If I stand in line for a Grilled Stuft Burrito, I am indeed a jerk! This bland entry, even with chicken included, is as disappointing as my date with Elsa Benitez. The burrito in its paper wrap seemed curiously solid, and in fact opening the wrapper revealed a burrito as inflexible as any directly removed from the freezer at the supermarket. The burrito does indeed appear to have been grilled, as evidenced by more-than-golden-brown bars on the sides of the rectangular-prism, as if it had been placed on the grill, and had had the complete works of Poe placed on it to ensure a nice flat shape and dark grill marks.
Lest one worry that the grill marks are only a visual gimmick, rest assured that they are indeed legitimate, and have a fairly unappealing scorched-tortilla taste which reminds one why one does not normally feel the need to char a burrito to a dark brown. The taste overpowers the entire burrito, and only a decent drenching in hot sauce (three packets for a single burrito is about average) can even begin to redeem the Grild Stuft Burrito.
