The establishment is located in Decatur's town square near the Brick Store Pub, adjacent to Azul Bar which is owned by the same group. The interior is decorated with exposed brick and air ducts with hanging light fixtures. The food is the same Mexican-Southwest fusion style of Moe's, but the comparisons must end there. Raging Burrito's ingredients are a bit more eclectic, and the food is incredibly fresh. I opted for a Raging Monster Burrito with Salsa Verde Pork, Sauteed Green Peppers and Onions, Green Chili Peppers, mixed cheeses, sour cream, lettuce, onions, cucumbers, salsa fresca, rice, black beans, and a spinach tortilla. The cucumbers, pork, and spinach tortilla really made this burrito enjoyable and unique. The guacamole appetizer was also fantastic.
One of the best aspects of Raging Burrito is that it offers great food alongside great beer. The tap list supports Georgia's local breweries with Hummer, IPA, 420, Blue, and a seasonal tap (currently Happy Ending) from Sweetwater and Terrapin's India Brown Ale. Other Selections included Dogfish Head 60 minute IPA, Brooklyn East India Pale Ale, and Lagunitas Hairy Eyeball. The bottle selection also included St. Bernardus Abt. 12, Spaten Optimator, and Duvel. I personally enjoyed both a Terrapin India Brown Ale and a Sweetwater IPA.

Ran across the square to check this place out after I left the Brick Sore. Very conveniently located not but 50 yards away I ran down the stairs and walked inside to check it out. Nice bar inside with a cool atmosphere. Looked like 15 or so taps and I saw Celebration, every Sweetwater imaginable, plus a few Belgians. The bottle list looked to me to be about 25 or so with mostly more common micros, well after coming from the brick store, c’mon. Walked outside and this is where this place gets set apart. Really cool patio area I would love to hang out on, made me feel like I was back at the Lani Kai in Fort Myers again, not that it was that much like a beach, just that the mood, lighting and atmosphere was very similar. Overall I thought this looked like a really cool place to hang out and I would love to spend some more time there, being across from the Brick Store I don’t know how much of an option for me that is, LOL.

Another local favorite of mine for years, located on the new and improved Square of Decatur. Raging Burrito has been in its current space for about 7 years now, long before stale burrito chains popped up on every corner in town. Although not a mega-beer bar like neighbors Brick Store Pub & Twain's, The RB is a great, no-hassle place for a good inexpensive meal with a better-than-average selection of beer. Excellent burritos with the best guacomole this side of Smyrna. Give the BBQ chicken/pork burrito and the new tacos a try.
The main area features an exposed brick hall, with funky neon lights. Old garage door on the front with outside table seating on the Square. The chill back patio is Decatur's best, seating close to 100 in a cool tropical-like setting. A 20 foot painting of Mona Lisa eating a nacho chip covers an adjacent building. At night the patio is lit up with a criss-cross of cool light bulbs. Also dog friendly, for friendly dogs.
The custom-made bar consists of poured concrete with copper plating on the outside. 16 taps + 30 or so in the bottle. Often called the #1 Sweetwater IPA account in the city, the Burrito always carries a Sierra Nevada seasonal, Dogfish Head 60, Dead Guy, Leffe, Chimay, Highland Oatmeal porter, Unibroue Ephemere and 4 other Sweetwaters. Mon-Wed calls for $9 Sweetwater pitchers, with other beer specials throughout the week. Always $3 Jagers plus an excellent selection of tequila.
Service is quick and friendly. They are knowledgeable of the beer menu offerings, but don't expect much more. Park in the back lot off of Church St, and your ticket with be validated.

The location is very close to the Decatur, GA square and a great place to stop for burritos and a great selection of Sweetwater brews. If fact you just may run into Freddy “Big Kahuna” Bensch from Sweetwater there enjoying some of Raging Burrito’s great food. They have a big selection of stylized burritos or you can customize one to suit your needs. They also have other Mexican fare such as quesadillas and chimis. The décor has southwestern colors mixed with a modern feel and a very interesting bar (steel if I remember correctly). They have 16 beers on tap, many of those taps are Sweetwater and German oriented beers. They usually have over 10 high gravity beers available in bottle and another 23 or so beers in bottle as well. The bottle selection has notables such as beers ranging from Unibroue, Duvel, Leffe, Chimay, Spaten, Piraat, and St. Bernardus. Also the parking lot behind the Raging Burrito will give you free 1 ½ hour parking with the Raging Burrito validation. If you are bar hopping this makes a good location to stop to and from The Brick Store.
