Budgies serves massive sized burritos and tacos for reasonable prices with your choice of tofurkey sausage, roasted potatoes or chipotle tofu. All items can be made vegan by substituting dairy with guacamole at no extra charge.
Perhaps I'm a hipster local who hangs outside of Budgies text messaging but I LOVE Budgies. I still don't get amazing service either but come on its Budgies. By the sounds of some of these reviews I can just picture a customer coming in with a grumpy face thinking they don't fit in because they're not a "hipster local". You'd have to be insane to expext 5 star service here. I crave it. It's cheap and delicious what more could you ask for. It's definitly worth a visit!!!
This is the weirdest burrito shacks I've ever been in. The walls are covered in almost creepy pastel portraits and paintings. The ambiance leads itself to a weird combination of apprehension and amusement.
The burritos are all vegetarian. Some are almost traditional and others have very un-Mexican ingredients like Tofurkey. The prices are a bit steep for burritios, but are very reasonable when you see how incredibly huge the burrito you get is.
I work in the area and have had eaten there several times. Food is always good; fresh ingredients and all vegetarian, gotta love that!! The burrito's are huge, like 2lb, really heavy and filling! You get your moneys worth for sure! I just ate there today with by BF and now they have smaller and bigger sizes (before they only had the bigger sizes)
I have never gotten sick from eating there and the staff have always worn gloves and everything is very clean. Will contiune to go and suggest you do it! Cheers!
I wish they had more types of veggies available to flavour the burritos, but the Mr Jones is tasty at $5.50, and if you can't handle lactose they will switch your cheese and sourcream for guacamole or extra salsa!
So many vegetarian options... All full of protein and tasty! where else can you have lunch and a snack or a giant lunch for $7 including tax?
The two girls working behind the counter did wear gloves and had hair tied back and clean aprons when I was there on a Thursday lunchhour.
I love love love budgies, I go there on a weekly basis. The food is always great, albeit there's a stray hair in my food every once in a while, but I do still come back. I was reading some reviews below about how they give back incorrect change. I went there again last week and paid for my $6 meal with a $20, I got home thinking that I had $14 in my wallet, but turns out I only had $9. Seems like the guy at the counter shorted me a $5. I am just wondering if it's poor math skills or on purpose, because that's not very cool. Anyways, I do still love the food but am only paying with exact change.
This place is a classic hole in the wall full of satisfying beans, salsas, condiments and laidback staff. Tasty, LARGE burritos that are perfect as a single item evening picnic or bike ride. Perhaps only ameliorated by the accompaniment of your favourite ale or lager and a nearby park. Budgies Forever!
This place is awesome. It's a cute little vegetarian burrito place and the food is amazing! It's super affordable too. One burrito will have you exploding at the wasteline, enough to last all night, especially if you're going out on the town. You should go and support local business. Mmm burrito lovin'.
