Breakfast Burritos. I’m a huge breakfast guy. The whole “Most Important Meal Of The Day” is a tradition that I follow. Those are words I live by. Yes, I live by those words. And they have never failed me. And of all the breakfast foods one could have, my favorite thing to eat in the world in the morning… The Breakfast Burrito. Food of a Loving and Caring God.
And there are none to be found in this area. I’m not going to say that North Carolina doesn’t know a good breakfast… they have that Southern Breakfast thing down. Grits and Eggs, all that and then some. But they don’t know a good Breakfast Burrito. At least not that I have seen.
Now, I did hit a Sheetz gas station chain with the fancy touch screen menu that lets you pick what you want in the burrito – and that was good. Namely because I was able to pick what I wanted in the thing. Other than that… Every breakfast burrito I’ve had in North Carolina, and Virginia for that matter, has been somewhere between Poor and Terrible.
Let me put it this way… they have been so bad here, that they make me miss the horrible breakfast burritos made at the IGA Deli behind Basin Sports in Vernal, Utah. Because those, as nasty as they usually were… you could ever once in awhile get one that was just “MMMM!” and it was delicious and made right all the disappointments before it. I’ve not had that in a Breakfast Burrito since I’ve been here.
Closest thing is Sonic. You know Sonic… the red button and the car hops that bring the food to your car. Yeah… they have their Super Sonic Breakfast Burrito, which is okay. But the problem is that Sonic hasn’t embraced the BB. So they don’t care. So they don’t fill the BB like they could. They make them small and thin and filled with disappointment and regret and after eating one you are still hungry, but not enough to do a second one. This morning I had one from Chic-Fil-A. Now, they do make a good chicken sandwich, I’ll give them that. But the just really need to avoid attempting a BB. Because what I had this morning was probably the worst thing ever. McDonald’s little cigarette thin things they call Breakfast Burritos, while just stupid, at least taste better than the shame Chic-Fil-A rolled into a stale flatbread. And McDonald’s. Just… stop. No… I mean it… just stop it.
