“Meh”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2012

It ain't bad food, but just not very exceptional.

I've yet to eat good mexican food outside of Mexico. Burrito bar did not change that. Service was decent enough, and the food sure was plenty, but the food was also heavily influenced by Serbian wants, which made, for example, the beef burrito into a goulash burrito.

“Nothing special”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2012

If you're in need of a big portion of food, this is the place to go. But it is not something exceptional, i think it's a bit of a mix of Serbian and Mexican, rather than authentic Mexican food. I mean it is tasty but not above expectations

“putting lots of mustard dressing on food doesn't make it Mexican :)”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2010

People like this restaurant, and it is quite likeable. It's just a pretty long way from being Mexican food. Belgrade is pretty bad for food variety so people tend to lower their standards in gratitude for that something other than grim Domace Kuhinje restaurants exist. I lived around the corner of burrito bar and used to go there quite often just for a change.

Serbia is not a multicultural country and a lot of ethnic cuisine restaurants don't really try to cook authentically, knowing the punters won't be able to tell the difference. This is another example of that.

I think they may have a problem with availability of ingredients, but the food is totally inauthentic as some other online reviews testify. They also have a habit of covering dishes in some kind of mustard dressing (yes, mustard), i guess because that makes it hot, right? I can't agree with the other reviewer either - the nachos are often burned. And really, nothing tastes very Mexican.

So basically, if you want a change from Serbian food you can try it. The food isn't bad and it's not expensive. It's not great either, though, and if you want Mexican food, don't get your hopes up :)

“Pretty Good (if not authentic) Mexican food in Belgrade”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2009

We ate there for lunch and the service was very good-

We had Nachos (wonderful but interesting with a swiss-type cheese on top), Tacos and Quesadillas. (more like burritos and some type of chicken with a sour cream sauce on top of 2 flour tortillas)

The chips and Salsa were GREAT!

A nice change of pace form the endless yuppie bars and street food!
