On Midland Drive, two sit-down restaurants are next to each other, offering very different menus: Warrens Family Restaurant at 5523 S. 3500 W. and Burrito Grande at 5511 S. 3500 W.
Warrens was founded in the 1950s by retired Roy Sheriff Doug Warren. His philosophy was “Start from scratch with the freshest, most nutritious ingredients, and cook the food fresh right when it’s ordered. It’s just that simple.” That continues to be the philosophy today.
In addition to a spacious dining room, Warrens also offers a very popular drive-through window.
You’ll find everything from breakfast (eggs, pancakes, omelets, French toast, wraps, and biscuits and gravy) to scrumptious, juicy burgers, salad bar, and sandwiches such as cheese or patty melt, chicken, turkey, BLT, French dip, Reuben, philly, fish, salmon, and more!. Warrens offers a wide variety of soft drinks (including custom creations), iced tea, and lemonade. Try the real English chips, tempura mushrooms, funnel cake fries, sweet scones, or fries. For desserts, enjoy a fantastic old-fashioned banana split, cone, sundae, shake, or freeze.
Burrito Grande opened around 2007, and was beautifully renovated two years ago. From enchiladas to chimichangas, they have something to satisfy any craving! Enjoy breakfast all day or choose from a wide variety of lunch and dinner combinations. When you think “Mexican food,” this is a great place!
Are you in the mood for a burrito? The fillings here are in homemade 14-inch flour tortillas. Smother it with Burrito Grande Enchilada Sauce or Chile Verde Sauce.
Choose from many combination plates: Chimichangas, burritos, enchiladas, tacos, tamales, tortas, or tostadas, served with rice and beans. Pick your favorite flavors: bean and cheese, shredded beef, roast pork, chopped steak, sausage, chicken, chile relleno, shrimp, chorizo, veggie, and much more. Some combinations can be converted to vegetarian – ask your server. For your convenience, they can provide an extra plate for split meals. Alcoholic beverages are available. Don’t have time to go out to eat? DoorDash is available.
