Roberto's - Burrito Banadero/Potato Burrito

Well, last week was a bust.  The hiatus went on longer than any of us wanted.  There was a slim chance for a breakfast burrito from a donut place, but no.  Instead we come back at ya with a quest to a Las Cruces landmark(?).  Roberto's has been providing cheap Mexican food to the masses since, well, a long time.  And they are renowned for making the world's biggest enchilada.  We wish they were renowned for making the world's most delicious burrito.  This is not the case.  All in all what they really excel at is making cheap, mediocre Mexican food.  The banadero was a bit spicy and tasty, and the potato burrito was bland as hell.  Eating both of them back to back was somewhat like a throwback to the uneven burritos of OBQ, when all the potatoes would get jammed on one side of the burrito; it would start out great and get awful by the end.  Isaac tries to bait Ben into making racist comments.  We all decide a little more ethnicity is needed back on the quest.

Ingredients: Banadero - Green Chile, Beef, Cheese, and smothered with Green Chile sauce; Potato Burrito - Potatoes.  Yeah, just potatoes.

Ben - Someone else's dog, you get to meet a dog, and see it, and you think, "This is a cool dog," and then it goes away.  The potato one though, used napkins, someone else used them, and you have to clean them up.
Daniel - Instant mashed potatoes, for both burritos together, I used to eat them with bread after high school while watching Star Trek, kind of a nostalgic memory, but the reality is not that great.
Isaac -Thanksgiving, for the first burrito, because I'm thankful it's not the second burrito.

Hiatus Schmiatus

So we're on break again.  We had hoped to be able to cram a burrito into the beginning of last week, but alas, this was not to be.  So let's talk about t-shirts instead.

I got the first one in the mail last week and it looked like ass.  The orange colors completely washed out Ben's face and there were other color/contrast issues as well.  Before I could warn folks about it, Ben and Sage both ordered shirts.  Their's were fine.  Or better, anyway.  I put in for a replacement and should have it soon.  So the link is back up in the merchandise post.  Buy t-shirts for everyone you know!

Next week, burritos or bust.

Hiebert's - Steak Finger Burrito

Oh, Hiebert's, we had such high hopes for you.  This burrito is apparently misnamed.  One would think that Steak Finger Burrito would mean a burrito filled with steak fingers.  One would be incorrect.  Instead, we got a burrito filled with steak, without batter of any kind.  Disappointment abounds!  And it tastes like Hamburger Helper.  Behold, Ben wears a Burrito Quest shirt featuring himself as he quests!  It is a magical thing.

Ingredients: Steak, Green Chile, and Cheese

Ben - Forgetting to put the trash can out on trash day.
Daniel - Henry Weinhard's Private Reserve, if I didn't know any better I'd say it's really good.
Isaac -Cat or dog food, you look at it and think "That looks good" then you pick it up and put it in your mouth and it's not good.  I end up feeling just a little confused and stupid.
