Ok. So this is most obviously a fast food resturant that serves mexican food. Even so they managed to serve better food than the resturant I attended yesterday. It definitely could have been cleaner and more fancy but the food is good and cheap. Service and food prep is fast.

We had a chicken, a pork and a beef burrito at this place and all of them were incredible tasty. The burritos were filled with tomato rice and the meat. Together with the burrito we got nachos and 3 different spiced salsa dips. I would also recommend the guacamole, it was a great extra to the burrito. The restaurant is... More

Ate here to go on my last night in NYC, having picked up some last minute items at Duane Reade before heading back to pack. Growing up in Texas, I can be quite picky about Tex Mex, but the chicken mole enchiladas I ordered were great! Definitely recommend this place!

Went here based on reviews. I ordered the pork burrito and guacamole. I was disappointed in both. The burrito was very heavy and had nothing really to lighten it up. The guacamole really wasn't guacamole. It was chunks of avocado and needed salt and lime.

This is a tiny, tiny place with fresh and wonderful food. Bring cash. .no charges. I had a chicken burrito. Fantastic. I am a big guy but had enough left over for dinner. Just a few tables but incredibly clean and well run... That's what you need to do run there...

Almost literally a hole in the wall, this is a neighborhood gem. Excellent mole sauce on the enchiladas. Excellent fresh guacamole. Great lunch stop if you're in the area.

A tiny restaurant and takeaway. Only a few tables and very steamy from kitchen but absolutely delicious. Burrito was the best I've had. Complimentary tortillas and salsa (spicy). Reasonable price for great food.

The first time I saw this place there was no one inside so I kept going. After reading the reviews I went back. The burritos and tacos were fantastic and HUGE! One burrito could almost do two people. The only thing that wasn't big was a side of guacamole. The burritos were flavorsome and good quality. I had the pork... More

The food was good and the staff certainly went out of their way to get what we needed with small children. The cost of what we purchased was high.

Having read the good reviews, we tried Great Burrito. Loved the salsa and guacamole. The burritos and quesadillas were good, not great. Very nice staff!
