I honestly don't know why Harry's has such bad reviews on here. First of all, always look at what you're ordering - get a whole wheat tortilla instead of the normal one. Their brown rice also takes better. Their food tastes kind of different if you eat there or order in - I prefer ordering in my burrito, but their nachos are delicious if you eat there. Their margaritas are also quiet good.

There was a time when Harry's was decent. Now it is awful. Food here is comprised of the cheapest ingredients and is utterly flavorless. I don't understand how they remain in business.

Growing up a few blocks from Harry's, it used to be a staple bi-weekly timesaving weeknight meal when mom didn't feel like cooking. Over the past ten years, Harry's has gone downhill from delicately spiced, authentically California-style burritos to completely lackluster and bland food wrapped in tasteless tortillas. This is not worth the money any more.

My husband ordered a vegetarian burrito for me, cost $8.50, and it was a flour toritlla filled with flavorles rice and beans. When I called to ask about that, they said there was a "super burrito option" for more money where they add some shreded lettuce. These ingredients cost about 50 cents, and it tastes like it.

I emailed them the following; Being somewhat of a connaisseur of nachos and quesadillas, I was looking forward to my first visit to your restaurant at Columbus & 71st street. My friend and I ordered Nachos Todos & Quesadilla Grande plus 2 beers. We sat upstairs next to the loud music. We were the only ones there at 1145am. All the food arrived cold to lukewarm; I asked it to be reheated. The plate came back piping hot but the quesadillas was still lukewarm. I don't even think it was a quesadilla as everything came tumbling out of the tortilla. The best nachos ever are served at Claim Jumper, a restaurant in San Diego. And since your 'Who are We' advertise the fact that the idea for Harry's Burritos came from San Francisco, this might be of interest to you. Claim Jumper's nachos are served in a flat fashion, not a mountain of who knows what, guaranteeing that each nacho is covered with melted cheese, beans, optional chili or other meat. Guacamole and cream are served on the side. It is delicious. Around the corner from your place, at Santa Fe, quesadillas are much smaller but of a greater quality. Quesadillas should be able to hold its contents without oozing all over the plate. They should be served nice and hot or nice and very warm, not cold. Three of us were supposed to come by on Friday, but I guess we won't. Just wanted you to know about our lukewarm experience.

Do yourself a favor and steer well clear of this place. The noisy, cramped, service-free restaurant is bad enough... but if you make the mistake of getting delivery from them, get ready for a really annoying evening. Of 3 items on my recent order, 2 were completely wrong. One was a beef burrito in place of a soy-based one (I'm vegetarian and furious about this). The other was an enchilada instead of nachos (they don't even sound alike). In delivering the replacements, they want me to send back the wrong items - I guess they plan to re-use them...? Even once you finally get the right food (over an hour later), it's not much to speak of. I will never be going to Harry's or ordering from there again, despite it being the only real affordable Mexican place in the neighborhood (Rosa is good, but kind of pricy).
