Just Have It, cant say more. The chilli sause with baritto is amazing. You would find one near the Sky Tower on Hobson Street

This place is OK. The Quesadilla was great. Went back for a burrito but that was average at best. There is a better place (Mexicali) about a 10 minute walk away at the viaduct. California Burrito does have a cool style about it and the staff are awesome, unfortunately the product could be better. Don't expect it to be terrible... More

Located just around the corner from our hotel, this joint was perfect to grab a quick bite just before heading out to explore Auckland. 12" Quesadilla was okay, however what really impressed us were the Tacos. Really fresh, nicely seasoned mince and yummy Guac. Better option than the Colonel or Golden Arches. Worth a quick stop.

This is a fantastic restaurant to go to if you want a quick, delicious hot food. We went for dinner and was very pleased with the quick service, but best of all - the amazing food. If I had one thing to complain about - it's the use of plastic cutleries, which makes it hard to eat your enchilada, but... More

Very takeaway oriented but a few chairs. We stopped for a late night post theatre gorge. Lots of choice and huge portions but nothing too imaginative.

I was introduced to this place by my trusty workmates and I've never looked back. The best burritos in town. You'll not be disappointed, make sure you say yes to the guacaomole!
