It’s after midnight. You’re awake, hungry, and tired of the same old options. Enter Backdoor Burritos. Backdoor is a new concept operating out of the back entrance of popluar cajun restaurant Da Levee, located at 765 North High Street in The Short North.

“Every decent sized city I have ever been has late night burritos,” says owner Justin Boehme. “Columbus just has pizza and gyros, so I think this is exactly what the Short North needs.”

The menu at Backdoor is simple. It consists of four types of grilled burritos: pulled chicken, spicy sausage, ground beef and vegetarian. Prices range from $6-8 and additional toppings include sour cream and chili cheese.

“I love burritos, so I made them how I would want them if I were a patron,” says Boehme. “Grilled on the outside, gooey and meaty on the inside.”

Boehme originally thought about keeping Da Levee open late at night, but eventually decided that the walk-up burrito concept would work better for managing potentially unruly customers.

“I dont want to deal with loads of drunk people inside my restaurant at 3am,” says Boehme. “I came up with the idea of Backdoor Burritos a while ago when I was wondering around drunk and hungry.”

If you want to try out Backdoor, your options are fairly limited for the time being. Hours are midnight to 3am, Fridays and Saturdays only. Boehme says he is testing the waters with this new concept and has plans for longer hours this coming Spring.
