How did you do that? To get the $5 deal on Tuesdays at Burrito Jonz you need to purchase a drink for each burrito purchased. Then there is tax and tip... Come on Burrito Jonz at least get the price right when you try to promote yourself here... Better food and deals at Taco Bell then Burrito Jonz. Just fed my family for much less the $20 there!!
you guys eat that processed crap when you can go to the tex mex riogrande in washington mills , for the same money and its made from scratch

last time I did math 5.00 + 5.00 + 1.60 + 1.60 + 1.00 + 1.00 = Is almost under $15.00 for 4 people.$15.20 plus tax is a great deal. No tip required at Burrito Jonz. 2 kids drinks are included too!

Our family of four with a 16 and 17 year old would not qualify (or the kids would starve with the small kid portions)... Taco Bell here we come!:-)

Actually I agree with Louie. Rio Grande in Washington Mills is by far the best Mexican in the area. Check it out if you have not already done so!

If you want that greasy feeling then Rio is the best. Good hangover food for sure. But I like Burrito Jonz because it is very healthy.

Is it even worth it to post ANY topic in the Utica area? A good 80% are completely ignorant to life on the outside of this crap-hole area. F...ing morons!
If anybody here has actually traveled, and spent more than $100 on dinner for two, you would know what GOOD FOOD is. It's not just the price I'm talking about.
Wow, a burrito!!! Some meat and rice in a wrap... cumin, maybe some onion. Wow, go Mexican food! They don't serve burritos in real Mexican restaurants.
Yes, you get it now... I just spelled 'restaurants' for you idiots.
Now MAYBE you can spell that! Probably not...

What do you mean, "real" Mexican resturant? Now in Mexico the burrito is more like what we regard as a taco. But a "real" Mexican restaurant in Texas Arizona California -- they certainly do serve burritos, the American version.

You must be one in the 80 percent who never crawled out of the Valley if you don't know that, hahahaha.

Anyhow, I am a burrito connoisseur and have patronized hundreds of Mexican joints in the aforementioned states, and I'm horribly disappointed with Burrito JONZ.

The cheap mofos, their burritos are TOO DAMN SMALL. Sort of tasty, for Utica anyhow, but -- SMALL.

When they BEEF UP the size they'll get a lot more of my business. As it is, I can't take the disappointment anymore, ordering a large and getting a MEDIUM.

Burrito jonz is the ONLY real burrito Shop in Central New York. You know nothing of a "real" burrito. Go take your sad ass to Taco Bell. This is what you deserve numb nuts. John at burrito jonz has been to more burrito stores than you will ever be at. Jonz is like a true california burrito. And they use a 13 inch shell stupid. So unless you are a fat ass I think a 13 inch burrito is pretty dam big.

Have you tried Secret Garden in East Utica? I've had delicious meals every time I've been. If you want something besides Italian and can venture out of Utica, Nola's in Clinton is fantastic. They have a seasonal menu full of interesting and delicious choices.
When I want Italian, I'm still a fan of Grimaldi's. If you don't want greens and chicken riggies, they have a number of great dishes include a delicious veal chop. There are plenty of options besides greens & mozzarella.

Ooops, your sentence doesn't make sense, you left out a couple of words, here you go:

"Burrito jonz is the only real cheap, lousy, amateur, half-assed burrito Shop, without a free salsa bar run by a flaming MORON who posts constantly on Topix for free advertising like the cheap SOB he is and who claims everything on the menu is $5 on Tuesdays when in fact you have to fork nearly $2 for a drink, in Central New York."

There.

That's a more accurate description of your crummy little (and I mean LITTLE) burrito joint.

You're welcome.

Why is it that every restaurant in Utica is still doing the same O'l crap they have been doing since the 80's, With some inexperienced punk line cook trying to come up with the "Next big thing" to hit Utica since Chicken riggies. Itís funny because they all take cheese and melt it over whatever and or put it with greens.
Also funny that everyone and their brother claim to have the best riggies or claim to have been the one that came up with it.
Credit where credit is due, Joe Morelli (donít actually know the spelling) launched the famous Greens of the area. I donít know the story behind that; I do know he has been giving credit for a few other things that he didnít come up with. Chicken riggies never seems to be credited to Bobby Hazelton, but if anyone actually looked up the history about it they would know.
Ok the places Iím talking about have been around for a while to their praise. I think itís just because people from this area have trouble trying new things. But really mozzarella and greens are boringÖcan someone please have some balls and think outside the Utica box for a fewÖ..

Stop bedding down with the primates or that RASH will never go away.

With a crime rate of 52 per one thousand residents, Albany has one of the highest crime rates in America compared to all communities of all sizes - from the smallest towns to the very largest cities. One's chance of becoming a victim of either violent or property crime here is one in 19. Within New York, more than 98% of the communities have a lower crime rate than Albany.

Importantly, when you compare Albany to other communities of similar population, then Albany crime rate (violent and property crimes combined) is quite a bit higher than average. Regardless of how Albany does relative to all communities in America of all sizes, when NeighborhoodScout compared it to communities of similar population size, its crime rate per thousand residents stands out as higher than most.
