When the temperature drops, the last thing we want to do is leave the house to grab food. And that’s without even taking the pandemic into consideration. We simply hate being cold.
Luckily, we’re in the Golden Age of food delivery—and virtual kitchens.
The newest one in town, Savage Burrito, comes from the people behind Uncle Julio’s, using the restaurants’ kitchens to crank out massive, bigger-than-your-head burritos, as well as bowls and salads with a variety of pre-determined ingredient combinations. There’s also create-your-own option for those of you who enjoy showing off your flavor-matching skills.
We were among the first people to try Savage Burrito when they delivered a care package of options to try last Friday. Even though we’re located pretty far from an actual Uncle Julio’s, the food arrived hot and fresh.
And we’re still blown away by the portion sizes. (Pro tip: Consider eliminating the rice if you want a more manageable burrito.)
For our delivery order, we tried the Fried Chicken Picnic as a burrito, the Savage Chicken Ranch as a salad and The OG with steak as a bowl. We also had massive amounts of chips with salsa, guacamole and queso for dipping. (The guac is incredible—chunky and fresh—and a real bargain for the price.)
To make a full meal beyond appetizers and main courses, you can add on fun frozen margarita pops (traditional, hibiscus and mango), Mexican beer and non-alcoholic options, as well as mini churros with luscious chocolate dipping sauce.
With prices starting at only $7.50 for burritos, bowls and salads and $4 for chips with guacamole or queso, the price point is very budget-friendly compared to so many delivery options these days.
Pick your nearest location when you order, then select your favorite delivery provider (Uber Eats, DoorDash, Postmates or Grubhub). They’ll even automatically give you $5 off your first order of $15 or more.
So wrap yourself in a blanket and pretend you’re a burrito. Then wait until the doorbell rings and the real thing shows up.
