Jonesing for burritos? Hit up Tomatillo Taco Joint, now in Stamford

Where does OmNomCT pick up some great Mexican grub when we’re jonesing for a burrito fix?  That would be Tomatillo in Greenwich, right on Route 1.  In fact, we might have just ordered some burritos with a side of guac for delivery last night.  We might have, that’s just hearsay.  Our fondness towards Tomatillo (we did have a few points of contention, though) lead us to write a review of them back in January of 2013, and now we’ve got some great news to share with you.  Tomatillo Taco Joint is now in Stamford.

Burrito at Tomatillo GreenwichTheir restaurant is located at 114 Broad Street, where Morelli’s Pizza/Morelli’s Double Burger used to be, right by Zaza.  This is now their third location (they are also in New Haven) and here’s why you should checking them out for lunch or dinner:

First of all, after you’ve had a burrito at Tomatillo you won’t look at fast food burritos the same way again.  We’d take a Tomatillo burrito any day over Chipotle or any of the fast food Mexican chains around (though we’d never eat at Taco Hell).  Think of Tomatillo as the Subway of Mexican food, where you can build and customize your burrito choice.

Burrito size comparison at Tomatillo Taco Joint in GreenwichDan’s favorite:  braised beef, cilantro & lime rice, black beans, habanero chili sauce, sauteed onions and peppers, lettuce, cilantro, chopped tomato, red onion, black olives, and pickled jalapenos.

Kristien’s favorite:  hacked chicken, cilantro & lime rice, black beans, pico de gallo, sour cream, guac, shredded cheese, lettuce, cilantro, chopped tomato, red onion, and pickled jalapeno.

Guacamole with salsa on top at Tomatillo Taco Joint in GreenwichYou can also build your own tacos (they come in orders of 3), burrito bowls, and even taco salads.  When you put all of that together, we’re talking about 1,536 different combinations of build your own options at Tomatillo. We also highly recommend their guacamole.  It comes fresh, full of flavor, and has a nice scoop of salsa on top.

Also on the menu are quesadillas, enchiladas, chili, nachos, tres leches cake, churros, chipotle brownies, smoothies, mixed drinks, and imported Mexican drinks like Coca-Cola and Jarritos.

Tomatillo is definitely a good choice if you want some fresh, quick, and flavorful Mexican fast food.  Although our experience with the fish tacos wasn’t a stellar one at all, we’re willing to try the other tacos and see how they stack up.  

Stay hungry my friends…
