Win Lunch from Lucy’s Mexican Cantina

You know what was completely lost in yesterday’s MomoMadness Lucy’s Cantina Royale (aka Lucy’s Mexican Cantina) opened Wednesday on 34th Street and 8th Ave.  Anybody check it out?  I’m still thinking the menu might be a tad bit too expensive to be a Midtown Lunch, but I’m willing to keep an open mind and check it out.  They actually invited me to have lunch there today, on the house, but you know I don’t roll like that.

I will, however, accept free food on behalf of my readers!

I floated the idea to Lucy’s, and they agreed to give one Midtown Lunch reader a $50 gift certificate to the newly opened restaurant.  All you have to do is post your favorite burrito of all time (ingredients or location or both) in the comments below, and you’re entered to win.  The gift certificate will be good for an entire year, but hopefully you’ll use it soon- because we want a full report! Good luck freeloaders.  (A winner will be drawn at random on Tuesday at Noon.)


  • I don’t have a fav. of all time but always welcome free food.

    If I have to choose, then possibly Chipotle’s with chicken and/or steak.

  • Chicken burito from Baja Fresh.

  • I’d probably go with the tacos over burritos if I won…but would review their burritos for Midtown Lunch.

  • I dunno, ever since you excalimed “Indian Burrito, where have you been all my life!”, no other burrito can surpass the Kati Roll (aka, the Indian Burrito).

    So in that case, my favorite “burrito” is the kati roll from the biryani cart :)

    p.s. Until I had Indian food, mexican food was my favorite.

  • The Bob Marley Burrito (jerk chicken) from the defunct Burritoville on 9th ave and 42nd….

    In the wake of Hurricane Katrina, one positive trend swept the city of New Orleans: The Mobile Taco Stand.

    Prior to Katrina, the Mexican population in the city was non-existant. However, the economic opportunities created by the rebuilding effort drew tens of thousands of Mexicans to the city that had never been there before. With them came their food.

    My favorite burrito of all-time is from Taqueria Sanchez – A trailor parked in the lot of a bar in Jefferson Parish, Louisiana. I would drive a half hour to get my hands on the $6 standard burrito. Nothing special ingredients-wise, except for the freshness and authenticity.

    Also – the hot sauce at Taqueria Sanchez was homeade and hands-down the best I’ve ever had. It was my craving of the hot sauce that drove me to that parking lot time and time again. The disparity between crappy pre-made hot sauce and quality homemade hot sauce is enormous. I am so thankful to have been a part of that uniquely interesting moments of food history.

    Ramerioz in San Diego Cali, pretty much any one in Cali

  • Ground beef, black and refried bean from Juanito’s in Red Bank New Jersey.

  • I’m with Adam. Kati roll me please!
    (otherwise, I guess the burrito at Poblanitas wasn’t too bad, but on the East coast I’m more a taco fan)

  • This is definitely a non-traditional burrito, but it’ll score me points with the readers here…

    BACON BURRITO DOG from the famous Pink’s Hotdogs (out in LA) contains:

    i do love a kati roll. i also enjoy blockheads burritos w/ chicken…i think they have one with bbq flavors that i like.

  • Oh shoot I misread. Of “all time” well then, ignore my last post. Favorite burrito is the chile verde burrito at Moreno’s in Santa Cruz. Though their Al Pastor chimichanga takes second place. It’s a gut-bomb!

  • @ Jeff, I love Pinks! The best hot dogs ever! (unless you do a Chicago dog -which I need to try soon! But it looks amazing)

    Carnitas super burrito from Anna’s Taqueria in Boston w/ refried beans, salsa, guac, sour cream jalapenos and hot sauce.

  • 1st burrito I ever had was my favorite. El Faro in the mission district of SF about 20 years ago. It was phenomenal, and I’ve never had it’s equal.

  • carnitas super burrito @Anna’s in BOS yrs ago…YUMMM

  • My favorite burrito was at La Costa Taqueria in LA — it was a breakfast burrito with a deliciously spicy chorizo with fresh pico de gallo and guacamole, three egg whites and some kind of heavenly queso blanco or queso fresco. Choose me to be the official ML freeloader!

    Best burrito I ever had was in a border town in Reynosa, Mexico. I can’t recall the name of the restaurant, but it was on a street that the locals called “Taco Street.”

    I was also duped into buying a small cask of tequila that I later discovered to be just plain old Mexican water. Lesson learned, burrito enjoyed.

    OMG! ^SAME AS ABOVES. Carnitas super burrito @ Annas Taqueria in Boston with rice, refried beans, guac, sour cream, 3 different types of salsa, and hot sauce! TO DIE FOR.

    PLUS, their nachos and salsa. Perfect hint of cilantro. So fresh, So good.

  • Arizona Burrito at Filiberto’s…steak, potatoes, cheese, pico de gallo…nothing hits the spot better at 4AM
