After rolling with the punches during the pandemic, a quirky Meridian restaurant is down for the count after three years.
Sweeto Burrito — a fast-casual, tortilla-based operation — recently closed. The Mexican wrestling-themed eatery was launched in September 2020 at 3110 W. Quintale Drive — next to the Broken Yolk Cafe in a strip mall near the intersection of 10 Mile and McMillan roads.
A small regional chain, Sweeto Burrito uses the motto “flavor worth fighting for.” The 2,200-square-foot Meridian restaurant had offered lots of indoor seating, along with a drive-thru.
Sweeto Burrito is known not only for its unusual branding, but for atypical food combinations.
The All American is a “monster cheeseburger burrito,” according to its menu, also stuffed with french fries. The Buff Chick is crammed with ingredients including boneless chicken, tater tots and Sweeto’s three-cheese blend.
Sweeto Burrito still has three locations: one in Idaho Falls and two in Utah.
