I've been frequenting this place for years and recommend it anyone who loves burritos as much as I do. The food is great, semi-healthy (or so I like to tell myself) and cheap. The staff are very down to earth and hip. It's a must-eat.

Only a couple of choices on the menu but that's all they need because they do them right. Fresh, tasty and made to order. My choice was the chicken quesadilla but the burrito probably would have been just as good.

Ordered a delicious and super-filling burrito bowl here whilst visiting a friend one summer. It was awesome and I would definitely be a frequent customer if I lived in this area.

I've loved BJax since they opened, and I've loved lobster rolls everywhere they're sold, so I was excited to see they offer one. BUT THIS IS THE LEAST LOBSTER YOU WILL GET PER DOLLAR ANYWHERE. Really outrageously overpriced, and it's not like the price of lobster is up these days/years, you know?

I ordered food, watched an employee leave the bathroom while zipping up his fly and then immediately touch food. I was so disgusted that I left without demanding my money back. It seems like the staff is more interested in being cool and hip than producing good eats!

We recently checked this place out, ordered 3 large chicken burritos ... Even though we liked the taste, freshness of ingredients, and the size ... still, paying $10 for one burrito is pretty ridiculous. We'll go somewhere else next time.

My favourite travel destination has always been Central America and to have a place in my home town that actually knows how to make a legitimate burrito is exciting. I've been a repeat customer at burrito Jax since day one and I have sent countless customers their way. A burrito is suppose to be a good healthy option for you... More

I was on my way to this place and it was hard to find a parking spot ones I get inside of the place I check the menu and then I realize it wasn't a Mexican food, I'm Mexican and we don't eat that ingredients cooked like that so I didn't even try it. Sorry but not Mexican food

I have been here maybe 3 times and I think about going back a lot! It's great because you can choose your own toppings... As much or as little as you want:) I have been to both locations and both are the same great service and food. Delicious...hmmm maybe I will go tonight!!
