About Carlito Burrito

Simply, there is no place like Carlito Burrito in Brighton. This is the most authentic Mexican joint – the only one in town 100% Mexican owned and operated – and by far the most fun. Right by the city centre on York Place, Carlito Burrito hums with a unique vibe born of its colourful festival-inspired decor, eye-catching decorations (yes, there are plenty of Catrina masks), bubbly staff and the heavenly smell of their mouthwatering Mexican food, inspired by street-food dishes but reaching into all corner of the Mexican culinary canon. Of course the burritos are to die for (and probably already known to many a festival-goer, since Carlito Burrito have been one of the most popular food trucks at Glastonbury over recent years) but the fish tacos are ‘lifechanging,’ the Octopussy (perfectly cooked octopus, chorizo and black beans in a ranchera sauce, served with totopos) is always popular and the daily changing ceviche is always a bomb of flavour, freshness and fiery Mexican flair.

I've lived in Brighton 3 years and have never visited Carlito Burrito.....boy have I missed out. Went for my boyfriends birthday and the atmosphere and service was impeccable. Food was delicious and where do I even start with those beautiful cocktails. I will be visiting again and again. I can't wait to show my friends and family this place. The decor was also lovely

We visited here after reading some of the great reviews online. Sadly, not all the options on the menu were available due to the crazy Bank Holiday crowds, but the tacos we tried were delicious. The salsa was a bit boring, but the halloumi more than made up for it. We were amused that the waitress describe the papas (tortilla chips) as "like authentic doritos"!! Haha. Great food and will visit again.

Love it! Best Mexican restaurant in the Brighton area. I love a good Michelado - best one outside of Guadalajara. And the fish tacos are delicious!!
