Villa's, Home of the "Super" Burrito
4127 15 Mile Road in Sterling Heights, claims the
distinction of being voted “Macomb County’s Best
Mexican restaurant”. In
its advertising it also mentions “Home of the Flaming
Fajitas”, “Mariachi band
every Friday night“, and “Eat all our super burrito
and it’s free”. Wow.
That’s a lot to go on. So we head down there to see what
the fuss is
Mariachi band? It appears that they play every other Friday
and we have missed them. We start out with an appetizer of Mexican
$6.95, sans the chorizo, which comes with chips and burritos,
but it’s a
bit lumpy. Perhaps they just didn’t nuke it long enough.
We ask them to cook
it a bit more and they do so, but it is still not quite right.
Goldilocks. We concede and glop it on with spoons. It’s

When dining in Mexican
restaurants, I always like to try their specialty,
so it’s time to attempt that super burrito. We are given
the option of
ground beef, shredded beef, or chicken; we choose the ground

results. Obviously the deal here is that you order this Mexican
$14.95 and if you can eat it all in one sitting, you don’t
pay. So while
those around you wonder why you are pigging out, you can smile
back at them so that they will know that greed and carbs are
There are three of
us dining tonight. One of my companions tells us he has
attempted this feat, and while he can certainly put down a lot
after he had finished he still had two take-out boxfuls left.
So we ask if
the three of us can share the burrito. There is no problem,
aside from the
fact that there will be an extra charge and we don’t qualify
freebie. So it goes.
This burrito is certainly
enormous. I would hazard a guess it is somewhere
between 2 and 3 pounds. Covered in melted cheese and adorned
tomatoes, and onions, I let my male buddies go for it so I can
why it is so huge. There is lots of beef in there, but there
and an amazing amount of rice as filler. This is a heart attack
I try to just go
for a bit more of the beef and lettuce. I always order
hottest salsa in Mexican restaurants; this is homemade but only
spicy. The plate empties, but I am thinking I should have opted
fajitas. At least then I would know ahead of time just how much
rice I had

days a week, and always seem to have coupons readily available
