“Just OK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2014

Nice addition to the various lunch options in the center of Leuven. However, this place does not give that much value: over 6 euros for a burrito is not that cheap.

Dear Gerre,

thank you for your positive review! We appreciate your tip and always try to improve how we work based on customer inputs. Our main focus at Donki is maintaining high quality throughout our dishes. As such we believe fresh home made salsas and freshly grilled chicken, meats and vegetables is the way forward. As a new business which takes freshness at heart we are not able to work lower prices. But that won't stop us from organizing special promos from time to time, so do keep an eye on our facebook page :)

Thanks again for your review and we hope to see you again soon!
The Donki team

“Decent 'Chipotle' clone”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2014

Good burritos, they really follow the Chipotle way of making them. Price per volume these burritos are slightly less favorable than their original counterparts, but still decent food and very tasty.

“As close to the real thing as we have found in Europe.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2014

This place does good burritos and the are as close to actual Mexican food as I have found in Europe. Make sure to add the guacamole to your burrito, grab a beer, and sit outside in the square. It's a nice, inexpensive way to have a good meal in Leuven.

“It's just a burrito...but what a burrito”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2014

I've been waiting for some real choices among quality Mexican food to arrive in Leuven for many years. Though I worked at La Cucuracha and have an undying love for that place (and it's owner) this is the best burrito you can get in Leuven. Forgive me, Alejandro. Fresh, delicious and excellent value.

“best mexican food in belgium”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014

I am addicted to this place. Donki is exactly the type of thing Leuven needed! The burritos are absolutely enormous, with perfect guacamole, amazing black beans, good salsa... Basically, everything is the way it should be.

This place would be even more perfect if they delivered, but I'm not sure they would be able to handle the vast amount of orders flying in. It's just that good :)
