Whether you're after a late night snack, or a fresh and tasty lunch, burritos can often hit the spot. So much goes into a great burrito, from the meat, to the tortilla, to the range of fresh salsas on offer, so what is the best burrito combo? We're looking for Melbourne's best burrito bar, we've got a few on the list but we need your help in finding the best. Let us know where you go to bag a burrito, and why they taste so great.

High Tech Burrito is a burrito bar that means business. You can choose from chicken, steak, pork, or beans, or throw a whole load in there together, then you choose your rice, salsas, and more. You can make your burrito as big or as small as you like. If you're after something different then why not try their 'high tech burritos'. These are burritos with a different flavour, think ones like 'thai chicken', 'spicy cajun', or the 'breakfast burrito'. These options combine flavours from around the world and add in a Mexican twist, you might find yourself coming back to the old classics, but these are definitely worth a try.

Salsa's have stores throughout Australia, and you'll find a large amount of these around Melbourne. Their burritos are their biggest product, choose a regular burrito or choose the 'undone' version and try a burrito in a bowl. Salsa's offer tasty options like the California Salad or the Baja Steak, and then there are some stranger ones like the Chicken and Veg, complete with broccoli and zucchini. They don't give you the option to customise your burrito like some places, but they've got some pretty good flavour combinations sorted out already.

Fiesta Mexican isn't technically a burrito bar, this Mexican restaurant serves up a huge range of Mexican cuisine. They deserve a mention anyway, not necessarily for having the best burritos in Melbourne, but for possibly having the most expensive. At an average of $23 you can try one of their Burrito Especiales, a tortilla with lettuce, chilli sauce, sour cream, cheddar cheese and your choice of filling. Tennis fans can choose between the Hewitt Burrito or the Agassi Burrito. While most burrito bars across Australia serve up a tasty fresh burrito for around $10, you'll have to decide whether these are worth the price tag.

Let us know if you have the place where we can track down Melbourne's best burrito. Whether it comes down to the tastiest tortillas, or the freshest corn or mango salsas, we want all the details and your opinions on the state of burritos in Melbourne. Before you road test a few options make sure you check out High Tech Burrito's guide to eating one of these delicious mexican mouthfuls.

I love salsas, quick and tasty and at a good price too. Become a member and on your birthday you get a FREE burrito - sweet deal.

For some reason Mexican food is always really expensive here in Melbourne. It seems disproportionate compared to other cuisines when considering what you get for your dollar.

I just want lots of cheap Mexican food, is that such a bad thing?

Mad Mex on Chapel Street. I love their vegetarian burritos and my partner loves their steak burritos. A definite winner!
