Nothing special.

Yeah big fat wraps, just a shame that there was hardly any meat or chicken in them, I think my partner had about 4 small pieces of chicken in hers and I a little more in mine. Very expensive for what they were, certainly won't be going again or recommend, especially when you compare what you can... read more

Both were great its never busy i guess people dont know about them. i love chipotle burritos in usa and since they are not there i tried it. it was absolutely delicious and great ingredients...

The burritos are basically good and a great selection of ingredients. We paid $55 ARS for a burrito stuffed with goodies. Only thing I would suggest is spicier sauces! We have found Argentine food to be somewhat bland...so get the hot sauce here and ask for extra.

This burrito would not pass in the states. Too watery, not enough flavor, and a small meat portion. It was 50 Argentine pesos for a burrito and a coke (more expensive than any parilla sandwich I have had yet). So is it a good burrito, no. Is it a good break from Argentine food. Most certainly. People compare it to... More

Since I discovered CBC, I have eaten there everyday. The staff is super friendly and there are normally samples by the door--- so you really have nothing to lose. Check it out! Their burritos and tacos are delicious but if you're feeling guilty--their salads are a great option as well.

We were a bit tired after our first day in Buenos Aires so just wanted to pick up something quick without having to resort to a McDonald's or Burger King. We found a perfect solution with CBC. The set-up is not too dissimilar to Chipotle, a chain based in the USA which is like the Subway of burritos. If you're... More

I was a bit tired of some of the more bland options in Buenos Aires, so I thought I'd give CBC a try. The burrito was large (good), but the meat and toppings were rather dry and flavorless (not good). The super spicy hot sauce really saved the burrito, but the price was a bit too much for what you...

The restaurant itself is small and there is no luxury there but the burritos are fine. There are a lot of ingredients to choose from, price was OK and my burrito was quite big!

They ran out of CHIPS! Wasn't a bad burrito, just wasn't awesome for 37 or whatever pesos that it cost. If you are missing home it would be a good choice, but not if you are just passing thru. We were the only people in the downtown location at 7pm on a Saturday, so you might want to visit the... More

Staying in San Nicolas

Neighborhood Profile
San Nicolas
Immersed in the sound of honking horns and the footsteps of busy office workers, the Microcentro area of San Nicolás is where visitors will encounter the true hustle and bustle of Buenos Aires, walking down streets lined with office buildings and banks. The financial district is well-known for its vibrant atmosphere and unstoppable rhythm during office hours. After dark, the hubbub and migrates to Corrientes Ave., where theater lovers might start their evening at a play and end it in one of the many traditional pizzerias nearby. During the day, Corrientes is known for its many bookshops and classic cafés, which are located just minutes away from some famous landmarks, like the Obelisco, Avenida 9 de Julio, and the Teatro Colon.
