Fuzzy’s Lingo Explained

While each Fuzzy’s Taco Shop is unique, we all speak a similar language. Sure, a lot of our guests actually speak different languages, but the Fuzzy’s lingo binds us all together.

What is this lingo exactly? Can you learn it?

You bet your guacamole you can.

Here’s some Fuzzy’s lingo so you know what the heck we’re talking about next time you’re in Fuzzy’s Land.

Chimichurri

It’s pronounced like cheemey choorey. Not only is it just fun to say, it’s wonderful on top of just about everything. Originating from Argentina, it’s a green sauce made of finely chopped parsley, minced garlic, vegetable oil, oregano and white vinegar. We repeat: It goes well on everything. We’d put it on pizza and burgers if we were into that non-taco mumbo jumbo.

Sopapillas

We’ve offered an extended history lesson on the origins of this Mexican dessert, which you can read here. But if you’d like the Spark Notes version, sopapillas are flour tortilla chips lightly fried and topped with cinnamon, sugar and honey.

Helpful hint: They’re nice to look at, but our guests tend to prefer them in their bellies.

Drunken Pig

No, there aren’t drunken pigs walking around Fuzzy’s. It’s a soup; a pork ’n’ bean soup to be specific. This warm bowl of molten goodness consists of borracho beans served with shredded spicy pork, shredded cheese, pico de gallo and tortilla chips.

Yum-my-ness.

Big Fuzz

It’s not a giant burrito or quesadilla smothered in enchiladas (see: smothered). It’s our most popular breakfast sandwich, of course! You’ve got a telera roll topped with two fried eggs, bacon, shredded cheese, jalapeños and Latin-fried potatoes. Can we get an “amen”?

Not only is it amazing, but we’ve been serving this breakfast item all day way longer than any of those other big fast food places. Just sayin’.

Fuzzy’s Butt Burnin’ Hot Sauce

OK, this one is basically what it sounds like but might be a tad dramatic. It’s our signature hot sauce, and while it might not totally live up to the name, it provides delicious flavor and just the right amount of heat to any Fuzzy’s dish. You can actually order it from our online store. Just gonna leave this here

Smothered

“Smothered” is an adjective in Fuzzy’s vernacular. It’s how we recommend you eat our jumbo burritos: smothered in your choice of salsa, queso, beef enchilada sauce or green enchilada sauce.

Beerita

Beer + margarita = beerita. It’s a nice, cold cerveza dunked upside-down into an even colder Fuzzy’s margarita. We didn’t invent them, but we’d like to think we perfected them.

Fuzzy Dust

It’s what we season a lot of our Fuzzy’s menu items with. Want to get that Fuzzy’s flavor on your meals at home? Look no further, friends.

Chilaquiles

Two words: breakfast nachos.

Well, sorta. We might actually need more than two words. The dish is composed of two scrambled eggs, shredded chicken, tortillas strips, shredded cheese and pico de gallo, served with refried beans, Latin-fried potatoes, two flour tortillas and salsa verde. So, breakfast nachos deluxe, maybe?

Licker License

If you hear us bragging about our “licker license,” it’s not our ability to serve alcohol. It’s actually our commitment to serving our four-legged friends out on our patios. Not all Fuzzy’s have their licker license, but if yours does, feel free to bring Scruffy to your next happy hour.
