Burrito Box delivers.
From 44th St to 76th St; From 6th Ave to 12th Ave.
Vegan chili and a decent selection of burritos that can be made with seitan. Note: We called them on Jan. 15, 2010, to inquire about what brand of soy cheese they use. The person who answered the phone would not check the package for us. When we offered to call back at a more convenient time, he said that no one would be able to check for us. So, if you still decide to patronize this restaurant, please inquire about the brand of soy cheese in order to determine whether it is vegan.
Review by blaupunk on April 26, 2011:
- I work around the block from Burrito Box and have gone there for lunch five or six times. They appear vegan friendly, nod when you ask for your item in vegan form, etc. I typically order a Vegan burrito with spinach, portabella mushrooms, and tofu ("no cheese or sour cream please"). Today - after 5+ times ordering this - I was informed that the brown rice is made with butter ("Is that ok?" No!). Aggravating.

- I can't handle the fact that Burrito Box's only review is spam about NY Asian Escorts, so here's a real review.
This place is great, actually. Besides V-spot, they might even have some of the best Mexican grub in the city (which isn't saying much, admittedly). It's very small and not veg, but they have some surprisingly good vegan options. Their seitan is deliciously seasoned and grilled up with bell peppers and onions and their guac is quality. Since the tortillas are nothing special, my favorite thing to get is their rice and beans platter with seitan and guac (listed mysteriously under side items). It's always too much to eat. If you're in the theater/columbus circle area, and especially if you're with omnis, it's a good, cheap option--much better than Chipotle and Blockheads.
