Barrie’s Restaurants Still Serving

Today is our 6th post to try and help our local restaurants. We have so many we don’t know how lucky we are on Barrie. We want to come out of this crisis with as many still open as possible. We tried today to feature restaurants all offering something different depending on your taste. We apologise we haven’t been able to cover them all so far. As long as we are in this lockdown, we will continue to highlight as many as possible. We will publish a comprehensive list and post it on Wednesday the 29th of April, so if we haven’t yet mentioned your restaurant let us know and we feature you?
Today we are highlighting another eight restaurants; please support if you can in these hard times.

Quesada Burritos & Tacos

Quesada believes every bite of a Quesada burrito, taco, quesadilla or salad should bring the Joy of Mex today! Hand-mashed guacamole and house-made salsa take hours of chopping, roasting and blending. Doing it right takes time. But we wouldn’t have it any other way. Creating a delicious pleasurable experience is our ultimate goal. Bite into Quesada, and you’ll experience The Joy of Mex.
