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.
