I haven't had a lot of burritos in my life but Boojum was a real treat. We had to queue for about 15/20 minutes as it was lunchtime but it was well worth the wait. You should go when you're hungry though, they are very filling!

Service always with a smile. Portion size is just right. Queue always out the door no matter when you go but always... More

I've heard so much about Boojum that I decided to take the plunge. It's essentially the only fast food burrito ('Mexican') restaurant (Chipotle hasn't made it across to Belfast yet). The prices are reasonable and the loaded burritos are indeed incredibly tasty and filling! I wouldn't say it's wildly different from any other burrito chain the world over but it's... More

The place is usually crowded. There is usually a huge line whenever I have gone to pickup the dinner but it keeps moving so I guess it is fine. Carnitas are very well prepared. Tacos are soft. The nachos are good. Guacamoles are good but I have seen better. Hot salsas could be a little bit spicier. I'd be surely... More

Massive queue as always, but the service is quite quick and there were plenty of seats left for me and my fiance to eat in. Delicious food. It's fantastic that the veggie bowl can have both beans and peppers!

Comparable to your average burrito bar such as Moe's or chipotle. Staff was friendly. Generous portions. Tasty.

Boojum is hugely popular, seen by it's three stores around the city and endless queues. The food is good, portions are large and I'll never not enjoy it. However I feel like it is overhyped and there are much better options out there that are less well known and therefore have much shorter waiting times (thinking of Kurrito especially). If... More

It's was alright. Food was well prepared and fresh. Prices were good but it just didn't do it for me. Glad I tried it though, just wouldn't rush back.

For a quick bite and an alternative from fast food, it isa good option. However, authentic Mexican it is not. From it's humble beginnings to what it is now, the flavours are bland and the actually wrapping process is kinda bizarre . Bite into one side; full of cheese and rice. Bite into the opposite: meat and sauce. All the... More

Chose this as a fan of Mexican food and not many choices for this in the city. Simple and straightforward quick lunch opposite The Europa Hotel. Seems popular with the younger crowd, students etc. Welcoming environment, plenty of tables, can take out as well if preferred. Food good, ordering process at the counter can be a bit quick but maybe... More
