Hot for habanero

. February 28, 2013.

The spice ranges from sweet to hardcore at Hot Head Burritos, a new restaurant at 2025 Tiffin Ave. Not feeling the heat? Try the sweet habanero or ranch sauce as an addition to your burrito. Want to wake up your taste buds? Perhaps the eight-alarm straight habanero will impress you. Either way, Hot Head Burritos lets you make your burrito to order.

Owner Derrick Snyder opened a Findlay location of the franchise in December, after experiencing Hot Head Burritos in Dayton. He believed the 12 different sauces and nearly unlimited burrito combinations, from vegetarian to pork — as well as a kids menu and other specials — filled an empty niche in the local casual dining market.  Kids meals for those 12 and under include smaller portions, a small drink and a cookie for $4.29. The restaurant also offers an information sheet touting their gluten-restricted items. Patrons can also call or fax orders in for pickup, and catering is available. “You can come in and not just get a straight burrito,” says Snyder.

Hours are 10:30am to 10pm Monday through Saturday and 11am to 10pm Sunday. For more information, call 419-429-0969 or visit —RB
