$11 for a Five-Pound Burritozilla ($21 Value)
The 18-inch super burrito serves up to five diners or one diner with up to five stomachs. A bounty of rice, choice of beans, cheese, guacamole, sour cream, and salsa surrounds your choice of meat, such as marinated Angus carne asada, tomatillo-braised chile verde, or shredded chicken in chipotle sauce.
It's been featured on the Travel Channel. It's 18 inches long—longer than most human newborns. It weighs in at a little more than five pounds. It's a burrito.
This monster, which goes by the name Burritozilla, is the signature dish at Iguanas. Chefs fill every square inch of the three tortillas required to contain it with hearty scoops of meat, salsa, sour cream, cheese, rice. beans, and guacamole. Many have stepped up to conquer the dish, from terrified local university students to Man v. Food's Adam Richman. But, with the understanding that not everyone would be able to defeat this oversized burrito, the Iguanas menu also holds creative interpretations of more manageably portioned Mexican classics.
Seven hand-trimmed meats—including grilled Angus-beef carne asada, tomatillo-braised pork, shredded chicken in spicy chipotle sauce, and carnitas—stuff tacos, tortas, and quesadillas. They also lounge atop nachos and even nacho fries. All this cheesy, juicy decadence aside, Iguanas’ menu is also big enough to include light, crisp taco salads and bitsy Baby Burritos and Tiny Tacos, the perfect size for kids or anyone who wants to make the Burritozilla look that much bigger.
