mc_madness: Taco Bell is the best Mexican cuisine on earth. Amazing quality for the price.


Your point has merit in any part of the country without taco trucks. Really, it does. Taco Bell makes very tasty food and it's comparatively cheap. There are innumerable Mexican restaurants around here and very few of them can match the taste of lowly Taco Bell and they all cost more. Only in a proper taco truck can the price/performance ratio of Taco Bell be exceeded. (if it has some punny name, like "Mexican Sweet" or "Lettuce Make You Tacos", it's not a proper taco truck, it's a hipster truck. DO NOT BE FOOLED)

The butthurt and gnashing of teeth in this thread is awesome. You take Fark faaaaar too seriously.
Now, since I recognize my kind in here. here is a recipe my Mexican soon-to-be mother-in-law taught me.
Fry some thin cut steak (diezmillo is best) in a little bit of oil until browned. Remove from pan. In pan' sautee a sliced onion, bell peppers, a couple jalapenos, garlic and a bouillion cube. Slice meat; throw in pan with several chopped potatoes and tomatoes. Cover. Cook on medium until potato is cooked through. Eat with tortillas, crema and salt.
You're welcome.

bhcompy: TACO BELL ISN'T TEX MEX STOP CALLING IT TEX MEX YOU STUPID TEXICANS

This shiat is from California, like Del Taco. We Californians have pride in our cheap, shiatty Mexican styled fast food. How long until In-N-Out is identified with Texas because they now have locations in Texas? In short, fark you Texas, stop trying to steal our mojo.


calm down. what are we supposed to call the cali stuff? calixan? cal-mex? tex-mex sounds better, whether it actually fits or not. plus, who called TACO BELL "tex-mex"? i've seen a lot of people talk about tex-mex, and talk about tb, but only in comparison.

bungle_jr: are you saying that taco bells are "dirty disgusting pigsties", or that locally owned ethnic restaurants are "dirty disgusting pigsties". either way, a very bad generalization based on little to no proof.



Tag along with a health inspector and enjoy the show of fast food.

Locally owned restaurants have a standard they uphold. Kids working in fast food just want their paycheck and for their shift to end.

trappedspirit: Is this going to be the thread where people with weak digestive systems and the bowels of an infant come to complain about how Taco Bell food sends them on an emergency trip to the toilet while the rest of us go and eat their rice, cheese, bean, ground beef, and flour tortilla combinations and have no issues? Because if so, sign me up!



No, apparently this is where idiots like yourself don't realize people with different ethnic backgrounds don't digest certain foods properly. Not to mention most cases of fast food sickness come from the fact that all their restaurants are dirty disgusting pigsties.

The local taco truck in our town (called Tacos Mexico) did enough business to build a building and start a real restaurant. They still have the truck sitting outside, and they do events with it from time to time. Steak tacos for a buck. Best in town, and they are three blocks from my house.

typical taco bell/fast food thread, i see
plenty of folks saying "authentic is much better...taco trucks...88%beef..."

i know most of you saying these things are either trolls or stupid. you're talking shiat about $1 - $2 fast food tacos/burritos. they're very tasty, inexpensive, quick, and portable. it's not sit-down restaurant fare.

it's not advertised as authentic anything, either, so why bother even comparing? if you really want to rag on such things, start another olive garden thread. they DO advertise as authentic tuscan cuisine, charge $10 - $20 a plate, yet taste about the same as a $3 frozen entree and add in some good bread & salad. you can most definitely find better much closer to authentic freshly made italian food in my area for cheaper!

/spent $2.17 on tb for dinner yesterday...tasty and filling!

Vertdang: OH! And the "all natural" nutters. Preaching ON and ON and ON about how "healthy" they're eating.

Makes me want to give them Arsenic. It's "all natural" too... see how you like it



I dunno. I don't like to support hippy fru fru granolaculture either, but I'm not eating that shiat.

Generally speaking I don't eat meat unless I knew said meat while it was alive.

Seriously.

Every year, I go pick out a cow, lamb, and pig over at a farm nearby. I specify I want mine fed grass only and I get updates about once a month on how they are progressing sort of like if I had adopted it...except that instead of adopting it, I'm gonna eat it. Why do I ask for the updates you ask? Because then I can track its growth rate to ensure the farmer is not bulking it up on corn 2-3 months before slaughter.

When its time to do the deed I go over there and watch so I can verify hanging weight. Then I take it over to a butcher and get the whole thing cut to order.

You know what makes a good farking taco? Paper shaved roundeye steak. Marinate it overnight in a puree of salt, pepper, sugar, jalepeno, habenero, garlic, cilantro, cumin, oregano and olive oil.

Throw it on the grill. Slap it in either some some nice homemade tortas or if you dig the gluten, grilled flatbread. Serve with a heavily limed fresh salsa and a few crumbles of Penella.

How much do they cost?

About $1.99

/Not falling for it.


So it's like the same damm 39 cent taco as the ones they usually sell, but with a bit of orange sprinkles on the shell for a buck and a half more... and it's a huge hit?

Damm people are stupid, top notch real tacos at a place like Robertos are 2 bucks, Carnitas, Asada, Lengua, whatever you want
