So that was weird and i didn't want the meat I just wanted to visualize it first and then choose. So after the other toppings were added, the cashier rang up my order it came out to almost $18! So I asked to speak to the manager so he comes up and I ask him why is it so expensive he said because the asada meat and I said well I didn't actually even want it (I usually get a veggie bowl but i wanted to try the chicken or asada since i saw the limited time sign) so he said okay ill just charge you for a chicken bowl. So I said ok. I went home right after (so hungry because I havnt eaten anything today) but some cereal for breakfast. I opened it and the meat was soo cold! It have me weird vibes so I removed it all and my husband tried a peice and said "yeah I wouldn't eat that" I ate the salad but removed the meat.. I did try a few pieces and took pictures before I ate it just in case! And guess what it's midnight rn and I am sh*tting my life out! I have horrible stomach cramps and abdominal pain!!
