Big Mamma's Burritos is now open in Gordon Square Fridays and Saturdays from 11:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.
Our preview post from August below:
Big Mamma's Burritos, a favorite of the Ohio University and Ohio State University student bodies, opened a Cleveland outpost in December in partnership with Whistle & Keg (818 Prospect Ave.). That bar currently is closed for renovations owing to damage sustained during the protests.
Today we learn that Big Mamma's will open a standalone shop in Gordon Square, in the former home of Daily Press (6604 Detroit Ave.). President Jerry DePizzo says the plan is to open the doors in a couple months.
"We love the location, we love the kinetic energy down there," says DePizzo. "Being down in Columbus, it actually reminds me a lot of our Short North District with the art and the culture that exist there. I think we're a great fit for the neighborhood and I think the neighborhood is a great fit for us."
Founded in 2005, the small chain offers a roster of Mexi-Cali options on a variety of bases — burrito, bowl, salad, chips — as well as build-your-own burritos.
