So this week I was supposed to do a review about one of my favorite Chinese buffets for our International week reviews. But since there were so many responses to my last post about burritos, I decided to do a follow up.
Chico’s Fat is an “authentic Cali-Style Taqueria” located at 456 High Street here in Morgantown. They’re open Monday-Saturday from 11a.m. to 11 p.m. and are closed on Sundays. Offering more than just fat burritos, they are one of the most popular places for students and residents to grab a filling Mexican style meal in town. Chico’s Fat also serves, tacos, quesadillas, tortas and more more a moderate price.
I recently spoke with the owner of Chico’s Fat about my blog post and how many people were so passionate about the comparison between his restaurant and Black Bear Burritos. I proposed to him a promotional idea I had for our blog. I asked if he would be willing to give readers of this blog $1 off their meal or a free drink if they mentioned our blog when they paid. My pitch was that people reading the blog who wanted to try Chico’s Fat would be more likely to stop by their place and then come back here to tell us what they thought. He agreed and then told me that he would give %10 percent off for our readers and that I could create a coupon to print off which you can get right here. So thanks to them for doing that!
While many people love Chico’s Fat another popular place which I compared them to was Black Bear Burritos. Black Bear is a much bigger restaurant and offer a wider variety of food and drinks as they also serve alcoholic beverages. This is a real sit down restaurant versus the assembly line style of Chico’s Fat. They do a cool thing where they give you a plastic toy when you pay as sort of a receipt and way for the waitress’ to know who ordered what food. They serve a variety of appetizers, burittos, quesadillas, and a variety of sandwiches, even dessert. It also boasts live music at least 3 times a week for free at 6:30, tonight’s performer is Josh Wanstreet.
I spoke with their owners and told them about our blog as well. I told them about how I wanted to get more comments about the two restaurants but not make it into an actual competition. I told them what Chico’s Fat was doing and asked if they wanted to do something similar but certainly not demanding. The owner politely said he would have to speak with his business partner and would get back to me tomorrow. Hopefully they will be willing our readers something as well.
Like I said, I’m not trying to make this into a promotional competition. But I would like to get some more feedback on which place you feel serves the best burrito in Morgantown. Both offer a lot more but I want to know which one has the best tasting burrito. So if you have been to both places or plan on going out and trying these restaurants, take our poll and let us know what you think.
