I'll not mince words: Whole grain tortilla, Mexican rice, pulled pork, pinto beans, sour cream , cheese and hot sauce Burrito. Unwrap as you eat. Simply the best. Do it!

Tasty and gret value for money, after finishing a bowl, you'll probably be full for the rest of the day. All ingredients are tasty and good quality, can't fault it. Worth a visit!

I've had Mexican in Texas, Mexico, New York etc so I know well Taco Cabana, Chipotle, Baja Fresh and other fast, fresh Mexican. I've always found Boojums to be good, even if its a little stodgy the spices are a little heavy (fast mexican is light and fresh), but what really surprised and irritated me was that I had to...

Hi William, I'm so sorry you were disappointed with your experience at Boojum. We use authentic Mexican ingredients and prepare everything fresh in our kitchens each morning, so it is a shame that you find the food to be stodgy.

I love Boojum! The amount of food that you get on your plate is mind blowing! The succulent chicken with the sweet rice and tangy sour cream make a burrito to die for!

I enjoy Mexican as much as the next person but I don't get the boojum obsession. The food is lovely, no doubt, but not sure if it merits all the hype. Cheap and cheery perhaps - but I'm not signing up to la revoluciona!
