Ionic Burritos (Sonic Burritos): Burritos
Consumed by Remi, May 23rd 2007
Ionic Burritos is, despite its name, not so much about “classic” burritos as it is about wraps. Yet burritos is what they call it, so I suppose that should be good enough for me.
Located just north of the Gonzaga campus on Hamilton, Ionic Burritos serves up wraps in your choice of six different tortillas. You have a selection from a menu—Thai, fish, Cajun, Jamaican Jerk, etc.—or you can customize your own burrito. I felt pretty basic during my last visit and went with the Thai. Now to digress for a second, what’s up with Spokane and Thai-ing things up? It’s right up there with the ahi.
Stereotypical as it is, I have to admit it was a tasty choice, all wrapped in a 12” tortilla. A bit of chicken and some spicy peanut sauce made it a meal that will hold anybody through the day. The price is definitely affordable too.
One word of warning—the place is heavily trafficked during lunch hour, so make sure you have plenty of time. It’s definitely worth it.
