Cornerstone Pub & Kitchen Owners Bring Burritos to Barre

Posted By on Wed, Sep 11, 2013 at 1:49 PM

Keith Paxman and Rich McSheffrey have a lot on their plates — literally. Late last year, they opened Cornerstone Pub & Kitchen, then expanded to provide food service for the Country Club of Barre. But apparently their desire to feed their hometown has only grown. As soon as December 1, the lifelong friends will open Two Loco Guys at 136 North Main Street, the space formerly occupied by Espresso Bueno.

Paxman and McSheffrey originally planned to use the storefront as a catering kitchen for their regular off-site orders. But they soon realized that there was enough space to do something extra.

In front of the catering kitchen, Two Loco Guys will serve burritos and bowls, but as Paxman is quick to point out, not quesadillas or tacos. "We're not Mexican," he insists. "We'll have global flavors."

A full menu is still in the future, but Paxman says options might include Caribbean curry or Asian-style burritos alongside classic Mexican or Southwestern versions. Or a wrap stuffed with a bacon cheeseburger and caramelized onions.

Paxman emphasizes that gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan diners will all be well-fed at the new quick-service restaurant. Given the popularity of Cornerstone, lines for the December opening may soon fill the (newly repaired) Barre sidewalks.
