“Fantastico”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013

As a vegetarian with generally limited choices when travelling overseas, I absolutely relished their vegetarian burrito and regretted not having been there any earlier on prior visits to London. It was quite crowded even for an early supper, but queues move quickly. As you move sequentially past counters, your burrito swells with generous helpings of fillings/sauces/ingredients loaded on - the guacomole, in particular, was delicious. Their nacho chips were also remarkably fresh and cripsy. Highly recommended for a quick and remarkably cheap (my bill was all of 5 GBP) Mexican meal in London.

“Best burritos!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

I love this place - come here once a week at least!! fresh ingredients, burritos made to order, quick service, and not badly priced either. Everything is so tasty and flavoursome. Don't be put off by the queues...they move very quickly! Also, if you drop your business card into the fishbowl, you could win burritos for yourself and 5 mates! :)

“Excellent Mexican food in the City of London”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013 via mobile

The Fleet Street branch does very good burritos, I was delighted with how good the steak burrito was, to say it was rich, filling and satisfying would not even get close to doing it justice.

I would encourage people to eat here.

I also plan to return in the near future.

“Best Burritos in London”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

I first discovered Chilango in 2009 and have been coming regularly ever since, converting more and more people to the wonderful burrito they produce. The Chancery Lane & Upper St branches are just as excellent.

Simply put, it's the perfect burrito, regardless of what you get inside. The flavours are truly Mexican, the agua fresca is so refreshing and the guacamole is frankly, the best in the world.

Stop reading this, go try it out now!

“Really great value and delicious food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

I have eaten here twice now on the recommendation of a friend. Both times I had nachos, once with steak and once with grilled chicken. Both visits were great, delicious food, Great value for money (under £7 each time). The staff are friendly and there is a nice atmosphere. You can have soft drinks or a beer, which ever you prefer.

Highly recommend it, they do great looking salads and 'Nudos' for those that like a burrito filling but not the tortilla it comes wrapped in. Great vlaue, great food, great place!
