Restaurant Review: Burrito Mexican Grill, Kaiserslautern

UPDATE: As of summer 2016, this restaurant appears to be closed. I guess I can't be too surprised because it seemed as if every time I tried to stop by during their opening hours while they were still in business, no one was there and management gave no explanation why the restaurant wasn't open. Business owners, if you want to be successful, you need to run with regular hours!

Monday - Thursday 1100 - 2200
Friday - 1100 - 0200
Saturday: the store says it opens at 1100 but I've been there several Saturdays and they weren't open then. They may open at 1400; check first before stopping by.

Good golly, are the Mexican restaurants popping up all over the place around in Kaiserslautern! I love Mexican food so I'm always happy to see something new. This spring, three new Mexican restaurants have popped up. One includes Burrito Mexican Grill in the pedestrian zone in downtown Kaiserslautern.

The grill is more geared toward the take-away crowd, and especially the post-bar hopping crew with late night hours, it seems. There are two high top tables and chairs inside for those wishing to have a quick meal. The store is clean, neat, and sparse inside with the tables, a drink cooler, and the grill area to order.

The menu is also small; on offer are burritos, chili, and drinks (including soft drinks and Coronoa beer). I would have liked to see more on the menu, to include nacho chips at least, but then again, the shop is true to its name in that it's a burrito joint. I ordered the veggie burrito and enjoyed the huge burrito filled with rice, grilled bell peppers, corn, pico de gallo, guacamole, and jalapenos. It wasn't authentic Mexican food, which was no surprise, but good nonetheless and reminded me of something from Qdoba.

For a quick burrito fix or a post bar snack, Burrito Mexican Grill is worth a try!
