Though now a foodie favorite, burritos, meaning little donkeys in Spanish, were once barely recognized for their hard work carrying heavy beans from plates to mouths. Appreciate the efforts of your eats with today's Groupon: for $3, you get $6 worth of burritos and more at Diego's Burritos, on West Avenue N.
A local staple for 25 years, Diego's Burritos swaddles its simple Mexican menu in a blanket of tender and warm tortillas. While the eatery's burritos ($2 for a regular, additional ingredients are extra) are the biggest sellers, Diego's also serves up a spread of other south-of-the-border eats, including tortas ($3) and tamales ($7.50 for a dozen). In the morning, open wide as a breakfast burrito sends a team of potatoes, sausage, bacon, ham, or chorizo into your mouth to explore each tooth and fertilize tongue buds with eggs (each ingredient is $.25). The guiso burrito, stuffed with beans and cheese, is the favorite fare of repeat feasters, though health-conscious patrons can opt for Diego's wheat-tortilla burrito with turkey bacon and eggs cooked in olive oil ($3.25). Diego's diners are free to feast in the restaurant or take their burritos to-go to fuel backgammon night.
