who cares?

their burrittos are mighty tasty, and to add to that, i once got picked up by a cashier at the b'ville on columbus ave (baby liked my lycra clad 'back'), and they almost sponsored my team (back in the mid 90s). needless to say, i like 'em.

at the very least, it will help keep out the mind control rays.

On Topic, I think that this problem is prevalent in the mexican food arena. The wife went to Taco Cabana the other night, and I could not believe the mountain of trash left over by a three taco combo.

Not to mention increased methane output into the atmosphere courtesy of de beans.
