It's Lunch o'Clock at... Changos

For the next instalment in my series on where to lunch in Manchester I will be talking about the famous Changos. If you’re from Manchester you will most likely have heard about this burrito place situated on Oxford Road. They have a cracking lunch time offer which results in a long queue snaking its way down Oxford Road every Monday to Friday. I have been meaning to go to Changos for so long now but the queue is always too long by the time I get there. However I have heard so many rave reviews from friends that I had to give it a go.

So firstly yes, if you’re going to go for the lunch menu then expect to queue a little. I got there just after noon and I queued for about 10 minutes so it wasn’t too bad. However I have seen the queue be much longer which I guess is a good testament to the quality of food as there is a big choice of eating establishments nearby, it feels like there’s a new place popping up every week. Controversially in recent weeks there is a new burrito place called Chilangos that has opened up across the road from Changos – you can’t make this stuff up!

But back to Changos for now: what makes their lunch menu worthy of a long queue day after day in central Manchester? Well for one there is the price, at £4.95 for any medium chicken or vegetarian burrito, soda (bottomless) and nachos it’s a bargain. Especially when you consider the likes of Bar Burrito down the road who charge £5.30 for a small burrito on its own. And they offer free guacamole which seems like it should be a given but in most places these days they charge you.  But the main reason for the queue is the taste, they’re packed full of flavour and made with fresh ingredients making them a firm favourite amongst Manchester’s burrito lovers.

IMHO: I rate this high on the lunch list in Manchester, at £4.95 it’s a great offer. Obviously one downside is the queue so make sure you get there early. But as they say, all good things in life are worth waiting for!
