The Mission Mexican Grill (Oxford) Reviews
Newest Review: ... burritos are made up with rice to start. You pick your meat, you can choose from roasted shredded chicken, carnitas (slow roasted pork with specialist seasoning) or steak. You can also choose the type of bean you want, either pinto or black bean. You can then pick your extras; salsa, lettuce, cheese, guacamole and sour cream and the all important sauce. They have three sauces, mild, medium and hot... I can tell you that the hot is not for the faint of heart, I would strongly advise trying out some from the pot on the counter top first! I also find that the strength of the sauce varies between visits, but this is probably because every... more

The Mission is a fabulous Mexican fast food restaurant with two restaurants in Oxford and one in Reading. The simplest way that I've described this place to friends is that it is a bit like Subway but with Mexican food.

I grew up in the US and am as such am a big fan of the Chipotle Burrito chain restaurant prevalent on the Mid-Atlantic seaboard. Chipotle Burritos are literally massive - imagine the length of a baby's arm, and then double the width - and bursting with cilantro rice, your choice of seasoned meat, lettuce, tomatoes, black beans, and of course, cheese! Hardly a health food but hey! That's the US for you! When the Mission opened, I was so excited - I hadn't had a burrito in years, having been in the UK for an extended period at that point.

Ever since I tried burritos in New Mexico, I have such a weakness for Mexican food. All those spices, the beans, the rice with lime and oregano...I'm drooling just thinking about it now. So it was a bit of a surprise to find quite possibly the best Mexican food in Britain right on my doorstep in Oxford! That's a big claim, I know. But I promise you, if you live in Oxford or ever get the chance to go (I do recommend it, but that's another review, I think!) get down to the Mission and try their amazingly good food. So what is The Mission? Well, it's basically a Mexican fast-food place - it's modelled on the American chain Chipotle, which serves fresh Mexican ... Read the complete review
