Happy 2019, amigos!

Happy 2019 from Jack Burrito

Dear amigos,

We’d like to thank you all for your support throughout 2018. 

The last four months in particular have been the most successful since our opening in October 2017. 

We really enjoyed seeing new faces as well as many returning customers. 

A big GRACIAS to the bustling Chester community. We enjoy being part of it every day as an independent restaurant! 

And a special shout out to the local #vegan community, that has been so supportive of our large plant-based menu.

Thank you to Francis Thomas Fruit & Vegetable, North West Produce, David Joinson Quality Meat, Crumbs and Zealots Coffee, our impeccable local suppliers.

Finally, big thanks to each member of our team: we couldn’t have done it without your help.

Happy 2019, everyone! We hope to see you all soon

Jack Burrito's new WINTER MENU

Jack Burrito - Winter Menu - Mole poblano

Mexican and south american food in chester

‘It’s the most wonderful time of the year,’ they say, and it is indeed: Chester is covered in fairy lights, the colourful stalls of the Christmas market are popping up in town and Jack Burrito has a brand new winter menu!

We are very excited to introduce it to you. Our executive chef Bethany Donkin has invested a lot of time in researching traditional Mexican recipes and creating a wide array of South American inspired dishes that are perfect to enjoy when it’s chilli outside (pun intended).

jack burrito’s winter menu: meaty and vegan dishes

Jack Burrito’s new menu is a combination of all-time favourites, a few Autumn Specials that proved too popular to be left out, and many new exotic flavours. As always, almost every item has a vegan alternative, meaning that the vegan menu offers around thirty plant-based dishes, from starters to mains to desserts.

Here are just a few highlights.

Our ‘antojitos’—Mexican street food that can be enjoyed as a starter, with your main or on its own—now include elotes (Mexican corn on the cob with cheese and mayo) and garnachas (fried corn tortilla with meaty or vegan toppings and salsas).

Among Jack Burrito’s new mains you will find quesadillas (cheesy half-moon toasted tortillas) and mole poblano (chicken or mushroom topped with traditional mole sauce, national dish of Mexico).

Also, hot dogs are finally back: El Salvador is inspired by the homonymous country, where this tasty street food is topped with pickled cabbage and mustard.

Due to popular demand, we are keeping our Feijoada (Brazilian black bean and sausage stew) and molletes (Mexican baguettes) from the Autumn Specials menu.

Would you rather feel Christmassy?

Then we are sure you’ll love our Yorkos, Jack’s very own Yorkshire pudding based tacos with roasted veggies and a pot of gravy, and our Winter Special Burrito, which includes spicy cranberry chipotle.

Mouth-watering desserts

There are many new additions to the dessert menu, too, with a special mention going to the mouth-watering Ginger bread buñuelos: fried dough balls served with hot chocolate fudge sauce or winter fruit compote.

Oh, and don’t worry: our popular churros are staying!


Jack Burrito's one year anniversary

Jack Burrito - one year anniversary

It’s Jack Burrito’s one year anniversary, today!

A whole year has passed since the start of our mission: bring a delicious taste of South America to the walled city of Chester.

‘The opening of any restaurant presents its own unique challenges,’ said manager and executive chef Bethany Donkin. ‘Here at Jack Burrito we love to listen to what our customers have to say and adapt what we offer accordingly.

That brought about our extensive Vegan menu as the demand for high quality, tasty vegan food was something that we felt Chester lacked. It’s been a fun and fulfilling journey developing our plant based menu, it came with its own set of challenges, but we persevered and we are so proud of what we have accomplished here.

I couldn’t have done it without the support of my impeccable team and we hope to see you soon and for you to enjoy Jack Burrito as much as we do.’ 

Many burritos and unlimited tacos later, we are glad to be celebrating this exciting event with our favourite amigos. Today is a special day for multiple reasons: not only it’s Jack’s birthday, but it’s also Día de Muertos, the lively Mexican holiday dedicated to honouring the dead.

We were thinking of a good way to celebrate our anniversary and reward our loyal amigos: how does FREE SANGRIA sound?

Come and dine with us to grab your free glass, and don’t forget to wish Happy Birthday to Jack.

For he’s a jolly Burrito,
for he’s a jolly Burritoooo!
