Honkin' Huge Burritos is Portland's longest-running food cart, located in Pioneer Courthouse Square in downtown Portland, Oregon. Shelly Sorenson has been making these gargantuan burritos at the cart -- which is also known as Shelly's Garden -- for over 20 years.
There are three different burrito sizes: small ($6.25), medium ($6.75), and honkin' ($7.25). One can also get a burrito salad, which also probably pleases the gluten-free crowd since giant flour tortillas are generally used.
All burritos and "burrito salads" here are vegetarian, containing refried pinto beans, fresh Spanish rice, cheddar cheese, guacamole, romaine lettuce, tomato, salsa, and choice of sour cream or non-fat yogurt. I went with the Honkin' burrito (of course), but nixed the sour cream or yogurt option. Shelly really cooks that tortilla up, with dark toasted spots all over the tortilla. You can get hot sauce added to your burrito, and I chose the spiciest option, a habanero sauce.

For the price, the Honkin' burrito is one heck of a deal. If you have a huge appetite and not a lot of money, this is the place to hit up. Pretty healthy stuff, especially when compared to many of the other items I've eaten over the years.
It's a cart with a large loyal following and does one thing very well. I'm sure this cart will be around for many more years to come. 8/10
