I've tried burritos everywhere in the UK, dozens of places and this remains the best. The carnitas is perfect, I find other places at lots of spice to it which ruins it in my opinion (Boojum add cinnamon to theirs which makes it taste like a mince pie). Their mango salasa and the habanero cucmber pickle are amazing.

Ringing in at £6 for a HUGE veggie salad bowl and bottle of mineral water, Chalcos was good value for money when I visited for lunch, today on Monday 1 August 2016. I like the fact that when sitting-in you get a proper plate and knife/ fork which is much more sustainable than other fast food restaurants which use plastic... More

Eat here at least once a week. The mango salsa is top. The food is great and the place is never too busy.

Another second for the veggie burrito. Super full of mexican rice, pinto beans, grilled peppers and onions (think fajita mix), guacamole, salsa, corn, lettuce, sour cream, etc. They have all the fixins! I do wish they would have black beans, though; that would make it perfect! Size is huge. I went in ravenous and could only finish half. Again, ravenous... More

The staff in this place are appalling. How do you manage to run a business with the dim moody unenthusiastic staff you have... Sort this out honestly before your run into the ground. Readily good food but poor beyond poor staff hygiene... What happened to gloves when you are serving food. Have been hearing of your staffing issues from a... More

I had a really unsatisfying experience here, heard good things so i was excited. I got served by a fairly tall girl with an english accent. She was very rude, barely even acknowledged me, didn't even say hello or ask me what i wanted. I then asked for a burrito and she asked what type of meat i wanted without... More

Why this place isn't more popular than Boojum I'll never understand.., This place is on the Lisburn road just up from the MBC and the Student's Union so students would usually flock to a place like this. The portion sizes here are bigger than Boojum and the quality of meat/rice is also a lot nicer. The price is roughly the... More
