About Us

Burrito Splendido is quick, fresh and casual Mexican Food served by our friendly friendly staff. (We also have a liquor license because what goes better with a Burrito than a beer...or maybe a Margarita)

At Burrito Splendido we believe that the best food is usually found close at hand. That's why we source our ingredients locally where and whenever possible. All of our flour tortillas are pressed fresh in house using only the best Manitoba Flour. The pork for our Carnitas, the beef for Barbacoa and the chicken for our Adobo Chicken are all found nearby. Our meats are slow cooked, tender and juicy every time whether it be in a burrito, on a soft corn tortilla taco or on top of one of our fresh salads. For a change try our dry rubbed tofu or marinated fish tacos.
