The burritos had fresh ingredients, are custom made and well-filled, delicious and fresh pico de gallo and fillings and great value for money! I had a vegetarian burrito and it was perfectly toasted - not burned yet crusty! This is my new favorite place. There...is little seating space so this is good for a pickup.More

We are here for the first time. Possibly not too authentic however the flavours were fresh and tasty. Staff were lovely. Price was reasonable too - good quality food and flavours. Perfect food for a hungry person stop off. Would go back.

My wife and I had burritos for lunch. Like much of the Mexican food here in Edinburgh it just did not taste right. It’s typical of Edinburgh Mexican places that one or more ingredients will be things you would never find in Mexican food. Here...it was possibly more than one. Not sure what it was (probably tablet or Irn Bru) but there was something sickly sweet that stood way out and just made the burritos taste off. A little research could correct this. Otherwise the ingredients seemed fresh. Service was scattered and a bit surly. Lots of room for improvement.More

For £4 you can get just about the best nachos I have had. They have a small, simple menu but it won't disappoint! Burritos and quesdillas the size of your head will fill you up no end. If you haven't been here, make the trip,...you won't regret it!!More

Best burrito I’ve ever had! Got the small veggie burrito for £4, it certainly wasn’t small and packed so much flavour. What a bargain, it’s rare to find something so substantial for the price. Staff was so friendly too! Thanks again guys.

Fresh tasty ingredients, great value for money, nice staff, guacamole is so tasty. They keep it simple and they do it extremely well. All hail Taquito, the best burritos in Edinburgh. The bigger, fancier burrito outlets do not come close.

Been in here quite a few times as it’s right next to where we live. Best burritos ever! The small is still massive and really filling. Great value for money and friendly staff! A must visit if in the Tollcross area.

Best burrito in Edinburgh by far. Place is small and overcrowded but well worth the wait. Would recommend

West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
industrial Britain had their most desirable
neighborhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes.
Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest
citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind
grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel
crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and
sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along
