At Ohio City Burrito we strive to roll each burrito perfectly and uniformly using our trademark rolling technique. If done right, each burrito should be tightly rolled and compact enough to eat on the go. No loose, sloppy rolls here. Your burrito will maintain its structural integrity ‘til the very end, not fall apart on you halfway through. You can even wrap it up in a paper bag, stuff it in your backpack, and eat the intact burrito later. We take pride in our ‘rolling’ and even have a running competition amongst staff over who is the ‘King’ of rolling the best Silver Bullet.
Our burritos are also intentionally built so that you get a bit of every ingredient in each bite...we achieve this by using a technique, suprisingly uncommon in the industry, known as “layering”. This ensures that you don’t consume just a pocket of guacamole or a mountain of meat with each bite...you get all of the yummy flavors with each and every mouthful!
A Silver Bullet is, by definition, a perfectly rolled burrito. Both in tightness of the roll and shape and size of the burrito. Come see why OCB is home of the Silver Bullet!
No Fork Necessary!
The beauty of the Silver Bullet is that it is meant to be eaten without utensils, so that you can easily eat it on the run. The proper way to eat one of our finely crafted burritos is to start by tearing off the top portion of aluminum foil. Support your delicious food bundle with one or both hands and dig in, gradually tearing down more foil until you reach that coveted last bite! Be careful not to get ahead of yourself and remove all of the foil at once...it is crucial to keep the foil at the bottom intact to support the uneaten portion throughout your meal.
The mission burrito is a style of burrito originating from the “Mission District” in San Francisco around the 1960’s (though its true origin story is hotly contested). The mission burrito is distinguished from its similarly tasty cousins mainly by size, choice of ingredients and affordability. It is known to be a quite large, efficient and affordable meal, able to sustain a hungry worker’s appetite all day long. Since its inception, the mission burrito has inspired fierce debate over who crafts the very best of this Mexican-American staple. Many of our loyal followers have noted that we serve up the “Best Burritos in Cleveland”...what do you say?
Día de Muertos is a beautiful tradition in which people honor and remember their loved ones who have passed, through many lively festivities. The origins of Día de Muertos can be traced back to indigenous cultures hundreds of years ago, before evolving into the modern holiday it is today. Celebrated mainly in México, different versions of the holiday can be found throughout Latin America.
Co-owner of Ohio City Burrito, Michelle Pizzuli, fell in love with the many diverse cultures of Latin America while majoring in Spanish at the University of Montana. She was especially drawn to Día de Muertos, as she found it a much more luminous way to honor our loved ones who have passed. Although the style and art associated with this holiday has become very popular in the U.S. in recent years, for us it is so much more. We must be careful not to reduce this long-standing cultural tradition to a trendy theme or cool décor. It is much more than just sugar skulls & skeletons (though we love those, too!).
We wanted to share a bit more about this tradition that has inspired us. And hope you come and celebrate at the annual Día de Muertos festivities in Gordon Square every November (or late October).
