Eventually they'll just drop the pretense and serve buckets o' slop. You just go sit at your trough and they bring a bucket and throw it in.

This is a good step, but why stop there? Why not cultivate the advances in stuffed crust pizza technology to pioneer a hollow, flavored tortilla? The tortilla itself tastes like nachos, chicken, and potatoes, and inside its hollow interior can be squirted a flavored paste of nachos, chicken, and potatoes.Then, the flavored, stuffed tortilla is wrapped around actual nachos, chicken, and potatoes and served on a bed of nachos, chicken, and potatoes. That's what I'm waiting for.

Of all the fast food restaurants, they have the most room to grow. All they have to do is wrap any and every good item in a tortilla or taco shell and, Voila! a new Mexican dish! I am waiting for them to start serving Mexican burgers and fries.

Is this because the only vegetable Americans will eat is a potato?

Also, how can this be good? And also, do Americans realize that you can buy a 5 lb sack of potatoes for $1 (that is the sale price at my store) and tortillas at prb 8 for $1 and make these in the microwave in 5 minutes?

Holy shiat, why is this a big deal? I mean, isn't a baked potato about the least obnoxious thing you could eat at a fast food restaurant? And tortillas are so fattening or something? This isn't like a sandwich bun made of fried chicken. Why can't we try new things?

Imma open a restaurant called "the Trough" because fark it, Americans don't' give a fark. they'll shovel anything into their gaping maws. As long as it's greasy and salty and hot, they'll suck it down and waddle away with empty wallets. I'll server various versions of slop in bowls. maybe put a high fructose corn syrup type soda fountain on each table. Then charge by the gallon as they serve themselves. Hose the place out each night and laugh all the way to the bank. If People want to be fat, disgusting pigs, I may as well make a profit off of them.

I don't remember the comedian (maybe gaffigan), but one had a skit that went something like this:

I used to work at a Mexican restaurant, and people would always ask what a menu item is. "Oh, a flauta? What is that?" It's a tortilla with meat, vegetables, and cheese. The thing about Mexican restaurants is, no matter what item of food you're looking at, the answer is always the same. It's a tortilla with meat, vegetables and cheese.

Hey now, potatoes originated in South/Central America and were only brought to Europe when those damn Spaniards came along. The Irish are just riding coattails and are lucky they even know what a potato is.

Hip-hop is NOT music. When you want REAL Mexican food, where do you go? Unfortunately, most Americans have to settle for Americanized faux food. I'm lucky we have a sizable Hispanic population in my area.

Well, good for you. I imagine the Mexicans are impressed. And hey, there's plenty of real taquerias near me too, and I often go there. Not to mention pupuserias, a place that serves amazing colombian food, etc etc. And it's absolutely no skin off my nose if you don't ever want Taco Bell. To each his own.

Here's the thing, though. Sometimes I get a craving for Taco Bell. At that time, I am not craving Mexican food. If I was, I would go to a Mexican place. What I am craving is Taco Bell. And that's okay. So please, for the love of pete, you and everybody else stop with the "you should eat at a real Mexican place instead of Taco Bell." Because I will, when what I want is Mexican.

I have Taco Bell on occasion. It's not as bad as people like to pretend-- It's meat, lettuce, tomatoes, and tortillas with some cheese food and refried beans, sometimes. Hardly as bad as McDonald's or Burger King's offerings, and great deal less loaded with MSG than KFC.

But lately, they've changed their chicken. It used to just be chicken. No particular flavor-- Just, well, chicken flavor. Now, however, it has a kind of lime flavor. It's awful. It wanted a lime taco, I'd ask for a lime taco. I want a CHICKEN taco, hence it should taste LIKE CHICKEN.

Dammit Taco Bell... You took away the second-best thing on your menu (Chicken Quesedilla) and replaced it with some awful lime-flavored mess.

/Best-tasting thing on the menu is a steak supreme chalupa.
//Only eat it when I have little time and/or choice... But it's not as horrible as people pretend it is.
