We have just enjoyed a superb meal here at The Flying Burrito Brothers / The Barrio Brothers, Tauranga (we understand a name change is about to take place). I am vegan, gluten free, and dairy intolerant, which is beyond the capability of many restaurants, but the wonderful staff here put together a delicious meal for me. No fuss, helpful suggestions,...

Excellent service and outstanding mouthwatering food. First time tried the salad and it's was just divine. Fresh seasoned well. Also Tacos were just as good as last time. We had chocolate cake and ice cream to finish the night with. Perfect ending of a perfect meal. Can't wait to go back again

We have been here half a dozen times over the last two years and each time have left satisfied. Good service, amazing margarhitas, fantastic food, and great size portions for the prices. Beats the other Mexican places in Tauranga hands down!
