Stopped in here to give it a try. Had the bbq chicken burrito. Holy moly that thing was huge!! Rice was cooked very well. Chicken tasted really good. All in all a really good burrito. I got mine to go so I can't really comment on the inside atmosphere. I do know it was hot as all get out where... More

Stopped in here for a quick bit to eat. Grabbed two tacos (one fish and one chicken). Delicious. Also had some black beans and rice. The staff is super friendly and the atmosphere is cool. Free refills on soda.

Love this place. Been coming here for years and they never disappoint. Everything on the menu is excellent. No big box stuff here. All the staff are cool and eclectic. Love it.

Street style tacos, all of the toppings, and cold beer to finish out your experience. Not fancy, but fresh and really goo!

Somewhat a "hole in the wall", but with my experience, these are sometimes the best places to eat. The seating area was somewhat dirty and needed attention, but the oversized burritos where fabulous. I think these guys were the original Chipotle, (but with many more options). And...I'd rather eat at the local place rather than some oversized corporation. I found... More

Visited on a Sunday afternoon as I wanted to pickup some burritos, chips, salsa and drinks before meeting a family member for dinner. Total cost was around $45 before tip. After I had paid and tipped I asked where I could find salsa and I was directed to a salsa bar in the dining room. I then asked for a... More

Stopped at Phat Burrito to get a quick bite on a Sunday evening. We were very pleased with the freshness and quality of the food. My husband & I shared a Quesadilla and Veggie Salad. Both were very good but I especially liked the caramelized onions and grilled veggies in the salad. So tasty and an added plus was that... More

We had heard great things about phat burrito and were glad when we were down around dinner time. What a nice chill place. No frills, but really tasty food for a good price. And it was kid friendly too, but didn't feel like a chuck e cheese.

Go hungry because the burritos are huge and delicious! Lots of different combinations of fillings. I would skip the guacamole, the chips came in a single serving bag and the guac was just average. Enjoyed the outdoor seating.

My son (19) selected Phat Burrito to meet me and his sister (23) for lunch, and it was an excellent choice. Great interaction with staff who knew the menu, ingredients, preparation, and history. My son had the steak burrito (grilled steak, lettuce, tomato, cheese, cilantro, etc) and could not finish it. His sister had the fish (grilled grouper) taco salad... More
