The TGUNZ burrito though!
By Asma Mohammed
Everyone has trouble picking just one thing off of a menu. Fortunately, Lupe's Taco Shop in Huntington Beach has thought of the perfect solution.
Introducing the Tgunz Burrito: a massive California burrito stuffed with some of the best carne asada you will ever taste, as well as guacamole, and a taquito! And if that isn't enough, the whole thing is wrapped in a quesadilla. The whole burrito is the size of your forearm and is perfect for anyone who loves Mexican food and is indecisive.
They also have a few other options for those who want to spice things up a little, such as a Flamin' Hot Cheetos Burrito filled with carne asada, guacamole, sour cream, cheese, and of course, Hot Cheetos. And perhaps what they are most known for, the Monster Burrito. The Monster comes with fries and is filled with your choice of meat, beans, guacamole, sour cream, lettuce, cheese, and fresh made pico de gallo wrapped in a double tortilla.
This burrito is no different from your average burrito apart from the fact that it is literally twice the size of any other burrito they make! That's right, twice the size of your forearm!
Lupe's Taco Shop is some of the most quality Mexican food on this side of the border and affordable enough to come back every week and try a new burrito! They have shops in Huntington Beach as well as San Diego. Those are just three burritos off of their signature burrito menu, but don't imagine what the rest of them are like, you have to try them for yourself!
