Everyone bashing Taco Bell:
wtfhub.com

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.
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.

It's funny because the best place in my town to get a gyro isn't the 4 or 5 Greek places around; it's the guy with a cart in the parking lot of a strip club called Bare Assets.

El Freak: I came to the conclusion a while back that most of the people who piss and moan about hipsters are unsophisticated, insecure dullards who are scared shiatless to try anything new or think about anything. I can't wait for the day when people able to read and write and speak coherently gets you labeled a "hipster".


I'd rather being the annoying guy who gets excited over silly things than the surly asshole who hates the excited guy. I'm neither but given the choice I'd pick happy over asshole every time.

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.

bhcompy: Burritos and french fries is the most authentic Mexican dish ever invented


You know whats even better? French fries IN the burritos. TB had some tasty concoction many years ago, that had fried potatos loaded in the burrito. It. Was. Awesome.

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

A gajillion years ago when I lived in Salinas, California an old hispanic lady came to my work every morning with piping hot Chorizo, egg and potato burritos loaded up in a coleman cooler. $2.

I would almost be willing to move back to my $2,000 a month crappy, run down apartment just to get a burrito like that.

Would have liked to have tried them if they were made with the Cool Ranch.

They should just make shells you can buy at the store to make your own tacos.

Though a bag of Doritos and make a salad would do.

It's true. They're completely free.


Well of course they are. Only whores charge for blowjobs, and my mom is no whore. She is, however, a slut.

Does anyone remember the bean and cheese burritos that 7-11 used to sell? I'm sure it didn't contain anything but gooey chemicals - really tasty chemicals. I've had a craving for one for awhile, but the local 7-11's carry another style of burrito now.

Ahh, fark food threads. Where a completely subjective subject most likely based on subconscious nutritional needs becomes an all-out bash-fest for chain restaurants or anything less than craft beer.

sycraft: 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.


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.

/eccentric as hell
//hip because I never would drink a tall boy or a shirt with Tommy Hellfarker's name on it
///thinking that you can be cool by buying the right products makes you a fool and a tool, but never cool

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.

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.

Taco Bell is fine, but only when its late at night and I just don't give a fark.

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.

They used the wrong old flavor of Doritos®:

When Doritos first came out, there were only two flavors: plain (flavored only with salt), and this
(still one of the best flavors they ever made − they recently brought 'em back, in the original packaging no less!).

I am scared to try it, I cannot see how a doritos flavored taco can possibly tase good.

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.
\\Not really fat though.
\\\Still surprised that it didn't coalesce into some sort of super duper pooper.

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.
