Looking for good Burritos

Anyone know of a place in Montreal in the Mcgill, Concordia downtown or St. Henri areas? Preferably somewhere cheap and student friendly.

    Nope, sorry. With the exception of the Burrito Grande from La Chilenita and the veggie offerings from Burritoville, Montreal is a burrito wasteland.

      I guess Burritoville fills in the cheap and student-friendly requirements.

        Bleh 9 bucks for a vegetarian burrito is not exactly cheap. The staff are nice but I understand why the NDG location closed down.

          I was gonna say. Like most vegetarian places, there seems to be a 'do-good/moral-superiority' (depending how you feel about eating animals) surcharge. Particularly funny since lettuce and tofu has about the cheapest food costs possible.

      I used to like the burrito grande at Taqueria Mex on St. Laurent near Marie-Anne...not quite as good lately for some reason. But they use yummy grilled chicken instead of nasty bland ground or shredded boiled stuff. And I love their salsa bar.

        La Chilenita is good, cheap and filling.
        64 Marie-Anne West (between Clark and St-Laurent Boulevard.) There is another location (which Chowhound automatically tagged) but I haven't been there, so I'm not sure if it's as good ;) Not QUITE as convenient to get to from McGill in the winter, but an easy pass through Jeanne Mance Park during the summer.
