Burritos at Sleeping Giant Grill

Sleeping Giant Grill offers some hearty plates that include two big scoops of brown or white rice, a salad and an entrée. The best of the bowls are the hot and spicy Korean barbeque bowl and the divinely flavorful vegetarian Mexican bowl that contains both pinto beans and tofu.
