LOS ANGELES (KTLA) -

The world's first automated burrito vending machine is now up and running in West Hollywood.

The Burritobox has been installed at a 24-hour gas station at 8380 Santa Monica Blvd.

According to eater.com, "Customers select what kind of burrito they want, select additional toppings, and then the machine pops out a warm Evol brand pre-made burrito in flavors like free range chicken with beans and rice and uncured bacon with egg and cheese."

Each burrito costs $3 and takes 60 seconds to heat up.

While customers wait for the finished meal, the machine's screen plays a music video or a movie trailer to help pass the time.

The company has announced plans for a second kiosk to open at a 76 gas station in Century City on Jan. 18.
