Tortilla, the UK’s largest fast-casual Mexican restaurant brand, has officially opened its doors of its 52nd restaurant, located in Lincoln city centre, at 1 Exchange Square, Lincoln (LN5 7ET), on Friday 12th August.
As part of the opening weekend celebrations, Tortilla gave away over 200 free meals on Friday, helping train new staff and introduce new customers to the popular Mexican brand.
Seating up to 54 people across one floor with both inside and outside tables, the restaurant’s opening has created 25-30 new local jobs across front-of-house, kitchen, and management roles.
The launch of the Tortilla in Lincoln brings with it the brand’s customisable and authentic California-style menu, with dishes to suit all tastes, cravings, or dietary requirements. Whether ordering in-store, click-and-collect to takeaway, or for delivery, customers can build their own meal with a choice of tasty fillings such as Mexican rice, black beans, grilled seasonal veggies and fresh mild, medium and hot salsas, including their fresh, hand-smashed guacamole.
Its choice of protein—served in tacos, burritos, bowls, quesadillas and atop nachos queso —includes slow-cooked Barbacoa with grass-fed British Isle brisket, grilled chicken or succulent pulled carnitas pork. Approved by the Vegetarian & Vegan Society, Tortilla also serves an organic tempeh Chilli No Carne or a choice of grilled seasonal veggies. All toppings are prepared fresh on-site each morning and every dish is made to order.
In addition to being fully customisable, Tortilla provides an affordable bite-to-eat with filling burritos from £6.75, a trio of tacos from £6.65, and chips and salsa from £2.85. Its loyalty club also offers customers a complimentary 10th main when they buy 9 —ideal for local workers or shoppers.
