Having read the good reviews, we tried Great Burrito. Loved the salsa and guacamole. The burritos and quesadillas were good, not great. Very nice staff!

Rich in flavour, well built, oh and very big! We love this as a default burrito place. We normally get it delivered. It's always GREAT, literally. As a local, I confirm my guests and local friends also like it. It's easy to miss this place with the small exterior. Casual place.

My family and I were in NYC for a wedding. We stayed at the Lucerne Hotel and decided to have a few meals in the vicinity. I used TripAdvisor :) and discovered that this little restaurant was just across the street. The door is unassuming and the place itself underwhelming—but don't be deceived. The exterior belies the quality and deliciousness... More

This unassuming little cafe produced the most amazing burritos that I've ever had. We ate in - there are only about 5 tables available - but they are very popular, and several locals popped in for take-aways. And it's no surprise - they are very reasonable in price, and as for the burritos - they were vast! But they were... More

Really, really love their taco selection. It was late and I just wanted something small but tasty, and ordered a spinach taco right before they closed. It was a really good size, and for $4, you really can't beat that. They have something like 8 to 10 different tacos from which to choose, so if you're really craving a taco,... More

We walked right past Great Burrito even though we were looking for it - tiny, but a couple of tables & we ate inside. Good service, terrific food. My 14 yr old son rates this as one of the best burritos ever.

Just a small place with no frills, but the food was great, no alcohol though. The guacamole was fab with the nachos and the burritos were huge, couldnt eat a whole one.

If you love Mexican food and have a hearty appetite, check out the Great Burrito Mexican Kitchen on Amsterdam and W. 79th Street!

We come here a lot. The food is FRESH and good. The meals come with chips and salsa. I had the chicken burrito with black beans, lettuce, and tomatoes/salsa. Great value for $12. Good portion size too. Great service, and friendly waitstaff. Cash Only but pretty inexpensive plates for the UWS restaurants!!
