Best Burrito?
By thecritic of Vancouver (376 Reviews)
Submitted Monday, July 5, 2010 - 4:11pm [Dine in]

Anytime I see a restaurant with a declaration like "best", I immediately assume that it is not the best and usually far from it. So I have driven past this place many times and never thought to stop and actually try the "best burrito". Well, I finally did with lowered expectations.

The place has a modest interior with a grass roof decoration and a mexican blanket on the wall. There is also a few tables on a street-side patio.

I ordered the chicken burrito. It comes with beans, rice, lettuce and your choice of salsa from mild to raging hot. I decided to go with green tomatillo which was medium spiciness. I took it to go.

The burrito was actually better than I expected. It was a little dry with not enough salsa but overall I did enjoy it though so I am giving it the benefit of the doubt on the food rating. Is it the best burrito in Vancouver? No, probably not.

Best Ever

This joint is definalty worth a try. I have tried many burritos but this is by far the best. The chicken has a mediterranean flavour, which is moist and alway delicious! Their burrito size is very genorous and well worth the price. You can get a gigantic burrito (which will probably be your lunch and dinner) and a drink for under $10. They also have a butterchicken burrito which stunned me at first but from the complements it got from my wife i will have to try it next time i go (which will be very soon!). They also have free wifi, a t.v (to watch your fav channels while eating) and the customer service is excellent. This place is definatly in my top fives!

Solid option

This place is a true "Mom and Pop" place. They really take care of their regulars, so if you frequent, you can expect better service each time. (I've been there five times in the last two months.)

I'd be lying to say this is the best shwarma I've had. The chicken it best when it's busy and doesn't have great shelf life, so I alway suggest going in the middle of lunch rush. (Getting known as a "cash payer" to the owner gets you VIP treatment too.) The rice they use can be a little dry, while the lettuce and sauces are always "spot on."

Overall, it's solid. If you want to eat more than you can handle and don't mind getting a little messy, then definitely give this place a shot.

Flavorful Food
By koopa of Burnaby (16 Reviews)
Submitted Sunday, September 2, 2007 - 9:12pm [Dine in]

I accidentally came across this little place. It's a combo of Mexican and Pakistani food. Interesting combo.
All the food is Halal. The food is surprisingly fresh, flavorful, and great quality. They cook the chicken greekstyle with that spinning chicken that they cut off from when a customer places an order.
The prices are pretty good, plus they have a stamp card. After 7 burritos, you get one for 50% off.
On the weekends they serve Pakistani food. I've never had a chance to go on the weekend but if the Mon-Friday (Mexican) menu is good, I'm sure the weekend menu will be just as great.
Definitely worth a look.

Best? Really? Best?
By jorgefuentes of Los Angeles, CA (1 Review)
Submitted Tuesday, April 15, 2014 - 4:59pm [Take-out]

Really? Really?? Well as you can see, I don't think they are the best burritos in town at all. This place strike me as those areas in Mexico that you don't really wanna go into and much less eat at.

I tried it because of a friend when I was in Vancouver recently and coming from LA, yes, Mexican is a weekly thing for me.

This place just doesn't do any justice at all to it's name. The food is OK, not that bad but the service was just terrible. The guy who helped us was just having a bad day or something but wasn't very helpful at all.

I would say avoid it, there aren't many good Mexican places in Vancouver, but there are definitely better ones than this one.

Awful
By amanita of Vancouver (8 Reviews)
Submitted Saturday, November 26, 2011 - 8:20pm [Dine in]

I just tried this place for the first time. It is close to my house so I thought I should finally give it a shot. Now I don't really care if a place is "authentic" or not, I just want a good burrito. This place does not have that, not even close. The vegetarian burrito was a disgrace. First off, there is no guacamole in the restaurant and there is an extra charge for sour cream (wtf?). The burrito was seriously lacking. The ingredients are all very low-quality and you don't really get much value for your money. It was a wet and sloppy mess of a burrito that literally fell apart after two bites. Mcdonald's would probably give you a better burrito than here, the only positive is that the guy behind the counter seemed friendly.

this place was great

Submitted Friday, May 8, 2009 - 12:20pm [Dine in]

I enjoyed my experience thoroughly, The staff treated me as if i owned the place and gave me a lot of fixens for my burrito.

My burrito as well as my friends was huge, that and a drink and i was pretty full so very good value in my opinion.

The place is small but has a nice feel to it, its just another one of those hole in the wall joints, reallly busy during lunch hours and stuff so thats a good sign. I am going to try and frequent this place as often as I can.

Love the Chicken Soft Tacos!
By Tommy2010 of Cambie (7 Reviews)

I've walked and biked by this little place a few times and last week while my bike was being tuned up, I decided to give it a try. Burritos and curry - interesting combo.

I ordered the chicken soft tacos and tried the mango & papaya juice. Yummy and fresh! This place is very inexpensive and a hidden gem on Broadway.

Interesting Combination
By SUNGMINCHA of Burnaby (1 Review)
Submitted Monday, March 10, 2008 - 4:20am [Dine in]

My wife, son, and I stopped by this restaurant this past Saturday because the traffic was so slow on Broadway and it was time for lunch. We were in the mood for Mexican but ended up having something quite interesting. We had the butter chicken (weekend special), chicken fajita burrito, and 3 types of tacos (beef, chicken, & veggy) in a soft shell. The portions were big and we had to ask to have 1 taco wrapped up to eat later. The owners were savvy business people decorated with minimal cost but highly functional (tv with remote for customers, large mirrors to increase illusion of space, and ice cream for those hot summer days). We were impressed with the service, quanitity & quality of food, and value. Next time I am near this place, I would consider having lunch there again.

My daughter and I felt like having mexican food and thought we'd try this place out based on previous reviews. Parking wasn't great along this section of Broadway or any of the side streets, ended parking 2 blocks away and paying a meter. It is right across the street from Mountain Co-Op Equipment. The place is very small, but it was the food we came to try and are glad we did.The aroma of the food as soon as you walked in was wonderful. I had the soft chicken tacos which were delicious. There were 3 small tacos with the chicken they cut off a rotisserie like at middle eastern eateries. It came with cheese, lettuce and salsa. My daughter had their chicken burrito whcih was just as good. Their other dishes customers were enjoying looked just as appetizing. Portions were a good size and prices decent. I believe it was $6.49 for most of their dishes. I can't wait to come back again soon!

Good Burritos, friendly staff/owner
By seekerxy of Vancouver (1 Review)
Submitted Thursday, December 27, 2007 - 3:49pm [Dine in]

Had a beef burrito which was good-very good. Very healthy size for the money. The beef was quite good, if a little bit chewy, but not fatty at all like places that have poor quality beef. All the other ingredients were great. Very friendly staff(owner?). Halal meat will be important to some people.
