Mad Mex takeout plan for coronavirus

Yesterday, Mad Mex sent out an email to announce that they were moving to takeout only and would offer $10 growler fills.

With the escalating COVID-19 scare, we have closed all of our restaurants to dine-in guests. We are still offering takeout and delivery from all of our Mad Mex restaurants as well as from Kaya and Alta Via (11am-8pm daily). Additionally, with the closure of PLCB stores, we are offering $10 growler fill ups for anything on tap—$5 extra if you need a new growler. Hopefully these small offerings can help you get through the next few weeks.

What is the Gobblerito? Thanksgiving in a burrito

It’s pretty simple. The Gobblerito is a thanksgiving dinner in a burrito. Yep, turkey with all the fixings — mashed potatoes, stuffing, and corn, served with gravy and cranberry sauce on the side.
