A1A Burrito Works Taco Shop

A1A Burrito Works Taco Shop Whew! Say that 3x fast! I was introduced to this restaurant as The Taco Shop but have since joined most locals in calling it Burrito Works. You can pick your preferred name. It’s a chill place like that.

St. Augustine Beach’s Burrito Works location

 

If you’re dining at the St. Augustine Beach location, you can eat on the screened porch, at one of 2 or 3 counter seats inside or at the counters & picnic tables outside- BYO bugspray or pray for a breeze if you’re there at sunset.  Or you could walk across A1A and picnic on St Augustine Beach- you wouldn’t need napkins if you ate close enough to the water!

They’re not joking when they say this St Augustine restaurant has the “Hottest Tacos on A1A”.  The last step in your order is to state your heat tolerance on a 1-10 – the default is definitely spicy.

What will this tortilla become? A quesadilla? UFO? Burrito?

Burrito Works’ Tacos

Dad & I tried the Mexican UFO($7.50) – crunchy taco meets cheesy deliciousness wrapped in a soft tortilla- with locally made tempeh{delish}, my hubs enjoyed the fish tacos {crunchy} and the kiddos had tacos {some soft, some crunchy, some beans & some fish, all a tad too spicy- should’ve said no spice for them!}.

UFO is massive but a fun diversion from the usual Photo Cred: Yelp

There are 4 Burrito Works Taco Shop locations- 2 in St. Augustine. They’re just as tasty on St. George Street (and you can write on the walls there!) but we love the beachy vibe that accompanies the as-you-like-it burritos and tacos at the beach.

Small sign, big flavor.

The beach location’s phone number is hard to find (904-217-7451)  and the restaurant can be, too, since the sign is small.  It’s worth slowing down for.
