Burritos and Tacos are Everywhere and I Love It

What did we do five years ago when there wasn't a burrito place on every corner? We must have been hungry and we didn't even realize how pathetic our lives were. Much like back when we would go shopping without a cup of coffee in our hands, could you imagine doing that today? Never. Good advertising and marketing told us that we must have a coffee at all times and that burritos are a must on the menu at least once a week.  

Getting a bit off topic here but really, we are like lemmings.  When I was a kid, you went to Dunkin Donuts for...... donuts and there was one in town.  Now there are four, and we thank the holy cocca bean for that because if I have to go more than 25 minutes without coffee, we have a problem. Back to topic at hand - burritos.

You can grab a burrito just about anywhere these days (as stated above) and the national chains have popped up all over the place, I was on a Moe's kick for a while but I have rediscovered Chipolte. There is another chain that you might have overlooked - Hot Harry's, located in the Hannaford Plaza in East Greenbush. I stopped by the other day and was enticed to call an audible - I went with the bacon cheeseburger burrito. How can you combine two great things and not have it turn out well?. It was good, though I did wish I had gone along with the old reliable, chicken burrito. There is just something weird about eating bacon in a burrito. I love bacon, but I believe it does not belong in a burrito.

All-in-all a solid meal, not too expensive and much better than the last time I went there. I will give Hot Harry's another try but I'll leave the bacon to my burgers and potatoes and salads and peanut butter sandwiches and....


  1. There's one in Newton Plaza in Loudonville as well. I'm not sure how I haven't ended up there yet, since I am equally as obsessed with burritos as you are. I had no idea they have a cheeseburger burrito. Take a wild guess at the next place I'll be going out to eat...

  2. We in Troy were blessed with a local entity called BAD ASS BURRITO which was located on Fifth Avenue in the Burgh. It would probably still be there if not for the outlandish prices and bad attitude of the owner and hiz "cling on's". Just goes to show you that even when you think your crap doesn't stink, your farts will give you away.
