A good burrito, like an effective office cubicle, should hold a variety of perishable foodstuffs and be large enough to encourage eight-hour siestas. Enjoy nap-inducing eats with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of California-style Mexican fare and drinks at The Burrito Company in Woonsocket.
Granted one of Rhode Island Monthly’s Best of Rhode Island Readers' Pick awards in 2009, The Burrito Company crafts a menu full of fresh California-style Mexican eats. Guests can simmer excitable taste buds with an order of salsa- and cheese-slathered tortillas ($4.95) before tucking into freshly prepared beef burritos ($7.95/lunch, $10.95/dinner), chicken enchiladas ($9.95/lunch, $12.95/dinner), or bean quesadillas ($7.95/lunch, $9.95/dinner). Evening diners earn rare sightings of nocturnal dinner-only fajitas and combination entrées, such as the sizzling steak fajita with spanish onions, bell peppers, and guacamole ($12.95), or the enchilada-and-taco combo ($12.95). All lunch and dinner plates, tailor-able to four different heat intensities, befriend hefty masses of spanish rice and refried beans en-route to the table. The eatery also stocks a plethora of flavor-infused tequilas, used in crafting specialty margaritas and strawberry-scented conversations, which guests may enjoy inside or on the cozy, sunlit outdoor patio.
The Burrito Company
For Anthony and Denise Sierra, California-style burritos aren't just a fast and healthy meal. They're a tribute to Mark Tryhubczak, the chef and friend who brought them together. After teaching Anthony and Denise to cook, Mark introduced the couple at his own burrito shop, Block Island Burrito Company. Together, the trio turned the fledgling business into a local gem in the early 1990s. Though Mark has sadly passed away, his legacy lives on through Anthony and Denise's joyful eatery, which helps patrons to build their own memories around plates of nachos and steaming bowls of chili. Anthony handcrafts the entire lineup of edibles each day, making every bite more refreshing than a mentholated dunk tank. Flour tortillas encase seven types of burritos, which team with seasoned meats and colorful veggies such as bell peppers, sweet corn, and ripe red tomatoes. Instead of gift-wrapping microwaves and trimming sun rays with frosting, guests can celebrate heat waves on the patio while sipping festive margaritas and three types of sangria.
