Fresh-Mex Restaurant Chains Get Grilled:
Football-Sized Burritos at Fast-Food Mexican Restaurants Pack Caloric Punch.Yikes, football sized burritos! Don't tell Nao Bustamante or she'll strain something strapping one on!
With slogans that tout how their oversized burritos are so big that they beep when they back up, perhaps the popular "fresh-Mex" fast-food chains should have seen the food police salivating.Just like death and taxes, the whiners always show up when it looks like someone might possibly be having fun.
