Burrito chain hosting event on Wednesday, March 25, beginning at 11 am

CHARLESTON, SC (March 24, 2020) – Barberitos in Charleston is partnering with Tank Jackson from Holy City Hogs to provide one-day-only special tacos at the Barberitos on 1739 Maybank Hwy. Kory Kitchens, Charleston Franchisee of Barberitos, and Jackson were looking to cook up some interesting food options, while supporting each other and others impacted in the food & beverage industry.

Beginning at 11:00 am (and while supplies last) there are two unique offerings:

  • Holy City Hog Chorizo Taco – A single, tasty taco, along with chips and salsa, will be given for FREE to anyone who has been impacted during the recent layoffs in the food & beverage industry. Simply ask upon arrival.
  • Holy City Hog Pulled Pork – For only $7.99, guests can add the savory pulled pork to any entrée, whether it’s two tacos or burritos, salad or nachos. This combo of Holy City Hog pork and Barberitos fixings will be accompanied with chips and salsa.

Ordering options available to Barberitos guests include:

  • Mobile App – The app offers a location finder, online ordering and the ability to request curbside delivery (this option is not available for special Holy City Hog items).
  • Curbside Delivery – Team member will bring to-go orders to the car. Guests can also select curbside service online via Barberitos.com.
  • Delivery Services – Call the local restaurant to learn which delivery services that specific franchise location is offering.

“The Barberitos team in Charleston is committed to serving our community,” said Kitchens. “We are in this together and are making every effort to stay open during these uncertain times so our loyal team members have a paycheck now and, hopefully, in the future.”

Holy City Hogs is a family-run operation based in Wadmalaw Island. Jackson raises pigs who live their entire lives outside. The flavors of the Earth, roots, grasses, seasonal produce, grains and acorn mast give its pork products an undeniable advantage in taste and quality that is not experienced from a hog raised on concrete indoors. Holy City Hogs is part of a farming cooperative comprised of many farms throughout the Southeast.

Barberitos is a Southwestern Grille dedicated to serving farm-fresh, high-quality food in a fast-casual restaurant environment. In addition to the pulled pork, many of the restaurant’s menu items are prepared or cooked in-house daily, including hand-smashed guacamole, homemade salsas, fresh-cut vegetables as well as chicken, steak, turkey, tofu, rice and beans.
