Downtown Jacksonville has some really neat places to grab lunch. The area is called ”urban core” and the restaurants are packed at lunchtime. Once 5pm rolls around however, downtown Jacksonville becomes a ghost town even though the eateries stay open later. One such place that is jammed at lunchtime is called Burrito Gallery.
A quick counter service place, Burrito Gallery offers up a selection of burritos, tacos, wraps and quesadillas along with nachos, chips and salads. On a recent visit, we arrived after the lunch rush so we were able to order quickly and find a table to eat at.
We ordered the chips and salsa. Not much to say here- it was chips and salsa. Nothing special. Eh.
We also had the Cajun fish tacos which were cooked and spiced just right.
Also we tried the deli tuna salad wrap. The tortilla is filled with tuna salad, guacamole, tomato and lettuce. Normally it is also served with bacon but we asked to have the bacon left off. It was good but nothing real out of the ordinary.
Lastly, we ordered the hummus and veggie wrap with cucumbers, tomatoes, onions, mushrooms, olives, artichokes and romaine lettuce. It was pretty good but more tortilla than filling and I think they left out the artichoke. But it was still pretty good.
Perhaps the best part was the large selection of hot sauces available.
They even have their own homemade BG Green sauce with a warning to use sparingly. Probably quite spicy?
Perhaps we just ordered the wrong things on the menu, however, the prices can’t be beat. The food is definitely a great value for the money. Burrito Gallery isn’t worth a special trip into town but if you are already there for one reason or another, it is certainly a decent choice for grub.
