Walked in, the building was awesome. For architecture and colors I'd give five stars. The smell was aromatic, and we thought this place was going to be phenominal. Myself, my spouse, and our three children stepped up to order and then a young man yelled at us "burgers or buritos?" Barking orders. Rude. The workers all seemed crabby and rushed, felt as though one young lady threw my cups at me when I asked for them after not receiving them the first time. I got the blue cicilain with cheese curds. Thought it was good especially the curds. Spouse ordered burito. It was bland but eddible. Kids all ordered hamburger kid meals. My oldest said it tasted like a plain tortilla. I tried it,tasted almost gamey, and like cornmeal. Odd horrible hamburgers...kids have tastebuds too. I told my spouse to try it, he did. It ruined our entire meal. For $35 for whole family was definitely fair price but the kids burgers and establisents service was awful ruining any return visits for this family of five.

The burgers are homemade and are huge. No where else can you get a huge tasty burger for that low of a price. The burrito was so big it took me 3 meals just to eat the burrito chipotle should be taking notes off Mr. Large

The burrito was very big. I liked that you could add in whatever you wanted for ingredients, and they had a lot to choose from. I thought it was going to be awesome, I put a lot of salsas and pico de gallo on it. It was very tasteless though. I will just go to real Mexican restaurants when I am craving burritos from now on. It was a real disappointment, but it only cost $6.

Mr. Large $5 Burger and Mr. Large $6 Burrito is in the former DJ’s Grill location. I wish I could say that it was as good, but alas, I can’t.

We were in Forest lake about 4 pm and decided to try Mr. Large $6 Burrito and $5 Burger. They have been open about a month.

When we entered the restaurant (located in the Security State Bank of Marine building), we discovered that the Burrito part is a build your own burrito ala Chipotle Mexican Grill and it does indeed cost $6. A basic plain hamburger is $5.

You order either one at the counter. There are limited condiments for the hamburger at a condiment side counter with ketchup, mustard and hot sauce salt and pepper, and that is about it. No pickles for the plain burger. Extra toppings are extra $$.

Both Pepsi and Coke products are sold with two different soda dispensers. Dr. Pepper my particular favourite is sold in the Pepsi dispenser.
I had a burrito and my wife had a plain hamburger.

My burrito was mediocre but edible and my wife's hamburger was very dry. She would have liked mayo for the dry bun.

The burrito counter was supplied with an ample number of ingredients. The burrito is cheap mainly because they use cheap ingredients. Even with the hot salsa (which was medium heat, at best), it lacked flavor.

The same can be said for the hamburger.
We were not impressed with the food or the staff.

The staff didn’t appear to be happy and the food sure didn’t make us happy which left us all unhappy.
The cost was $15.38 including a $1 for one bottle of water and $1.50 for a soda and tax.
We usually try a restaurant twice but don’t think it is worth trying a second time to see if it has improved.

This restaurant is located across from Forest Lake High School and I have been told that the students from there frequent it. Just a comment if you have child allergies.
