Serving Utah for Over 40 Years!
Our first restaurant was established in 1976 when Manuel Gallegos Sr. and brother-in-law George Garcia had a great idea. Since there were no Mexican restaurants with real Mexican home cooking in the area (and we still remain the only one) they would start one. The name “El Burrito” came from the two of them sitting at the kitchen table. To them “El Burrito” sounded better than “El Taco”.
We are proud to say that we take our recipes from our own family kitchen and share them with everyone, and also give you the same hospitality as if you were a guest in our home. We sure hope you’ll enjoy our food and service. We guarantee that you will receive the highest quality food, fairest prices, friendliest service, and most pleasant atmosphere this side of Mexico.
For the month of December, El Burrito is teaming up with Open Doors, a non-profit organization designed to assist local families in providing long-term solutions to poverty and self-reliance. “This year has been difficult not only for small businesses but for families as well. We hope to relieve some of that pressure by providing families with a meal,” says Gallegos.
There are two ways El Burrito is helping with the giving spirit. Customers can purchase ornaments on a Christmas Tree inside the restaurant to purchase a meal for a family. The restaurant also will provide free burritos Monday through Wednesday from 3 – 5:30 p.m. Families in need may call the restaurant between 2-4 p.m. to place an order (maximum of eight per family).
