Burritos beat out tacos because they're way more versatile. Breakfast, lunch or dinner, there's a burrito for that. Not only that, a burrito can encompass a huge variety of cuisines in ways tacos cannot. You got Korea bbq burritos, sushi-rritos, pho-rritos and everything else in between. The taco's simplicity is also its downfall—you just can't do as many things with it.
Better yet, the burrito is just easier to eat. The tortilla wrapping makes it a no-fuss food. If you gotta run, the food's already prepackaged—just wrap up the foil and you're good to go.
Others say tacos deserve to be king. It takes everything good about burritos (the meat) and dumps the rest. Let's be real, everything else in the burrito is filler. You don't need the rice, the beans, sour cream or anything else. Tacos get right to the point. Better yet, tacos give you the opportunity to mix and match so you can get the variety you want—or just all al pastor, because we know that's what you really want.
