Burrito place coming to Hillsborough: A new eatery called the Colorado Burrito Place is expected to open in The Shops at Daniel Boone Village in Hillsborough later this month, serving breakfast and lunch.

Carmen Vigil, who said she’s from Colorado, is opening the restaurant with her fiancé. The location of the restaurant at 116 Daniel Boone St. is next to Waffle House in a building that previously housed a tobacco shop, she said. The space looks like a cabin, and Vigil said she is going to play up the rustic theme on the interior.

The menu will include burritos such as the “Denver Burrito,” which is made with Spanish eggs, potatoes smothered in green chili and cheese, and the “Rocky Mountain Burrito,” which is served with Spanish chicken and Spanish rice. The “Mile High Burrito” will have corn, zucchini, potatoes and chili.

Vigil also said she’ll be serving something called “Carmen’s Colorado Green Chile Burger,” which she said is a tortilla folded over beans and a hamburger patty covered with pork green chili, lettuce, tomato and cheese.

She plans to have weekly breakfast specials and dessert items such as cheesecake in a jar, lemon meringue pie in a jar, and banana nut bread in a jar.

“My mom used to make cherry and strawberry cheesecake; she didn’t’ really have anything to put it in, so she’d put in a mason jar for us,” Vigil said. “It’s a really, really cool idea.”

The hours will be from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday to Saturday. Vigil said they’re looking to extend the hours in the winter.

Also in Hillsborough, the Hillsborough Yoga & Healing Arts has opened a second studio, this one downtown at 121 W. Margaret Lane.

This is the second studio for the company in addition to their location at 1812 Becketts Ridge Drive. The studio is next to the bar Hot Tin Roof, which opened earlier this year.


Vintage shop in Chapel Hill: A vintage clothing shop called Rumors has opened on Graham Street in Chapel Hill.

It’s in the old location of Lucky Star, the neighborhood market and coffee hangout that was slated to move with Back Alley Bikes when the bicycle shop took over the old Nice Price Books space in Carrboro.

Jason Merrill, co-owner of Back Alley Bikes, said Lucky Star did not open at the bike shop location, but he said it still may happen.

“It’s between locations,” he said.


Radius Pizzeria & Pub event: In honor of National Grandparents’ Day, Radius Pizzeria & Pub in Hillsborough is offering free servings of peach dessert Sunday for grandparents.

To receive a serving, customers are asked to bring in their grandchildren or to bring a photograph of them.

The owners of the eatery, Kate and Mick Carroll, moved to Hillsborough to be closer to their parents, who help look after their children, according to a news release.

“Mick and I both share a huge love and respect for our older generations,” Kate Carroll said in a statement in the release.

Radius is also opening at 10 a.m. Sunday for brunch. The restaurant will be open for brunch on Saturdays and Sundays, offering an expanded menu from what they have offered for their “original Saturday 2nd Breakfast.”

Radius will also have more baked goods on the menu such as coffee cake and popovers with house-made preserves.
