“Best spot in town for a burrito ”

John Juan Burger & Burrito
Ranked #43 of 2,855 Restaurants in Ottawa
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: US$5 - US$8
Cuisines: Mexican
Description: Ottawa residents now have an authentic gourmet Burrito & Burger shop they can call their own. Come to JOHN JUAN Burger & Burrito 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.

John Juan is very similar to Burrito Gringo. The ingredients are fresh and tasty, the portion sizes are generous and the staff is pleasant. I had a small vegetarian burrito and it was more than enough, and I'm a big eater. My husband had a small chicken burrito, which he enjoyed.
We didn't try the burgers, but saw others ordering them and they were huge. The fries looked good as well.
I would go back.

We had the pulled beef burrito...amazing. This meat is hard to find in any restaurant these days because it takes hours to prepare. Home made fried beans also a rarity.

Brought my sister to check out this authentic Mexican restaurant and I feel it's important to re-review a previously visited place. Continuity of great burritos and service make this a real go to repeat experience.
