“Nothing special”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

This place is overrated, are people intimidated when reviewing these "hipster" type places when everyone else says it's good, "OMG they have noodles in there burritos there crazy". The $9 fish burrito with the works was overpriced considering it was more like a noodle burrito with fish. The burrito had way too much noodles making it sloppy and mushy, it would be better if there were less noodles and they were crispy for some texture. The flavours of the works were muddled and lost, it didn't really compliment the fish which should be the focus, but it did have a consistent heat that was right for medium. There are so many burrito places around and to be honest none of them are all that great. Small take out place the staff was friendly both on the phone and in person. Adios amigos!

“Great Spot for Burrito!!!”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

This place is off the hook for a burrito! FRESH ingrediants. Staff very friendly and go out of their way to make sure you are happy with your selection. Be patient and wait for the burrito as this is NOT FAST FOOD!!!! They have a great selection of ingrediants to add to the burrito including noodles!!! Who knew how good they would be. Make this place a stop next time you are looking for a change!!! Call ahead if you want to save time!!!! WELL WORTH the time and money!

“Noodles in a Burrito?????”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

Tried this place for the first time and was very surprised! Who would have thought that noodles worked in burritos???? The food was excellent and the price was great. As this was my first visit, I didn't really know what was what, but the staff were very friendly and very helpful. I will be going back and would recommend this place to others. Good food. Good service. Good price.

“Burrito Fabuloso”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

Burritos that offer a choice of a base of chow mein or rice and beans. Opt for the chow mein, you won't be sorry. Others may imitate, but Chino's does it right and are the innovators. Guacamole, salsa, refried beans, hot salsa. I go for the fish, the kids for the biggy bean (cheese beans )with chow mein and jalapeno. Wrapped in a large whole wheat tortilla sealed and then put into a panini press. Bought a pinapple jarrito to drink with it, great combination. Small hole in the wall that fills the gap with a burrito grandote mexican chinoise fusion. I look for places that don't just mail in their efforts, this is one of them. Take out with quirky atmosphere and very friendly staff.

“Not bad”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

We had Chino Locos for dinner tonight. Hubby and kid had the fish, I had the chicken. While I found them to be OK, I won't be driving out of my way to get dinner from there again. They did fix my burrito craving though.
LOVE the fact that guac is included, many places I have been to charge for that.
VERY filling too.
Good price
