Burrito bar to open on Dale Street this summer

A new Mexican restaurant is opening on Dale Street in Liverpool city centre this summer.

Changos Burrito Bar will launch at the site of the former Sayers bakery in the Queen Insurance Buildings in early June.

The eatery, which has a branch in Manchester city centre, offers a range of burritos alongside classic sides such as nachos and bottles of the popular Mexican soft drink ‘Jarritos’.

Changos revealed its plans to expand into Liverpool late last year, seeking the go-ahead to add a mezzanine floor and an outdoor seating area to the former Sayers premises.
