This is my second review. We eat here weekly (at least). The burritos and now the tacos (yippee!) are the city's best - which is a huge accomplishment in a city full of burrito joints.

Why is Chino Loco's the best? They use only the freshest ingredients and use their creativity to invent the most delicious fusion combinations - do try the chow mein noodles in your burrito, it is fab.

Their new taco offerings are equally worthy of all the hype. So fresh and full of flavour.

At busy times you might wait a bit for your order - best to call ahead. They are busy for a reason...the food is top notch and oh so reasonably priced.

Enjoy!

Went there on the fly having heard nothing about it. I liked the simple food menu and the choice of drinks. Our orders were ready in 5 min. Warm and full of flavorful white fish.Had the mild and was perfect for this gringo. Two fish burritos and two coke for about $20. Only two stools, so we were lucky they were free so we could sit and eat. Fun super hero decor. Doesn't take itself to seriously, unlike some foodies out there ;)

So I found this place because it was featured on "You Should Eat Here" and I was super excited to try a different burrito place. I ordered the pulled pork burrito and my friend ordered the fish.

Service: we arrived at 7pm and were told that they close at 730pm as we wanted to eat at the Resto... Our burritos took 20 mins to prepare, so needless to say we had to ask for them to-go afterall.

Food: both were fully loaded and bland. Mine was cold... The pork tasted like it was in the fridge maybe? Not impressed. Portion was generous.

Atmosphere: nothing special and only has about 4 tables - decor is boring and bare.

There are much better places in the city... Mucho better!!! I will not return... I'm confused what all te hype is about. Sorry Chino, but I wanted to love u!!

Went to this little spot with the hubby went in and it smelled amazing i got the "off the hook" all i can say is amazing the beef was tender and the veg and rice was also so fresh and good . hubbs got the jerk chicken with noodles and that was very good tasted like jerk chicken with the right spices and fresh fresh fresh. Who ever thought about putting noodles in a Burrito but i made it much lighter then the rice and there so big hugh we could only eat half ..........so will be going back to this place amazing very good

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!
