Arkansas Restaurant Home of the Huge 7-Pound Burrito Challenge
If you are looking for a road trip in Arkansas that will be a challenge and I'm not talking about the challenge to get there, it's about the challenge of eating a 7-pound burrito.
The place is Bocadillos Tacos and Ice Cream in Dardanelle, Arkansas where people come from all over the country to see if they can tackle eating the monstrous 2 feet long, 7-pound Mexican burrito that weighs between 6 to 7 pounds.
The burrito even has a name, The Cheatmeal Burrito can be stuffed with any meat you choose and it also includes a ton of refried beans, lots of shredded cheese, rice, and veggies which is probably the only thing healthy wrapped in a humongous flour tortilla.
Depending on what meat you choose the price of the burrito is $59.99 but the catch is you have a limited time to down it, 45 minutes. If you succeed you receive the burrito meal free, a cool t-shirt, and are added to the Wall of Fame. You will then be rolled out in a wheelbarrow and sent home with a case of Tums. Just kidding about the last part but I could only imagine what you would feel like because that has to have a ton of calories but it sure looks good.
Since this challenge has begun at the restaurant only about half a dozen people out of 60 people have been able to do it thus far. They will even Facebook your feat and eat live if you want, according to Fun in Arkansas.
Are you up for the challenge?
New Automated McDonalds in Ft Worth, Texas Gallery:
The fact is, this McDonalds is not "fully automated", they have a smaller staff working in the kitchen filling the orders, but the counter-person, all-to-often found with a bad attitude, has been eliminated in this dining concept. This new McDonalds is much smaller and has no seating for indoor dining. This is a take-out-only concept with all staff concentrating on getting the orders right. Will it work? We'll see.
