busy chillin': IlGreven: xenophon10k: Subby has a weak constitution. Pansy.

...yeah, it's not like it's Taco Bell or anything.

Found in a fark thread when trying to find that term for delicate foodie poop problems:

Claiming that Taco Bell makes you sick is the lamest foodie humblebrag out there. 'Oh Taco Bell? My delicate epicurean sensibilities can not handle popular, cheap food. It's OK for the ketchup eaters, but my system requires something more culturally authentic (to make up for my culturally devoid consumer, vanilla lifestyle)'
Let me clear this up for you- no one sitting in the Taco Bell drive through with three screaming kids, an aching back and $20 is deluding themselves about the quality and authenticity of their meal. It's cheap, edible and quick. That's it.
Same for Olive Garden. No, it's not some ultra-authentic trattoria set up to challenge your culinary sensibilities. It's a lot of palatable food for a reasonable price in an environment that's nicer than a fast food joint.


there's one problem i have with that though. while it's true that most people who go to taco bell don't believe it to be real authentic mexican (though some of the same people i've known DO believe the tex-mex joint a block from tb to be authentic), i've heard MANY people say they love o.g. for their real italian food! that, and "reasonable price" my a$$! cheapest meal on the menu is around $10! i can go to any of the "red sauce" ny italian places around here and get a very yummy pasta meal, hot sandwich, or pizza (also, none of which is "real" italian, but all really good stuff, some of these places here in dfw area are real new yorkers) for MUCH cheaper! and it's much better than anything i've ever had at o.g.!

and i don't hate o.g....it's a place i can go with my folks once every couple of years because they really like it, and i can chow down on one of the 3 things on the menu i do like, plus lots of yummy bread and salad. i just hate how they try to bill themselves as "authentic"

I can't hear anything when I am in Chipotle anyway. I have trouble blocking out background noise from conversation. I just get what the workers are asking my from their gestures and through experience. Between the echo inducing decor and the loud music, I can't understand a word.

OgreMagi: happydude45: Chipotle sucks, period. Go to a real mexican joint and get a really great burrito,

Farking hipsters with their "everything sucks".  Great you have some obscure place no one knows about that is convenient to you.  Awesome.  Well, until they get popular and you stop going and you have to find the next obscure hole in the wall joint.

Chipotle burritos are pretty damn good, cheaper, and more convenient to obtain than going to the high end Mexican restaurant. Yes, the high end place makes better food and I go there when I want a sit down meal and a couple of margaritas.  I don't go there when I want to grab some quick take out to take home with me.


This is what he's referring to when he says a real Mexican joint, not El Torritos:

Cagey B: happydude45: Chipotle sucks, period. Go to a real mexican joint and get a really great burrito, plus awesome tacos too. They tend to be small, local places. Am lucky one is just a few blocks away

Congratulations. You're a foodie and/or a hipster now.

zipdog: authentic mexican taco truck >> qdoba > chipotle >>>> moe's


the_dude_thats_your_opinion.jpg

i kinda tend to put qdoba, chipotle, moes, freebirds, et al, on about equal billing. ok, perhaps moes slightly under the others, but i've only eaten at one once. planet burrito, which as far as i can tell is a one off place in southlake, tx, on the other hand, i'd have to rank slightly higher than the others, except on price. they are slightly more expensive than the others.

i wouldn't bother comparing any of them to anything "authentic" though, since they are all based on a type of mexican-style cuisine founded in california, called "mission style". not knocking mission-style...i prefer it to most tex-mex (and i pass no fewer than 15 tex-mex joints and 10 authentic mexican joints driving approx 20 miles home)

Christ so much, this.

The food is fine.  Not great, not terrible, just fine.  But I can't stand to eat there.  The tiniest noise gets reverberated around the metal-plated room, echoing and echoing.

Keep the exact same decor and put some sound-absorbing tiles on the ceiling, problem would be solved.  Could even get the same color as the rest of the ceiling so none of the customers would be offended by the presence of sound-absorbing tiles.
