Description: Ottawa residents now have an authentic gourmet Burrito shop they can call their own. Come to Burrito gringo and smell, see and taste the difference of fresh and homemade cooked food; all prepared from scratch in our own kitchen. Our motto is simple; Slow Homemade Food... Fast. Where it takes us a whole lot of time to prepare the food, but then we are able to serve it and customize it the way you like it in a short time. Preparation. Preparation. Preparation. We are up with the sun, dicing cilantro, chopping tomatoes, juicing limes, scooping out avocados, simmering beans, seasoning meats, blending salsas, baking desserts, braising beef and pork, and grilling steak and chicken to perfection. Almost all of the food we serve is made in-house from scratch and by hand. We use the freshest and finest ingredients to make our food; with no processed ingredients, additives or preservatives. We have no freezer or microwave in our restaurant. Our beans are slow cooked and never come out of a can. Even our cookies, we make them with real butter. We choose to juice fresh lemons and limes, not because it's easy, but because we know we can all tell the difference. We are not part of a big chain; we are family owned and local to Ottawa. We are dedicated to serving the freshest and tastiest food. We purchase all of our food and supplies from Ottawa based businesses. We hope you will come and visit us soon.

Burrito Gringo is one of my favourite places to go for burritos, quesadillas and everything else Mexican. The restaurant can be hit or miss depending on who is preparing your food it's always going to taste amazing it's just a matter of how big it will be I give it 4 1/2 stars.

I can't remember who took me here the first time but I can't stop going back. The ingredients are made in house. The food is fresh, fast and fantastic and it keeps me going back! I didn't eat dinner before my flight just so I could go on my way to my hotel. Staff are super friendly as well. You guys are doing Mexican right in my opinion!

Was around Little Italy on a day when just about everything around seemed closed as it was a day after New Years Day. Was starving from a long trip from home and had seen this restaurant so many times and thought of visiting it.

The staff were amazing and very accommodating. Made sure our needs were met and were so cheerful and easy to deal with.

Ordered a small veggie burrito, a small and a large veggie quesadilla and a burrito salad.

First the Quesadillas-the stuffing everything you want and tons of it packed. So much that one can't list to eat. Cheese and lots of it. The toppings all fresh except the three salsa's. They seemed not store made. All else seemed like it was made right there.

The burrito same. Filled to the brim and grilled perfectly. Didn't skimp on Guacamole.

The burrito salad was again amazing, toms of beans, rice, tomatoes, guacamole, salsa and all other fixings. Both the burrito and salad were made vegan and the lady put the toppings extra as there was no cheese or sour cream. Well made.

If they do the same on every visit the place is go for burrito in Ottawa.

Our favourite local take-out joint... We describe it like a Mexican subway, where you pick your shell (hard or soft taco, tortilla, or salad bowl) and load up with all the delicious toppings you want. Great value, as even the small burrito size is stuffed full! We usually get a regular size burrito out taxi bowl and split it. Kids meal gets you a smaller portion drink and some nacho chips on the side for under $6. The ambiance for dining is take-out joint... But they always play good Latin music. Lines move quickly. Parking is tight, in the lot out front and exiting onto Bronson can take patience sometimes.

Fresh home cooked food and knowledgeable staff is there to help the customers with various choices and matches. Although it is in middle of busy area but you can still able to find a table to enjoy a meal with your family/friends. Budget pricing and large selection will satisfy your dietary needs along with your taste buds.
