Taco Bell review

There weren’t enough ordering kiosks, I had to wait in line.

The menu is very confusing. I just ordered four crunchy tacos because I didn’t know what else to get, and I think the crunchy taco is their signature dish that they are most well known for.

Order took about two minutes to prepare. Ideally, it could have been faster, but they looked pretty busy.

They have packets of four different “hot” sauces. The sauce labeled “hot” wasn’t very hot at all. The “fire” sauce was a little bit more like hot sauce.

Value? At $6.06 including tax, the meal was half the price of a typical Manhattan take-out lunch. So the value is there. (But for four more dollars I could have bought a more filling chicken burrito with better ingredients from Dos Toros.)

Quality of the tacos? Pretty crappy compared to Los Tacos No. 1. And the tacos leave an unpleasant aftertaste in the mouth. It is sad that once upon a time, I ate these Taco Bell tacos without knowing any better.

Conclusion? I don’t see myself going back so long as I can afford better.

  1. Was the clientele at Taco Bell exceedingly prole or a mix of upscale and downmarket? Were you the only well-off customer there?

    • ” a mix of upscale and downmarket?”

      That. Taco Bell tried to make it a more upscale location, but it still serves the same crappy food they serve at the more downscale locations.

      • I can think of no corporate foodie chain that is upscale besides Sucking n Shacking for burgers/shakes and E-Coli-potle for Mexican food.

        Ok, what, who's this again?

  2. You have to get the Diablo sauce and one of the rotating special items, like Nacho Fries or that taco made of chicken. The regular stuff is mostly cheao calories.

    • What’s that guy’s deal? I don’t see the appeal. He’s popular.

      • He’s unique in a good way. Has a certain presence that makes young people nostalgic for the past. Many appreciate the courage it takes to be yourself when you’re that out of norm. He also doesn’t swear which I find refreshing.

  5. Taco Bell and Del Taco are DOGSHIT. Very confusing menus and if you order anything more elaborate than their basic 99 cent taco you are asking to feel sick.

    I get my tacos from Jack in the Crack (2 for 99 cents) or El Pollo Loco.

    • Fresca steak burrito is great and only 350 calories. Not stuffed with rice like Chipotle ones so you can actually taste the meat and beans

      • I don’t understand why everyone has such a boner for Chipotle. Their stuff is barely mediocre.

  7. Taco Bell serves petrochemical sludge meat thickened with synthetic gums proven to cause cancer in lab animals over and over again.

    Last I looked McDonalds is literally the only fast food joint you can get non-toxic fast food, and there you’re limited to the burgers, OJ, and McCafe products.

    Look, I smoke between three and a twenty cigarettes a week and drink too much. But you can’t look into the food supply issue and not seriously freak out. We are seeing endlessly escalating chronic disease problems in the population that have no other explanation than the crappy food supply. You can directly compare to countries like Italy that have taken opposite policies and are not seeing the same problems.

    Do not eat shit like taco bell, and the quality of the food supply needs to be a major political issue. It’s not presently OK. We basically need to hire some Italians and do what they tell us.

    • “We are seeing endlessly escalating chronic disease problems in the population that have no other explanation than the crappy food supply. ”

      Explanation: when REAL diseases are cured, people worry about minor problems they used to ignore in a world filled with polio and small pox.

      • Incorrect. Polio is not gone. They redefined it away. It’s now being called a paralytic syndrome. It has showed up multiple times as “an epidemic” in the last year on if you pay attention. They redefined polio out of existence 50 years ago and pronounced it cured.

        Look, broheem, go scope out some high schoolers from the hinterlands on a museum tour. Go look at them. They’re not well. When I was young the chubby weirdo with bad skin was an object of ridicule but that’s now over a third of them. Something is obviously wrong. They’re mostly fat. In my own extended family I hear about the weird allergies and the cancers and lupus and asthma. There is absolutely no fucking way everything is fine. There are serious environmental and food issues that are compromising the future of the nation. Hell, I see many kids wearing glasses barely anyone I know my age wears glasses.

      • Fuck, why do I know via coworkers four special education teachers? Is your baseline really that a tenth of kids were retarded? Because that’s obviously wrong to me. But that’s what’s panning out.

  8. I had a multigtain bagel with scalion cream chase in a SWPL place in Queens for around $8.00. Was totally worth it. Lion, with your income you should be only eating the best, but you keep eating garbage and blogging about it. Why?


    January 9, 2019 at 11:37 PM

    • Because that would be boring.

      • In my son-in-law’s restaurant 3 tacos with ground beef cost around $12.00 and there is nothing boring about it. The infuriating thing about it though is that every time I order people just take two ‘to taste’ (sic!) leaving me with one! Why don’t they just order their own tacos? What’s one taco? What do they think that I ordered 3 to eat 1? Next time I’m not gonna touch it! Let them have all 3 and then I’m ordering another 3 for myself.


        January 9, 2019 at 11:58 PM

      • Go back and get a chicken soft taco and a bean burrito add guacamole. Thank me later.
