After Less Than Six Months, Fusion Burritos in Gilbert Has Closed

It seems the Valley just isn't ready for internationally inspired burritos via a drive-thru because after less than six months Fusion Burrito in Gilbert has closed its doors for good.

The restaurant served a menu of burritos stuffed with off-the-wall toppings including meatballs, mashed potatoes, and chicken salad. As an example, consider The Seoul burrito, which was packed with roasted pork, steamed rice, shredded cabbage, carrot, radish, cilantro, and mint.

It was a rough few months for the young restaurant, which had to close for a day in early June due to "plumbing issues caused by construction," according to an announcement on the restaurant's Facebook. The restaurant closed again about a week later due to more construction issues.

Then last week, the restaurant announced on Facebook it would be closing permanently.

Fusion Burrito opened earlier this summer at 546 North Gilbert Road and came courtesy of Johnston and Wale graduate Chip Rooney. In addition to fusion burritos and quesadillas, the restaurant's eclectic menu featured New Orleans-style beignets, salads, and a selection of tater tots.
