The Story of Burrito Craft Wanaka
One of the Original Food Trucks in town...
Owners: Julia & Marc Magee
The idea of Burrito Craft evolved on Julia & Marcs adventures around the world. They had always had a passion for cooking and burritos were their number one go-to, crowd-pleaser. When they decided to head home & settle, Wanaka was a no brainer as it was not only the place where Julia grew up but also where they first crossed paths. Marc- originally from Scotland- was in Wanaka working as a chef in 2010 when mutual friends brought them together. They arrived back in NZ in 2014 and the plan to build a Food Truck and bring their delicious burritos to Wanaka was well underway.
Everything served is made using the freshest of ingredients and made onsite daily. Every component is made from scratch to ensure the tastiest burrito around. Today, they have 2 food trucks serving central Wanaka (Brownston Street) and the growing industrial/ commercial area (Gordon Road) to keep Wanaka happy. If they are not busy taking care of their customers, then you will find them at home bringing up their two boys Findlay and Nico, made from 100% burritos!
Burrito Craft @ Brownston Street
We opened our doors to the public on Brownston St in October 2015. From there, Burrito Craft just kept growing. Within 2 years we had outgrown our original trailer and built a bigger version to keep up with demand. We are one of the longest standing food trucks in Wanaka to date and love the seasonal nature of this town. Welcoming back friendly faces year on year brings our team true happiness. See our menu here. We have always had the philosophy of providing top quality food using fine ingredients at an accessible price & fast rate.

Burrito Craft @ Ground Up Brewery
Our truck on Gordon Road opened in conjunction with Ground Up Brewery in December 2020. Here we have a completely different menu to town and it changes regularly. Check out our current menu. The trailer is the original Burrito Craft food truck and has grown with our business- we revamped this in 2019. It's really awesome to see the food truck in full action again, taking care of essential hunger needs in collaboration with such an exceptional local craft brewery. Ground Up also started out in 2015 by local adventurers and has become an awarded household name. We are stoked that our customers can finally enjoy a cold refreshing beer in a new environment with their Burrito Craft food.
