Food is always excellent and the service is always wonderful. They will answer questions about the menu and will make recommendations when asked.

Don't let the name fool you, they have more than just burritos. Typical Mexican food. Very good food and friendly people make for an enjoyable meal.

We dine at Burrito Express often. The employees are very nice and helpful. The food is tasty and hot. The pork tamales are some of the best I have ever eaten. The margaritas are the best.

We were really concerned because of the name. But it was nothing like we feared. I had the special dinner... too much food for one person but so delish. My hubby had the chicken chimichanga dinner. And he cleaned his plate! Would definitely recommend this...More
