Villa Mexico already feeling the squeeze?

jgg13 | Jun 18, 2008 03:08 PM

Well, a few days now with lines out the door @ Annas and I noticed a new sign outside at the gas station. Perhaps its always been there and I just never notced, but it was a small ground standing sign mentioning the place w/ 2 extra notes hung on it - one saying that yes they were indeed in the store and the other noting that they were voted best burrito in boston.

Even though I've gone to Annas 2x now w/o having gone to Villa Mexico once in that period, I really hope that VM doesn't suffer. I suspect they won't, as they *never* had the sort of crowd that Annas is pulling in and I'm guessing that a lot of these people never went to VM in the first place. We shall see though.

I did find it amusing today though when the line was out the door but people were getting through the line and receiving their food faster than one would at VM if you were the only person there. That's the assembly line vs. made w/ love effect I suppose.
