“Authentic Mexican Food, well recommended, I will be back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2014

Son brought me here because he’s addicted to the food. I’m a picky critic with Mexican because I live in San Diego. The hot sauce is perfect, chips were warm and crisp. I had a 3 layered tortilla special with chicken and beef covered with melted cheese and ranchero. The beef was not waxy, and the chicken was moist and seasoned just enough for my taste. The guacamole was equal if not better than those served back home. What I learned is my son knows authentic Mexican food, and I think I know where he learned.

“Below Average”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014

The food was below average, there was no flavor and it just wasn't good. I don't understand what the people who reviewed this so highly were tasting. The service was also mediocre at best. There was no atmosphere, no music or anything. Definitely would not recommend.

“Al does a great job”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2014

We were visiting from Chicago and tired of seafood. What better than a great burrito and friendly people. Al does a great job and personally told us the story of his place. If you like Mexican food done well, then you'll like Burritos Mexican Grill.

“EAT AT AL'S”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2014

We've driven by this restaurant hundreds of times and always wanted to try it. The outdoor facade has always intrigued us. When we went back to Siesta Key for our wedding we finally made it in... thank goodness we did! The food was fantastic, the atmosphere was friendly, and the owner, Al, was very welcoming and attentive. Absolutely amazing food. Try the atomic burrito... you'll be happy you did. And the guacamole.... outstanding.

“Great burritos!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2013

Easily among the best burritos we ever had in a restaurant.
The food was tasty and not dry at all.
My only bad comments would be that the margarita was a little soft and that the hot salsa was just not hot enough. But other than that, it is definitely one of the best Mexican diner I had in a very long time.
