• Hoboken Burrito: Unassuming Mexican Fare in Mile Square

    Written by:

    The Mile Square is filled with sophisticated and delicious dining options — we have Amanda’s, Dino + Harry’s Steakhouse, Bin 14, and Antique Bar + Bakery to name a few. And while those restaurants boast brag-worthy atmospheres and menus, sometimes we just want some good ol’ grub from an unassuming spot. Enter: Hoboken Burrito. This hole-in-the-wall spot {we say that kindly} is serving up some oh so delish Mexican fare. If we’re being 100% honest here — chances are every time you walk down 4th and pass this spot you think “nope,” but we’re here to tell you IT IS YUM. Read on to learn more about Hoboken Burrito and its unassuming yet tasty food.

    The Food

    ^The shredded chicken tacos {soft tacos} — not the prettiest presentation but SO GOOD. 

    For something a bit more authentic than Chipotle and Qdoba, but yet not as “fancy” as Charritos {meaning it’s the perfect meal to order in and eat on the couch} — Hoboken Burrito is the spot.

    ^Verde enchiladas are buried under all of that cheese + sauce 

    Tacos, quesadillas, burritos, and all of the above is what Hoboken Burrito is serving up. One of our favorites is the shredded chicken taco that comes with rice + beans, Pico de Gallo, and cheese. Get this in a hard or soft shell {depending on personal preference} and it’s the perfect lunch or dinner.

    ^ Steak quesadillas — these don’t come with rice FYI

    The steak quesadillas are also quite good and while these don’t come with rice and beans, it’s filling enough they’re not even a necessity. But if *needing* the meal to come with rice + beans {because, same} — simply order a side of it. Enchilada lovers will also be impressed, too; from mole to verde enchiladas, these rolled up beauties are tasty and filling.

    The Atmosphere

    So as mentioned, when walking by this place, one might not immediately think “yum I want to eat there,” but as we were always taught, never judge a book by its cover. Hoboken Burrito is definitely meant to be a take-out/delivery spot, however, there appears to be a couple of stools by the window to sit at {though they always seem to be occupied by employees}. Basically, just don’t think of this as a place to dine-in.

    Pricing + Delivery

    For pick-up or delivery, call the store at 201-268-7195, but for millennials who don’t like phone conversations {hi, welcome}, Hoboken Burrito is available on Seamless with a $2.00 delivery fee. From experience, delivery has always been fast whether ordering via phone or Seamless and the grub has never disappointed.

    As far as pricing goes: Expect to pay around $8-$15 for a meal {which might seem like a lot for delivery from a no-frills place}, but the portions are very generous. For an impromptu taco craving when walking 4th Street, diners can even grab a single taco for $3.00. There’s also the option to add-on extra guac, cheese, salsa, sour cream, or pico de gallo to any meal for only $1. Check out the full menu here.

    The Verdict

    Give Hoboken Burrito a chance. Nothing beats legit and quick Mexican food from a little no-frills shack. And of course, it’s always important to support local businesses who work hard every day.
