McDonald’s Burritos and Fajitas..1991

From 1990 to 1993, I was employed by McDonald’s doing everything from working the grill to taking orders at the front counter. Sometimes, thanks to the internet, it reminds of things I completely forgot about, for example, the introduction of the Breakfast Burritos and the now long gone Chicken Fajita. For whatever reason, McDonald’s went into the burritos biz and despite the fact that the breakfast option may still be around, it just seemed strange. Anyway, I found this picture of a tray liner plugging the new items and it did take me back to 1991.

From what I remember, the breakfast burrito was pretty popular but the chicken fajita had a pretty quick death. And I had a major problem learning to wrap a burrito correctly. I hated making those things.  If I remember correctly, all the fajita option came in a little plastic bag that we would cut open and fry on the grill before dumping it into a tortilla shell. Oh man, I just found a commercial…

It seemed like everyone was pretty excited about these burritos things but, like I said, the fajita died off pretty quickly. I never even bothered to eat one of them. Makes me wish I did but that’s the way it goes…
