“Best burritos in London”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

Arrived just before mid-day to find that the Lamb Barbacoa wasn't yet ready so the staff gave me a bowl of tortilla chips and a pot of hot sauce to guzzle down while I waited. The lamb was well worth the wait. It was lean, tender and extremely tasty. I had it in a generously filled burrito with all the trimmings. I've never had a bad run at this place though I rate the New Row and King's Cross ones above the others.

“Super introduction to the burrito.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012 via mobile

Mouth still has the post burrito tingle. Tasty, quick and very good.

Staff are lovely and helpful.

Sitting at the window looking at a rainy Bedforbury and the passing brollies, I'm dry, full and happy.

“Poor”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

These Mexican chains in London are generally decent but this Benitos Hat is poor. Overcooked bland ingredients and jobsworth ignorant staff.

“A delicious lunch option.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

My friends and I have enjoyed many lunches here, either eating in or taking away. When we eat in, we always enjoy the odd margarita too.

I feel that compared to Chipotle, the closest alternative, Benito's Hat offer better value, even before you consider their loyalty card. The meat is tasty and they offer generous portion sizes. I would happily recommend this venue for a casual Covent Garden lunch, and look forward to many more.
