Wraps: Great & Mega

Wrap sandwiches originated in Calif in the 80s and seemed for-sure to go big nationally. Some chains formed, and yes WF & Subway do wraps but jeez (insert cricket sounds here)... 20 yrs later, 2 wrap chains are hitting DFW as we type: Mega Wraps, birthed in Canada (uh-oh! ha), and Great Wraps, an Atlanta co. steered by 2 Coke execs (double uh-oh). Both try to counteract typecasting by also-serving soupsaladsmoothies even samwiches on ohso-trendy ciabatta. The sales pitch on wraps = healthy and yet these wrapsters are all ++ on "philly cheezsteaks" too which doesn’t seem very wrappy...

Mega Wraps: legacy park, plano 972-473-3514, advancial tower, 1845 woodall rogers 214-661-7835, and coming soon to 3100 independence pkwy, plano
Great Wraps: coming soon to an undisclosed location in garland (helloo, can you say "unhelpful corp communications"?)

DO THEY HAVE SQUIRREL WRAPS? OR LOCALLY GROWN, ORGANIC CAT-SHIT WRAPS? WE'RE VERY UP ON THAT HERE ON THE WEST COAST.

I WASN'T QUESTIONING THE QUESTION. I JUST CANT TELL THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HIS FACE AND HIS ASS.

" NOT NAMED AFTER LYNYRD SKYNYRD SONGS!!! "

Therefore not as good.

And don't these wraps tend to be thicker than tortillas and not filled with Mexican-y things?

Speaking of burritos, here's how I've wrapped mine. Nothing's too good for Tom's filling.

The Captain is mangnaminously trying to answer this question with a straight face. It must be his Southern politeness. Which we could use a little more of!

I see that Mega uses pita.

So, they look just like another Extreme Pita from Canada to me, only 6 months behind the competition curve here. And trust me, I know Canadian dough...

Hey Dog Breath... lots of organic cat-shit at our house, and I'll supply the pita from Shine -- best stuff around!

SOUTHERN POLITENESS IS JUST A TOOL TO STORE UP A BUNCH OF RAGE AND EVENTUALLY FATALLY BITE SOMEBODY.

To hell with southern politeness and healthy food! I just had my first In-N-Out burger last week in LA. Great stuff, freshly made, never frozen, and fresh-cut fries to boot. A double-double... 2 patties, 2 cheese.

Well, some idiot just blogged his 100x100.

OUCH!

I bet Dean gets that question a lot.

Let's give him the opportunity to answer.

PUNXSUTAWNEY, Pa. - Punxsutawney Phil failed to make an appearance today, as he and several other groundhogs were trapped in a mine slide deep underground.
