The newest spot to satisfy your Tex-Mex needs
A brilliant, new addition to the ever-growing Todd Street precinct is Loco Burrito - a Mexican joint that provides its customers with the freshest, tastiest combinations of flavorsome ingredients in the form of burritos, tacos, nachos, and quesadillas.
Loco Burrito prides itself in preparing the best Mexican food that is infused with a lot of delicious and spicy flavours. Using spices that are blended from authentic Mexican ingredients from Chili Mojo in Adelaide, to the soft corn tacos that are retrieved from Sydney and cooked onsite on a regular basis, Loco Burrito strives to create only the best of the best Mexican food goodness using the native ingredients.
Adorned with a minimalist look - from the beautiful wooden-style walls to the classy lights hanging off the roof of the restaurant, this place is the perfect location to enjoy a meal either in-store or out in the courtyard. If you are lucky enough to visit the food joint when it's not super busy, you can enjoy the beautiful aroma of the food that is prepared fresh, while you enjoy the serene ambience that Loco Burrito brings with it.
What I particularly love about Loco Burrito's style of making food is that its customers are provided with the opportunity to create their own tacos or burritos by choosing their ingredients, similar to a Subway-style meal. Don't be fooled by the size of the kitchen - Loco Burrito has been equipped with a fantastic array of kitchen equipment that allows for your meals to be prepared in the quickest and freshest ways possible.
The hospitality of the staff member who served me was exceptional! His service was extremely professional and he was able to prepare the burrito I ordered in under 10 minutes - a great bonus, for if you're planning to grab a quick lunch between your work breaks! It doesn't take super long for the staff to whip together a fantastic dish, so don't be afraid to try their more exquisite options on the menu. While the meals at Loco Burrito may be on the slightly-pricy-side, it is well worth it. The burrito I tried was oozing with a burst of Mexican delicacies that made it a truly hearty meal.
While I didn't get much of a chance to explore their other options on the menu, there is no doubt that I will soon return to Alice Springs and visit Loco Burrito again. With their brilliant hospitality, their choice of the freshest ingredients, and their tantalizing choice of burritos, tacos and quesadillas, it's close to impossible for me to not leave this quaint, little food joint without satisfying my Mexican cravings. Offering vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free options, Loco Burrito has something to offer for anyone and everyone.
