And, apparently, amassing gym equipment, too. That's right: Burrito Giant also has a gym crammed with work-out machines, which, somewhat ironically, occupies a full room right around the corner from the joint's trio of tables, the same tables from which you sit and stuff yourself. With big-ass burritos.
And those tables? They're surrounded by an empty bottle of Jack filled with pennies, lots of pottery and mosaic tiles and a desk with a few chairs that doubles as Moreno's office. Weird, huh?
The gym belongs to Mike, Moreno's uncle, who builds and sells equipment, while other family members -- grandmas, great-grandmothers, nieces, nephews, cousins and cousins far removed -- make the place run smoothly. "We all take a lot of pride in what we do, and we know that we can sink or swim together, so we're doing everything we can to swim," says Moreno.
She's also trying to keep the neighbors happy by offering a two-for-one burrito happy hour from 2 to 6:30 p.m., Monday through Friday and 2 to 5 p.m. on Saturday.
