Worst Fritopie I've ever had

Postby CowboyP » Sat Sep 22, 2012 2:03 am

I'm ashamed to say the worst fritopie I've ever had was from Aquilla's C-stand. Small, stale fritos, lukewarm chili sauce with almost no meat, PBCP was lukewarm and watery. No onions or peppers. It was an absolute waste of $2.50.

Sounds like an obvious take-over opportunity to me.......

Sounds to me like you need to do something about it, being from Aquilla.
I've always been told if you don't like something...change it.

I've done my time in C-stands. Now I just rate the food and most importantly, watch the game.

Watching my boys beat the spread by 60+ was more than enjoyment, it was euphoric.

Sounds downright awful. Then again think if California ever embraced Frito pie.

Baked Frito chips made of spelt and kamut grains
Vegan chilli
Artisan cheese
Caramelized onions with a hint of balsamic
and a dash of jalapeno infused truffle oil

What you had sounds bad Cowboy... but it could be worse. ;)

You'd have to put some of topher's scorpions in it to make that mess barely edible.

Vegas - dinner reception in the Venetian at the Taqueria Canonita . The soup course had some fancy name but the taste was almost frito pie, just a little thin and no crunch, but the taste was ok. Knowing the price - stick to the real deal, way cheaper.

Dear Guru Sir. You do have a way of giggin a fella now and then. Only been there once. Maybe it's the reputation or atmosphere or just being on vacation but the chili itself tasted excellent to me. Will not miss it if I ever get back there.
Chunks of real tender (not ground) beef with no gristle or fat.
Need to look for a website. Know if they ship by the gallon say, FEDEX/UPS?
Will have to settle for Wolf Brand with added leftover steak tomorrow for now.

My daughter and several of her teammates had the frito pie after their Roundball game in Bluff Dale Monday. Puked all night Monday, part of Tuesday and treated at the dr today for dehydration and infection.
Moral: DO NOT EAT THE FRITO PIE IN BLUFF DALE..
