I guess if you're desperate or drunk enough to go to Taco Bell you might as well go all in.

I haven't willingly eaten Taco Bell in years. Way too many good Mexican options in the area. My wife has the occasional craving but I'm pretty good at talking her out of it.

Taco Bell is ass. It just goes to show that most of America is obese and/or stoned.

I have to admit, I love Taco Bell. It doesn't love me, though. I always get so sick when I have it.

Anyway, Toledo is a big testing market for products like this, so I tried Doritos Locos Tacos a long time ago. I don't see what all the fuss is about. They don't taste that different, and you end up with orange fingers.

Taco Bell isn't meant to compete with sit-down restaurants. Let me know when there's a better taco joint with a drive through that can have me out of there with food in hand in 2 minutes. Especially if they have a drink that mixes better with rum than the limeade sparkler. Oh dear god do I love my rum and limeade.

I can eat Taco Bell tacos and the results are mixed depending on how hygienic the Taco Bell in question is.

And I like Doritos.

But even the IDEA of taco shell made out of Dorito material and flavoring is enough to make me wretch. I would not eat one for free.

I don't care for them. They somehow made the Doritos shell even thinner then the regular crunchy taco shells. They crack apart if you look at them too closely.

This. I love me some Doritos and had some hopes for this product, but there was little Dorito flavor in them. I was more annoyed by their packaging. After unwrapping the normal paper, there was a cardboard holder in the shape of a taco letting me know I'm about to experience awesomeness; it was anything but.

I was sick last week. I had bad case of the runs. I figured what the hell, it's not like Taco Bell is going to make this any worse. So I ran down to my local Bell and loaded up on all the crap I love but normally avoid due it's ability to void my bowels. The explosive dump I took about 20 minutes before mowing down a grilled stuffed burrito, a couple of double decker tacos, a mexican pizza, an enchirito and a beef meximelt or three was the last bout of diarrhea I had. Mass quantities of Taco Bell actually cured my ills.

\Yeah, I sound do fat.

Pretty sure I work with you. If not I guess you are not the only one to sing praises of the TB Limeade.

The Dorito taco is too thin of a shell. It falls apart if you look at it sideways. Too small as well. 1/2 cheesy potato burrito is the way to go. Hell, cram doritos in it if you love em that much.

I had Taco Bell the other day for the first time in years. I think the quality has gone down. Especially the tacos. The cheese was like plastic, the "beef" was greasier and more gelatinous than I remember.

This last batch I didn't even make it to the bathroom.

(still one of the best flavors they ever made − they recently brought 'em back, in the original packaging no less!).
 
2012-06-05 12:47:41 PM  
I tried it out of curiosity. I'm ambivalent about Taco Bell tacos. They aren't good but they aren't really bad either. They are just kind of their. I do love me some original Doritos, though. A mediocre taco with the awesomeness of Doritos seemed like an OK idea.

Except the shell didn't really taste like Doritos that much. And as poot_rootbeer said, the shell was thin and brittle. I think it actually ended up being worse than a regular Taco Bell taco.

Yeah, sorry TB isn't Hector Gonzzzzales who servers up his magical burritos out of a cart right next to where you work on Wall St, which are the best in the world, and you've been eating them since before it was cool to go there.

Taco Bell is cheap(er?) and fast mexican-style food. It won't have the same quality as the upscale Mexican resturant that sells plantains with poached quail eggs. But what did you expect? For fast tacos at 2am, TB is pretty damn good. And the Doritos tacos are quite tasty.
 
2012-06-05 12:49:50 PM  
Wife and i agreed they were worse than the normal ones. They taste the exact same, only the Dorito ones are harder to eat because they break apart easier. The one I got even came with a cardboard insert to try and hold it together. That was the first bad omen. They're just nothing special, as everyone else said.

First, Taco Bell is Mexican food like Spaghetti-O's are Italian food.

And second, no it is not suddenly popular to hate chain restaurants. It has been popular for some time now. Institutional food is cheap, yes. But it is all (fast food in particular) homogenized, uninspiring crap. Just because you are out-of-touch with modern societal views does not make those of us who are not somehow snobbish "hipsters".

No, and I think you're confused. It's not "hating" to say Taco Bell serves crap; that's their goddamn business model. It's like saying Firestone sells tires or your mom sells blowjobs. There is nothing controversial about calling a spade a spade. I lived off Taco Bell when I was poor. I stopped when I could afford food.

I AM agonna hatin' on anyone who tries to convince others something is better than it really is, which pretty much includes every single chain restaurants' marketing and PR departments.

This. Thisthisthisthisthis.

I get tired of the food-hipster attitude of "Oh that sucks, it isn't up to my exquisite standards!" Nobody gives a shiat about your standards. If you don't like fast food that's 100% fine but it isn't anything to brag on, and isn't any reason to hate on it.

Is Taco Bell wonderful Mexican food? Hell no. It's not even really Mexican, more an American take on it. Ok so what? It is cheap fast food and apparently plenty of people like it or they wouldn't be so damn common. Hell you even find them in Europe. It's fine. If you like it, good deal eat there when it pleases you. If you don't like it, also good deal, don't eat there.

Funny thing is the people I know that I would say have the most refined palettes are also able to appreciate fast food on occasion for what it is: Unhealthy, greasy, but tasty junk food. They don't eat it often but they can enjoy it on occasion. The people who hate on it are hipster types who think that makes them cool, and often eat just as unhealthy, just from other sources.

I was feeling self-abusive one day and decided to give those Doritos Locos Tacos a try.

Holy farking salt lick, Batman!

Just take a regular Taco Bell taco, cover it with salt and MSG, and enjoy. I don't mean a sprinkling of salt and MSG, either. I want you to pour a full tablespoon of each right into the center, so every bite is chock-full of Sodium goodness.

The shells actually have MORE of the "flavor powder" per square inch than actual Doritos! It's insane! My blood pressure shot through the roof after the first bite!

Also, the Doritos shell is far sturdier than a regular shell, so after taking one bite the entire thing will fracture into several large pieces. It's like biting into plate glass.

Never again.

Is it suddenly popular to hate anything that is a chain resturant? Peoplehere on fark have bashed everything from TB and Burger King to Chili's and P.F. Chang's.

This. Thisthisthisthisthis.

I get tired of the food-hipster attitude of "Oh that sucks, it isn't up to my exquisite standards!" Nobody gives a shiat about your standards. If you don't like fast food that's 100% fine but it isn't anything to brag on, and isn't any reason to hate on it.

Is Taco Bell wonderful Mexican food? Hell no. It's not even really Mexican, more an American take on it. Ok so what? It is cheap fast food and apparently plenty of people like it or they wouldn't be so damn common. Hell you even find them in Europe. It's fine. If you like it, good deal eat there when it pleases you. If you don't like it, also good deal, don't eat there.

Funny thing is the people I know that I would say have the most refined palettes are also able to appreciate fast food on occasion for what it is: Unhealthy, greasy, but tasty junk food. They don't eat it often but they can enjoy it on occasion. The people who hate on it are hipster types who think that makes them cool, and often eat just as unhealthy, just from other sources.


I love this new form of political correctness that seems to have swept this country in recent years where nothing is allowed to be inherently better than anything else, and to express an opinion about the merits of anything means that you're an "elitist", or a "hipster", or that you "think yer better'n me!11".

Taco Bhell meat contains Silicon Dioxide, or powdered sand if you need it spelled out.

Makes the taco or burrito *feel* heavier, like you got your money's worth. Anyone okay with this may continue to eat sand.

There are really no other drive through "Mexican food" options, at least around where I live.

There are tons of burger joints. I would think giving Taco Bell some competition in the drive through market would be good. Not sure why no others have popped up.

Silicon is a trace mineral found in your body that promotes bone and cartilage health. See, Taco Bell is healthy!

Chemical-coated taco shell made from some corn-like substance. Check
Taco Bell's Almost Real Meat slurry/soup. Check
Lettuce, bathed in sulfites and packaged three months ago. Check
Something vaguely similar to tomatoes, also packaged three months ago. Check
Sour cream without any real cream. Check
All thrown together by someone who doesn't have enough English to be able to read the "Employees must wash hands" sing in the bathroom. Check

It's probably the most healthy thing in it. Silicone dioxide is an anti-caking agent and is found in many food products. It's harmless, since sand is inert.

It's just a Taco Supreme with a shell that crumbles in your hand when you eat it, and leaves your taco all over the paper it was wrapped in. Do yourself a favor and just order a Taco Supreme. At least it will stay together while you're eating it.

I sometimes eat my chili with a small side or Doritos. They're the perfect crunchy compliment. I knew these would go over well. Doritos taste good with seasoned turkey meat/ ground beef (cue the "its not meat" joke). But for some reason, I have no desire to eat a Doritos taco. I'm not one of these food elitist. I just don't want one. I think its that I subconsciously remember the controversy about the consistency of their meat a few years ago. The same thing happened to me with Dominos Pizza after the guy jizzed on one a long time ago. I still don't eat there.

Little-known Taco Bell fact: you can add guacamole to everything they make for $0.25-$0.50 per item depending on your location. Their guacamole real, no dairy, no vegetable oil. Just avocado, tomato, onion, lime, spices, and emulsifier/stabilizer. Better than the stuff most people buy at the grocery store.

Taco Bell isn't meant to compete with sit-down restaurants. Let me know when there's a better taco joint with a drive through that can have me out of there with food in hand in 2 minutes. Especially if they have a drink that mixes better with rum than the limeade sparkler. Oh dear god do I love my rum and limeade.

JPSimonetti: Rapmaster2000: It was always pretty crappy. You just have better taste now.

My wife and I keep having this issue. Olive Garden, for instance. It's like 1 notch above fast food, except their soup and breadsticks. Their pasta is probably canned. All of it. We make better at home easily. But, I remember it used to be good. Ah well.


No one should expect OG to compare to a real Italian joint, but Olive Garden isn't even that cheap. I like their lunch special because I can go to town on some Minestrone. Other than that, you can cook most anything they make there for a fraction of the cost at home without much hassle. Remember, Italian is the easy cooking.

That being said, Taco Bell is my favorite drunk fast-food. I'm not proud of that.
 
2012-06-05 02:02:44 PM  
I had no idea that this was even a thing until today. I kind of want to try one now. It's probably disgusting but so is almost everything else on their menu. The gordita crunch thing (soft taco shell wrapped around hard taco shell with some sort of ranch dressing on it) is about the one thing I have ever ordered from them that I enjoyed.

Testify! I love to eat at fancy restaurants on occasion, but I also don't mind the occasional all-you-can-eat Chinese buffet or even a trip down to Taco Hell. Those damned Doritos Locos Tacos are addicting as hell, deep-fried heroin, so I indulge--usually when I'm flying to a gig and want to find an airport restaurant that doesn't cost a zillion dollars.

The people who hate on it are hipster types who think that makes them cool, and often eat just as unhealthy, just from other sources.

Pretty much all snobbery is ultimately caused by insecurity. The truly hip, cool people tend to not give three shiats and a piss towards what other people think of them.

Yeah, sorry TB isn't Hector Gonzzzzales who servers up his magical burritos out of a cart right next to where you work on Wall St, which are the best in the world, and you've been eating them since before it was cool to go there.

Taco Bell is cheap(er?) and fast mexican-style food. It won't have the same quality as the upscale Mexican resturant that sells plantains with poached quail eggs. But what did you expect? For fast tacos at 2am, TB is pretty damn good. And the Doritos tacos are quite tasty.

I had one of these last week out of sheer curiousity. Underwhelmed. It's just a saltier taco.

I'm not sure if it's because the doritos formula is different on it, or if the nacho flavor is lost in the already salty taco flavor.

Yep - when I lived in Brooklyn I had a fantastic soul food place right around the corner from me. I would go there and order things an the proprietors - a pair of southern evacuees who stayed in Brooklyn - would marvel.

a few canned/jarred jalapeno slices
shredded lettuce
taco sauce

Q'doba is about the same distance away from me as Taco Bell, so I pretty much never go to the latter. With Taco Bell's meat, I feel like I'm eating People ChowTM.

CSB:

in college I worked at a Citibank collections call center. It was staffed with a dead even split of college students and townies, mostly Mexican. One townie started doing that, and all the college kids loved it, b/c they got a fresh meal as opposed to canned food, or the cheap drive through stuff.

Of course the one stiff in management made a deal about it (she was jealous that no one there wanted to hang out with her), and ratted the lady out. So the big boss made this big deal about it, b/c they have a vending machine and she didn't have a food license, and was breaking the law by selling food on sie. The taco lady was part of my team, so we devised a plan. She'd bring our team a "gift" of tacos...and everyone else would get leftovers...then on the smoke break, people would be nice, and give us money for the leftover tacos.

Of course the crazy chick found out, and tried to toss a wrench in things, trying to grab leftovers, even though they were technically sold. It was funny watching people run up to our side of the office to grab food and run away before she could get to our cubicle.

No reason that get on a lady trying to make an extra buck, make college kids happy with real food.

FTFY.

I've been in Fark threads where people were bashing To Kill a Mocking Bird and 1984. It would actually be worrisome if people weren't bashing Taco Bell.

Jument: Qdoba ftw IMHO. They put crack cocaine (or something) in the chicken and it's at least moderately healthy if you skip the sour cream.


Yeah I did; how else was I gonna get positive employee reviews?

Yeah, sorry TB isn't Hector Gonzzzzales who servers up his magical burritos out of a cart right next to where you work on Wall St, which are the best in the world, and you've been eating them since before it was cool to go there.

Taco Bell is cheap(er?) and fast mexican-style food. It won't have the same quality as the upscale Mexican resturant that sells plantains with poached quail eggs. But what did you expect? For fast tacos at 2am, TB is pretty damn good. And the Doritos tacos are quite tasty.


TB is complete shiat. It used to be decent, back in the 1990's. Back when you could get a meximelt for $0.69. Now you can't get out of there with 3 for less than around $5-$6. For that price, you can get better food at Moes/Chipotle/Willys/Qdoba. I haven't really eaten at a TB since those burrito shops became mainstream, other than once a year to remind myself why I never go back. Which is, expensive ass food that's not even spicy that ALWAYS farks your stomach up. Them being open late IS a valid point....but I think I'd rather have a microwave burrito. About the same as taco bell and 1/5 the price.

This. It was just as tasty as the rest of their stuff, but they managed to make it even more messy. This is why stoners don't usually get to make decisions.

bdub77: I haven't willingly eaten Taco Bell in years. Way too many good Mexican options in the area.

Taco Bell isn't meant to compete with sit-down restaurants. Let me know when there's a better taco joint with a drive through that can have me out of there with food in hand in 2 minutes. Especially if they have a drink that mixes better with rum than the limeade sparkler. Oh dear god do I love my rum and limeade.

Atleast their breakfast burritos. There so dense and good.

YMMV

The last time I was there I ordered without checking the prices figuring it would be cheap. A chicken soft taco, quesadilla, and large drink was over $8. I was thinking, "fark, the only thing this shiatty place has going for it is fast and cheap and I didn't even get that, I fail."

How many people here hating on Taco Bell like Chipotle? I'll admit that Taco Bell isn't the best stuff out there, but it never treats me the way Chipotle does.

/And as bad as it treats me, it treats everyone around me even worse.
 
2012-06-05 07:45:57 PM  
Last week i forgot to pack my lunch so I decided to hit up taco bell. They had a Fritos burrito, of course I had to try it. Not bad but better then the Loco Taco would rather get a Grilled Stuffed Burrito with steak next time.. Everything I thought about the Doritos taco has already been said. Usually I prefer to go to Robertos or Qdoba for my quick Mexican fix but occasionally I get the craving for Taco Bell. I've never had the issue with having stomach problems after eating it either.

Chipotle can have you in and out in about 2 minutes. But you're gonna have to get your fat ass outta the car. Sorry.

Taco Bell is ass. It just goes to show that most of America is obese and/or stoned.

Willingly? Tell me about the times you unwillingly ate bad Mexican tacos. Go on, tell me.


They're taco-boarding people in Guantanamo now.

Don't laugh, they're testing out Cool Ranch Dorito tacos too. I'm sure they're gonna be just as awesome.

fatalvenom: Rapmaster2000: We made up this story about someone driving 900 miles for a taco, and cast these attractive hipster approximations in a Volvo 245 to try and convince you that this really happened.

File under commercials I hate.

I love that you called out the 245. It's the hipster Bentley. Since the local supply is getting thin, I've been seeing a lot more of them buying beat up Saab 900s.


Wow, hipsters actually LIKE selling their arms, legs, ass and genitalia to pay the repair bills?

Yes, call me when they come out with the cool ranch. never liked the nacho cheese doritos.

/love dipping cool ranch in sour cream.
 
2012-06-05 10:41:40 PM  
I love Doritos (why, yes, I do sound fat), and I love cheese. However Doritos are hardly real cheese and belong nowhere near any other cheese, or cheese like substance.

As a picky child, in the lunchroom, one of the few things I would eat is their so called "Nachos". For a time, they decided to change the regular tortilla chips to Doritos, and it was the most vile disgusting thing ever.

So the idea anything else made with Doritos makes me want to vomit. Nevermind that I don't like beef thus tacos anyways, but it sounds gross.

Plain original flavor Doritos for me, thanks.

I like the Bueno. They put a few in town a few years back, then closed them all down. Too much competition from The Bell I guess.

Look, by the time I find a free handicap spot (my doctor says it's not healthy for me to walk very far, due to the load on my joints), unload my rascal scooter, and take a oreo break after so much exertion, it takes upwards of 40 minutes to get into Chipotle. (I can cut that down to maybe 25 minutes if I don't eat the whole bag).
And that is just too much time to aquire sustanence. It's much faster to hit the drive-thru and get my before-lunch snack of 12 taco supremes and a large diet Coke.
 
2012-06-06 07:49:59 AM  
Not a huge fan of these... but also not a big fan of hard tacos in general.

Regarding Doritos - personally, I miss the Doritos 3D. Less tortilla-y, more flavorful. If I want tortilla chips, I'll get the plain ones and pair them with salsa, sour cream, etc., but the 3D ones were like a whole different product that I really enjoyed.

Del Taco is better, but only marginally.

I don't understand why everything in a nominally Tex-Mex restaurant chain comes with french fries, though. Isn't the best side dish for a couple of tacos another taco?

The only thing I don't like about Del Taco is that they over-char their meet. I know that they're going for a carbonized flavor, but it doesn't really agree with me.
