Pine Street in Burlington's South End has gained yet another food offering with the recent addition of fare from El Gato Cantina.

Through the summer, the Mexican restaurant with locations in Burlington and Essex Junction will serve food Fridays and Saturdays at Queen City Brewery at 703 Pine Street, according to Queen City cofounder and brewmaster Paul Hale.

"They bring stuff that's ready to go, and they have hot plates to keep it hot," Hale said. He expects El Gato will mix up the options: tacos one week, burritos the next.

"Fridays are really fun here because we get a lot of regular customers," Hale noted, adding that the brewery typically gets visitors from tour groups on Saturdays.

Meals from El Gato will supplement the usual food served at Queen City: brats, hot dogs, veggie dogs and soft pretzels. El Gato starts service at the brewery at 5 p.m. on Fridays and 3 p.m. on Saturdays.
