Chipotle may have kicked off the National Burrito Day celebration early, but numerous other restaurants are offering deals on Thursday, April 4th.

This concocted holiday falls on the first Thursday of April and typically entails burrito enthusiasts being able to enjoy specials and promotions at various Mexican food chains.

Why is a Burrito called a Burrito?

The term burrito, which translates to "little donkey," likely originated from the blending of Mexican and European cuisines following the Spanish conquest in the 16th century. Jeffrey Pilcher, a professor of food history at the University of Toronto, delves into this in his book "Planet Taco: A Global History of Mexican Food."

Street vendors selling burritos from baskets carried by burros (donkeys), along with the cylindrical shape resembling a burro's bedroll, likely contributed to the name "burrito."

Regardless of their origins, burritos are delicious. We've compiled numerous deals on meals wrapped in tortillas.
