All you have to do is pick your burrito type (tortilla wrap or bowl) and followed by protein (e.g. grilled chicken, beef steak, braised lamb). Next up is choose your base (rice/beans), toppings (e.g. corn, fajitas, tomato salsa), dressing (e.g. hot sauce, jalapeno sauce, sour cream) and extras (e.g. cheese, nachos). And just so you know, the name of their burrito bar literally means “mix it up”. That explains their signature menu item in the first place.
