The eatery at 606 Florida Ave. NW has applied to start serving alcohol, according to a recent filing with D.C.’s Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration (ABRA).

A Rito Loco employee said the restaurant will likely serve beer and margaritas but added that the drink menu was not yet finalized.

The burrito-centric restaurant born out of a food truck is also seeking to serve booze in an outdoor seating area and offer live entertainment, the application notice says:

Restaurant serving Mexican food with seating for 49 and a Total Occupancy Load of 49. Applicant has also requested an Entertainment Endorsement and a Summer Garden with 47 seats.

Rito Loco’s menu includes burritos, tacos and rice bowls with beef, chicken, seafood and eggs.
