April 2 (that's today) just happens to be National Burrito Day.

So we've rounded up 12 great burritos from area restaurants across the city for you to enjoy. Some have been around for a long time, others are newer to the scene. But all of them are locally-owned spots that could use your support.

So whether you choose to order a burrito from one of these restaurants (or another of your favorites), know that your order is making a difference for someone else.
