Celebrate spring with a Thanksgiving dinner-in-a-burrito and an apple cider margarita.

Forget the groundhog up in Punxsutawney. The new sign of spring is the annual spring landing of the Gobblertio at Max Mex. For the past few years, Mad Mex has been bringing back this Thanksgiving favorite for a spring appearance.

Yes, Pittsburgh, for one day only, you can celebrate Thanksgiving in April. The Gobblerito is the much-loved Thanksgiving dinner-in-a-burrito that MadMex offers each fall. But according to the Mad Mex website, Tuesday, April 23, 2019, is Gobblerito Day.

Can’t wait for fall for the Gobblerito to return? Once per spring we bring back our burrit-o-plenty for a single magical Tuesday in April.

The Gobblerito is a complete Thanksgiving bundle of juicy, house-roasted turkey, creamy black bean mashed potatoes, rich bread stuffing and buttery corn, all wrapped in a tortilla and drenched in gravy. Jellied cranberry sauce is on the side.

We’re also bringing back Apple Cider margaritas (complete with caramel rim) for one day as well.
