Measurements: 7″ lenght; 9″ circumference (standard size)

Border Burrito (Brown Rice, Cheese, Beans, Pico De Gallo & Sour Cream) $8.70 after tax

Burritoville, the original Mission influenced burrito in Manhattan first opened in 1992.  At their height, they had locations in virtually every nook of the island, but now are left with only one in Chelsea.  Specialty burritos, Mexican style brown rice, and unimpressive salsas leave Burritoville at a disadvantage for competing with the coming new wave of NYC burrito makers.  The rotating daily $5 burrito menu selection makes Burritoville worth cataloging for the sake of value.

VALUE: Yes, if you take advantage of the daily $5 burrito; No if you order off the regular menu.

WIZARD’S SCORE: 6.5

    Next time, try the Route 66 (veggie chorizo — delish!) with refried beans and no rice. That burrito got me through some dark burrito days in NYC. I just wish they’d offer something besides brown rice. Also, if they have the spicy green salsa, be sure to check that out.

    I had the Route 66 burrito, one of their better options; but in two weeks it never once was the $5 special, so I had to pay $8.70. And yes, the spicy green salsa is a must!
