The line DOES move very quickly. The food was GREAT. Johnny was welcoming to a "first timer." If I lived in Charlotte and worked downtown, I would be a frequent customer! If ever back in Charlotte, Johnny Burrito is on my list for sure! Given...More

Definitely worth the wait in line. Very friendly staff and the food is always fresh and delicious. Run daily specials so you can change up things. Don't forget to get the hot sauce.

Odd location but the 12 person line told me this was a good option. Did not disappoint! Great selection of fresh ingredients. Diablo sauce was a hot addition!

Co-worker recommend we go here. Went at 11:30 am and we were about the 15th in line. Love the local small town charm to this place. You can get any type of burrito you want from mild to "sign a waiver" hot. I opted for...More
