We had burritos. You get a very large one, loaded with fresh toppings. Other choices are fajitas, burrito bowls and tacos, all for the same price. My complaint...a smaller size choice would be a great option as this was a lot of food.

As someone who loves Mexican food I absolutely love this place. The burritos are delicious and that is the reason you always find yourself queuing half way up the street to get one.

This place is amazing to grab something quick and tasty on the go. As a student on a budget, the amount you get for a £5 is unbelievable and after a few, you seem to get withdrawl symptoms from not having one. My favourite place to eat in Belfast. Staff are amazing and the food is top notch! Love the... More

Been eating in this place since they first opened on Botanic, now I eat at both but mainly the city centre one as Botanic has always got a queue out the street. I feel this place is gradually going downhill, I always order chicken and i have noticed that maybe the cuts of meat they are getting are cheap because... More

Hey, Thanks very much for taking the time to review Boojum and I'm sorry to hear that you didn't have the experience you have come to expect when you were visit us. We haven't changed the cut of meats that we use, perhaps the chef who was preparing it that day needs further training. Could you email us at emma@boojummex.com... More

I was so excited to visit Boojum after rave reviews yet when I did, I left and vomited the whole lot up later that evening. It tasted off and was nothing special. The only upside was the friendly staff and the portion size for the money.

Been here countless times with my loyalty card maxed out, has to be the best burritos in Northern Ireland. The staff are great and the food is of a fantastic quality. Only minus I would say is that they do not have enough seating to cater for the amount of diners. That being said almost all of the dishes available... More

Absolutely love boojum. It's great, fresh, fast food at a reasonable price (£5-6 for a huge burrito). There's usually a queue out the door, which shows it's popularity, but they operate in a production line fashion putting your food together, so you never have to wait too long. I can't recommend it enough!

If by chance you show up to boojum Botanic and there's not a queue out the door - someone's watching over you! Good food, quite expensive but handy and quick.

This place makes incredible burrito for approximately 5-6 pounds. I already recommended the place to 5 friends who also really enjoyed their burrito. Don't be expecting anything fancy. It is a good quality fast food.

Today I discovered a hair in my beef burrito to say I'm disgusted would be a understatement. I won't be back ever again! I've taken a photo which I will be sharing on twitter for all to see!

Hey Ryan, I have only just received word of this review now but I have been informed that you have sorted this out with Emma. I would also like to personally apologise for this and let you know that we take hygiene very seriously and have strict procedures. Unfortunately this has just been a mistake and once again I apologise.... More
