National Burrito Day is observed annually on the first Thursday in April. There are plenty of places around the Beacon which serve this delicious meal to enjoy with friends.  Burritos also pair perfectly with margaritas!

If you have never tried a burrito it’s a heavy tortilla wrapped around meat, cheese, tomato, rice, beans, vegetables, and sauces.  Burritos are traditionally filled with ground beef, shredded chicken, shredded beef or shredded pork.  If you’re vegetarian, skip the meat and do all veggies! Here are some great burrito places which are all just a 10 minute drive from The Beacon.

Orale Mexican Kitchen – Orale is a fun place with great margaritas to pair with your burrito.  If you can’t celebrate National Burrito Day on April 4th, go for brunch on the weekend and order the Burrito Loco which has eggs, chorizo, bacon, cheese, black beans and salsa.
