Free Burrito Day comes to Canberra

By johnboy - 18 July 2012 43

free burrito day

Guzman Y Gomez have certainly got the punters in Sydney raving about them.

Now they’re coming to Canberra (which one hopes if nothing else will encourage Zambreros to stop stinging me $2 for a miserable smear of avocado).

What’s of interest is they’re promising Free burritos on 3 August between 11am and 8pm at their Canberra Centre store on Bunda Street.

UPDATE 02/08/12 10:43: This in from the GyG team:

Hi John,

We were really looking forward to GYG Canberra opening this week but unfortunately due to unforseen circumstances and a bit of bad luck we’ve had to delay our opening.

Our Free Burrito Day at GYG Canberra will now be Thursday 16th August, 11am-8pm.

Hope to see you all there to help us celebrate!

Regards,
Alison

UPDATE 16/08/12 11:46: It seems a free burrito comes with a wait.

What’s Your opinion?

JB, did you check GYG’s menu?

Guac: $2

Perhaps if Mad Mex come to town….

Apart from Mad Mex being the worst of the 3..

Mad Mex are opening up at Westfield Belconnen.

What? Mad Mexico in Sydney was leagues ahead of Zambrero’s last time I went there.

Really ??? Hmm had a terrible burrito from the Harbourside store. Was so bad I didn’t finish it. I guess I’ll need to give then another chance when they open in Belconnen

According to the sign in the new-ish food court (the one with KFC), either Zambreros is moving to where the Italian place was, or a new one is opening up there.

i second that on the miserable smear of avocado in civic. not to mention the generous serve of attitude. last time i asked them to actually add a bit more (i am a vego so the beans and avocado are the replacement in the price of a burrito for meat – so seriously, don’t be stingey) and they refused – in fact the guy was incredibly rude. i shrugged and walked out. see ya zambreros! yay for the arrival of GYG!

What zambreros you frequent, Jb? I go to Weston and Woden and they re both very generous with avocado. ( although it’s certainly not guacamole.)

We missed out on Taco Time and Taco Bell in the 1980s, now we’re finally getting Mex fast food. Canberra finally comes of age.

Futile comment: It comes free with the vego one.

johnboy 5:15 pm 18 Jul 12

It’s not the $2, it’s the amount you get for it.

But we will see what competition brings in this space.

You had me at Free Burrito.

Bugger! I’m out of town on the 3rd…

But very happy that they’re coming to town; their flavour is much more akin to the wonderful Mexican food I remember from visits to California and Arizona (and better than Tijuana!).

poetix 4:42 pm 18 Jul 12

I hope the vego ones are free too. We are a poor oppressed race, in search of an advocate. Or an aovocado, anyways…

Did you check their menu? Their guac is 2 bucks as well. I think you’re hopes be slim.
