The Barberitos in Winder, Georgia, is hosting a percentage day on Thursday, November 29, to benefit Tripp Halstead. The local toddler has been recovering from a head injury since Hurricane Sandy sent a large tree limb tumbling down on the 2-year-old in early November.

The tragic story has touched many local residents, who have been more than willing to reach out and help in any way possible. Barberitos will be donating 10 percent of the entire day’s sales to the Halstead family.

“I’m looking forward to hosting this charitable event and collecting money to help out the Halstead family,” says owner Susan Mattox. “I hope the percentage day will have a good turnout in support of this great, local cause. We’re cheering for him.”

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, 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 7 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 bars that can be customized to serve a few to several hundred people.  

Barberitos has 30 restaurant franchise locations in Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Tennessee, and Florida.
