Barberitos Unveils Smaller Portion Mini Burrito Option

The United States is known for its extra-large portion sizes when it comes to food. As more of the general public becomes aware of this phenomenon and as obesity becomes a larger problem in America, having multiple portion sizes is a notable trend in recent years.

Barberitos signature menu item, the burrito, is of course, made to order, and depending on what type of toppings one likes, can become a hefty burrito that can feed even the largest appetite. However, for those who cannot eat a whole burrito or for those who are watching their weight, Barbs has the solution: the mini. Barberitos mini burrito is made with a 10” tortilla (versus the regular 12”) and has smaller portions of protein and toppings. This is the perfect solution for those watching their waistlines. If going low-carb, one can also get the mini burrito in bowl-version. Barberitos strives to have as many options as possible to please all burrito lovers, especially those focused on portion-control.
 
Barberitos is a quick service restaurant offering 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.
 
Whole breasts of chicken are grilled fresh, as is 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, guacamole, 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 seven grams of fat including a mini grilled chicken burrito, jerk fish taco, and a variety of salads.
 
Barberitos provides full-service catering ranging from burrito boxed lunches to taco, salad, nacho, or fajita bar that can be customized to serve a few to several hundred people.
 
Barberitos has 43 signed restaurant locations, 32 of which are open for business in Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina and Tennessee, and Florida.
