It’s been a long road for Uberrito. Originally Mission Burrito until a trademark infringement lawsuit forced the Houston-based chain to change its name, Uberrito has undergone a rebranding that will revamp the burrito spot that’s been around the city, in one form or another, for the past twenty years.
On May 5, Uberrito will open its fourth location at 7705 Westheimer Road on May 5. Diners can score $5 burritos during lunch, and BOGO burritos from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. If you happen to be an Uberrito loyalty card holder, your burrito at any Houston location will earn you double points.
"We are excited to bring our expanded menu and newest interior design to the Houston community. Our name translates to above and beyond your basic burrito, and we feel that's exactly what we are offering our customers with our new dining experience," said Uberrito CEO Marcus Jundt in a statement. “Our modern, vibrant atmosphere offers our customers an enjoyable space for lunch or dinner."
Uberrito hinted at an H-Town expansion last year, when the chain’s original Mission Burrito location in Upper Kirby quietly shuttered. At issue wasn’t Uberrito’s massive burritos, but a dispute with the landlord at the West Alabama location.
If you’re feeling lucky, head to the new Uberrito on May 5 and play the roll-to-win game. You could take home a year’s supply of burritos.
