Death by Food: Longboards Chuck Norris

I'll just go ahead and declare myself a whore for Longboards. It's been one of the few perks of having a job north of the river. The specialize mostly in California wraps, which basically seem to be Asian themed Chipotle-ish burritos. I usually either go for the Pork Luaua if I want something sweet or the Wow! Kung Pao for a kick of heat. That was until I discovered the Cabo Dog aka Chuck Norris...

Please forgive the crappy camera phone picture

When I had this the first time a few months back, it was called the Cabo Dog. Then they ran out of hot dogs. When I went in today, I saw it on the special menu re-branded as the Chuck Norris. Not only is the new name epic, you can choose to either go with the Ranger Chuck (chipotle ranch) or Delta Force (barbecue sauce). From what I remember, the Chuck Norris includes: a whole hot dog, chili, Fritos, rice, guac, jalapenos and I want to say there is some salsa, cheese and sour cream in there as well. Basically, it's all my culinary dreams wrapped into a tortilla and grilled on a panani machine.

Ballpark, I would say it is about 9 to 10" long. Cutting it in half still constitues more than you should eat in one meal. It's a beast. A delicious, spicy, Frito-pie-filled, encased meat beast of a wrap. If I went on dates with food, Chuck Norris would get to home plate on the first. The name of this wrap is pretty fitting, because I'm not sure who is going to be able to kick Chuck Norris's ass for the top spot in KC foods that will kill you.

I honestly never thought I would admit this, but I think that this combination might actually seriously kill me. Sounds so good I can hear myself getting fatter just looking at the picture.

I can think of one contender, but sadly you are unwilling to try it.

DLC, you are neglecting the fact that in order to get high on the list, the item would actually have to taste good.

Name one other Death by Food item that actually tasted good.

I'm not saying it wouldn't make the list at this initial stage. I just don't see the staying power. Especially in my stomach.

I love Longboards! My sister lives up north, and they eat there all the time. Whenever we go up to have dinner with them, it is always our first suggestion. Definitely will have to try the Chuck Norris!

Looks like a dogshit panini. Maybe it takes good, but it doesn't look good.

Awesome!!!!! It's different in the sense that just about anyone can learn how to longboard much faster than they could learn how to skateboard. The bad news is that it can take quite a while before you are longboarding at the same level as the pros, but this is the same as most pursuits. It will require hard work, but here are some great tips to get you started.

At the starting point of longboarding you must follow some basic tips which help to get more stability on your board. I love Longboarding as I like speed riding so I used to go out for downhill adventure. All the time it's not so easy but little difficult and more important thing for speed seeking rider to wear safety gear before ride on.
