Vidalia’s first Barberitos restaurant, located at 2105 First Street, is scheduled to open on October 1, 2018. Located in a newly developed space next to Starbucks, the Vidalia location will offer farm-fresh food for customers seeking a healthy and flavorful quick-service option for lunch and dinner.
Lee Evans is the owner and will be operating the restaurant with his wife, Jennifer. “We are thrilled to open our doors here in Vidalia, and we look forward to serving the community,” Evans said. “Barberitos is a place the whole family can enjoy,” he added.
“It’s always been a dream of mine to watch Barberitos grow into a brand that communities love and respect,” said Downing Barber, founder of Barberitos. “Our expansion throughout the state and the Southeast is a testament to our customers, and we are excited to be expanding into Vidalia.”
Committed to serving farm-fresh food, Barberitos offers vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options, along with chargrilled chicken and steak for protein lovers. All of the salsas, guacamole, hot sauces, marinades and salad dressings are made from scratch each day. The vegetables that comprise the many toppings from which customers can choose are also prepared fresh daily. In addition, full-service catering will be available at the new Vidalia location, including boxed lunches and taco, nacho, salad or fajita bars that can be customized to serve a few to several hundred people.
Founded in 2000 by Downing Barber, Barberitos has grown to more than 50 locations in Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Tennessee, Virginia, South Carolina and North Carolina.
