BURRITO LOCO MEXICAN RESTAURANT 7/27/2010

NOT TO EXAGERRATE, BUT BEING A CUSTOMER AT THIS RESTAURANT FOR MORE THAN 20 YEARS MAKES ME ONE OF THOSE ""FOOD PICKY"" INDIVIDUALS WHO BECAME A ""BIG FAN"" OF THE BEST, AUTHENTIC MEXICAN CUISINE I HAVE EVER TASTED IN MY LIFE HERE IN NYC. IT IS LIKE BEING IN THE REAL COUNTRY (MEXICO) WHERE SERVICE AND AMBIANCE MAKE THE ENTIRE MOMENT OF STAY WORTH SPENDING FOR!\r THIS IS A FOOD SERVICE ESTABLISHMENT THAT YOU WILL NOT FEEL SORRY ABOUT WHENEVER YOU NEED TO REFER FAMILY MEMBERS, FRIENDS AND ACQUAINTANCES TO HAVE A DAY FULL OF FUN AND GREAT ENTERTAINMENT.\r FROM THE OWNER TO THE STAFF... NO DOUBT THEY ARE ALL WELCOMING, INVITING AND PLEASANT.\r MY BEST FRIEND (WHO ALWAYS GO WITH ME FOR SUMPTUOUS DINNER AND ENJOYABLE DRINK), WOULD AND WILL ALWAYS RECOMMEND THIS RESTAURANT AS ONE OF THE TOP DINING AREAS IN TOWN.\r DON'T WAIT... EAT AND BE MERRY FOR TOMORROW IS ANOTHER DAY TO THINK OF GOING BACK TO BURRITO LOCO!\r WE HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE SOON!\r \r RPG & JCN Pros: THE BEST MARGARITAS AND AUTHENTIC MEXICAN FOOD IN NYC!!! Cons: YOU ARE GOING TO GET SO ADDICTED WITH THEIR FOOD AND DRINKS! more

Terrible customer service, money hungry 9/21/2008

I have been here 3 times and had a terrible experience for 2 of them. The waiters are very nasty.. they roll their eyes at you and take a long time to bring drinks to the table. One time, the waiter even brought drinks to the table that we never even ordered and refused to bring them back! At my most recent tripe there, we had a fairly large party, but we checked about 30 minutes in advance to make sure it wouldn't be a problem and they told us we wouldn't have issues. When they seated us, they would not seat 6 people from our party and began to take other groups in fron tof them. There was also an empty table right next to ours that they could have been seated at but it was for a ""reservation"" (when my friend called she was told they don't take reservations- the table was also empty the entire time we were there). After about 10 minutes of this the 6 people from our group left to go to another place. When we got the bill they had the nerve to charge us a $60 gratuity tax and when we asked why it was so high it was bc 18 people had taken up their seats which was a complete lie.\r \r I highly recommend that you avoid going here unless you want to be treated like a piece of dirt. Cons: TERRIBLE service more

The happy hour complaints are founded... 6/12/2008

I too experienced this problem. My first trip I couldn't stop raving to my BF about the place so the next time we were up for Mexican I invited him along. We had the same experience with the bill seeeming ""off"". Because we were with coworkers, we didn't make a big deal of it and just paid. However, that being said, I don't think it was equitable to take advantage of our group considering we stayed there and ordered food and tipped VERY well. It doesn't affect that the food was nice and the waitstaff was friendly, but it does keep me from returning -- something that should be considered by management when they make the decision to allow this to happen. Pros: Food is good, Waitstaff is nice Cons: Space is small for # of tables, happy hour rules are complicated (or manipulated) more

False happy hour ad and tricked register. Please read! 4/26/2008

Not only the false happy hour ad they have and did not honore even though I spoke to the Manager who lied offering free round and never did but 4 minutes before happy hour was up I ordered another round of drinks and they said that it will be at full price because the register had the clock forward 10 minutes and they could not do anything about it, WHAT A SCAM!, oviously they are money thirsty and don't care about the customers. Aren't the restaurants audited in new york? if not I will and won't be going there anymore nor my friends and anybody I talk to, luckly there are thousands of mexican rests in N.Y.\r Mr. Burrito loco, don't treat your csr that way cause you will be going out of business, my table spent that night over $200.00 which you will never see again from me nor my friends or customers.\r Food was great sevice sucked. Pros: Steak flautas, guacamole. Cons: they like to cheat customers overcharging for drinks more

think again 11/1/2007

FOOD WAS MEDIOCRE BUT THEY ADVERTISE A HAPPY HOUR SPECIAL AND THEN DO NOT HONOR- WENT WITH A GROUP FOR $4 MARGARITAS AND AFTER HAVING TO CHASE THE WAITERS DOWN F OR DRINKS(THAT WERE NOT COLD WHEN THEY ARRIVED TO THE TABLE,)WE PAID FULL PRICE FOR EVERY DRINK AND WOULD NOT RELENT-I'LL NEVER GO BACK- DON'T FALL IN THEIR TRAP\r Pros: margaritas were good Cons: did not honor their special for margaritas (not worth $8.50 during ""happy hour"") more

good music, good margheritas. 8/15/2007

the food here is good, but not amazing. good place to check out for something in expensive and good food. good margheritas. friendly service. great music. chips and salsa rock.\r Pros: Music, Drinks, Cost. Cons: Food is okay. more

Great Guacamole... Decent Service... and a gut-wrenching ride home 4/13/2007

We went here on a Friday night after locating good reviews and rating on this site... so I feel I should tell you what it was really like. \r \r We arrived around 9 PM and were promply seated, 2 top. Service was good, staff was nice and attentive as was the manager that evening. We ordered a Mojito and a Sol beer, the Mojito was good... beer tasted old. We got the chips and guacamole, which is exceptional. Honestly... the Guacamole was that good. For dinner I ordered the chef special, a seafood fajitafor $18.00 that contained 6 shrimp, 4 small portions of salmon, 4 rings of unbattered somewhat chewy calamari and then a entire plater of onions and bell peppers. Honestly the plater they served the entree on was so big, I was using my fiances portion of the table as well as my own. With the meal came 4 stale tortillas, a side dish with sour cream and guacamole and a additional side plate with bad rice and runny refried beans. I tasted both, and didn't eat any more. All in all... the meal was horrible. I have never had such a stomach ache as I did after leaving there. My fiance had the ""Loco Burrito"" as was equally dissatisfied, and equally effected. \r \r To sum it up, the meal, with tip ran $78.00 (if you don't add the $6.00 I spent on Gas-X) and all I could think about was why I didn't just return to the Rocking Horse Cafe, where I know they make good mexican food. If you are in the mood for Mexican, try the Rocking Horse Cafe it was much better. \r \r Pros: Service was good Cons: Food was horrible more

Best mole sauce on the East Coast 3/15/2007

My husband and I joke that we dream about the mole sauce at Burrito Loco, but we're only half-kidding. The burritos poblano are a regular order for us. The mole makes them fantastic. This time we got some other chicken poblano dish that came with corn tortillas and fried plantanos. Amazing! The guacamole and homemade chips and salsa are addictive. The margaritas are delicious and have always been plenty strong when we've ordered. The service is attentive and friendly. Yes, it's loud and cramped, but it's part of the charm. Oh, and they never hesitate to bring more chips or anything else when we ask! This time we ordered a side of extra plantanos and they made just as yummy of a dessert as the bananas flambe. Pros: excellent food, best mole in town Cons: a little noisy and crowded, but good atmosphere if you like that sort of thing more

great guacamole, even better banana margaritas 11/20/2006

go here and order guacamole and some margaritas, enjoy the fresh made salsa with a little kick in it. The food is always good here and ive been coming here routinely for 4 years. We had just a little hiccup with the bill last time we went the waiter came over and apologized and offered us all free tequila shots. Usually the restaurant just says ?oh well and tough luck?. I will be going back here for some time to come, as long as my gf keeps dragging me here for the guacamole. And to the other poster if you want more chips just ask, it would look a little silly to put 8 pounds of tortilla chips on every table. Pros: banana margaritas, guacamole, service Cons: none really more

The best! 4/20/2006

My husband and I have been going to Burrito Loco every chance we get for seven years. You won't find better Mexican anywhere north of the border. The salsa is homemade and scrumptious (and has a little kick), the margaritas are to die for, and the food is as good as it gets. Nice ambience and excellent, attentive service, too. Make sure you save room for the fried ice cream -- the best ever! My only complaint is that the ""background music"" is always way too loud. A minor thing for my favorite restaurant. Pros: food, service, quality & value Cons: loud background music more

One of the Best Mexican Restaurants in the City 3/14/2006

Finding a quality Mexican restaurant in this city isn't easy. Burrito Loco is that rare exception where you can find outstanding service with quality food. While the restaurant/space itself isn't so great (somewhat cramped cheesy interior, and the name implies its a burrito take-out place), the service and food outway its few cons. The frozen margaritas come in a wide assortment of flavors and they are quite tastey. The guacamole is to die for (and before going there, I didn't even like guacamole!) and they make it right at your table. I highly recommend the fajitas. It has a fun environment but not really a place to go on romantic date, but rather with friends or a 3rd or 4th date type of place. Pros: Food, Service Cons: Cramped Interior more

""simply the best"" 9/6/2005

I've been going there regularly for over ten years. It is always excellently prepared, delicious mexican cuisine. The wait staff is forever friendly..... and at your table. I do believe I have tried every mexican restaurant in NYC.........and I always go back to Burrito Loco, when I want authentic mexican food. If you want REAL mexican dishes........definitely try it out.....you will never be disappointed. more

Amazing 7/3/2005

I have been going to this restaurant for 13 years (go once a month) with my husband. The food is great, drinks are amazing and the service is always fast and friendly. The waiter staff remembers our drinks and our favorite meal. I highly recommend going. The salsa is the best I have had. RECOMMEND HIGHLY GO. more

Loud Music & Great Drinks 1/18/2005

With an enormous erray of shooters and mixed drinks on their drink menu, its easy to find ourself and a few friends to drop 200bucks. With smooth music and great waiters all around, the food just seems to taste a little better. Pros: Drink Menu, Food, Inexpensive Cons: , Crowded, Small Groups more

Disappointing food 12/13/2004

For a prearranged group birthday dinner, several friends and I went here a few weeks ago. While I thought that only my meal was disappointing, talking with some of my friends after the fact allowed me to conclude that my experience was not unique. The rice was cold and partially cooked, and the prices were high. Service was dismissive. One of my friends had a quesadilla that was cold, and completely uncooked. You can do far better for Mexican food. Pros: It has food Cons: , Food quality, high prices more

Where are these ratings coming from? 12/12/2004

This place serves some of the worst Mexican food I have ever had in my life. I went with a group of friends, on a weeknight, for a birthday dinner. The service was slow (if you could find it), the margaritas (while they tasted good) were extremely weak and the food was bad and WAY overpriced. None of the entrees we ordered looked good - mine was a semi-hard, mostly cold block of previously melted cheese. Terrible. Either the rave reviews on here are sponsered by the restaurant, or those people were on something... Pros: Location Cons: , Weak drinks, Bad food more

Festive Spirit 11/13/2004

After walking in the village on a sunday afternoon, we stopped at Burrito Loco because we were in search of good mexican food. We lucked out. Burrito Loco made all of us happy. The food was to brag about and the staff was super firendly. They made us feel right at home. We will surely return. Thanks for making our day. Pros: maragritas, festive, food more

Mexican Flavor 6/21/2004

Great and fun place to have a few drinks. The atmosphere is lively and authentic. You cannot leave without tasting a margarita! Pros: price, drinks, location more

Real Mexican 6/15/2004

I've been going to this place for years and its good to finally see it show up on one of these lists of the best. Its nota fancy place for a first date or anything like that. The food is authentic mexican the prices are good and its in a good location. If you're looking for the real thing go to Burrito Loco you can't go wrong. Try a frozen margarita they are great, but could use a little more alcohol. Pros: authentic mexican, reasonably priced, good guacamole more
