“Bad service, great food and specials”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 October 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

Weeknight specials are awesome here, order a pitcher or a mug of beer and get food for free! The quesadillas are great.

“Best wings in town.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2013 via mobile

This place may appear like a college dive....ok, so it is, but it is still a fun place to grab beers before a gopher game. The downstairs burrito line rivals chipotleand you can't beat Wednesday night trivia with dj Steve .always a good deal and a great value.

“Prototypical college Bar with Mexican food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2013

We went to Burrito Loco while picking up our daughter from the University. First the good. This is a true college joint and local at that. The food is cheap as are the drinks. You definitely get the feel of an authentic Dinkytown college place. The not-so-good include pretty marginal service, food that is not memorable and TVs/loud music throughout. This is a college place for college students and it was fun to visit but I doubt I'll be back.

“Slightly Diferent Twist on the Tex Mex Craze”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2013

If you like Chipotle/Qdoba style food, but wish you could eat it at a bar, this is the place to be. I love that you can get barbequed chicken and ranch on your burrito. It gives it a much different taste than you can get at Chipotle or Qdoba plus you can sit and drink all you want as it is a bar. They have free food on certain nights if you order pitchers of bear and what not. And free chips and salsa with your burrito. Plus on top of it all, they have DELIVERY!

I will say this is a young crowd - all college age. But it's not a bad place to grab a bite to eat with a group of friends.

“Will Quickly Become A Favorite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 January 2013

We've been here a few times and fall in love a little more each time. It's in the middle of college town, so cheap food and drinks is the perk. The food is really good and a great value. The drink specials are off the charts, so if you're going to go, check out their web site or call for the happy hours first. This last time, we found out the Saturday night 5-10pm special is $5 pitcher of beer and you get a pitcher of wings. Um...OK! For sure worth a stop if you're in the area, or even if you're not and you're looking for a really good and affordable meal and fun time!
