The Wild Burrito decided to open for business during last week’s huge snowstorm, serving a selection of Mexican foods from the former Buttercream Cupcake location at 2015 E. Moyamensing Ave. Joe Carpenter, a South Philly native, decided to open this shop as an extension of his seasonal business of the same name in Wildwood, N.J. The Wild Burrito’s main focus is on their mission-style burritos, but their menu also includes quesadillas, nachos, avocado fries, ghost pepper brownies and more. For the restaurant to be accessible to all people, there are vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options. Carpenter compared the restaurant to Chipotle, but with more options. You can stop in for a late breakfast, lunch, dinner or weekend brunch. You can eat-in, take out, or get delivery from The Wild Burrito. The restaurant also has their own phone app, simply called “The Wild Burrito,” for iPhone and Android devices. Both the app and Wild Burrito’s website allow you to order for takeout or delivery with ease. Hours are from Monday through Thursday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., Friday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. You can find The Wild Burrito on Facebook.
