There was a trashy little place in Albuquerque called “The Burrito Box”... it’s slogan was “Bite and Wipe”... It didn’t make it.
What a slogan! Gads!
there’s NO WAY any burrito machine could possibly compete with a nice big double chili Tommy cheese burger ...
I think burritos are so “LA”
I mean that in a good way, if you are a devotee of California style Mexican cuisine
Maybe not out of a machine, though
Yup. The original Tommys wasn’t much bigger than that box either.
Well, it might work, but I’d have to think you could get a burrito from a local stand or taco truck that would be cheaper and tastier.
I’ve heard of make-your-own-pizza vending machines, too. You picked your toppings, and it bakes it up for you.
Can a falafal machine be far behind?
I ate a falafal and now I falafal.
I misread the title at first as “Burro vending machine”
yeah and it was (I hear it still is) wonderfully greasy and tasty ... amazingly delicious!
and they branched out too, have many outlets now all the way to Las Vegas (!)
I wonder if my olde stomache would still tolerate it, tho?
where’s the chili?
There is no chili at In N Out. They sell only hamburgers, fries, and drinks. Everybody who works at In N Out speaks English and the burgers are great.
I love the one in Rampart. I used to see gang bangers sit next to cops who were next to lawyers chomping down chili burgers......mmmmmmm
I lived in L.A. for a couple of years back in the late ‘70’s. To this day I remember eating the best burrito I’d ever had. Seems like it was a small place on Santa Monica Blvd. or thereabouts. I lived in Santa Monica, later on in Hollywood. But it was during my time in Santa Monica.
What a treat...much larger and better tasting than those Taco Bell burritos I had back home. Plus lots of sour cream. Wish I could remember the name of that place,,and wonder if it’s still there.
Of course - more refined palates prefer
Rampart and Beverly was the first Tommys.
Can you rank the customers you mentioned, which would you prefer to sit (or stand) next to the most and least?
gang bangers, cops, lawyers?
toss in politicians too?
note that they all make money off the rest of us?
I am the one who clucks.
looks very good but if it aint got no chili.....
(Tommyburgers are special mostly for the chili, but they were always very fresh and good otherwise, too, at least when I was eating them back in the Paleolithic Age)
Now I wanna go re-watch the whole damn series on NetFlix.
Whats the big they been dispensing frozen burritos from vending machines from the 70’s that i know of...used to buy them all the time at college, there was a red hot one that was really good I liked
Hah. When we bought our boat we became friendly with the guy across and a couple of boats down from us. I must have walked by his boat a million times before my ‘duh’ moment when I walked onto our boat and told hubby.......OMG ________’s boat is ‘phucifino’!!! Lol
$15 an hour minimum wage or pay for a burrito machine. What to do... what to do...
And...and...(drum roll)...they have a Christian message alongside each order! Ooogada Boogada!
It’s an interesting idea, but I’d rather get my burrito from the catering truck.
Best. Fast. Food. Burger. Ever.
For this thread, I’ll spare everyone my usual spiel about why I love In-N-Out. :)
In N Out use to sell/give away bumper stickers but had to stop because people would cut off the B and the R and the bumper sticker would then read “ IN N OUT URGE.” I kid you not, it’s a true story.
Here’s a link to the real Los Pollos Hermanos.
Personally I enjoy the Twisters burrito there.
I dunno, I'm not ruling out that there could be a small Mexican chef crammed into that box. You find them in the strangest places sometimes:
I know. I used to see In-N-Out Urge stickers all the time when I lived in southern CA.
