Yummy casual Mexican

Where to begin? First of all, do not be mislead by appearance. Yea, it's in a strip mall and the sign isn't fancy. Well, you're going to get great food and leave with both arms and both legs. My mom and I ordered burritos-kind of a make your own. They have special combinations which you just... read more

The wife and I happened across this place as we were driving down the road looking for someplace to eat, as we were leaving Asheville. I'm sure glad the wife spotted this place as the food is some of the best Mexican food we have had. The staff (Daniel - home from college for Thanksgiving break) was helpful and friendly,... More

We were in Asheville two nights & ate Mexican both nights. We shared a super-huge ridiculous burrito. It was SO GOOD!!!! We tried a different place the next night, but I wish we had returned to this place. The atmosphere is less than desirable. Very plain. Too loud music for my personal taste, but the food was absolutely outstanding!

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

I have eaten at Urban Burrito several times on Merrimon Ave. The food is always delicious. And the staff is wonderful. Tracy and I ate there yesterday 08SEPT2014 while we were in the area. 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
