Picante! The Real Taco Goes Gunning for Anita's

Bob W | | Jul 24, 2006 05:59 PM

There is a breakfast burrito brou-ha-ha brewing in Chantilly.

Anita's, at 50 and Walney Rd., sells hundreds of their $0.99 breakfast burritos every day. They are a great deal.

About a mile west, Picante! The Real Taco a month ago opened a little outlet called Picante! Burrito Express, which offers 8 kinds of burritos (two chicken, a beef, a pork, a pork rind, two veggie, and tongue) for $1.95. We tried them last week and they are a very good deal. Two made a perfect lunch. I checked the hours and they opened at 11 on weekdays. So no breakfast burritos.

Yesterday I drove by and saw a sign on the Picante! truck that said "Breakfast Burritos 99 Cents! M-F 7-10" Didn't take them long to wander over to Anita's, try one of their breakfast burritos, and decide that they could do the same thing. I will try some tomorrow and report back.

Maybe a breakfast burrito price war is in the offing?
