Watch out, Los Betos. There's another bambino-sized breakfast burrito on the block. Kelly Nichols opened Kurly Jo's That's a Wrap mid-March at 3940 Overland Road between Roosevelt and Latah streets.
"We do pretty much everything in tortillas, they're 12 ½-inch so they all come out to be at least a pound," said Nichols.
Breakfast wraps include the Pig Out, with eggs, hash browns and cheese; and the Eggs Benny, with ham, eggs and hollandaise.
And Nichols does more than breakfast.
"We have a full lunch menu, as well, where we do things like a Philly and a fajita to a Caesar, occasionally a turkey avocado, a French dip," said Nichols.
Kurly Jo's is open from 6:30 a.m.-6:30 p.m. Monday-Saturday, and 7 a.m.-4 p.m. on Sunday. For more info, visit facebook.com/kurlyjosthatsawrap.
