Monster sized Buritos built in front of you from fresh ingredients, slathered in your choice of Guacamole,Cream cheese and Salsa served with a smile. I recommend adding the hot Chilli sauce (at your own risk.) Be prepared to queue out of the door, this place is always busy, but well worth the wait. Bostin'

Wevd thought a quick spicy Mexican lunch would be pleasant. What a mistake, the meat was soft and tasteless, the peppers were soft and tasteless, and the sauce was pretty tasteless too. The overall effect was soggy, sloppy and unpleasant.

If you're thinking of fast foot in belfast go here. Food tastes amazing. Great value too. A burrito and beer at boojum is probably my favourite thing to do in belfast. Love it.

This place has been my favourite eatery in Belfast for around 2 years now, countless stamps and several "Boojum addict" T shirts serve testament to the quality of the establishment. Not before nor since I have discovered Boojum have I felt the desire to eat somewhere so frequently and I have a number of friends who feel the same. The... More

Located in the University Quarter, if there's a line outside, it means they're open. The good news is that the line is fast moving, the staff are pleasant and efficient, the food is delicious and affordably priced. The queue isn't wrong. I have a vegetarian burrito, which is well-spiced and hefty.

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

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
