Ask Not for Whom the Hot-Dog-and-Frito-Stuffed Burrito Tolls

...it tolls for thee, fair reader.

For the low, low sum of $5.95, you can consume what is -- by far -- the most over-the-top concoction I've seen come out of a Houston restaurant outside of Rodeo season. And that's not meant in the pejorative. I'm fairly in awe of the burrito you see above, which is on the menu right now at Gordon Street Tavern in Alvin.

Says the restaurant on its Facebook page:

Ready for a mouth watering HOT DOG BURRITO? 2 beef hot dogs, chilli, colby jack, sour cream, fritos and grilled onions all stuffed into a 12" tortilla and rolled up for only $5.95. WOW that really is a mouth full.

I'm not going to lie. I want to eat this. I want to have it inside of me. But the combination of a rough weekend and a full week ahead means that I likely won't be able to make it down to Alvin any time soon. So I'm depending on you, readers.

I ate the Belgian waffle topped with whipped cream, bacon and two Shipley's glazed donuts at Shepherd Park Draught House for you. Eating one of these majestic burritos and reporting back is the least you can do for me.

(And don't forget the Santo beer.)
