Milagrito, a prototype of the Milagro water Cherenkov experiment, operated from February 1997 through May 1998. With its wide field of view (>1sr) and high duty cycle it was ideally suited to a search for gamma ray bursts at TeV energies. During the lifetime of Milagrito, 54 bursts detected by BATSE were also in the field of view of Milagrito. Results of a search for TeV counterparts to these bursts will be presented.
