Oscar's Burritos, is open again.   They are open and serving up their delicious burritos.  I cannot begin to tell you how happy this makes me, and I know it will make you happy as well.

What Happened?  Why Did they Close?

I had the honor of speaking with Oscar himself, and he told me that back in November, he injured his arm to the point it needed surgery.  Due to the injury he decided it was time to retire, and that is why they closed.

But, in the midst of closing he had a couple reach out to him and offer to purchase Oscar's Burritos, and he knew this was the couple to continue his legacy.

Who are the New Owners?

The new owners of Oscar's Burritos is Ruben and Maria Martinez.

They wanted to keep the name and the same recipes.

Will It Be the Same?

Oscar has been working with the Martinez's training them and sharing his recipes.  He is working with them daily and Oscar said he would stay with them as long as it takes for them to get it down.

So rest assured you will be getting the Oscar's Burritos you know and love.

What about former employee's

Oscar said that some of his employees will still be working at the restaurant.

If you have been craving Oscar's Burritos then you can fix that craving!  They are back to their normal hours, Monday - Saturday 6:30am-2pm.

Make your way to Oscar's for breakfast and lunch, let the new owners know you're excited to see them and say hi to Oscar while you can while he is training them in the ways of Oscar.

Maybe, just maybe, Oscar's just broke the curse on this building!

Amarillo's Cursed Buildings – Historic Route 66, 2813 SW 6th

There are some places around town that just can't seem to stay in business for very long. This is one of them.

The address of the cursed building is 2813 SW 6th Street. This building was originally built in 1930. This place was originally a service station. I'm sure in the heydays of Rt. 66, this place was the place to stop to get your car serviced. However, in the last 15 years, this building has seen many different faces.

LOOK: This "Amarillo Pictorial" is an Amazing Collection of Historical Photos!

Wow. Just wow.

Robbi McDaniel Rivers dug up this incredible magazine published in 1931. You'll find the many Amarillo buildings and landmarks that you know and love--they're brand new in these photos!
