Went for lunch on Friday. The queues were mental but it was worth the wait. I had a very large burrito and my 11 year-old son had tacos - 3 tacos with different fillings. The chilli-con-carne filling was a bit too spicy for him but the others were fine. Cost is a bit high compared to other lunch options but... More

I don't normally write on these review sites but having just started work in the restaurant business myself i now realise how useful these reviews can be for not only the establishment but also for those travelling to Belfast from afar. Having spent 4 years at University in the Uk and USA i can safely say that Boojum is my... More

Despite the queue out the door there was quick service and delicious food. It was well priced - they must make the money from the drinks.

Have never had from the boojum in botanic, maybe thats the one getting all the good reviews. Was in boojum recently for a burrito. Everyone has told me that boojum has got good again so thought I would give it another go. The burrito itself was hefty & well packed. The Salsa Verde had a nice kick to it. The... More

My first visit for lunch. The queue was about 15 mins long and extended down the street. They have leaflets inside which explain how to order. I had a chicken burrito and can of come for £6.35. The portion size was good. I didn't finish as I was full but I enjoyed it. I thought it was a bit overrated... More

I don't normally review places twice, but the ongoing battle for Belfast's best burrito is worth commenting on. Since my last review, I've experienced the rise and fall of a competing Mexican eatery - Baja Cantina in East Belfast - which started out so strongly that I briefly considered it to be superior to the old favourite, Boojum. Unfortunately, Baja... More

Fantastic grub at an affordable price. Portions sizes are decent. The only negative issues are the slow queues at peak times and some of the untidy tables. A suggestion is to extend the opening hours and to accept credit/debit cards like all other restaurants.

Boojum is by far the best burrito you'll get in Belfast, in my opinion. So much more flavour than the others out there. A very regular customer. It's worth the wait in the sometimes long queue

I try to get down to this place as often as I feasibly can. The food is absolutely fantastic and very well priced for the portion sizes (which I personally think have reduced ever so slightly over the years but not to any detrimental extent). The only potential downside is the immense popularity of the restaurant, which can result in... More
