That’s a wrap!

A new eatery will bring “burgritos” — a frankenfood mash-up of a burrito, a hamburger, and fries — to Fourth Avenue when it opens early next year, and the creator promises it is less disgusting than it sounds.

“It might be one of the greatest things you’ll ever eat,” said Darin Laby, who co-owns Burgrito’s restaurant and its titular burger-burrito mash-up with his brother Lawrence in Long Island, and are building out their second location at 173 Fourth Ave. between Degraw and Sackett streets.

Burgrito’s menu also includes standard burgers and Mexican dishes, but the restaurant’s signature dish — a seven-once burger with bacon, cheese, lettuce, tomato, and fries slathered in chipotle mayo and wrapped in a tortilla — has been its hot-ticket item for the two years since the brothers went into business in 2014, according to Laby.

“It’s by far the number-one selling item,” he said.

The Slope eatery will seat between 20 and 25 diners, but the siblings expect that at least half their business will be delivery, Laby said.

Lawrence is a vegan and has never tasted the splendor of Burgrito’s namesake dish, but that has given him more time to focus on beefing up Burgrito’s bill of fare with a number of items decidedly lacking in beef, including an entirely vegan chili recipe popular among Long Island leaf eaters, Darin Laby said.

“We’ve developed a side of the menu catering to vegans and vegetarians, and I know in Brooklyn that’s pretty popular,” he said.

Why don't they just serve a lump of fat wrapped in a cholesterol bun? Gross, but fat people will love it.
