I kid you not when I say that last Tuesday my husband ordered a burrito that was the size of a small child. I swear the thing weighed at least four pounds.
Tuesday is Cantina Day at Grand Tavern restaurant on Marketplace Circle and they have a burrito that is not for the faint-of-heart. It's filled with your choice of shredded beef or chicken, beans and rice, smothered in sauce and cheese and served with lettuce, tomato, sour cream and salsa. When all was said and done, three-quarters of it came home in a doggy bag. Not that it wasn't delicious — it was. It was just that big.
(It's actually rumored that this burrito has auditioned for "Man Vs. Food" on the Travel Channel.)
Cantina Day also includes $3 Coronas, $3.50 Dos Equis and $4.50 margaritas to wash that big burrito down.
If you want to take this burrito on, it's at Grand Tavern on Tuesdays for $7.95. Get it, before it gets you!
And now, from burritos to romance.....
