Fat Bastard Burrito Co.

Posted by Staff / Listed on January 27, 2011 / review policy

Fat Bastard Burritos TorontoFat Bastard is known for their enormous burritos that don't just come in "Big" but "HUGE". Found on the Queensway near Costco, this burrito joint has quickly established themselves amongst the top burrito places in TO. With unique toppings like roasted onions and peppers available free of charge they definitely stand out not only for their size but their flavour as well.

Yep. They're big alright! (and very tasty too)
More selection than you'd expect.

And - Burrito Boyz just opened a location across the street...
Let the Queensway Burrito Battle begin!!

That's a tough choice - both so GOOOD!

Shouldn't a review mention there is next-to-no seating? It's not like it's downtown where you would expect a hole in a wall. But they were yummy, even if we had to bring 'em all the way home.

Between b-boys and fat bastards, I just flip a coin. Let the Mexican standoff begin. Food along The Queensway rocks!

Eating a steak burrito with all toppings and the hottest sauce as we speak. Figuratively having an orgasm in my pants.

As one who has eaten at both Fat Bastard's & the Burrito Boyz [across the Queensway] I can tell you the better burrito is definitely at FB's. I've always found the meat to be juicier at FB's while the meat at BB's is very dry & made my meal unenjoyable. You can spend your money how & where you want but you should at least consider an opinion of one whose eaten at both places. Good eating gals & guys.

Love this place !!! I've had the pulled pork burrito & the fish burrito which takes just abit longer to make but so worth waiting for !!! And yes there is limited seating but I've usually been lucky enough to find one . I haven't tried BB as of yet to compare however all I have to say is if your looking for a BIG tasty burrito , this is the place !!!! ;)

I find these burritos bland and tasteless. Good hot sauce that's about it.

Went to the Queensway location for a sautéed veg burrito. When I ate the thing I realized it had no sautéed vegetables! Also they use slimy bean paste instead of any actual beans. A rather mushy and inadequate burrito. Vegetarians, go elsewhere.

In town from London but use to live here. Forgotten how much queen west has changed and with this place, for the better. Staff are nice, burritos are insanely massive, not as hot as I thought but just right. Kept me totally full up for the whole day. Definitely worth the trek from bloor and spadina

As a Yank, I had to laugh when I got the "Big" burrito. Did not see how big a "Huge" one was, but we have ones that are literally as big as your head and good tasting to boot. Of course, because of the influx of Mexican immigrants, burrito joints are all over the place, enough so that there can actually be bad places. Anyway, went here during a visit. Had to try a simple steak. It was good. Ingredients seemed fresh (loved the option for jalapenos and cilantro). Wish they had a sauce that I could take with me and pour on the burrito. Love the specialties options choice. Will have to try those next time. Service was very, very friendly, which was nice. Overall, good lunch for the price. Would definitely try again.

I am a huge fan of Fat Bastard Burrito. I've been driving to the Eglinton and Warden location for awhile now to get my favourite dish - the Big Steak and sweet potato naked burrito.
I was really excited when this one opened up just down the street from me on Yonge ...but I was super disappointed when I went the other day.

Whoever owns this location is super cheap. They expect customers to pay a $2.50 premium to select a mix of the main ingredient (just two items), regardless of them being under the same price point. In reality I am probably saving them money (as I would imagine sweet potato costs less than the steak)..but I think it is ridiculous that ONLY this store charges that premium. So I decided to just go for a Big Sweet Potato naked burrito.

What I love about Fat Bastard is how chubby they make their burritos. I can normally make two meals out of a Big naked burrito. As I watched the guy at the Yonge street location make my bowl I was annoyed. He sprinkled every item on it...and I mean sprinkled. There couldn't have been more than a tablespoon of rice. When I asked for more I could have easily counted the grains of rice hitting that box. Then with the addition of 3 small slices of sweet potato I really questioned how this might make a real burrito that wasn't flat or how TINY is lil' must be.

I have nothing against Fat Bastard...but whoever is running this location is cheap..I know it's not about their policies because I haven't had this issue EVER at the other location. This location has definitely lost mine and my friend's business. Going that extra distance makes it worth it. Value for money you're better off going elsewhere.
