"Average"doesn't necessaritly mean "normal". Average just means you are a "C" student.

Actually, I approvwe. I give Taco Bell lots of credit for getting the message to add protein to their breakfasts./
 
2014-07-19 02:07:45 PM  
Although it's better than anything anybody else serves for breakfast, I'd like to see a little more "peppers and onions" in their breaksfast burritos.
 
2014-07-19 02:23:31 PM  
Their breakfast burritos are bland. They used to sell breakfast burritos that had potatoes and salsa in them. That was the early '90's in Tucson, I don't know if it was a national thing or not.
 
2014-07-19 02:24:20 PM  
The waffle tacos suck and look nasty. The breakfast Crunchwrap ain't bad, but the Cinnaburn goo balls are gross. Just give me a breakfast burrito with eggs, meat and some grilled peppers / onions, etc... No nasty fake cheese and no hashbrowns. Sonic doesn't do a bad breakfast burrito, but they're way too messy.

For my greasy breakfast needs I think I will stick with the quarter pound of chorizo with a couple eggs, peppers, onions, cheese, guac, sour cream, salsa and anus igniting hot sauce wrapped in a tortilla from the taco truck down the street. Thanks anyway Taco Bell.

I still haven't tried one of those Dorrito shelled tacos and I live within a 1/4 mile of one.   Taco hell for breakfast?  No thanks, a cup of coffee gets my grumpess going in the morning tyvm.
 
2014-07-19 02:47:10 PM  
Umm, there are no Mexicans in Kansas.

This just proves Taco Bell isn't real Mexican food.
 
2014-07-19 02:47:36 PM  
Taco Bell is also geographically savvy.  No matter whether you head for the Canadian or Mexican border, they're both about equidistant from Omaha.

Have you seen the Doritos Loaded? Interesting concept, and don't taste too bad. Ya don't get much for $2 tho.  I like the old-school Dorito flavors, but the new flavors (and the taco shells) suck ass.

We had them in the L.A. area too. They were awesome - sausage crumbles, hash brown nuggets, shredded cheese (that good full-fat cheese), and salsa. Man, I miss those.

Thankfully due to living in Austin, TX, the one sin I don't need to commit is getting any kind of "mexican food" from a franchise.

No.  I'd rather just make some myself and use the chips for dipping, like a Doritos taco salad.  I think those old school flavors you speak of is when we were kids and they didn't use copious amounts of MSG like nowadays.  Ya know, like real ingredients.

Actually, through the magic of Google maps, it turns out the Canadian border is a mere 500 miles away while the Mexican border is over 800 miles away from the bustling metropolis of Omaha.  I fear I may suffer from East Coast Ignorance Syndrome when it comes to distances in America's heartland.

Yeah, but it doesn't matter.  Taco Bell isn't doing anything in Mexico, and all those spices would just upset Canadians.  The more important thing is that it's damned near the same distance to NY or LA.

Can't remember the last time I ate at a Taco Hell. It amazes me that people in this state (New Mexico) do, when there's fantastic New Mexican/Mexican food at any number of places that are just as convenient. In the small towns you can always find a store that sells locally-made tamales & burritos & overall they tend to be very good.

/Blake's make a good breakfast burrito if you must have fast food

So typical of the Hot Sauce crowd. Its great that you like hot sauce. Eat what you want.

Here in Battle Creek, MI, we have a number of Mexican food joints... run by actual Mexicans serving actual Mexican food. And they seem to be doing rather well. Thank God for our guests from south of the border deciding that Battle Creek, MI was where they wanted to live (we actually have a rather sizable Latino community here for being as far north of the Mexican-US border as we are).
