Are tacos and burritos sandwiches? A judge in Indiana thinks so. The ruling stems from a legal battle that started in 2022, when Martin Quintana, a developer, unveiled plans to open his restaurant, "The Famous Taco Mexican Grill," on a strip mall in Fort Wayne, Indiana.

More: The Allen County Planning Commission rejected his bid to open the eatery, citing a written commitment that Quintana had accepted. According to the agreement with a local condo association, only alcohol-free restaurants that did not allow outdoor seating and only sold "made-to-order or subway-style sandwiches" were allowed to open at the location.

The agreement was put in place to keep some national fast-food chains from opening at the strip mall, according to court documents obtained by NBC affiliate WPTA.

In his opinion, Bobay ruled that "Famous Taco restaurant is permissible under the terms of the original Written Commitment," and agreeing with Quintana "that tacos and burritos are Mexican style sandwiches, and the original Written Commitment does not restrict potential restaurants to only American cuisine-style sandwiches."

Bobay said the commission can appeal the ruling.

I'm just glad they didn't call them "Handhelds."

FTA: That's because its bread has too much sugar, the court said Tuesday. The country's Value-Added Tax Act of 1972 says tax-exempt bread can't have sugar, fat and bread improver exceed 2% of the weight of flour.

I don't know why this article triggered my memory of Subway bread being ruled cake in Ireland.

"Neil deGrasse Tyson says yes."

Tyson is little more than a celebrity troll.

I see how how a taco or burrito could be called a mexican style sandwich... but how does that make a taco or burrito a Subway style sandwich? That part does not make sense.

A burrito is a wrap.
A hot dog is a taco.

A burrito is a burrito.

A wrap is something Millennial dopes invented because they can't make burritos.
