The Asheville, North Carolina, Barberitos will be hosting a "Fiesta Night" on Tuesday, January 22, from 5:30-8 p.m. It has teamed up with the Asheville Humane Society to raise money for homeless animals. 

Hor d'oeuvres and bottled beer will be available at the event, in addition to the full Barberitos menu. Each guest will pay $10 to participate, and proceeds go to the Asheville Humane Society.

In addition, 15 percent of Barberitos' dinner sales will be donated to benefit the animals.

Barberitos is a quick-service restaurant offering fresh, Tex-Mex cuisine, including a variety of burritos, tacos, salads, quesadillas, and nachos made to order.

Committed to serving farm-fresh food, Barberitos serves all-natural vegetables delivered to stores and hand-cut daily. Whole breasts of chicken are grilled fresh, as are the high-quality cuts of steak and Choice ground beef.

Barberitos restaurants are not equipped with freezers or microwaves, as all food is prepared fresh with no fats or preservatives added at the time of preparation.

Barberitos' salsas, guacamoles, hot sauces, meat marinades, and salad dressings are made from scratch each day. Each menu offering is prepared at the time it is ordered right in front of the customer.

Barberitos' "7 Under 7" menu features seven items each under 7 grams of fat, including a mini grilled chicken burrito, jerk fish taco, and a variety of salads. The brand provides full-service catering, ranging from burrito boxed lunches to taco, nacho, salad, or fajita bars that can be customized to serve a few to several hundred people.
