We go there constantly. I love their huge burritos, especially the bbq pork And while they are best known for burritos, their flavored wings are very reasonable and taste wonderful. I like the garlic ones the best.

And there is no better place to go on your birthday, where they give you an enormous Margaritta that is big enough for for people for free.

The best place to sit is upstairs by the window overlooking Lark Street. If you don't want waitress service then downstairs may do, but it is kind of dark an dingy there

The service is pleasant and efficient and I think anyone visiting Albany should go there at least once.

Cons: NONE

It seems a good idea has given way to a place that now relies on it's "History". The tables are filthy, and that makes me wonder about the kitchen, out of view. The employees seem more worried about tips than actual work performance. My burrito was cold to boot. The Schenectady location is better, great upstairs. However, the Lark St. version is just a dirty mess......

Pros: Hearty Burrito's

Cons: Dirty tables, Unkempt looking workers

I used to fancy Bomber's much more than I do today. If you are looking for expensive and overly sweet drinks in a loud environment, then this is your place. But if you are looking for a burrito with rice that is cooked all the way through and cheese that may actually be melted...then this is not for you. Have some of the drinks first and you will not notice, but if you want a burrito that is good when you are sober, head to Burrito Joe's on Columbia Street (Just off of Pearl). You will not be disappointed.

Pros: Fast food (if you don't order Veggie Chicken Nugget burrito), large drinks.

Cons: poor service, undercooked, over-hyped food.

The ingredients are far better than any "Mexican" place I've been so far, but I'm from Arizona, and it doesn't cut the salsa. The food tastes like absolutely nothing. And all the fresh ingredients in the world can't make up for the fact that Mexican food is all about flavor.

We were in town for a wedding and read about Bombers online. We saw the menu online and were immediately attracted to the super cheap prices. It was around 8:30pm on a Saturday. It was a comfortable size that we didn't feel lost but still open enough to avoid the girl celebrating her 21st birthday. We waited 15 minutes for a table but the bar kept us entertained and had some good drink specials. We got the mini tacos and nachos supreme as apps and the veggie burrito and beef tacos as our entrees. The apps filled us up and we ended up taking home the entire entree. Did not even take one bite of them. We were stuffed and the food was so good. Would def go again.

Bomber's is a pretty chill place with a good atmosphere and ginormously-hugetastic burritos.

Not the fanciest place, but heck, if you want fancy, go to some place with a hard-to-pronounce french name. If you want to eat Mexican-ish food with your friends, go to Bombers.

Simply stated: unless you're wearing a suit, you have to go here.

The food is absolutely incredible. Mind you, it's not really Mexican food in the traditional sense, but after you taste it you won't care. The burritos are HUGE (but prepare to get a little messy), reasonably priced, and you can choose between speed (downstairs) or ambiance (upstairs). Getting a table on weekend nights and on trivia nights can be very difficult, and they don't take reservations, but the wait for a table can be easily mitigated by a few good drinks at the bar.

I love this place, and unless you can't deal with a young crowd I don't know why you wouldn't.

I would say Bombers is more hype than quality. The burritos are sub-par at best, except for the BBQ Tofu, and thats mostly just because I like BBQ Tofu. There are better places to get a burrito... The service is usually pretty poor and drinks are a little pricier than average. The food leaves me thinking "Where is the Love!?"

Bombers is probably the worst place in all of Albany to get a burrito (or any food, for that matter). The burritos are tasteless and always fall apart - you are lucky if the meat is warm even if you eat in! The Nachos are disgusting and I think they put brown sugar in the meat?

The birthday margarita (as others have said) is based upon whether or not the staff is in the mood to serve you one. Which is another thing, the staff is rude and inattentive.

Overall, a fun place to hang out if you are drinking cheap beer late at night - but stay away from the food (because it's gross) and drinks (because they are expensive).

If you want a good burrito or any other taco/nacho/mexican type food go to Moe's! Much better!

Pros: $1 Utica Clubs... that's about it.

Cons: Overpriced drinks, awful food, rude staff.

Maybe I have low expectations, but I think Bombers burritos are the bomb. They're huge (almost as big as your face) and really tasty. I can barely walk out of the place when I visit. They have more than just Burritos too, and an upstairs bar. If you like burritos, give this place a try.

Although they advertise a "free giant birthday margarita", be wary of this. On the night of my birthday (a Saturday) at midnight I ordered one only to be refused on several grounds:
1) they'd made too many already
2) it costs a lot to make one (what??)
3) it wasn't my "actual" birthday that day so it was against the rules because some people try to come twice. Offering to write my name down so I couldn't come back tomorrow didn't fly with them either. As if I would come back again with a group of friends to go bar-hopping on a Sunday night anyway.

Ridiculous. I'd had friends order the margarita under the same circumstances before.
AND we'd all ordered a round of drinks and they were (as others have pointed out) overpriced. $9 or $10.

The food - everybody raves about the burritos, but I found them lackluster and way too huge. The sweet potato fries are good, but that's about it.

All in all, doesn't live up to the hype.

This review is strictly about the food-- we've only ordered take out so I can't speak for the atmosphere, drinks, etc. When we first moved to Albany about 4 months ago, we heard rave reviews about Bombers. Our first night in Albany we got burritos to go, and they were horrible. They were cold and soggy and my boyfriend and I could not finish them. We hadn't returned until recently, when we decided to give it a second shot. He ordered the vegetarian burrito and I ordered the loaded nachos. His burrito was once again TERRIBLE (same problem, cold and soggy, fell apart right away, no flavor), and my nachos were equally bad (cheese was not melted, chili was awful, we could've made the same thing at home for a lot cheaper and it would've tasted better). Neither of us finished our dinner.

Being a burrito lover, I really expected a lot more for a place that receives such great reviews. We were very disappointed. I would not recommend Bombers.

As pathetic and low budget their commercials are, I guess i should not have expected anything great, but i was really disappointed with the place. Everyone talks about how great this place is to go to and everything but i must have missed it. The food was not that great and was expensive, not to mention the place was a hole in the wall. It was located kind of underground and it was just terribly decorated and maintained. College students seem to love it, but i just don't see why.

Pros: Strongbow, Fun environment

Cons: kind of small

Food is decent and not that expensive (not as cheap as everyone raves about). Portions are not impressive for the price, either.

Service is non-existant, the downstairs (non-bar area) took quite a while to be served. Upstairs (the bar area) almost necessitated sending a search team to locate the food ordered about an hour ago. Subsequently, I ate a cold burrito and dried up fries. Bumbers.

HOWEVER, don't order anything from the bar but a special. The menus missing prices on most drinks (oddly enough) and you may need an oral surgeon to reconnect your jaw when the bill comes and you and a few of your friends owe a Burrito Bar around $90 for three quesedillas, two orders of fries, and 7 drinks between you. Our own fault, but about $9.00 for a drink is a bit out of line (especially when it's 70% ice).

Don't believe the hype.

Everyone's only talking about Bomber's burritos (which are awesome), but what about the fact that they have 20 beers on tap in a cool lounge/bar atmosphere with .25 cent wings on Monday nights.....something to think about.

Not much to say. Bombers is the best place in Albany to get food. The food is great and the atmosphere comfortingly original and classic. How do you not love a place with the Mrs. Pac-Man game?

Unfortunately, this popular dive has let success get to its head. Customer service is second rate...perhaps they should rethink the open kitchen concept.
