Cheap burrito day draws big crowd at Stockland

STOCKLAND'S Guzman Y Gomez Mexican restaurant had queues of people lining up for its food on Tuesday.

More than 13 people waited to order at one time, eager to feast on the $5 burrito and Corona combo, plus other specials.

The specials were on offer for Cinco de Mayo, a traditional celebration of Mexico defeating French occupiers.

Guzman Y Gomez said it was "a day we fill our hearts with pride and our stomachs with burritos".

More than 80 orders had been completed by noon.

Three fire trucks and two ambulances of emergency workers also turned up for the lunchtime rush.

We want to taco ‘bout speeding. #SpeedingIsNoBueno Slow down, there’s plenty of FREE burritos for everyone. We’ve had five, but that’s nacho business. Too many?#SaidNoJuanEver #CincoDeMayo
