Den­ver’s Break­fast Bur­rito of Cham­pi­ons moves into round 2 vot­ing

The Denver Post - - FRONT PAGE - By Allyson Reedy

With just short of 10,000 votes cast (WHAT?!), the first round of break­fast bur­rito March Mad­ness was full of sur­prises. We lost three No. 2 seeds (Araujo’s Res­tau­rant, Taco Wagon and Pete’s Kitchen), and the bat­tle be­tween Big Mama’s Bur­ri­tos and The Orig­i­nal Chubby’s was neck-in-neck to the very end, when Chubby’s pulled into the lead at the last sec­ond.

Now that the Sweet 16 field has been set, who’s got what it takes to go the dis­tance? Does Bon­fire Bur­ri­tos have the stamina to fend off La Fuente? Will Chubby’s be able to pull out an­other win against The Bur­rito Com­pany or will the No. 1 seed fall?

Vot­ing (at the­know.den­ver­ for this round is open un­til noon on Tues­day, March 21, so keep sup­port­ing your fa­vorite bur­ri­tos and eat­ing your way to break­fast glory. The con­tenders, in al­pha­bet­i­cal or­der:
