plea

The Burrito Bunker has been closed for three weeks. I'm suffering from withdrawal. Burrito Bunker crisis

Are (or, God forbid, were) their burritos appreciably better than Cosmic Cantina's? It's been a while since I've had a Burrito Bunker burrito, and my memory is faulty. Regardless, I hope your inadvertent hunger strike ends soon.

Ah, the great Cosmic Cantina/BB debate. I have lived in both worlds. Those who know of both, feel free to join in.

It took me a long time to figure it all out. I tried the Cantina when they first came to Chapel Hill. Their burritos are very comfortable, warm, and non-threatening. There's nothing wrong with a Cantina burrito. And I must admit that the BB's burritos are quite similar (just add the optional jalepenos). But I learned my true love, eventually: tacos. And the Cantina simply cannot do tacos. My reasons are simple: better ingredients, a lot more taste (their marinated chicken? Heavenly), and phenomenal price. Come noontime, people line up like addicts. And now... I feel so... hollow. :)

I wondered if that was you, posting about that!

I haven't been to the BB in a long time, but I do remember back in the day, going there wearing white jeans. And then somehow eating a large burrito without ruining them. for me, that was quite a feat. and I would never ever wear white jeans now, so it must have been like...a decade ago.
