After months of walking by the sign, popped into Bolet's Burrito (a bit apprehensively) in the name of supporting a local joint. (Lower Sherbourne just south of Front and just north of the Esplanade)
The surrounds are no frills but the burrito was solid - and cheap. Style is very similar to Burrito Boyz and about 40% less in terms of price.
(Burrito Boyz has been my preference in TO - we don't need to compare relative to other cities, as has been done often on this board. My issue with the ZTeca and Freshwest type places are the fast food style tubs of meat that arent cooked to order. Even if they turn over in a few minutes, I want to have the feeling that my whole burrito (incl meat) is being grilled fresh for me.)
Same kind of made to order style on the grill, nearly identical, generously stuffed toppings (plus sweet potato). I had the daily special - tuna melt (I know, not classic Mexican but still good) - for 4.99. 1/4 Mexican chicken plus rice past 3 pm is also sold for 3.99. I will return over the next few weeks to try a meatier option without having to wait in line for 20 minutes or more for something similar at Boyz.
Bolet's may very well be a good DT East hideaway.
In case you're interested, they also have a 4 or so bar 2-person bar tables if you want to sit for a few.
