When Matt Hinton announced that his Bell Street Burritos restaurant in West Midtown would close in August, he also announced that he was opening a location in the Irwin Street Market in the Old Fourth Ward, right next to the entrance to the Eastside Trail of the Beltline. So it felt less like closing than it felt like moving.
Recently, USA Today ranked Bell Street burritos in the top 10 in the nation, and you can find these folded and wrapped packages of deliciousness at the Irwin Street Market location in the Old Fourth Ward, and on Edgewood Avenue at Bell Street, a location better known the Sweet Auburn Curb Market.
Specializing in great burritos, tacos, quesadillas, and tamales, Bell Street Burritos is the perfect stop after you walk the Beltline from Piedmont Park to the Old Fourth Ward, or just the place to grab something to munch on the 2.5 mile trail if you’re heading in the opposite direction.
Friday is tamales day at Bell Street Burritos, and you can expect a line through the door from lunchtime, and if you go for dinner, be prepared for the tamales to be sold out. They’re that good.
