Great Hole in the Wall

Almost literally a hole in the wall, this is a neighborhood gem. Excellent mole sauce on the enchiladas. Excellent fresh guacamole. Great lunch stop if you're in the area.

A tiny restaurant and takeaway. Only a few tables and very steamy from kitchen but absolutely delicious. Burrito was the best I've had. Complimentary tortillas and salsa (spicy). Reasonable price for great food.

The first time I saw this place there was no one inside so I kept going. After reading the reviews I went back. The burritos and tacos were fantastic and HUGE! One burrito could almost do two people. The only thing that wasn't big was a side of guacamole. The burritos were flavorsome and good quality. I had the pork... More

The food was good and the staff certainly went out of their way to get what we needed with small children. The cost of what we purchased was high.

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.
