You are invited to Follow Me on Friday as I visit El Famous Burrito. The fun takes place this Friday, November 4th, 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., at 7047 N. Clark (between Estes and Greenleaf). Owner Vince Ortiz will supply the appetizers and I’ll provide the margaritas, beer, wine and soft drinks.
El Famous Burrito is well-known for its abundant burritos and fresh Mexican food. It has over 15 locations in Chicago and its suburbs, but the original El Famous is right here in the 49th Ward. Vince opened the Rogers Park location nearly 20 years ago. El Famous claims to serve burritos the size of footballs. That may be a bit of an exaggeration, but they are huge and incredibly delicious.
Join us after work for some fun, relaxation and delicious Mexican appetizers at a Rogers Park original!
“Follow Me on Friday” is one of my efforts to encourage my constituents to sample some of the 49th Ward’s finest restaurants, pubs and businesses. Each week on my Facebook page, I post the name and location of a local restaurant, pub or business where I’ll be hanging out after work on Friday. The establishment offers specials for all my Facebook followers and their friends. It’s a great opportunity for you to check out one of the fine local 49th Ward businesses you may not have visited before.
