When is National Burrito Day?
National Burrito Day is on the first Thursday of April, and in 2023, it’ll be on Thursday, April 6, 2023. Burritos were first introduced in the Dictionary of Mexicanisms in 1895 and directly translates to “little donkey.” It’s said that it was named after the bundles that appear on donkeys bedrolls.
When you visited California Tortilla on National Burrito Day 2022 and ordered any burrito or burrito bowl, you could get a scratch-off ticket that could get you freebies like free chips and queso ($3.29) or a side salad ($3.69).
Every scratch-off ticket had a freebie, plus five lucky customers received the “Golden Burrito,” which gave its owner free burritos for a year. You could only get these coupons on April 7, 2022, and they were valid starting the next day.
Chipotle celebrated National Burrito Day in two big ways. First, when you ordered via the Chipotle app or website, you got a free side of queso (regularly $2.94) with promo code NBD2022.
And if you played Roblox, Chipotle launched the Chipotle Burrito Builder game on Roblox. Like the Chipotle Boo-rito Maze from Halloween 2021, the first 100,000 Roblox players could play a game to get a free burrito coupon code from Chipotle.
The Chipotle Burrito Builder game was live on National Burrito Day, April 7, 2022.
