If you are anything like me, Moe’s Southwest grill is a happy place. I have been going to Moe’s since I was a child. back then, EVERYTIME someone walked through the door, the employees were genuinely excited to see the customers and greeted them with a “WELCOME TO MOE’S!!”. Now it seems as if the food is getting fresher but the attitudes are spoiling. Back in the day, I used to order a “naked home wrecker” which is a healthier take on their classic burrito. The “naked home wrecker” is common now a days with all of these “gluten allergies”. People want their burritos in a bowl. not only is it tastier, it is healthier. Tortilla wraps are empty calories. you can load your burrito bowl up with good veggies! My favorite part about the “naked home wrecker” is the fact that guac is already included. Tonight, i decided to grab some Moe’s on the way home. whenever I walk into Moe’s and am not greeted by “WELCOME TO MOE’S” I am automatically offended. After being a loyal customer for well over a decade, I expect to be treated like royalty when entering this dining establishment. I quickly moved on from my anger with the lack of enthusiasm of my presence. Heading closer to the class shield, the lovely clerk gives me a blank stare. After a few seconds of awkward eye contact, I say “I will take a naked home wrecker”. To my dismay, she responds with “what did you just order”? um, I just ordered one of your staple menu items, lady. she continued to inform me they don’t offer “naked home wreckers” any more. The burrito bowl is in such high demand, they made a new menu section dedicated to burrito bowls. Well here I am taking a stand against the “burrito bowl menu” america. I refuse to call it anything other than a naked home wrecker. If the name isn’t punny enough, the flavor makes up for it.
Until tomorrow… cheers!
