How did you befriend them in the first place then?

I got a $30 chipotle gift card for christmas and used it for the third time today.

There was $.87 left on the card so I try to give it to the next guy in line--I say "here man, do you want this? It's got 87cents left on it" and he says no. wtf? Who turns down free money to a place when they are currently standing in line and about to pay?

I was like "ah..ok?" and the girl behind the counter gave a really weird look. Because of the holiday, the place was pretty empty and there was nobody else in line to try and give it to...so now I am stuck carrying around an 87cent gift card.

^awesome salads

I was in the suburbs today and saw one of those starbucks with a drive through.... it had a long assed line though.


I don't get why you would wait more than 15min in line at a StarBucks drive through line. why not just walk straight in - where I saw no one waiting and order. Hell you could sit down and take a couple sips and even go to the bathroom and take the after coffee shit and be out there in about the same time.

I get this.

So many people these days have these little gimmicks to get you to talk to them, and then it turns out there's some kind of angle to what they're doing. "Hey man, do you have change for a 5?" "Hey dude, can I ask you a question?" In the approximately one second the guy had to think about this, some stranger offering him a card (he may not even have realized in that second or digested what you were trying to say to him) the safe answer typically is just a "uh, no thanks. not interested."

I'd rather do drive thru at starbucks and listen to motorhead in my ipod than walk in. more than likely if I have to get something there I'm in front of some dumb bitch who doesn't have the mental capacity to decide what to order while waiting in line and then takes fucking five to ten minutes looking at the board when she gets to the cash register. and then after paying for everything would suddenly ask for an extra heap of whipped cream on everything. plus would then ask her companion or boyfriend or whatever across the place if he/she wants whipped cream on their strawberry mocha tsai latte frap with non-fat soy fuckdrink - in venti.

You people on the east coast will never know how much better burritos can be than what's on offer at Chipotle. I don't know if I should pity you or not.

Agreed - I'm in Florida, so I can say pretty much the same thing about Carribean food (Cuban, PR, etc.) to the rest of the country.

Quick story - when I was about 5 I spent a couple of summers with my step-grandparents who lived in El Paso Texas. I loved "mexican" and tex-mex, but as a New England'er I certainly wasn't getting authentic. While in El Paso, we did a lot of trips hopping the border back and forth with Mexico. One time, my grandmother stopped at an out-of-the way kind of strip mall, maybe more like a flea market. The "stores" had heavy fabric curtain hanging at the front that you parted to go inside and the floor was packed dirt. We went in one where there were card tables and folding chairs and, in the back, was a big grill with people working it. Essentially the most rickety, sketchy of "restaurants" you could imagine (form a snotty kid gringo's perspective). My grandmother ordered a plate of tamales for us and ,I swear, I can still smell/taste them to this day. The husks, the corn, the filling was fantastic.

Anytime I get a tamale, I am instantly transported back 40 years to that meal and it's never as good as it was then. I'm sure it's part nostalgia, but I'm also convinced it's partially because it was that freaking good.

So I've at least got a sense of what you mean smile.gif

Honestly the best burritos are in California, but we have some really good places in Texas.

The worst situation is cajun and creole food outside of Louisiana. Not saying you can't find decent places, especially in SE Texas, but it's really, really hard.

So funny you should say that, here in Orlando in our "Little Vietnam" area (no joke, not kidding - at Mills & 50!) there's a really, really good Cajun place named "King Cajun Crawfish" owned and run by a vietnamese family. Essentially, they wanted to start a restaurant in the area, but didn't want to do another vietnamese one (we've got plenty!). A member of the family loved cajun food and, well, there you go.

I've been to LA a bit and love the real stuff - our little local vietnamese cajun place is 90%+. Who'da thunk it?

There is actually a very large vietnamese population down in coastal Louisiana, and normal vietnamese food is used to being french-influenced, so I am not surprised at all.
