There were many  choices to choose from until we finally decided on the STEAK BURRITO (Php 340)
This included rice, meat, beans, chili, salsa, sour cream, cheese and greens. The beef was naturally marinated for hours in garlic, ancho and citrus marinade, then grilled.
We opted to "WET MY BURRITO" (addtional Php 90)
They poured over a special sauce on top and blow-torched it.
The STEAK BURRITO was HUGE so you better share it with someone unless you're training for the MAN VS GODZILLA BURRITO contest.
The contest mechanic is for you to finish their Godzilla Burrito, weighing 2.5kg, in just 90 minutes or less. 
Winners get bragging rights T-shirt and their Godzilla Burrito for free. LOSERS pay up Php 1,000.
They should give out trophies for this - seriously! this is just crazy! :p
They offer margaritas - with or without alcohol as well as imported beers (mostly mexican beers)
Our meal wouldn't be complete without NACHOS so we ordered the BALL PARK NACHOS (Php 255)
It was the same as the NINE LAYER DIP, but with cheese sauce.
It contained nachos (of course), beans, cheese, sour cream, jalapenos, olives, guacamole, pico de gallo, corn salsa and cheese sauce.
I truly wished I asked the staff to put all the ingredients on the side because the nachos got soggy after, BUT, they were still yummy.
FOOD was really good in Ristra's.
Service was terrible... very terrible.
Ambiance was nice; however, they need to start cleaning the place SOON or else DROPPINGS will definitely accumulate in time.
I wasn't sure if these were rat droppings, or lizard droppings but they're definitely droppings!!! 
I know, they're so gross! Fortunately, we were already done eating when we noticed this.
Even if the food was good, we will NOT be coming back here because we don't know if the foods are clean or not :)
I hope they improve.

  3. Was planning to try it out but...nevermind hehe.. dirty pala :)

  4. Ayayay, that is one giant burrito! But I think by nature they really should be big right?
