The menu: The Tomatillos motto is "in beans we trust," and the bulging $5 base burrito is built from a combo of pinto and/or black beans, rice, jack cheese and salsa fresca rolled in a steamed flour, whole-wheat or spinach tortilla. Potato and green chile, tofu, chicken, pulled pork, steak or shrimp versions run $6-$9. And there's a long list of add-ons, including spinach, sweet potatoes, avocado and roasted corn.
The drinks: While the sign out front advertises burritos and beer, the liquor license is still a couple of weeks away. When it arrives, look for a variety of classic and craft beers, along with wine and a few specialty cocktails. In the meantime, offerings include Mexican sodas, juice drinks, iced tea and coffee.
The extras: The Monday-Friday $8 lunch special includes a burrito, fountain drink and chips. Weekend brunch features the likes of huevos rancheros with black beans ($5) and a breakfast burrito with scrambled eggs and cheese ($5).
