Free burritos for life are a golden ticket away.
Eat your way through the burrito selection at either Lucharitos in Greenport or Little Lucharitos in Aquebogue from now through June 1 for a chance to find a golden ticket. Three lucky winners will receive a burrito a week for life.
The giveaway was conceived while owner Marc LaMaina was watching Charlie and The Chocolate Factory on a rainy day with his family.
“My boys were talking about the Wonka Bar scene and [were] legitimately excited,” said LaMaina. “I figured, I know some kids and adults that would get excited at the thought of winning a huge prize. The burrito is the perfect vessel.”
Gold tinfoil tickets will be placed inside the packaging of random burritos for the next three months. Dine in or take out for a chance to be a winner. LaMaina does have one request if you do grab a winning burrito on the go.
“We just ask that you video it when you peel the tinfoil back,” he said. “We don’t want to miss it.”
Even if you come up short on finding a ticket, you’ll still get to enjoy the process of going for the gold. The restaurants serve a wide variety of burritos including the carne asada with grilled marinated red chili rubbed flank steak and a veggie burrito stuffed with onions, zucchini, peppers and broccoli.
Lucharitos is located at 119 Main Street in Greenport and Little Lucharitos is located at 487 Main Road in Aquebogue.
