Nice try, crazy chicken

I am on to you, El Pollo Loco.

Ever since your bean, rice and cheese burrito moved to the $1 "value menu," it's been getting smaller and smaller. You tried to be clever, shrinking it in subtle, almost imperceptible increments so I wouldn't notice, but I did. When I took my lunchtime burrito out of its bag just now, it was barely the size of a tamale. I know it's only a dollar, and I'm all for you making your margin, but come on. You can probably buy a pound of beans and rice for a dollar.

Very disappointed, El Pollo Loco. Very disappointed.

P.S. I hate the plastic bags. They make your already-not-very good fries all sweaty and gross. Go back to paper, please!
