If you're eating at Taco Bell, you're most likely only going to be dealing with liquids, anyway

I wonder if they'll have verbal standards censors in the bathrooms.

Chipotle started in Denver, actually. Near DU. I've eaten at the original. Not that it's real Mexican food. But then, Taco Bell's not even real FOOD.

Well, Casa Bonita is only, like, a half-step better than The Bell - food-wise. Chipotle is much better.

/it's all Mexican food - a limited variety of Mexican food that actual Mexicans would be embarrassed to serve at home - but tacos, burritos, etc. are real Mexican food

The comment was amusing enough, but I always get a special laugh when vartian posts, and I remember that he is labeled as the "bell ringer for the denizens of hell."

I can't remember why though...

i'll have to admit ignorance to your post. but the 1 time i ate pizza hut during my 4 year tour of duty in germany, my friends and i had made a trip to garmisch-partenkirschen, ate at a really nice pizza hut with a menu that had more variety than the pizza huts i'm used to here

For a good eat, check out the Columbine Steak House on Federal. Food on one side, and drinks on the other. Very late 50's. Go for lunch.
 
2012-10-06 07:51:47 PM
OK, so
Seashell 1: Big Chunks
Seashell 2: Klingons
Seashell 3: Shave the brown eye

But then what do you do with the seashells? Do you put them back on the shelf? Do you drop them in the bowl? What happens after that? Is there a special repository for them like TP at a Shanghai Toilet?
 
2012-10-06 07:56:55 PM
yet ironically Taco Bell has been using rat meat for decades.. Not just for sewer dwellers anymore..
 
2012-10-06 08:07:54 PM
I had one of their cantina bell burritos not too long ago and it was really awful. I am not a picky eater, but it was so bad it actually made me angry and put me in a bad mood. Pre cooked bagged meat and slimy green colored mayonnaise. It cost only a little less than a burrito from Chipotle or Qudoba, which would have been 100% better. Taco bell needs to stick with what they're good at which is cheap greasy fake mexican food, and not try to rip me off with any more shenanigans.

I just assumed they were buttons that activated some nanite technology or something.

In the US, the film Demolition Man has an upscale Taco Bell. In Europe, they edited the footage and re-dubbed the lines to make it Pizza Hut. Product placement at work!

Doesn't fit too well with the laws against cholesterol and salt in the future. Not that Taco Bell is health food but you could conceivably make that crap with turkey and no cheese.

Upscale Taco Bell in Commerce City? Really? I mean, really? The place stinks bad enough as it is, this will just make it that much more, ah, aromatic.

//drives past Commerce City every day on the highway

1. There's a disturbing lack of Sandra Bulock in tight pants here.
2. Another thing from Demolition Man that came true: Wesley Snipes is in prison.

Taco Bell doesn't love me but I love those nasty Doritos tacos. I know I should be repulsed by them but they're so delicious. And they make a great monthly cleanse. Take two once a month and you'll be nice and clean and ready to get back in schedule.

Also, the Google is doing a lot of work on self driving cars.

I would rate Casa Bonita beneth Taco Bell and most frozen dinners. I'm pretty sure Casa Bonita is a creepy social experement.

GAT_00: Upscale Taco Bell? They opened a Chipotle?

Aaaand this is news HOW?? The Taco Bell in my old hometown back in Indiana got a complete new renovation from the ground up not 6 months ago. What the article describes is exactly what the new place looks like. Small little tables with tall bar stools with only three booths in the entire place, white LED tube lighting along the ceiling & around the tables, purple neon lighting all around the outside of the store, red interior lighting instead of the white fluorescent lighting that we're all used to, some sort of brown floor-stone-looking material, "weird" paintings (or printed I couldn't tell) on the walls, several small islands where they keep the packages of hot sauces & green sauce...but overall it's not a place to take your family anymore because it looked EXACTLY like the type of place a "hipster" would hang out. And sure enough, the first time I walked into the store instead of going through drive-up, there were...maybe...20 or so teens & NO adults in there, all banging happily away on their cellphones. I don't even wanna know what type of "music" I was hearing in there. It didn't sound like the "muzak" that's piped in from satellite dishes that's on top of most businesses. I didn't see any of them eating anything, just lounging around.

I never went back once I saw the inside & what had happened to the Taco Bell I used to go to for a late night meal.

Thank God I moved to Virginia, 3 months ago, where there's still a real Taco Bell not far from here that's just as boring...just like it's supposed to be!

I dunno about other countries, but here in Sweden, Pizza Hut is already "upscale" and fully licensed to serve alcohol. I think they had to go upscale because they couldn't compete with all those local pizza places run by mostly immigrant Turks.
