Burrito Libre - The Park

Looking for a Southwestern burrito. I found Burrito Libre in the Park "Sherwood Park". Top 10 listed restaurant with good reviews. Located within the shopping center parking lot, fairly easy to find. Cookie cutter concept resembling Taco-Del-Mar and Mucho Burrito all trying to compare with Chipoltle. Burrito Libre fits in the middle puts out a decent product.

Settled on a regular Chicken burrito on brown wrap. Long grain rice, black beans, onions and peppers. Topped with corn, cabbage, hot salsa, and chipoltle. Good size, not overly stuffed were it's busting at the seams.
Side of chips and hot salsa to finish it off. I like that the chips were not greasy. The salsa wasn't overly salty could've had a bit more heat to make it hot. Under $9 for both burrito, chips and salsa. For the price paid I got a decent satisfying meal. If your looking for a cheap alternative take a break from Subway and give it a try.

State and Main - Lethbridge

Highly recommended by the hotel. State and Main in Lethbridge needed to be checked out. Sister restaurant of Original Joes chain. Recently opened building was an old East Side Mario's. Decent location within the Walt-Mart parking lot. Ordered the Beer Can Chicken, with mixed veg (salad) and stuffed potato. Rub on the outside very flavorful, very dark looked burnt when then put the plate down. More of a blackened chicken. Chicken was chewy with a rubbery texture, slightly on the cold side. Stuffed potato was very dry and cool. Neither were hot almost seemed to be microwaved. The best item on the dish was the mixed vegetables (salad). Service was very friendly and attentive. Popular spot as seating filled up very quickly. Based on the food quality I wouldn't venture a second try. State and Main on Urbanspoon
