    ........I don't like 'em. I'm sure the food is decent quality, but I don't like it all being meshed/mashed up together. It tastes like a mushy mess. I won't go back........Anyone else?

    Mash? Like it's an all in one stuffing? Sounds grody to me.. but good for people with no teeth.

    I don't like it either. I prefer to just pile it on and roll it up. Now I want a burrito...

    Wait, isn't that kind of what a burrito is? A sack of flour where everything is all kind of mashed together inside?

    I once worked with a chick who would not finish the food if one item touched another item. She would also send stuff back to the kitchen if it came out touching. I'm talking like... "The mashed potatoes are touching the meatloaf!" kind of issues. "The green beans are touching the corn! I can't eat that!"

    She was in her 40's... and a mother of two.

    Hilarious!

    Do you mean mashed into a filling paste? Because that is gross.

    On the other hand if you mean ingredients mixed together in a bowl and then dumped in the tortilla - then man, you have issues. That's the only way to go. Nothing worse than cheap burritto places that put the ingredients in and wrap it up with no mixing. You have to wade through dry patches then hit just an overwhelming pocket of sour cream or something. It's nasty.

    Is this the weekly 2HBStrat "what the hell are you talking about" thread?

    Add ingredients in parallel with the eventual tubile direction that the burrito forms and you don't have the isolated layers problem. Mix it all in bowl? Never heard of it.

    doesn't sound like the burritos I get. I like my burritos made with care and finesse..
    *protip: when eating a messy burrito, place an empty tortilla underneath your burrito while you eat it. all the stuff that falls out of your burrito will land on the tortilla, then you roll it up and BAM! another burrito.. :)

    Me neither. Any Mexican that mixed it in a bowl in LA would be deported...to Ohio. ;)

    Truth. And Peteyvee, I'll give you Angelinos this. When it comes to Mexican food and, yes, weather, you guys kick the crap out of NYC.

    Yeah, but NYC kills us in museums, tap water, pizzas, cannolis and a dozen other cuisines I can think of...

    I'm confused by the OP's statement.

    Are we talking like Chipotle burritos? I love those things.

    Don't forget public transportation! But man, after this winter, I am ready to load up the truck and move to Beverly.

    You go through a line, you pick your food type (burrito, taco, bowl)....I picked burrito. Then you choose your meat, toppings, cheese, pico, etc......then you get to the cash register and the server takes "Bob the Tool" and mixes all of that stuff up and folds the burrito and serves it to you. It's nasty....

    My grandmother was like that, except she would only eat one thing at a time.

    We don't have a Chipotle here, so I don't know about their food. The one I went to was Pancheros. This from Wiki...." Bob the Tool was first introduced in restaurants in 2007. Bob became a celebrated part of the Pancheros experience, mixing burritos before rolling them and allowing for each ingredient to be evenly distributed across the burrito."
