The Pike Restaurant & Bar Brings Back the ‘Turkurrito’
Leave it to Chris Reece to create the “Turkurrito,” a traditional Thanksgiving turkey dinner wrapped in a tortilla. The former Social Distortion drummer and owner of The Pike Restaurant & Bar along Retro Row in Long Beach is offering the burrito for a limited time only for $16.95. A vegan option is available as well.
The Turkurrito features slices of deep-fried turkey with stuffing, gravy, and cranberry sauce wrapped in a grilled flour tortilla.
“Some might think Thanksgiving dinner served burrito-style is an acquired taste,” said Reece, who is a hands-on restaurateur and often seen behind the bar much to the delight of Social Distortion fans. “But we have offered it every year, and it’s incredibly popular with our guests.”
The Pike is also toasting the holidays with an array of holiday cocktails, including:
