The only reason I give less than excellent for this restaurant is because it is in a strip mall and a little on the old side...it seems retrofitted for another space and has an unusual layout. Now, for everything else - I can't think of many other places where I can get better Mexican fare fast and cheap with the... More

Michael the guy that prepared our food recommended the the chipolte chicken burrito. It is a little spicy so I tried it. It was excellent. The... More

Stopped at Urban Burrito on Merrimon Ave today for lunch as they were listed as dog friendly. The restaurant is on the upper level of a strip shopping center. Outdoor seating is on the concrete balcony. It is ok but has no real ambiance at all. The food was basic. I had a salad special that was a mix of... More

I have gone to Urban Burrito for many years and they are one of the most consistent "Fast food" places in all of Asheville. Their chips and salsa is always fresh and the food never disappoints. Does miss this gem.

Always consistent for getting quick Mexican food. Nice that they have so many vegetarian options including tofu.

Found this place on tripadvisor. Great food at affordable prices served quickly. Quality fresh ingredients served in a very casual atmosphere. Not very authentic Mexican but very good and worth a slight detour off the from the downtown area. We were there on a Tuesday evening and they had some sort of special for kids. I think it was a...

Urban Burrito is the place to go for great burritos. Two of my favorite menu items are the Jerk Chicken Burrito and the Fiesta Chicken Salad. The fresh salsa bar is great and the pineapple salsa is the best. Prices are very reasonable and portions are large. Chain burrito restaurants do not come close to being as good as this... More

My husband and I enjoy this restaurant because the food is great and there is a huge amount of choice. We liked the other location and are sorry they closed but are glad this one is still around. I always get the baja fish tacos. Very reasonably priced.

My boyfriend and I stop here every time we visit Asheville. The food is amazing with gigantic burritos at a great price! The people are always very friendly. Free refills on drinks and different self serve salsas to choose from (try the pineapple!). Ive never tried the tofu but they have many vegetarian options. So if your feeling some mexican... More
