The name doesn’t lie. Situated right off the side of the road, this place doesn’t stand out right away, but don’t let that fool you. The owners will take care of all of your burrito needs with their focus on both quality and quantity. People around town speak most highly of The Burrito Shack’s breakfast burritos, but don’t forget about the carne asada fries.

If you’re a sucker for Chicago-style hot dogs, Higley Hot Dog Hut needs to be your next stop. You can’t beat a Vienna Beef hot dog or brat here. Not only do they serve a great dog, they also serve tacos and shakes. Since this joint doesn’t accept credit or debit, just be sure to bring cash.
