Used to come here regularly many years ago, but the quality went down a lot. Talking to a customer the other day and they said it had new people and was much better now. So being brave I went. Not Good at all. Grab a microwave popcorn and a can of pop somewhere and eat better. I ate 25% and... More

On the corner of 14th and Lonsdale, Red Burrito offers a range of wraps containing reasonable amounts of meat, beans and veg for about ten bucks. The resulting burritos are large enough for a good lunch but manage to be stodgy and slushy at the same time. Recommended only for die-hard fans of faux Mexican food and those who can't... More

I come here for lunch from time to time. I think it's great food. Prompt fast service. Similar to Chipotle. Cash or Canadian Debit, clean restaurant, recycle, local newspaper to read. Usually a lineup at noon.

Red Burrito was recommended as a great lunch spot by a co-worker. I won't take her recommendations ever again. My food was nasty. It was greasy, slimy and had no flavour. Not only was the service rude, the food was tasteless and the restaurant was filthy. My chicken burrito had lots of fat and pieces of gristle in it. The... More

Not only was the service awful but the food was disgusting as well! My boyfriend and I went here and ordered our food, then AFTER we ordered and our food, and PAID, he mentioned "oh BTW, we are closing in 5 min, so you have to take it to go!" UMMM.. the whole point of coming there was to SIT... More

First of all, I read other reviews and thought they were hilarious. This is a simple place, where you walk up & select how you want to "build" your burrito with whatever ingredients you like. For anyone to review it as though it were a restaurant is plain silly. That being said, and having tried similar Mexican-ish spots in BC... More

Talk about pretending to be something you're not. Why would I ever go back once I discovered that their food had no relationship to Mexico whatsoever! Not only was their food generally tasteless, the recipes are obviously geared to folks who aren't really open to or comfortable with ethnic food. I'd have to be desperate to eat their food ever...

your food is just on a level that is not even close to Mexican, you don't take credit cards and although you do take Debit Cards, you have the Audacity to charge a fee like you are doing the customer a favor for dining in your over priced location which I guarantee will FAIL!!

We tried it as someone had recommended it to us. I have to say I'm very surprised someone would recommend it. I had the chicken tamale and there was virtually no meat inside, just a big dough ball really. They were also very stingy with the picco de gallo, salsas and sour cream. I'd rather pay more and actually have... More

Great place for a quick lunch. The tamales are fresh made in house and are a must try.
