I haven’t had a fried burrito in years. They can be so delicious. Does anyone know where I can get one in the Dallas area?

    Almost any Tex-Mex joint. You're looking for chimichanga on the menu.

        Gotta find an Allsup's C-store. They are the ultimate fried burrito for soaking up all the beer you've had on a road trippin' weekend to West Texas. Ok, they actually aren't all that great, but they do bring back memories.

          Amen on Allsups. The ultimate beer drinking food. Kinda like Krystal burgers. Neither have any redeeming qualities, but I can't pass them up.

              There was an Allsup's in the town I grew up in. Sadly, it has been shut down...

              Thanks for the information about Allsups. There are none in my area, but if I'm ever near one, I'll definitely get one.

              As for chimichangas, they might be fried, but with all the sauces piled on top they are soggy fried burritos. I want the kind you can pick up and walk or drive away with. No fork needed.

                I've seen them dry and with sauce, just depends on the place

                I have a good friend who is an Area Manager for Allsups. I'm not sure where you are KOF, but I know there should be a store opening near the Texas Motorspeedway. Other than that Sachse location the next closest one is to the West in Stephenville.

                While you try their "World Famous Beef and Bean Burritos" their Chuckwagon also has chimichangas too. I preferred those as they contained shredded meat and green chiles. Both are deliciously sinful. I'm also a huge fan of their "Kettle Wings." Yes fried chicken wings that either original, Spicy or BBQ seasoned. Not saucy and the quality of their wings has always been fantastic. Sounds crazy but I'm a huge fan!

                  There's an Allsups on 380 in Princeton. Not any closer than Sachse, but if yer up that way...

                  Ah yes, Allsups. I've be road-tripping for 40 years to west texas and stopping at Allsups along the way. Yes, the burrito's a so good, but soo bad. Also, no love for the Hot Link rolled up on a piece of white bread with mustard. Now, that's a culinary masterpiece.
