It never fails I read a story like this and I think to myself "why is it that I never win the lottery?" It's a valid question with a valid answer. I seem to never play the lottery. I kick myself every time I see a big winner.
It's fair to say we are pretty much use to the things that make Amarillo, well ummm, Amarillo. We love some things. Other things we are not sure why Amarillo is this way. Either way when we have family and friends visit we need to warn them of a few things.
I can deal with a shortage of toilet paper that we saw early on. I can deal with no alcohol and even styrofoam. I am not ready to face the news I saw on Facebook yesterday. The possible shortage of Allsup's Burritos and Chimichangas.
This is something that dreams are made of. I promise you that. I am a big fan of Allsup's burritos from the time I was introduced to them as I was attending Canyon High School. You see kids the current junior high used to be my high school. As luck would have it there was an Allsup's behind the school.
I saw a post on Facebook stating that we would get Allsup's Burritos soon. Oh, how I love them. I grew up eating one of those gut bombs for lunch nearly almost every single day. I think that is why I am now immune to any kind of sickness.
There is an obvious disconnect between Texas and Florida. We don't ever throw Mexican food at someone else. Great Mexican food is never wasted in the Lone Star state. We enjoy our enchiladas. Flaunt our fajitas. Take up with our tacos.
I was having a conversation the other day about Allsup's Burritos. If you grew up in the surrounding Amarillo area (Amarillo doesn't have Allsup's, which makes me sad), then you probably grew up on the deliciousness of the Allsup's Burrito (and the chimi, but today we are focusing on the burrito).
