Barberitos Brings Back Pulled Pork

Fan Favorite Returns to the Menu 7 Days a Week

Athens, Ga. (January 15, 2018) – Barberitos, a fast-casual restaurant chain serving farm fresh burritos, tacos and other Southwestern favorites, has expanded its menu to include slow-cooked pulled pork as a protein option on any entrée through March.

Pork is as popular as it has ever been—it’s even predicted to surpass beef by the end of the year—and giving customers the option to add it to their entrée reflects that growing demand. Barberitos’ recipe, which involves rubbing the pork with a secret combination of seven spices before cooking it for hours at a low temperature, ensures the meat is both tender and flavorful.

“Pulled pork is a staple of Southwestern cuisine,” Founder and CEO Downing Barber said. “Our pulled pork is packed with Barberitos flavor, and we’re pleased to offer it to our guests as a new, hearty protein option.”
