Now burrito fans as well as basketball fans have a reason to get "mad" this March. Cal-mex chain and Bethesda favorite California Tortilla has launched an 'Elito 8' competition to determine the next limited-time menu offering.
During the NCAA-style showdown, CalTort fans can vote for eight possible menu items in four brackets, leading up to the semi-finals and culminating with an April 5 championship. The "Elito 8" are being revealed "Selection Monday," March 18, on Facebook and the California Tortilla website.
Each online vote will be counted as an entry into a drawing for a catered NCAA Championship viewing party for 20. The winner will be announced April 6, just in time for the big game.
Competing for a coveted limited-time space on the CalTort menu are street tacos, pulled pork BBQ burrito, Korean BBQ tacos, Thai chicken burritos, Philly cheesesteak burritos, Mexican meatloaf bowl, teriyaki burrito and Bangkok shrimp bowl.
Two of the eight will each go head-to-head during round one, from March 30 through April 2, and winners will advance.
Once round one launches, fans can vote online once a day. Learn more about the menu teams and cast your vote on CalTort's blog.
