Habaneros - Macho Chimichanga

Lordy Bagordy!  The biggest burrito we have ever seen.  Daniel's brother once ate a two-pound burrito to win a t-shirt.  This is about the same size burrito, only we don't get prizes.  Habaneros is a drive-in that used to be a Sonic or something long ago.  We were drawn to it by one its signs proclaiming "King Burrito."  Turns out that's what they call all of their burritos.  Not really a chimichanga, as it would likely be impossible to fry this log without it falling apart, but still a tasty burrito.  At least for the first third of it.  A word of advice: If you commit yourself to eating all of this monstrosity, do it quickly, before your stomach can signal your brain to protest.  The fact that none of us vomited after eating this thing may only be due to our training; consume at your own risk!

Ingredients: Beef, Chicken, Rice, Beans, Cheese, Red or Green Chile, Guacamole, and Sour Cream

Ben - Spandex, in theory is an awesome thing, but not in practice.
Daniel - A Great Old One, so big as to be unmanageable but also intriguing.
Isaac - A nuclear bomb, the concept is amazing, but in reality it's pretty awful.

Green Burrito - Beef, Bean, & Cheese

Another chain fast-food burrito so quickly...not so good.  Green Burrito was a chain that was bought by Carl's Jr.  The association, as far as we can tell, may have downgraded the quality of this food.  That's if they were ever good in the first place, which, if not, then how'd they get snatched up by a national chain?  Ben nails it on the head with his description of it as a microwave convenience-store burrito.  Also, the salsa pretty much just tasted like sugar.  Looking at their website some of the burritos look pretty tasty.  We may never find out if that is true.  Fearing the burritos may not be hefty enough we picked up some little Crisp Burritos to go with the main course.  They were not much better.

Ingredients: "Seasoned ground beef, refried beans, jack and cheddar cheeses, and hot sauce wrapped in a flour tortilla"

Ben - Bathroom sink backing up, cause then your realize the sink is connected to the toilet.
Daniel - Whacking yourself in the nuts while doing yard work.
Isaac - A coma, and not knowing whether you are going to wake or not.
+Crisp Burritos - The tail end of an allergy attack, blisters, closing your fingers in the door

Sonic - Super Sonic Breakfast Burrito

The first of our, "maybe you don't want to go here for burritos" burritos.  Sub-par tortilla wrapped around ingredients that tasted like they were manufactured to taste good, but somehow didn't.  The jalapeƱos were likely the high point of the whole thing.  We were so excited about the super special ingredient in this burrito (tater tots, that is) that a mountain of tater tots was purchased along with the burritos.  Behold, as Isaac stuffs his mouth with an astounding 21 tater tots!

Ingredients: "Savory Sausage, Scrambled Egg, Melty Cheese, Tater Tots, Diced Onions, Ripe Tomatoes and Spicy JalapeƱos"

Ben - Accidentally running a red light, but there are no cops around.
Daniel - Reading a wikipedia article to keep from being bored at work, it's better than falling asleep at your desk.
Isaac - Wet cardboard, it's about that exciting.
+Tots - Tummy ache, Like watching a man put 22 tots in his mouth, Going to see an unimpressive national monument

El Sombrero - Chicken Fajita Burrito (Smothered with Chile Con Queso)

The first sit-down, fork-necessary burrito of the quest.  Hearty pieces of chicken, spicy queso; tasty and filling.  Santa Fe Gill still misses us, or Ben anyway.  There is a lot of chip crunching on this episode.  Ben douches out on our rating system.  Our answer, circus animal cookies are delicious.

Ingredients: Chicken, Onions, Peppers, Chile Con Queso

Ben - Bag o' cookies, cookies, like in a bag, where they are mine.  A bag of Albertsons cookies.
Daniel - Chocolate birthday cake, it's not my favorite cake but it's good.
Isaac - Battletoads, cool, well maybe, either way mutant amphibians, not as cool as mutant reptile turtles.
