Comment on the sexist post...
For the previous sexist post, get a life, if you have proof this is the case then that's one thing, but to claim the place is sexist and to possibly hurt business because of your thinking is disturbing. On a recent trip to nothing but noodles I noticed there were only females working there didn't send up any red flags, just something I noticed. Get a life. Food: 5 Ambiance: 5 Service: 5

Best Quick Lunch in Burlington
I love Boloco! The staff is fast and friendly and they will remember your name. The food is fresh, the menu varied and everything is delicious. I always get the Bangkok Thai with Tofu. (I love that they have a tofu option!) Their website is extremely helpful. It gives you all the nutrition info you want, lists all the ingredients, etc. Be sure to get a Boloco card so that you get a free menu item every time you spend $50. Food: 4 Ambiance: 4 Service: 5

Good wraps at a good price
This place isn't Leunig's. It's an unpretentious spot to get a good wrap at fair price, especially when combined with the sizable Bike Benefits discount for bikers. Not everywhere on Church St charges $20+ for an entree! At $6.50 for a healthy good sized wrap, this is a bargain by Church St standards. We love their Mediterranean wrap. The ambiance in summer is great as you can eat outside and gawk at tourists. My only complaint is the menu gets confusing with all of the options. Food: 4 Ambiance: 5 Service: 4

Healthy that doesn't cost you extra!!
I recently tried Boloco for the first time for their actual food (I had had one of their amazing Nutella smoothies before). I ordered the Bangkok (a thai style "burrito") and to start with, it was delicious! Tasted very fresh and great flavors. But I have to say my favorite part about Boloco and what will keep me going back there is that you have healthy options and they don't charge extra for them! Whole wheat tortillas instead of flour, brown rice instead of white, tofu, naturally raised chicken. I loooove that aspect of it. Most places that offer those alternatives charge you an arm and a leg, and typically don't even have good quality, local, humanely raised meat options. I support that in a major way and combining that with great flavors, I plan on frequenting there! Food: 4 Ambiance: 3 Service: 5

just the right size.
So I am on a diet, a healthy food diet that is. Not wanting to eat too much and wanting the food to be good we spent one of those I do not want to cook dinners here. The service was fast. I ordered a California Burrito with guac, a small. The size was perfect, the taste good. Everything was fresh, and just the right size, though I really looked for the guac and wished I had asked for more cilantro. Next time I will get guac on the side and maybe extra chicken. not bad for the price. Food: 4 Ambiance: 3 Service: 4

Try the braised pork
I think they've finally got it together. Their breakfast options are available, their food is hot and delicious (try the braised pork! Mmmmmm... ), and they even have free wifi. Church Street needed a place that served smoothies and Boloco filled that void as well. They are much tastier than their competition - better quality meat than Moe's, better value than Bueno & Sano (who seem to fill their burritos with rice, rice, & more rice), & nicer overall atmosphere than either of them. Don't worry about "racking up a bill" as another commenter has suggested - the chips are around $1 and the burritos are less expensive than Moe's anyway. I like having the option to cut out the chips. :) Food: 4 Ambiance: 4 Service: 3

Great Job!
This is the best burrito in Burlington, and I love the wheat and brown rice options. The smoothies are really good, too. I have had great experiences with the staff at Boloco, and the managers were very helpful and generous when the non-profit I work for asked for a food donation. Food: 4 Ambiance: 3 Service: 5

Not Bad After a Second Try...
I wasn't thrilled with this place after the first time I went. My burrito was flavorless with lots of bland rice. Tim Kavanagh gave me a coupon, so I tried them again and it was really good! I like the chunks of tofu, and normally I'm not a huge fan of tofu. They have some great combinations of flavors, and I'm happy to say I'll be back. Glad I didn't let one bad experience keep me from trying them again! Food: 3 Ambiance: 2 Service: 3

Tasty, different, free item
I checked out their website before going and was excited about having one of their breakfast selections. When we got there, their breakfast was "not yet" available and they said they'll either do it this month or not at all... disappointing to hear. My husband and I opted to share a large Bankok/Thai burrito with chicken. It was tasty, but inconsistent in construction. It took a while to get all the flavors combined in a bite. My husband said "nothing special" but I thought it was a nice change. Service was friendly and fast. We even picked up a Boloco card where you get points for every dollar spent which translate into a free item after a certain level. By getting a card and activating it on-line you automatically get a free item for a later visit. We'll at least go back for that free item :-) The summer burrito with mango salsa, perhaps...

Uninspired
This is a prime example of a restaurant putting more effort into ambiance, going green and humane meats than making the food actually taste good. This was hands down the worst burrito I've ever had. Both the rice and the black beans were under cooked and somewhat crunchy. If you can't cook beans properly, get them canned. Also get a rice cooker. The "steak" tasted like unseasoned, boiled stew meat. I'm all for humane meat, but you have to know how to cook it so its tender and flavorful. The burrito itself was so cold to the touch that actually kind of hurt my hand. If I wanted a cold burrito I'd get an Amy's frozen burrito and microwave it for half the time you're supposed to. The taste was bland as well so I ordered some "salsa" to go with it. The salsa was actually just chopped tomatoes and onions that were not fresh or flavorful. Food: 1 Ambiance: 3 Service: 2
