Following their passion, Ben Parades Rojas and David Heurtra De Jesus opened Fat Burrito in August2012, delighting customers who enjoy Mexican food at an affordable price. The owners care about their customers and the ingredients that go into their dishes. Therefore, they procure only the freshest ingredients for their made-from-scratch fare. Plus, if you can’t find what you want on the menu, they will improvise for you (if they have the ingredients on hand). For something meat-free, try the ‘Fat Stuffed Pepper Burrito’ or the garden quesadilla. Meat eaters will enjoy the steak a la Mexicana, which is a skirt steak with a tangy and spicy topping of onions, jalapeño peppers and tomatoes. Fat Burrito is open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
