A few years ago, Trav and I set out on a personal journey of discovery. Well, really, we just went around trying to find the best burrito.
We tried Moe’s (decent), Willy’s (good, better than Moe’s), Chilito’s (awful) and Chipotle (absolutely ballin’).
Our friend Chris always raved about Chipotle and we didn’t really understand his obsession until we tried it for ourselves. Over the last several years, we have formed a solid friendship with Chipotle. The workers at “our” Chipotle in Atlanta know what we order…if we change it up one day and stray from the norm, they always look a little surprised. We were on a first name basis with the last manager and one of the girls always notices when I change my hair. Obviously, we were a little sad to leave it behind.
Every now and then, I’d hear of the legendary Freebirds in Texas. I heard rumors of their massive size and I saw a picture of one when WAOF toured through Texas. WAOF’s temporary drummer from Texas, Derek, said Chipotle was good, but not even close to the greatness of Freebirds. I was looking forward to another burrito boxing match: Freebirds vs Chipotle.
We did it. We cheated on Chipotle and went to Freebirds the other night.
My conclusion: Freebirds can suck it. Chipotle, I’m forever your girl. Paula Abdul reference intended.
