“Was good, now too corporate.”
Reviewed July 30, 2014

I used to love BarBurrito - it was different, it seemed good value for money and the atmosphere was far less clinical than it seems to be now. Nowadays, Barburrito seems to have morphed into a mexican style Subway - charging extra for anything you might want on your burrito outside of meat, beans and rice.

Although it is still a better option than many chain food outlets, there are also far, far better mexican burrito bar options in Manchester alone. Panchos in the Arndale and the new burrito place on Oxford Street provide much better value for money and a more authentic experience. Disappointing that Barburrito couldn't keep up the good work. Maybe they just stretched themselves too far over too many branches.

“Horrible”
Reviewed June 28, 2014 via mobile

I've been twice and both times sadly disappointed. Over priced cold food with employees that make you feel like your unconvincing them. I won't be back. There's a subway right next door..... I recommend them.

“Best fast food in Manchester”
Reviewed June 8, 2014 via mobile

I know this is only a fast food place but it was amazing!
First time discovering barburrito and I was not disappointed. Staff were friendly, helpful and smiley and the food is exactly what you need to keep you going through the day.
Love it and I'm definitely having lunch here from now on.

“Best burritos about. ”
Reviewed May 8, 2014 via mobile

Absolutely brilliant burritos here. Fantastically seasoned and balanced, big too. I can't think of anything to fault it with, the food is very good value for what you get, especially compared to other Mexican chain restaurants.

“Delicious”
Reviewed December 26, 2013

I came here with a friend for their birthday a couple of weeks ago in November, for the first time.

I really enjoyed the food. I ordered a Burrito Bowl, which is basically just a burrito in a bowl! My friend ordered the same.

The prices range from £5.95+ for all dishes so, it's a bit expensive, but, not really. It was worth it.
