Carrburrito’s has been a welcome addition to the Davidson dining scene since it opened in early 2013. Everything, from the daily specials to the homemade salsas to the crazy margarita combinations, is fresh. Doug and Edie Surratt recognized the gap in dining options and thought that the Carrburrito’s concept might be able to fill the hole in the town’s dining scene. The name Carrburrito’s hails from the restaurant’s first location, in Carrboro, NC, owned by Edie’s sister, Gail, and brother-in-law, Bill Fairbanks. The four all own the Davidson location, but Edie and Doug are the ones with local ties. The couple has lived in the Lake Norman area for 20 years and both Edie and Doug are active members of the community. Edie works at Davidson’s own classical music radio station, WDAV, and Doug owns a healthcare consulting firm in downtown Davidson.
Since opening in 2013, the restaurant has attracted both college students and Davidson residents alike. The fare is Mexican-inspired and the menu boasts burritos, tacos, quesadillas, and tostadas with a variety of fillings to choose from. Freshly made salsas and sides are necessary to round out the meal here. Carrburrito’s also has a patio dining area and a lively bar area with a large selection of house made margaritas, sangria, and beer. The restaurant not only serves great food but has become a community gathering spot.
Thank you, Carrburrito’s, for your continuing supporting of Davidson Housing Coalition!
