Intriguing History of the Burrito 
We enjoy searching out the origin stories of some of the foods we proudly serve. The history of the burrito is a bit hazy, but we've pulled together some information about this tasty treat that we believe you will find very interesting. You can impress your fellow diners with this knowledge the next time you eat together at Mexicali Blues!

An old piece of folk history claims that Juan Mendez used a donkey to transport himself and the tacos that he sold at a street stand in the Bella Vista neighborhood of Ciudad Juarez during the Mexican Revolution. He would keep the food warm by wrapping it in large homemade flour tortillas placed under a small tablecloth. People began looking forward to his "food of the burrito" (or "food of the donkey," since burrito means little donkey in Spanish) and after a while, they simply started referring to his food as burritos for short.

Going all the way back to 10,000 B.C., Mesoamerican peoples in Mexico wrapped foods in corn tortillas with fillings like chili peppers, tomatoes, mushrooms, squash, and avocados. Pueblo peoples in the Southwestern U.S. were also known to fill tortillas with beans and meat sauce a long time ago. These resemble the delicious burrito that we know and love today, but their versions are considered to be more like our modern-day taco instead.

Now that you have seven burritos to choose from and all the knowledge you need about this wonderful food to impress your friends with, it's time to eat! Head on over to our Mexican restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks and give one of these hearty meals a try. Pair it with our fresh chips, homemade salsa, and a margarita, and your trip to Mexicali Blues in Osage Beach will be an extremely satisfying visit!
