Cantina Rooftop has been selling a taco weighing over 10lbs (Big Ass Taco) for some time now, but April 1st will mark the debut of Chef Saul Montiel’s Big Ass Burrito (BAB).

The monster of a meal includes your choice of hanger steak or chicken, chipotle puree, Mexican rice, black beans, chihuahua cheese, lettuce, avocado, queso fresco, pico de gallo, salsa ranchera, Morita and avocado sauces, and sour cream all snug inside an enormous homemade tortilla.

Chef Saul Montiel began his culinary journey in Atotonilco el Grande, outside of Pachuca in central Mexico learning from his grandmother and mother. At fifteen he moved the U.S. and swiftly advanced his way through the restaurant industry. He joined Cantina Rooftop in 2018 and has been bringing his expertise and brilliant talent to the restaurant ever since.

The BAB will feed anywhere from 6-8 people. Priced at $80, it’s the perfect dish to share.
