“Great Food!”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

This small restaurant has some of the best tacos and burritos in the capital region. As everything is made to order, and they're not a huge place, the service will not be as quick as most fast food places, but the wait is worth it! The habanero papaya salsa is wonderful!

“Love their burritos!!!”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

It's a hole in the wall, designed really only for take-out. There is only one table and some stools. Get the burritos! You can pick a burrito bowl, if you prefer. The Bros Ground Beef burrito with guacamole, salsa roja and chipotle sour cream is fabulous! Their guacamole is very different. It has cabbage in it. No way would you think it would work, but it does perfectly. The Bros Pina Shrimp and Bros Chicken Yaki and Bros Salmon burritos with pineapple salsa, chipotle sour cream and habanero papaya are fantastic! The combination works. All three have a bit of a kick to them. The Bros Carnitas is also very good. It has their unique guacamole and salsa verde, so this one doesn't have the bite. All the burritos come with rice, beans and cheese. All burritos are less then $10, so it's a great bargain for a lot of food. The tacos are also really good. For such a tiny place, they have quite the menu. For both the burritos and tacos, you have choices ranging from BBQ chicken, fish, portobello mushroom, chorizo, salmon, shrimp, fried shrimp, pinapple shrimp all the way to marinated grilled steak. You can also build your own and pick your fillings and salsas. They make their own flour tortilla and it's a little different. I wasn't 100% on board with it. But you can choose their homemade corn tortilla instead. The empanadas are also excellent. I really like this place. Can't wait to try the other items on the menu.

“Decent tacos and fast service.”
Reviewed August 11, 2012

In the heart of the student ghetto. Get it to go. The parking can be a problem. Lots to choose from. Average prices.

“Soggy tortillas”
Reviewed July 13, 2012

I wondered why I had lived in Albany for four years and never heard anyone speak of Bros Tacos. YUCK! We had tacos in their homemade corn tortillas and they were SO SOGGY. It was like eating wet bread. The filling was fine, but there was no recovering from the tortilla. Taco Bell would have been more enjoyable, and I haven't eaten there in 15 years.

“Fantastic takeout”
Reviewed March 11, 2012

Everything here I home made, food tastes every bit as good and authentic as you get in Latin America. Don't sit down, this place is designed for takeout.
