It’s hard to miss the chuckwagon-style drive-up just east of Kipling on 44th Avenue in Wheat Ridge -- especially in the mornings, when there’s a crowd clamoring for the cheap but filling breakfast burritos that Big Mama’s is known for. The eatery opens early and closes by 2 p.m., catering exclusively to breakfast and lunch crowds who crave big burritos, as well as all the usual suspects from most Mexican-restaurant lineups (quesadillas, chips and salsa, nachos and tacos), all at the affordable prices you’d expect from any drive-up joint. Big Mama’s Burritos is like a south-of-the-border-influenced, exclusive-to-Colorado Tastee-Freez.
