Local restaurant ‘Texas Burrito Company’ fuses barbecue & Mexican cuisine

Cinco de Mayo ribbon-cutting ceremony

From the Lone Star State to the Grand Canyon State. A local chef is bringing his family’s traditions to the Old Pueblo, which is a combination of Mexican delights and Texas barbecue that’ll provide a pleasant giddyup to your taste buds.

Texas Burrito Company is hosting a grand opening celebration on Thursday, May 5 at 1570 E. Tucson Marketplace Blvd., Suite 100.

The restaurant opened in early March 2022 but is throwin’ an all-out party that’s meant to be its official launch into the local dining scene. Plus, it’s a perfect way to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. The ribbon-cutting ceremony, which begins at noon, will get things rolling and will then be followed by Mariachi tunes throughout the afternoon.

Recipes dating back to 1836

Texas Burrito Company is a new concept by owner-operator barbecue pitmaster Jason Scott, who’s bringing nearly 10 years of experience to the kitchen. His main vision was to create and deliver “Texican” food to Tucson by throwing in his family recipes.

“I am beyond excited to celebrate the grand opening of Texas Burrito Company in my hometown of Tucson,” said Scott. “Like my mom, my sister and I were born here in Arizona and now I get to bring the Texican recipes from my dad’s side of the family to all my friends and neighbors. I really think they’re going to love it.”
