Get ready to feast yourself into oblivion with these National Burrito Day deals — your wallet can thank me later.

Everyone else can get free queso with any purchase over $10, also on April 2.

National Burrito Day should really be everyday, but it's kind of a blessing in disguise that it only comes once a year. This is certainly an opportune time for the holiday to come, and there's no doubt in our minds we'll be taking advantage of at least one (or all) of these this year... a burrito-induced food coma is certainly on all of our to-do lists right now.
