Back when I lived in the Midwest, I had never had an Allsup's burrito, but was fascinated by all the chaser jokes about them. So of course when we retired to the Southwest, one of the first things I had to try was an Allsup's burrito. Instantly hooked on them, and 10 years later I am still alive and kicking at 70, so how bad for you can they really be? This new outfit had better not mess with my burritos, LOL!
