John has a longstanding reputation quality and speed of service. The "do it yourself" ordering is great. The lines are long but they move very quickly. Consistently great products. As long as I work downtown, this place will be on the short list of lunch places. As a testament to leadership, many of the employees have been there a LONG... More

OK - don't be discouraged but by the fact that you need to go into the dingy basement of the mall. Head downstairs and find Johnny's! Fun, friendly, huge portions of delicious ingredients. This is not like the cookie cutter style eateries you find on street level. For added fun, eat your beautiful burrito on the nearby Green and admire... More

Odd location but the 12 person line told me this was a good option. Did not disappoint! Great selection of fresh ingredients. Diablo sauce was a hot addition!

Co-worker recommend we go here. Went at 11:30 am and we were about the 15th in line. Love the local small town charm to this place. You can get any type of burrito you want from mild to "sign a waiver" hot. I opted for the green chile chicken burrito, which they made to order. You can choose from about... More

Though I work downtown, thus was my first visit. First of all, the guy behind the register is awesome! He takes the time to explain everything. I ordered the giant steak burrito - don't do that, I'll get to this. So I picked a wheat wrapper and the fun begins. He says to me, "you own the next 10 feet".... More

I walk past 3 taco/burrito joints just to get to Johnny Burrito. Best burritos in town (2nd place is not even close). The line is often out the door but moves quickly. I have been a customer for many years and have seen the same staff most of that time (rare in the food industry). The place is a little... More

My co-workers have been raving about Johnny Burrito, so I tried it this past week and luckily the line wasn't too long. Given the rainy weather outside I thought it would be--timing is everything. I followed my friend's lead and had the burrito without the tortilla. It is an incredibly filling lunch--no need for dinner--many choices with meat and chicken... More

I have been going to Johnny Burrito, probably since it opened. They have always been the best. First - they have always included EVERY topping in the price. There has never been an extra charge for guacamole, queso or veggies. I LOVE the chicken nacho salad - which you can get with or without chips. They always have a special... More

I don't visit JB's often but when I do I always love it! Everything is so fresh and everyone is so friendly. I tried their pork for the first time last week and that may have been my favorite to date! It was so good! They have a super hot sauce that you can ask for at the end of... More
