Our Story

The goal of  Burrito Shak was simple.  With a family; children ages one and three,  founder,  David Longo noticed a need for a  restaurant that served up  quality ingredients with flavorful chef inspired recipes in a  quick dining atmosphere.  He wanted to keep the menu tasty, yet affordable for all to enjoy.  

In  the spring of 2015, David Longo wanted to take his skills and experience and create a more casual, family-friendly restaurant concept that offered delicious, flavorful options in a quick service concept.  This is how Burrito Shak was born. The concept is built on Chef and Entrepreneurs  David  Longo’s  23+ year career in restaurants, including executive chef in fine dining establishments and foodservice management.      

Burrito Shak is a  combination  of everything our family loved;  flavorful food, beach vibes, and  family.  The founding Burrito Shak is located just 10 miles from the beach, so we knew to give our menu and décor a coastal vibe was a  must!   

Burrito Shak quickly became a hometown favorite in Hampstead,  N.C. Our patrons voted  Burrito Shak as #1 Tacos in North Carolina beating 63 fellow  competitors  in  an  elimination  style  taco  tournament.

We have a created a solid reputation for excellence and an ever growing loyal customer base. Our mission is to share the taste of high-quality  fresh-mex cuisine in a family friendly atmosphere and now we  are excited to offer a path for other entrepreneurs and food lovers  to achieve success through our franchising platform.
