Food find: Chimichangas taste different here

The chimichanga was supposedly invented in Tucson. So recently when I was out on the town, I stopped into The Taco Shop Company in downtown Tucson. The shops are an Arizona chain.

The line was long, but moving fast. I got this combo platter, which was a huge chimichanga topped with sour cream and guacumole, rice and beans and a drink.

The rice and beans were super, I enjoyed them. The rise was not instant and the beans were a smooth texture with a smokey flavor. The chimichanga was crispy and hard to cut into. It was filled with refried beans and meat. The meat tasted a little bit like roast beef, which I wasn't really a fan of. I guess I should have asked for chicken instead.

I will continue on my quest for the best Mexican joint out here, because I feel like I popped into the Taco Bell of Arizona.
