a takeout window that their days were numbered, and the new construction that further limited their already very limited parking didn't help either.

Sign of the times I guess, mom and pop operations are becoming exceedingly rare in Gainesville these days, it's one giant strip mall. Orlando North.

So long Burrito Brothers, and thanks for the food, while IMO not the manna from heaven some made it out to be, it was tasty enough and **** good hangover food.
