"We are thrilled to open our second location in Phoenix, continuing our expansion efforts in the Southwest," said Marcus Jundt, CEO of Überrito. "Our first Phoenix location has been a big hit with customers, and we know the Arcadia area will enjoy our signature fresh-Mex food, unexpected taste combinations and vibrant atmosphere. We look forward to serving our new customers for many years to come."
Überrito encourages customers to "try something nü", offering nearly unlimited combinations with eight different proteins, 28 ingredients, eight house-made salsas and four flavors of fresh tortillas. Customers wishing to go tortilla free may opt for a bowl, salad or nachos layered in queso. The menu also includes "10 Tasty Tacos" and house-made tortilla soup.
The Überrito concept launched December 2014, building on the success of the former Mission Burrito founded in 1996 in Houston. The fast-casual concept goes above and beyond the basic burrito, offering customers flavor, variety and a unique dining experience. Menu items include unlimited combinations with eight different proteins, 28 ingredients, eight house-made salsas, and four flavors of fresh tortillas. Bowls, salads, house-made tortilla soup and "10 Tasty Tacos" are customer favorites. Visit Überrito online at http://uberrito.com and on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.
