Stopped for take out on our way home from Fort Collins. So sad when we tucked in when we got home. Looked like chipotle but completely lacked any flavor. Bummer.

I would like this place, if it didn't require a down payment and monthly installments to eat lunch. Not really, but $9 for a burrito that rivals Taco Bell in size is just not the way I eat lunch. Any taco shop will give you twice the food at half the price. I ordered one of the special burritos and... More

Big City Burritos is our favorite place for burritos whether breakfast or regular. You get to choose your tortilla (out of about 6 flavors), cheese (2 choices), meat filling (6 or 7 kinds), beans (2 kinds), salsas (several kinds), and whether you want sour cream, guac, lettuce, etc. We probably go there once a week. It's always fresh, hot, and... More

We tried this place out recently since a lot of my friends had suggested it. I LOVE breakfast burritos morning, noon and night. Lots of combination choices so I'll be back to try more.

I'm sure all the other burritos are lovely and delicious, but I've been getting the potato burrito from this place since college. Not the breakfast burrito with egg and potato, not the meaty things with whatever and potato, just the country style potatoes, cheese, salsa, sour cream, and the Cherry in top, ranch dressing! Big enough for two servings, yummy... More
