Burritos Express in Downtown Boston Seized by the City

A Mexican restaurant in downtown Boston has been seized by the city, though it is not yet known whether its other locations have also been shut down.

According to food writer MC Slim JB, Burritos Express on Bedford Street is shuttered, with a sign out front saying that it has been ordered closed by the Boston trial court. It is too early to tell if the eatery will reopen, and the status of its locations in Dorchester, Jamaica Plain, and Hyde Park is unknown at this time; as soon as we find out more information, we will post an update here. (Ed note: It appears that the Dorchester and Hyde Park locations are called Burritos Pizzeria; no information can be found on the Jamaica Plain location other than an address on the restaurant's website.)

[June 25 update: It appears that Burritos Express is closed for good.]

Burritos Express's menu includes chicken, chorizo, steak, and vegetarian burritos as well as breakfast dishes, Mexican sandwiches, tacos, and quesadillas. The Boston location first opened approximately 13 years ago.

The address for this restaurant is: Burritos Express, 86 Bedford Street, Boston, MA, 02110. Its website can be found at
