I ate here a lot when I was in grad school. Went the other day, and it was just as good as it used to be. A great place to get a giant custom burrito. Tons of choices for meat and tortillas. Usually a line, but it's worth it.

There's always a small line because they are that good. They serve quickly and every burrito I've tried so far has been awesome: breakfast, lunch and dinner!

The huge burritos served here are filling, but of average quality. But if you are looking for a fast Mexican food place, this may be the place for you. And, the service is good.

Big City always comes through with its green chile sauce, and very good burritos. Tuesdy night is a big special night so the line is long....

This place has been around for a LONG time! The staff is friendly, but you have to know what you want to order! It reminds me of Chicago! No muss, no fuss burritos! The "super" will fill your tummy!

Always delicious, this hole-in-the-wall place on College Avenue often has lines out into the street. Come hungry - the build-your own burritos are huge (and tasty).

Everyone is always talking about how good this place is, yeah, fine, I'll try it. WOW, I get it now. I ordered a child size burrito and could have eaten off of it for the whole day, if I had not inhaled it all at one sitting. Delicious.

I highly recommend the bay leaf chicken burrito on the spinach tortilla. Excellent with black beans and pico de gallo. I love the food here. My only complaint is the long wait at lunchtime (due to popularity). But it's worth it. Only other pet peeve is that there are occasionally flies in the restaurant. Annoying, but they must also love... More
