Mucho Burrito Review

I didn’t know what to think when I went to Mucho Burrito for the first time. You mean there’s rice in a burrito traditionally? What? Wait? Where’s the ground beef? It’s pulled steak meat instead? Hmm…

The overall feeling of the restaurant is more of a “authentic” Mexican meal. The things you would normally expect from a fast food taco/burrito joint you will not find here, including Mexi fries – those are replaced with nachos. Right now, Mucho Burrito and El Taco Loco are the only two places like this in Medicine Hat (that I know of). The ordering counter works on a Subway-esque like system where you get to choose all the toppings you desire. There’s a variety of sizes of burritos including Pequeño (10″), Medio (12″) or Mucho XL. I have got the Medio each time and left pretty full every time – I don’t think I could ever finish a Mucho XL. There’s tons of other choices though including quesadillas, tacos, salad/taco bowls, and more. Most choices are grill-pressed which adds that nice little touch of compactness while in your hands and fingers.

The last time I went, I tried the new “Smother” option on my burrito. The burrito is dressed with Mucho southwest tomato sauce, topped with cheese and sour cream or Burrito sauce. You need to eat this thing with a fork… it’s pretty messy but definitely a good choice. Each time I’ve went the taste and flavor has been getting better and better because I have refined my options and choices each time to make the perfect burrito that I like. For example, I first went with cilantro (minty) and some beans (pasty) but found I don’t like those flavors combined. Overall, it’s a good, different, experience and look forward to going there many times to come.

    I’ve only been to Mucho Burrito once, but I’d like to go back because it was pretty good. It highly resembles a Mexican restaurant that I went to when I was in Salt Lake City, only a little more fast-food oriented.

    Tried some new combinations this this Thursday when we went and was better than ever. Refine and dine!

    Everyone should go to Mucho Burrito every day.

    Okay well, I’m a huge fan of nachos, and their nachos are excellent, and they have vegetables they put on to make a meatless dish all tasty and stuff.

    An important thing to point out though, if you’ve never been there before or don’t remember how things work you can just say “I never been here before” and they’re all prepared to walk you through the process and your options. They’ve always been really good like that.
