A Taste Of Chihuahua’s Restaurant Menu

Made for sharing with 2-3 others, this dish overflowing with spicy goodness is prepared and served in a bowl made of volcanic stone, inspired by the volcano in Mexico shaped just like it!

A burrito made Chihuahua’s style is not just any burrito.

And the guacamole addition is a must!
