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 place. Might have to travel up here again.

We had not been to Burrito Express for awhile. Had been oue 'go to' for easy in and out Mexican Dinner, or take out, during the week or just on the fly. We were very pleasantly surprised by their new and expanded menu, which oddly is not visible via the Internet. They have also kept up their good quality. The... More

You cannot go wrong having a meal at Burrito Express. The staff is friendly and always at your table with water and chips as soon as you sit down. I really like their cheese enchiladas - they really hit the spot.

Finally made a longer overdue visit to this local Mexican Restaurant. Locally owned and very nicely decorated. Ample parking. Clean. But the best: delicious salsa! Yummy cheese dip for appetizers. Followed by a perfectly appointed plate that included a steak quesadilla, fresh chopped salad and guacamole. The food is well worth a drive and stop off the Interstate!! Very friendly... More

We had previously eaten at the Burrito Express in their original location, so we thought we would try this location. Not very good at all. We we easily seated at lunch time on a Saturday afternoon. There were only about five other parties seated. I ordered the Cheesesteak Quesadilla. There was very little flavor to the steak. My wife ordered... More

A couple of years back, this place seemed to be better than it seems currently. You get the traditional chips and salsa which are ok and the lunch selections are filling and reasonable, just not all that good. I would be very disappointed to pay the much higher dinner prices for this quality.

Looking for Gluten Free, and, took a chance, by asking before we got seated. We were assured that they could accommodate us. Not only, did they accommodate us, they served us one of the best Mexican meals, we've had, in the U.S. Clean, efficient, friendly and, very reasonable! Food was served quickly, with all fresh ingredients, and, at all times,... More
