WSOU 89.5 FM and Tito’s Burritos & Wings have enjoyed a friendship ever since the iconic burritos, tacos and wings joint opened a location in South Orange.  It’s a relationship that began over food that helped sustain the staff of WSOU and blossomed into ongoing collaborations between the two organizations.

The Fat DJ is now being served at all Tito’s Burritos & Wings locations and is available through March 31. The burrito features golden chicken tenders and french fries with Tito’s cheeses, chipotle mayo and hot sauce. The full menu is available at  

“Working with a radio station as legendary as WSOU, that I myself have listened to since my teenage years, has been a lot of fun for Tito’s,” said Victoria Reyes, Tito’s General Manager.  “We’ve been impressed by the students’ professionalism and many of our employees and customers are fans of the station.  It just seemed natural to work together to create a WSOU inspired burrito – and people are loving it!”

WSOU Promotions Director Megan Stolarz led the brainstorming effort that helped create the Fat DJ Burrito.  “We wanted something that reflected our metal format, our Jersey roots and our love of Tito’s,” said Stolarz. “A burrito in the tradition of a fat sandwich made sense and we had a blast thinking up the ingredients.”

“This is an example of the power of radio, and the power of food,” noted Jennifer Kajzer, the station’s Underwriting Sales and Marketing Manager.  “Creating this new burrito grew organically out of the relationship between Tito’s and WSOU.  It shows the delicious things that can happen when two organizations admire each other’s work.”  

WSOU’s active rock format, a blend of heavy metal, punk, hardcore, post-hardcore and hard rock, can be heard on 89.5 FM throughout much of the New York market and streamed through
