Burgrito's

Where are you eating and what do you think? What's opening, closing, succeeding, failing?

Burgrito's

Postby Beard » Mon Feb 26, 2018 8:40 am

Coming to Monroe St.

Burger/burrito hybrid. This seems more like the type of place that would maybe last a year or two on State St. than a place that the Monroe St. crowd will appreciate.

Sounds like a step down from Double S BBQ.

Seems like this kind of post-bong hit nastiness would do better closer to campus.

A few years ago I tried a Burger King Whopperito out of morbid curiosity. At under $5 the ingredients were likely a class below what Burgrito's will be selling but the execution was the same - burger ingredients wrapped in a tortilla. It was enough exposure to the idea that I'm confident in saying that it just does not work.

Similar idea, this place gets a lot of press:

^^ That reminds me a bit of the short lived Fat Sandwich Company that was in the corner spot of what is now The Hub.

Here's what their menu looked like. And yes, one of the sandwiches was named "Fat Sorostitute" :|

Closing shop after half a year.

Darin Laby, who owns the business with his brother, Lawrence Laby, said there were a few reasons the Madison location didn't work out.

The main reason was that the restaurant, 1835 Monroe St., didn't catch on.

"I would say lack of sales," he said, laughing. The nine-month reconstruction of Monroe Street that started a few days before the restaurant opened, didn't help either, he said.

I like his honesty.
