This Monstrous Burrito Is Stuffed With Taquitos And Wrapped In A Footlong Quesadilla


You can always measure a good burrito by how sleepy you get immediately after. So imagine how badly we caught a food coma from this footlong monster known as the TGunz Burrito.

On a recent venture to Huntington Beach, CA, fellow Foodbeasts Reach, Brayden and myself decided to grab a quick bite at Lupe’s Taco Shop. Brayden, who lived a few streets down the road, frequented the taqueria and didn’t think we could handle an entire TGunz burrito split between the two of us.

He was right.

The massive TGunz featured carne asada, guacamole, fries, taquitos, and is wrapped in a 12-inch quesadilla. We’re not exaggerating when we say it’s the size of your forearm.


“It’s like every type of Mexican food, all rolled into one gnarly monster.”


“It was like one big stoner foods orgy… or a Mexican stand off scene in food form.”

Reach was able to finish his half of the burrito through valiant effort, but I only completed half of my half. We for sure had to hit the Starbucks next door before going back to work. Not that any kind of caffeine kept us from nodding off into that aforementioned food coma the size of this burrito.

Lawsuit Forces Subway To Give You 12 Inches…Of Sandwich


National sandwich chain Subway has seen some heat from consumers after certain foot longs measured in at about 11 inches. Thanks to a judge’s ruling, sandwiches will be required by law to be 12 inches. Y’know, the way they’re advertised.

The Associated Press reports that a judge approved the settlement of a class-action suit against the sandwich chain.

A couple years prior, a photo was posted on Facebook showing a sandwich measuring at 11 inches. This prompted an investigation that showed four out of every seven sandwiches tested in New York came in about an inch or half an inch shy of a foot long.

Subway is now required, as part of the settlement, to make sure that its sandwiches are at least 12 inches long for the next four years.

The sandwich company said, however, that the frozen dough sticks that comes into the store all weigh the same. It’s when they’re stretched and baked in the oven is when they begin to vary in lengths and sizes.

Sonic Aims for Hearts with Quarter Pound Cheesy Bacon Footlong


Sonic has added yet another hot dog to their menu. The fast food chain, specializing in drive-in dining, has developed a new hot dog aimed for both bacon and cheese lovers. It’s not too hard to guess what they’re calling it.

The Cheesy Bacon Footlong is made with a quarter pound foot-long hot dog. It’s topped with a cheddar cheese sauce and, of course, chunks of bacon. While a cheese-covered foot-long might not be the easiest thing to handle in a vehicle, it shouldn’t deter the fast food-inclined.

If anyone’s looking for a Lady and the Tramp option for this generation of fast food-loving bacon eaters, this could be the perfect candidate. You’re eating in the car with a date, who cares how cheesy it’ll look. No pun intended.

Sonic patrons can find the Cheesy Bacon Footlong at all participating Sonic locations. At $3.99, the hot dog is served as a combo with tots, the potato kind, of course.


Subway Addresses $5 Footlong Controversy in this Hilariously Fake Onion Report


Turns out anyone trying to get healthy off Subway sandwiches was doing it wrong this entire time. The Onion fictitiously reports that Subway executives meant for the popular $5 footlong special to be split among two people. In fact, they’re in downright disbelief that anyone can tackle a footlong sub all on their own. Who does that, right?

The sandwich chain states that they’re “deeply sorry” if customers were led to believe eating an entire 12-inch sandwich was healthy for them. It was never meant to. In response to angry patrons, Subway modified their marketing strategy, clearing up any misconceptions that a footlong was meant for a single person in one sitting.

Check out the hilarious piece of satire below and you’ll never eat a $5 footlong again. No, you probably will.

Subway Canada Gets Crackin’ With Atlantic Canada Lobster Sub


Summer is starting to heat up and seafood is on the menu, at least at Subway Canada. While Subways here in the U.S. only offer tuna or an under the sea hodge podge called “Seafood Sensation” (which might also be a flavor of cat food), Subway Canada is debuting a lobster sandwich. Boasting Atlantic Canada Lobster chunks mixed with mayo, the sandwich can be customized to a customer’s individual tastes, but for ultimate maritime deliciousness Subway recommends patrons go simple with toasted Italian bread and lettuce.

The Atlantic Canada Lobster sub is only available for a limited time. No word on if Subway plans to bring lobster to U.S. locations, but the chain was testing Kung Pao Pulled Pork in Chicago back in April.

Here’s a 12 Minute Mortal Kombat Cover of Subway’s ‘$5 Footlong’ Song


The Mortal Komband is a Georgia-based pack of miscreants who decided to make a 12-minute Subway $5 Footlong music video while wearing Mortal Kombat costumes. Not well, mind you, but with respectable vigor. The video pays an awfully discordant homage to everyone’s favorite smelly sandwich chain and features cameos by Jax, Mileena, Sonia Blade, and Jonny Cage — as well as a few game tie-ins like a tubby Jonny throwing photos of himself and lead singer Sub-Zero holding up a frozen sub.

Unless you’re a hardcore MK fan, high, or deaf, you can probably watch less than a minute of this thing, then be on your merry way. Everyone else, well, more power to you.

Spice up Your Footlong With Jalapeño Cheddar Bread


Subway is spicing up their menu once again, this time with their new Jalapeño Cheddar Bread. After debuting their Fiery Footlong Collection in November the chain is taking the next logical step and adding jalapeño ridden rolls to the menu. For an extra hot lunch why not pair your Jalapeño Cheddar Bread with some creamy Sriracha sauce? Although the bread will only be available for a limited time Subway R&D Baking Specialist Mark Christiano says the bread “has the potential to be added to the permanent menu”

The addition of the new bread coincides with Subway’s “Janu-ANY” promotion which comes a month early in 2014. Any regular footlong will be $5 for the entire month.

Subway’s Featured $5 Footlong for December: Chipotle Cheddar Chicken


Question: does anyone actually choose their Subway sub based on whatever the featured footlong is, or will you have your Meatball Marinara with Swiss on wheat regardless of the discount, income and salt intake be damned?

This month’s featured sandwich is the Chipotle Cheddar Chicken, which is exactly what it sounds like: grilled chicken, melted cheese and the chain’s Chipotle Southwest sauce. Toss with red onions and bell peppers on toasted flatbread to make everything extra cowboy.

You can also grab the Cold Cut Combo or Meatball Marinara for $2 throughout December for Customer Appreciation Month.
