The Birth of burgerittoville
It was a dark and stormy night in the year 2000. I had just arrived at my Fairfield bar, Skybox Café. I stomped the snow off my boots and hungrily headed for the grill.
Famished, as usual, I threw a burger on the grill and topped it with my finest American cheese. But, as I was anticipating that delicious first bite, disaster struck. I had no hamburger buns!
Frantic for my hamburger, the delicious aroma tantalizing me, I looked around for a solution and spotted the flour tortillas. Necessity being the mother of invention, I grabbed a tortilla and placed my burger with melted cheese atop. Thinking it might be bland, I added some accoutrements, namely diced tomato, romaine lettuce, crumbled bacon, and tomato-mayo.
“Wow!!” were the first words I spoke after the initial bite, as the heavens opened up and a bright light shone upon me. “I’m on to something big.” As I’ve been told many times that I’m a legend in my own mind, I knew instantly that I had stumbled upon the next hot, must-have food item. But, being a modest guy, I thought I should check with my customers to be absolutely sure.
After 30-40 people tried one, to a person, they all agreed my new taste sensation was awesome. Over the next few weeks customers kept coming in and asking for “that burger thing” – others described it as “the burger tortilla” and some called it “the burger burrito.” No one knew what to call it but they all knew they wanted it. So I knew it was time to name my new creation and I called it the Burgeritto.
The name may sound strange at first, but trust me, once you try one, you’ll find yourself saying over and over again, “I’ll have a burgeritto”
