Hot Headed - Check it and see...

Friday was the day for H - for lunch it was Hot Head Burritos and for dinner it was Hahana Beach

Hot Head occupies the spot formerly held by Fatburger on Madison in Oakley. I was kinda sad to see the Fat go - I thought the burgers were good.

It's very Chipotle-ish - you can get tacos, burritos, etc... but you can also get nachos. The meats don't look or smell as delicious as Chipotle. The rice they put in the bowl has no cilantro. The beans look sad. Also - they don't have extra veggies other than the pepper/onion. That's my one complaint about Chipotle - I like Moe's for the mushrooms and other veggies that they have!

They have similar toppings with a couple of additions. They also are known for their sauce options - all the way from mild to hot head.

Larry got the steak tacos - I had a bite at the end. The shell was stale and the meat was dry. Meh.

I got the "Lil Bowl" with shredded pork. The pork was good. The guac was meh. I liked being able to get taco sauce on it.

And it was Good Friday and we saw these folks walking up and down Madison. Only in the 'Nati. Good for them - that takes some cahones. It's one thing to wear a cross on your neck - it's another to carry it down a major roadway in broad daylight!

Why Should You Go? Well if you couldn't tell by my lackluster descriptions - I wasn't too excited. There is absolutely no reason for me to go back here. It wasn't bad - it just wasn't Chipotle.

Hot Head Burritos on Urbanspoon


  1. Yours is about the third review I've read that declared Hot Head as being average at best. I'll stick with Chipotle.

  2. I've not had anyone say anything nice about them.


    I really love Chipolte (except for the price). :)

    The Moe's at Crestview must boil their meat because its utterly tasteless and the veggies are limp from being over cooked.

    Q---how do you spell the other one? Qudbo? I can never remember how to spell it. There I found the meat/veggies to be average but my friend thought the sauce options were fantastic.

    Chipolte has less spray on sauce options but just better quality ingredients. Fresh and cooked in front of you.

    Chippy is still my fav.


  3. I got a fever of a hundred and three

  4. Love hot head comparing it to chipotle is fair,however Just like I crave different pizza chains at different times I crave chipotle & hot head. I love chipotle guacamole better but HH has WAY better chicken & sauce choices & great queso.
