Barberitos high standards are something to be excited about, Columbus, GA area, and here is why:
1. The slogan, “Bigger Than a Burrito” is what the franchise likes to call its “community involvement and spontaneous random acts of kindness. This initiative is meant to show that the Barberitos culture is more than just about making burritos, but it is also about giving back.” Each Barberitos location finds ways to help in their community.
2. Their food is made-to-order right in front of you, exactly the way you tell them to make it, with quick service but not fast food quality.
3. Their vegetables and herbs are bought locally! Barberitos is a huge supporter of locals and do not bus in frozen ingredients from all over the nation.
4. All their ingredients are made fresh every single day.

5. Barberitos beef and chicken are naturally raised with NO added preservatives, chemicals or hormones. Yes! After so many studies on how horrible meat can be and how it can directly cause cancer if not raised/fed properly, among an array of other problems, this quality is paramount. Their caliber is standing up for our community’s health! Furthermore, they only serve grass fed beef, which is significantly lower in fat than grain fed beef, making it as lean as chicken.

6. Barberitos doesn’t use any added fats or preservatives in the preparation of their foods. We can all be thankful for no sneaky fat grams. Even though the “made from scratch” type of preparation requires more effort, they won’t compromise their philosophy.
7. Barberitos has provided a list of “7 under 7”, which is 7 different menu options, each with 7 grams of fat or less!
