In October of 2015 Dank Burrito opened in Morehead City. Dank means "fresh" or "of high quality." Owner Clarke Merrell, and his team have created delicious, unique burritos and tacos using a variety of proteins, housemade salsas, slaws, and kimchi. The restaurant was inspired from his original creation of the Dank Burrito Food Truck which was started in 2014 and still operates all around Carteret and surrounding counties. The Food Truck won the National Food Truck Rookie of the Year Honors in 2015.
