Many fast-food and casual dining chains in the country serve the savory dish because of their filling and satisfying quality.

Why Eat Here
The Hot Head Burritos concept is similar to Chipotle but there are also several differences that make it a force to be reckoned with despite its relative newcomer status. The prices are more affordable, a boon to students, young professionals, and families on a budget who want to dine out without running out of cash. No surprised then that the lunch and dinner crowd usually have more than a few dishes on their tables!
The servings are also more generous so much so that the bowls are usually stuffed to the brim. Many diners say that they don’t even have to ask for extra servings because the typical ones are already satisfying. In contrast, diners also say that they have to ask for more toppings at Chipotle although it’s also a matter of personal preference.
But the quality of the ingredients are always topnotch so your worries about quality being sacrificed for quantity is unwarranted. You will immediately see that, indeed, the ingredients are of fresh and premium quality, from the crisp vegetables to the juicy meats.
The concept is simple, too, especially if you have been to an assembly-line type of restaurant. You make your orders via an assembly line of wait staff ready to customize your burritos, tacos, quesadillas, bowls, and nachos. You may add your choice in:
- Fiber – Rice, brown rice, pinto beans, black beans, and peppers and onions
- Proteins – Chicken, spicy chicken, steak, spicy steak, pork, spicy pork, taco meat, and beef barbacoa
- Salsa – Pico, Corn, Roja, Verde, and Wild, which have spice levels from 1 (Pico) to 10 (Wild)
- Onions and peppers, such as banana peppers and jalapeno peppers, can also be added
- Sauce – Sweet Habanero, BBQ, Ranch, and Taco, among others
- Toppings – Sour cream, lettuce, cheddar, Monterey Jack, and guacamole
You can also pick a side, such as salsa, queso, chips, or guacamole. If you choose a vegetarian meal, you will be provided with the on-the-house guacamole.
The assembly line style of ordering and the ingredients for the Mexican-inspired foods are familiar to most people who have gone to create-your-own food (e.g., pizzas and burritos) places. But the Hot Head Burritos chain distinguishes itself by making great sauces with different spice levels – and we all know how the right sauce can elevate ordinary burritos to extraordinary burritos!
The spice levels range from 1 for the Sweet Habanero and 5 for the Hot Head to 10 for the Straight Habanero. Diners can mix and match their burritos, for example, with the sauces so that each one has its own distinctive taste.
The wait staff are also helpful, friendly and efficient. Even first-time diners praise the accommodating attitude of the wait staff, from running down the list of ingredients to making suggestions about the popular combos.
The facilities are clean even when the food items can be messy to eat. The restrooms are usually well-maintained with the basic amenities for hygiene purposes, too.
The main issue apparently with Hot Head Burritos restaurants is that these places are too popular. Seats may not always be available although the staff members look in behalf of the waiting diners so the waiting time isn’t too long.
Yet another reason for becoming a regular at your nearest Hot Head Burritos is the generous rewards system. There are birthday rewards wherein the birthday celebrant receives a free item; the Earn Free Food promo where signing up means getting a free order of queso and chips followed by earning points for freebies; and Double Point Tuesdays where you can earn twice as many points. Getting free food may mean buying as many food as you can at a Hot Head Burritos place!
