GLADSTONE PARK — Burrito House opened its newest location last week in Gladstone Park, bringing another option for Mexican cuisine to the neighborhood.

The restaurant, 6249 N. Milwaukee Ave., offers meat and vegetarian burritos, as well as tacos, tostadas and tamale dinners.

The business, known for fast yet authentic food, also has locations in Lakeview, Irving Park and suburban Niles. The Irving Park location opened in 2015 and the Lakeview joint has been in the neighborhood for more than 15 years, according to Facebook and a video of the businesses.

The Norwood Park location, which used to be home to a Chinese restaurant, is a welcome addition to the community, said Joe DiCiaula, president of the Gladstone Park Neighborhood Association.

The group hosted a Thursday visit to the restaurant as part of its Virtual Supper Club, which started at the beginning of the pandemic to support local restaurants by encouraging the community to order takeout and dine in when possible.

The group picks a restaurant every week to support and wanted to bring attention to Burrito House as it gets on its feet.

“We are excited to have them,” DiCiaula said. “I am familiar with them from the Niles location. … We really felt it was important to support them early and let people know that they are there.”

Having Burrito House in the neighborhood bolsters the area’s food scene and provides more options for eat out and supporting local businesses, especially amid the pandemic, DiCiaula said.

“We want the businesses and restaurants to succeed in our community,” he said.

Burrito House owners could not immediately be reached for comment.

The Gladstone Park Chamber of Commerce will host a ribbon-cutting to welcome the business to the neighborhood 1 p.m. Friday.

All of the Burrito House locations are open for dine-in and carryout 10:30 a.m.-2 a.m. Sunday-Thursday and 10:30 a.m.-5 a.m. Friday-Saturday.
