Seven-Pound Burritos Exiting the Northwest

Jack-n-Grill departs once the Federal Building sells

Jack-n-Grill

Say so long to ridiculously large burritos bathed in red or green chili and monster-sized burgers. Jack-n-Grill, home to the seven-pound burrito, plans to close in the Federal Building once the building at 2524 Federal Blvd. sells. Westword reports that the restaurant will shutter when the sale finalizes.

Owner Jack Martinez tells the Denver Post: “Jack-n-Grill is not going away; it’s just that the property on Federal is going away…I’m planning on having about five or six in the metro area, so Jack is back.”

Adam Richman from the Food Network’s Man vs. Food made the restaurant famous back in 2009 when he attempted to eat on the of seven pound burritos.

Martinez opened his restaurant that specializes in New Mexican fare in 2000 after selling his elote and other classic Southwestern fare in a parking lot.

Martinez has a second location at 9310 Sheridan Boulevard in Westminster, and the Denver Post reports that three new locations may be on the horizon in Parker, Broomfield and Littleton.
