I'm not sure why everyone is complaining about this place. Its a new place to get some good food. Its not pizza or a bar on main st which I think is a good thing. They put a lot of work into the place which I think looks great and their food is all home cooked and not frozen unlike taco bell. The money was a loan and not a grant so what is the big problem here. Seems no one is ever happy. Simply put if you don't like it then don't go.

...but not as good as they would be with taxpayer subsidized hot sauce?

I mean what's the issue? Taxpayers subsidize Wal Mart's labor costs. Is it somehow better because Wal Mart is more cunning about how they do it?

did you ever go to a hamburger joint that didn't offer ketchup?

just like a hamburger lots of people like good condiments with their burritos enchiladas taquitos quesadillas & etc.-- everyone knows this especially Mister Winter who is after all the Burrito Pimp.

And yet, when we sat down to eat at Burrito Jonz, there was not a condiment to be found!

the only "condiment" available is Mister Winter's home-made and badly made salsa which suffers from a lack of moisture and juiciness while being insufferably bland and bitter, and for which the customer (the few who find Mister Winter's salsa agreeable that is) must virtually beg and cajole for as it is kept in little plastic containers behind the too-tall counter which also serves the purpose of concealing from the customer how inelegantly the Pimple-Faced Burrito Boy is preparing and wrapping the customer's burrito.

the taxpayers of Herkimer County expect more from their $30,000 investment in Burrito Jonz! Is it too much to expect for a restaurant to offer bottled hot sauce for the customer to anoint a burrito?

Instead Mister Winter who is also known as the Penny-Pinching Gringo is trying to cut corners.

let us compare the appalling absence of condiments at the Burrito Pimp's Burrito Jonz eatery with oh say the Rio Grande Tex Mex taqueria in Washington Mills which let it be known is a prosperous business while Mister Winter single-handedly drove his French Rd Utica location out of business only to later blame customers and the Utica area in general for its collapse.

At Rio Grande, the customer can freely avail herself of a variety of bottled hot sauces as well as a FREE SALSA BAR at which three or four excellent home-made salsas are offered. Rio Grande Tex Mex also provides the customer with free chips but a burrito is $2 more than the reasonable sum that Mister Winter charges ($5.95) and Mister Winter does not supply free chips and salsa.(They are available for $2 extra).

That is smart on Mister Winter's part, because his salsa is so horrible that customers would be rightly aggrieved to be paying for it!

Chipolte. Moes. Burrito Jonz. They're all the same, just fast food style Mexican food. They're all decent, but none of the places are to die for or even be stoked on.

John, real Mexican or Tex Mex food does not include cheap hamburg as the main beef ingredient for tacos, burritos, etc. You clearly don't know good Mexican food. Pedros is absolutely gringo watered down supposed Mexican food. They should be ashamed at what is served. It's amazing how the food is so bland.

This place is the bomb for real. Huge portions for cheap. One of their burritos is about the equivalent of about 25 from Taco Bell.

John, your "Fresc'ah" sauce is very tasty and unique. Too bad your red salsas SUCK!

John, You might want to get that front door fixed. It's literally a pain to shove that door open with ones shoulder to get out of the restaurant. I'd think with all the money you poured into that place, the door would work properly. Or perhaps you are going to blame the dink Al Dorantes. You may also want to rethink the amount of rice that is put into a burrito. My burrito was 90% dry rice. You're not impressing us. What's that stuff that is called Sour Cream? Yuck....

My curiosity over the Burrito Jonz food has been satisfied. Mediocre, too dry, not enough salsa and too much rice. Now I get on with life and not stop back at that corner. It's too bad.

What in the hell did you spend $30K on in that place? It certainly wasn't on that poorly executed sponge painting.

Yeah we noticed he doesn't have out any bottles of hot sauce for customers to enjoy. The tables are empty whereas they should have condiments on them.

For $30,000 can't we get a bottle of hot sauce?

This is one of the reasons John Winter is called,
