5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2011

Great place for a quick lunch. The tamales are fresh made in house and are a must try.

“UNfriendly, UNtidy & UNappealling”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2011

We will not be returning to Red Burrito, ever.
The meat was dried out and the chicken had gristle bits in it.
The salsa tasted only of strong onion. The server was busy making salsa and made it clear to us that we were inconveniencing him. Also, we found one booth that had a clean table.
It explains why we were the only people in the place on a Friday night at 7 pm.
Come on, is it really that difficult to make a good burrito?

“Great place for a quick lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2009

This is not a sit-down restaurant with waiters/waitresses. You place your order at the counter and they prepare your burrito/burrito in a bowl for you - booths available. Very casual. I usually get a burrito in a bowl with shredded chicken (very tasty), black beans, salsa, rice, fresh guacamole (yummy), cheese, cilantro etc. Quite good. Cost is less than 6 dollars. They also serve tamales that are pretty good.
Pretty good for Canadian Mexican. Big servings but price can go up quite a bit if you add fresh guacamole and fresh nacho chips.
