Hurricanes is a surprisingly good find. You’d never know by looking at it, but the eats served here are inexpensive and delish! They offer typical burger and fries fare, along with Mexican specialties, dinner plates, and breakfast foods.
The real draw here is the huge breakfast burritos. You can get them in four sizes: eight, quarter, half, and whole. The whole burrito is enough for three people; it’s HUGE! These special burritos are called Disaster Burritos and are stuffed with ground beef, beans, eggs, and cheese, topped with curly fries and then smothered in green or red chili and more cheese. Then it’s topped with lettuce and tomatoes. What a treat! There’s just something about the curly fries that gives these burritos that extra oomph! Try it. I know it sounds weird, but man is it good! You won’t walk away hungry. Guaranteed! The beef enchiladas are pretty good, too, and the signature burgers are wonderful. Try the Cyclone burger topped with green chili and cheese. Get a large drink and don’t be surprised if it doesn’t fit in you car's cup holder; as with everything else here, the large drink is HUGE!
Hurricanes is another one of my favorite dives, and for good reason. The food is good, the prices are great, and the portions are big. Hurricanes is located on Lomas, just west of Monroe and east of Carlisle.
