Many squirrels in Lexington, Kentucky are quite happy. Squirrels are our little friends. Squirrels deserve more adventurous dining options for sure. So this business made them a tiny burrito restaurant.
SquirrelsSquirrelsSquirrels Burritos is the culinary collaboration of GirlsGirlsGirls Burritos, the locally-owned place for exceptional Tex-Mex fare made by people who care, and Cornett, a Lexington ad agency with a knack for fun attention-grabbing work.
The little establishment is a stunning scale replica of the GirlsGirlsgGirls storefront. It boasts a comfortable patio space with mini picnic tables for al fresco dining and a vegan-friendly menu with signature items like The TrashSquirrel Burrito.
Local news was called to cover the story for the opening and a ribbon-cutting ceremony. Then, of course, appreciative squirrels were given to some small squirrel burritos.
