Welcome to Burrito Max

Burrito Max is sits in the heart of Kenmore Square (Map), just beneath the CitGo sign. They have one of the largest burrito selections in the Boston area, offering different kinds of tortillas (whole wheat, chili, tomato, and spinach) and a variety of non-traditional burrito options.

They're known locally for employing a great many rock and rollers. If I remember right, a compilation CD of all the bands that had members employed at Burrito Max (Piebald) was kicking around Planet Records before Kenmore Square was ruthlessly decimated by Hotel Commonwealth.

Burrito Max has closed their doors. As in - permanently.

I speak for all of the former employees at Burrito Max. We're heart broken. We'll miss all of you loyal customers.

Much Love,

It's been a few months, and I'm still distraught about losing Burrito Max. Just, lost, ya know? It's like, when there's a restaurant, or bar...or burrito place that just meshes with your personality and then it closes you feel like a little piece of yourself is gone.

And now I can't get a good Burrito anywhere! I like TexMex burritos, not these "authentic" style, pretentious burritos. I want flour tortilla, jar kind of salsa not pico de gallo, meat, rice and cheese. I want to have it served by punk rockers, and people who won't look at you funny when you say "No Beans!"

My friends all say "You should try Anna's!" My friends are morons. I've tried Anna's, it's a yuppie burrito.

I was feeling sentimental, so I went trolling the web to see if I could find an old Burrito Max logo. Thanks for at least putting up the menu!

BBQ Pork Quesidilla forever!

Good riddance. Tried Burrito Max several times over the years. It was aweful every time. For a name like that, it should have had at least good size burritos.

I'm not that picky. But, the blogger's review paralleled my view of the MAX.

i came here, another lost burrito max lover's soul, looking for a better burrito.

sorry you had some lame times there, but you should've just gotten a "regular" burrito, not that new "special" shit they tacked on right before they closed. i went to college in kenmore sq for 4 years, and i spent many hours between classes eating burritos and chips & pico while staring out the window or reading [laugh] the metro. i didn't even know they were closing until after they closed and i was and still am devastated.

their burritos WERE huge, and cheap, and i miss them. where else could you get a giant burrito that would fill you up for days and a soda for $5? no where. there was a lot of hype about anna's so i sent my neighbor out on bicycle to get us some, but alas, they were small, boring, and they didn't even know what pico de gallo was. never do that again.

these more "authentic" places' food is great and all, but half the time i can't understand the person taking my order and they can't understand me, and they overcharge me for whatever it was that i didn't really order that they couldn't understand.

if i had the money, i woulda paid the rent for you max, i would have.

This is bullshit. I walked all the way over there tonight and ended up eating Taco Bell (not that I don't enjoy Taco Bell as well). But Burrito Max had its own flavor, halfway between authentic and not authentic at all.

Where the hell am I going to get an apple crispito and a sideways glare from the cashier? I can't believe this bullshit. Everything good gets TAKEN AWAY. I'm definitely pissed Burrito Max is gone.
