I've been to the Sharky's Burrito Co. in Abilene, Tx a couple of times so far and it was great. The prices aren't bad and the food is quite good. They've got good quality ingredients to choose from and it makes a good burrito. The chips they give with the burritos are flavored and the salsa they make there is good though I haven't tried'em all yet. They got real busy at lunch but the line seemed to move quick and no one was standing around looking for a table. The place is clean and nice.

Sharky's is pretty much THE veg fast food location (besides the ubiquitous Subway). It's actually a pretty good deal too. You can get a veggie burrito there for 4 bucks, and choose from papas, black beans (refrieds are not veggie), rice, grilled onions, bell peps, jalapenos, and a decent selection of fresh veggies, including a pretty good pico and green chiles. You get a generous heaping of chips with a burrito and can choose salsas for both chips and burrito. A typical veggie burrito will be pretty big. Bigger than Chipotle for sure, but not as big as Freebird's (if you've tried them in Dallas or Austin). You can also get nachos or a taco salad for the same price, but make sure you tell them no queso on the nachos or they'll sometimes just just dump it on there!

The food is decent, but tends to be a bit on the bland side honestly. Their salsa is a little bland too but that's coming from a salsa fanatic. I tend to go Red Chile, but I think Roasted is the most popular.

Ambiance is a very mixed bag. It's clean and pretty spacious, and going for sort of a funky-industrial look, but the always-on Fox News and Christian radio usually drives me away. Those of you that are into that will enjoy I guess. Lines can be very long around lunchtime but the wait isn't very bad the rest of the day. You can also call for pickup.

Overall, I definitely recommend the place, but I usually get it to go. We eat there probably 1-2 times per week. They are also I believe locally owned and operated and are planning their first expansion out of town, to Abilene. The co-owner/manager is pretty friendly.
