El Cucuy Burritos began late August 2021, as a mobile kitchen. The business has been thriving on a creative menu boasting authentCalifornia burritos and menu of ambitious culinary exploration.
Owner Mark Kimberlin has a long resume of culinary development, operational management, and creativity that fuels the concept.
El Cucuy Burritos is a celebration of our Southwestern, Mexican, and Latin culture. Not only the food, but the whole experience. Our menu is a culmination of powerful flavor profiles, and standalone it is sure to wow the critics, but the food is meant to be enjoyed with the colors, the music, and the storytelling. Not many people understand what CUCUY or CHUPACABRA or LLORONA is, much less say the names correctly, and this is great icebreaking for what we offer. Teaching our community about folklore or explaining our music selection or even simply helping our neighbors pronounce their orders gives some added weight to our menu items and can allow you to enjoy the food that much better.
Our mission is to serve the freshest locally grown produce and serve the community through intensity, integrity, and originality. This means daily gathered produce from local farms from trusted suppliers, no frozen meats, no microwaves. If its not fresh, if its not great, we will not serve it! This also means serving our neighbors with compassion, patience, and a unique style and attitiude that will shake up the industry standards.
Our vision is to be the most iconic Mexican-inspired restaurant and mobile kitchen. There is a saturation of Mexican, Tex-Mex, and Southwest restaurants but we have a goal and drive that is relentless and contagious of originality. This is true for our attention to detail, sincerity to our community and guests, and our aggressive drive for El Cucuy’s growth.
