King Burrito is coming back to central Fayetteville.

The local giant burrito chain will soon open its third Fayetteville location in the space formerly home to Wendy’s at 2050 N. College Ave.

The restaurant also operates locations on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Joyce Boulevard in Fayetteville, along with Springdale, Rogers, and Bentonville locations.

The restaurant also once operated a location on College Avenue, but that store became a similar concept called El Taco Loco.

The restaurant specializes in giant burritos and other Mexican food fare.

Owner Manny Fernandez told us he hopes to be up and running with the new location sometime after the first of the year in 2021.
