It’s baack! Tuesday, April 19 is Gobblerito Day at Mad Mex

1 day only! Celebrate spring with a Thanksgiving dinner-in-a-burrito

Celebrate spring with a Thanksgiving dinner-in-a-burrito. Tuesday, April 19 2022 is Gobblerito Day.  (I think there are a few other things that are also celebrated on April 20.)

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 1 day only spring appearance.

Goblerito Day is April 19

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. From the Mad Mex website:

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 stuffing and buttery corn, all wrapped in a tortilla and drenched in gravy. Cranberry sauce is on the side.

Gobblerito Day tip: Beat the crowd, do lunch

Gobblerito Day

The Goblertio is available for dine-in or takeout

You can order takeout for pickup through the Mad Mex website. You can also order margaritas and beers for pickup. In the past, Mad Mex has offered an apple cider margarita for Gobblerito Day, but it looks like they are just offering the classic margarita flavors this year.

If you want to have Mad Mex delivered, you can use Doordash.
