Burrito Boyz. The HomeBoyz of Burritos!

There usually isn't any argument when it comes to whether or not Burrito Boyz makes the cut for excellent burritos. Because they do! Its well known, and just not from the burritos themselves but because of the many burrito locations Burrito Boyz has! 
First off I'm going to say if you are unaware of Burrito Boyz then introduce your self! ACTUALLY if you don't know any burritos GO INTRODUCE YOUR SELF! You will never regret having a burrito as a friend! 

As said above and previously Burrito Boyz has lots of locations LOTS! There is no reason NOT to drop by and try a burrito none at all; SO NO EXCUSES FOR NOT TRYING BURRITO BOYZ! 
There is the two locations in Toronto 218 Adelaide St West and 575 College St West both are open Monday to Wednesday from 11am to 11pm; Thursdays 11am to 3am; Friday and Saturday 11am to 4am; and last but not least the day of rest Sunday 11am to 11pm. Even Burrito Boyz gives you many reasons to visit and grab a burrito. The rest of the Burrito Boyz locations are in Mississauga, Brampton, Etobicoke, Streetsville, and Waterloo. For the relation to the name of the blog I will only mention the Toronto locations but you can check out the other locations at

The well achieved deserved burritos!

The burritos my self and a friend got the night of Sunday February 26TH were well deserved burritos. The usual shift on Sunday evenings at Sportchek the mall and stores close at 7:00pm and the associates get out at 8:00. Yes it is enough time to grab a burrito from Burrito Boyz considering they close at 11pm on Sundays; but there was a co-worker of ours that was having going away gathering celebration for leaving our store and going to another Sportchek at a new mall. My self and my friend agreed to attend the going away gathering and leave 10:00pm at the very latest, giving us an hour to grab a juicy burrito. The going away gathering took place at Moxies in Yorkdale mall, we wanted to leave at 10:00 but service is not fast at Moxies and it takes a while to get an order, a beer, or even your bill. So we ended up paying our bill at 10:14pm; giving us 46 minutes to make it from Yorkdale to Burrito Boyz at 575 College St West we were determined to make it on time and not be the 10:58 last minute customers. We power walk to Yorkdale subway station, the southbound transit arrives just in time; we run up the escalator and run onto the train. All of a sudden over the subway train speaker there is a Transit announcement regarding Dundas West station and a police investigation, we panic; not knowing how were going to get a burrito. Then a second announcements echos through the Transit subway train; the announcement was something about skipping Dundas West station and going straight through to Spadina station our eyes widened with joy! The doors open we jump out of our seats and run out the subway doors, were halfway up the escalator till we hear the three warning beeps and the doors closing, by the time we exit Spadina station its 10:48! 12 minutes to get a burrito! Its close to a 10, 15 minute walk from Spadina station to Burrito Boyz. We figured if we power walk and jog not at the same time but switch back and forth from the two we will make it there for 10:55. The long power strides start and the time is consistently checked we have to make it there before 11; even if we get shin splints. Finally we`re half way there! Its so exciting, that red street light we saw is getting bigger and bigger, we can see it more clearly with every step, we start to jog, and not a slow jog, but a quicker sprint jog, we have to get burritos its 10:55 the time we wanted to be there by; now its not about whether or not we get there with 5 minutes to spare, now its about getting there before 10:58, we do not want to be 10:58 people and will try to do anything to get there before 10:58. We start to jog again, and this time its for a block or a block in a half but a good 2 or 3 blocks straight jogging; we turn onto College and the sign, we can see it clear as day, practically glowing as you see every letter BURRITO BOYZ! We walk in and I ask loudly and out of breath,``WE KNOW YOUR ABOUT TO CLOSE BUT CAN WE STILL GET A BURRITO? ITS FOR A BLOG FOR SCHOOL!"
They look at each other think about it for a quick second, before I interrupt once more to say quickly, "we would be very thankful and appreciative if we can get a quick burrito, were sorry we got here late but we tried to be as early before 11:00 as possible"; the burrito guy who grills all the burritos says sure, and so we approach the cash and order our burritos. "A large chicken and shrimp burrito on whole wheat with EVERYTHING ON IT! EVERYTHING!" "Can I get a large steak and shrimp burrito on whole wheat with EVERYTHING ON it, except tomatoes and green peppers". After our orders are taken down and typed into the cash register the cashier tells us "just to let you know for the future we do close at 11:00"; I replied "I know we're really sorry we meant to make it here sooner, but we were at work and left a little late getting here, and I really needed a burrito so I can write it on my blog". After that she was very understanding and we all continued to have simple conversations about work, and customers, and work; as we continued to wait for our burritos to be made. 
I'm sure your wondering why these were well achieved deserved burritos, its because we made it before 11:00pm (10:58pm) still got two large mixed burritos and they tasted better than ever! Better than I remembered the first time I got a burrito from Burrito Boyz. 

As said before there were two large mixed burritos on whole wheat pita and two Cokes. Just like the burritos from Burrito Bandidos these burritos were juuuicy! Again as said before getting Shrimp in your burrito with any meat is good! The shrimp is warm and soft but still has a crunchy bite to it as well as a bit of chew to it; its a crewnch! Medium spicy; spicy sauce, corn, cilantro, jalapenos, I've started to get jalapenos on my burritos it does taste better; its not too spicy if spice is a good friend of yours. Words from Ethan regarding the steak and shrimp burrito " The steak and shrimp burrito was delicious. The meat was fresh and well cooked the shrimp was juicy. The toppings were all fresh and the burrito was grilled crispier than any other burrito so far; which was nice. This was a similar style burrito to Burrito Bandidos. I do prefer Burrito Bandidos because their burritos are juicy, its not like Burrito Boyz still ain't juicy!" 
And I couldn't agree with Ethan more! I don't hate on any burrito place, there are a few I do prefer over a few others, but I gotta say its tough competition between Burrito Bandidos, Burro Burrito, and Burrito Boyz.
