“Dublins best Burrito!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2013

Burritos and Blues located on Wexford Street offers affordable and delicious Mexican food. It is fast food but greasy and disgusting. With a wide range of options such as burritos, fajitas, and vegetarian alternatives.
For a tenner you can get a decent tasty lunch/dinner perfect for students as they also offer a student deal (€5:50 for burrito and a can). There is also franchises on south Anne Street (just off Grafton Street) and on the Quays.
I have tried most of the competitors in the city centre and they’re all quite good but none of their burritos beat B&B’s famous ‘Silver Bullet’ as it never disappoints.

“Oh goodness, no.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

It's difficult to convey the extent to which this place is an insult to food, joy, and this glorious city with the standard review format. So, I've decided to express the profound disappointment and burgeoning existential horror this "burrito" bowl evoked in me with some word association:

Cheese: Plastic. Doesn't melt. Sad. Fluorescent white.
Meat: Gristle. Chewy. Uncomfortably chewy.
"Salsa": No, it is not.
Lettuce: Paper. Soggy. Old. Urban decay.
Guacamole: Turgid. Brown. Death. Tasteless.

The only thing sadder than the thought that you have to eat this approximation of food because you made the grave error of paying for it, and there's no going back now, are the looks on the staff's faces. They know how horrible it is. Just like you will, if you're ever so drunk that you mistake this place for a legitimate restaurant. If you're ever out and you see Burritos and Blues, and you're momentarily taken in by the bright colors and the promise of artfully spiced grease, stop. Turn yourself in any direction. Walk five to ten minutes. You will run into a good burrito place, and be quite embarrassed that you didn't think to go to that one, whichever brand it may be, in the first place.

“Decent Burritos”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

Good spot for something to eat on the go. Food is about average as far as burrito places go. Will most likely call here again when looking for something quick, cheap and filling.

“Delicious burritos!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

You can customise your own burritos or quesadillas. Staff was friendly & the service was good. It was great!
