Fat Bastard Burrito

As always, I’m a little late to the game, but the family and I finally had the chance to go to Fat Bastard Burrito on Weston Road.

If you haven’t been, it’s a great place for a fast, good, takeout.

We got two medium chickens and two veggies. They’re loaded—closer in size to a football than a seven-layer, that’s for sure. We did finish them, but barely.

Fat Bastard has a neat take on burritos. They jam as much of everything in as the shell can hold: grilled veggies, beans, rice, guac, salsa, more salsa, hot sauce, Asian noodles, nacho chips, sour cream, corn, peppers, and some things I forget—and that’s not including your filling: beef, chicken, shrimp, and the like.

It’s not Mexican food like I’ve ever had, but it’s still a damned fine burrito. I have some pictures of the inside, but nobody wants to see that. Burritos are a three-sense food.

I’m happy to see the Fat Bastard come to Weston, because I like cheap, good food. Dinner for four was $43, and worth every penny.

But I’m also happy to see them, because they’re a sign of good things. Fat Bastard joins Ginger Pho and Zeal Burger as a new entrant in the mid-market–until very recently, hold-your-belly filled by only P&M’s.

It’s easy to forget how much things have changed. When I moved here 12 years ago, Weston was stuck in the 1970s: you could choose between fish and chips and diner food for your typical $12 Tuesday-night dinner, and there was nothing more expensive.

Now, what a difference! Restaurateurs, like all right-minded people, see that things are getting good in Weston.

  1. Sounds good.

    Grab some to go, tonight and take it over to Memorial Park on Little Ave.,
    for the grand finale of “A Midsummer’s Night Dream”.

    Quirky, fun & energetic performance by folks who clearly enjoy their work – including music by Bob Marley & The Weekend!

    Sure, like me you won’t understand everything delivered. But, grasp hold of the synopsis and follow the dysfunctional characters as best you can.

    And, it’s free!

  2. One thing that bothers me is there standard pricing by size….which means a bean and cheese is the same price as a chicken or beef option…seriously? it would nice nice if they reconsidered there veggie option pricing……but they won’t 🙁

    1. We live in a free trade area with the USA, which spends about $40,000,000,000 every year to subsidize the price of meat and dairy. Think about that when wondering why meat options are cheaper!

  3. Too bad it’s so inconvenient to get to. I used to go to the Fat Bastards downtown, when I could walk or ride my bike to them. I won’t drive out for something quick like that. This place would be so much better at Weston & Lawrence. The Crossroads Plaza is awful.

    1. Dave is so sarcastic. Imagine weston rd and lawrence with decents places to eat and shop….like its 1981 all over again……pre-slumlords.
