This location of Steamrollers is in Yaletown on Davie Street near Homer. Steamrollers serve a menu of west-coast style burritos called "Steamrollers". Steamrollers are unique, in that all of the ingredients are cooked exclusively with steam. The Steamrollers product line consists of vegetarian, chicken and beef Steamrollers, as well as daily specialties and our trademark Wet Burritos. We are also open early with our line of breakfast Steamrollers.
Let's get something straight. Steamrollers has never claimed to serve authentic Mexican, let alone Texmex food. In fact, the burrito itself isn't even Mexican. It's an American creation. Steamrollers just offers a intteresting spin on burritos. Steamrollers is pretty good. My friend, who claims to be a Mexican food god used to regularly talk badly about this place, calling it an 'abominaton', I have caught on several occasions dining here.
Steamrollers taste amazingly good - especially the wet ones. They are a quick, healthy, no-cook alternative and just about everyone can find one they will like. I sometimes pick one up on the way home when I drive by and there is parking out front. Most people would not think to have a Steamroller instead of a sandwich but the taste, value and variety are far better than the fast food and sandwich joint alternatives. I once suggested to my colleagues to bring in Steamrollers for a working lunch instead of the boring catered sandwiches and salads we had had most of the week. They complainingly gave in till they realized the price and taste difference - a quarter of the catering bill paired with tasty sauces and condiments! I have taken them in to client lunches - a hit even with the vegetarians.
Steamrollers is a great alternative for healthy fast food. It fills you up and you stay filled up, ahem, unlike Mickey D's.
It's kind of a wrap zone but I don't know how to explain it, but it's a bit different.
It's not a place that I would go to all the time, but it's not a bad choice once in a while.
