Had two delicious burritos here. One beef, one chicken. They were delicious and very filing/hearty.
Would go back for sure. Everything was so fresh.

A colleague suggested this little (and I do mean little) Burrito place for lunch. This is the place to go when you want to pick up a hot and tasty lunch to go between meetings, or on your way somewhere else. Not a sit down, quiet lunch place, this is a place for people on the move.

Food is excellent for such a fast food style "restaurant". HOT and made to order. I had quesadilla and on another visit a burrito; both were excellent, prepared quickly and easy on the wallet.

They have a very fast short order system and are clearly used to regulars. When you step up to the counter, know what you want because your order is taken in seconds and the food begins preparation literally seconds later. They expect you to know what you want and get it out! Staff while not overtly cheerful are very efficient and will coach you if you don't "know the system".

A line arrangement of preparation makes this process flow quickly and smoothly. One person preps your order, another cooks it and another cuts and wraps. This means the little place can rock it out even when there is a line. There is often a line. Your number will be called when your food is ready.

As a tribute to the overall product, at lunch time (from about 11:15 to about 12:45) there is a line of local business folk, anticipating their lunches. This, in a neighbourhood with a wealth of other fast food and sit down opportunities, speaks volumes for quantity, quality and speed of this operation. Do not despair if there is a large line, I was at the end and was through with food in hand in well short of 10 minutes.

Food quality: not 5 star and does not try to be. Just good, solid, fairly low fat, HOT food. No soggy burrito that has been sitting on a shelf under a heat lamp, we are talking made to order. Quesadilla, crisp and hot with salsa and sour cream and all the usual trimmings; hot with spice if you like and HOT from the cook's hand to yours.

We perched at a small table amidst the chaos and had our food and a super cold soft drink and felt pretty good about the whole thing.

Thanks Burrito Bandidos!
