It would stay hidden if not for the long line, but it keeps moving and it's worth it. Stop by on a Tuesday or Friday and get yourself some tamales! All the toppings you want at no extra charge. Very friendly owner and staff. Fun...More

I started doing some contract work at the Wells Fargo Center in Uptown Charlotte this week, and I happened upon Johnny Burrito, which is located in the College St. Shops. I was a little intimidated by the line that was out the door when I...More

John has a longstanding reputation quality and speed of service. The "do it yourself" ordering is great. The lines are long but they move very quickly. Consistently great products. As long as I work downtown, this place will be on the short list of lunch...More

OK - don't be discouraged but by the fact that you need to go into the dingy basement of the mall. Head downstairs and find Johnny's! Fun, friendly, huge portions of delicious ingredients. This is not like the cookie cutter style eateries you find on...More

Odd location but the 12 person line told me this was a good option. Did not disappoint! Great selection of fresh ingredients. Diablo sauce was a hot addition!

Though I work downtown, thus was my first visit. First of all, the guy behind the register is awesome! He takes the time to explain everything. I ordered the giant steak burrito - don't do that, I'll get to this. So I picked a wheat...More

I walk past 3 taco/burrito joints just to get to Johnny Burrito. Best burritos in town (2nd place is not even close). The line is often out the door but moves quickly. I have been a customer for many years and have seen the same...More

My co-workers have been raving about Johnny Burrito, so I tried it this past week and luckily the line wasn't too long. Given the rainy weather outside I thought it would be--timing is everything. I followed my friend's lead and had the burrito without the...More

I have been going to Johnny Burrito, probably since it opened. They have always been the best. First - they have always included EVERY topping in the price. There has never been an extra charge for guacamole, queso or veggies. I LOVE the chicken nacho...More
