ZeroCorpse: I don't understand the point of going out for Mexican. It's SOOOoooo easy to make at home, and it's super-cheap to make tons of it. Ground beef or diced chicken, tomatoes, a head of lettuce, cheese (buy a brick and shred it yourself!), seasoning (you can buy it by the canister), and tortillas. Sour cream if you like.

Boom, better than anything Taco Hell can make.

Chicken Quesedillas are woefully easy to make. Tacos are a cinch. Add a can of refried beans for burritos.

If you have time, you can get advanced and make stuff Taco Bell won't, like Fajitas or Chimichangas. The ingredient list changes a little, but the price is still pretty low (hint: when making chimis, buy a roast, and simmer it for a couple hours with seasoning and chilis, then refrigerate it and shred it the next day. YUM!)

Why eat the "meat?" at Taco Bell or any other restaurant when you can make it SO DAMN EASILY at home?


Crispy taco shells are too small. I need to go out in order to get a decent sized taco.

Cilantro es el hombre con el queso del diablo!

It's not "Mexican" food unless a Mexican cooks it.
Therefore all the restaurants in my town serve Mexican food.

except the Chinese places. well most of them anyway.

WordyGrrl: I lived in San Antonio for 13 years, and wouldn't mind moving back. Taco Bell is not "farking delicious." It's crap passed off as "Mexican," and I never met anyone in SA who ate at a Taco Bell. Even the drunks went elsewhere. If you want some good, cheap, fast Mexican food, there are a TON of places in that town to get it. Las Palapas or Taco Cabana are far better options for fast Mexican food in San Antonio (especially for those drunk munchies), and they use actual tequila in their margaritas.

/You better not tell me you thought Bill Miller's was good barbecue. Tee hee hee...


I have been going into Taco Cabana and ordering the large chips and queso. Grab a spare plate and fill it with onions and jalapeños. Pile it all onto a chip and ... Damnit, now I am hungry again.

Mitt Romneys Tax Return: Even less like real food than Taco Bell tacos. Two for $1.00 around here. So delicious.

And completely meatless.

Everyone hates Taco Bell, but Yum! Brands (which includes Taco Bell, KFC, and Pizza Hut) had company sales revenues in excess of $11.5 billion for FY 2012.... Probably just one really fat, really stoned loser....

Why "shop" in a "store"  for "ground beef" and "diced chicken" when you can raise your own goats and cattle in your own backyard?  So tasty AND BUTCHERING THEM SATES MY  LUST FOR BLOOD.

/let the one-upsmanship continue.

I can't recall who posted it, but TB was dead to me the day they got rid of the frito burrito. The supreme version adding sour cream and tomatoes to the chili cheese and fritos was the ultimate drunk food.

BRING IT BACK AND TAKE MY MONEY!

TheShavingofOccam123: Archimedes' Principal: Taco Bell needs to bring back the 'Bell Burger', later renamed the 'Bell Beefer'.

/ Remembers when their tacos and burritos were 19 cents each.

/that in no way resembles the slop on a bun that I remember...still loved it. I was young and stupid.


This, they might win me back if they brought back that and the Beefy Tostada

You don't seem to want to accept the fact you're dealing with an expert in fast food, with a man who's the best, with drive-thru , without silverware, with his bare hands. A man who's been trained to ignore pain, ignore grease, to live off the wrappers, to eat things that would make a billy goat puke. At Taco Bell his job was to consume whatever was put in front of him. To eat! Period! Win by digestion. Well Karma Chameleon was the best. The BEST!

FTFA: The Cantina release was seen as an attempt to compete with Chipotle, though the two restaurants serve very different demographics.

Yeah. Taco Bell doesn't make you bleed out of your ass like Chipotle does. You have to be able to afford medical insurance to eat at Chipotle.

/actually, I eat at both
//does this mean I'm straddling demographics?

While I don't doubt your homemade tacos are plenty better than Taco Bell or other fast food chains (or even a lot of americanized "Mexican" joints), that's not exactly "going out for Mexican".  Mexican taquierias don't serve ground beef, they serve meat like carnitas (pork) and carne asada (marinated beef steak) on little corn tortillas, which is to die for...

Ego edo infantia cattus: Digitalstrange: Strolpol: Taco Bell: Because you're sick of burger joints and want something spicy that isn't a fried chicken sandwich

spicy?

Know how I know your white?

I'm white, and their "fire" sauce tastes like milk to me.


Uh, dude. There's nothing at all in any taco bell sauce that, in any way, resembles the flavor of milk. Obviously you have synesthesia and I feel bad for you. Or you've never had milk.

The context was spiciness. Milk isn't spicy. I'm guessing u went to a public school

Look, Taco Bell is only in the most generous sense "Mexican" food.  That being said, as far as "Fast Food" goes, it's freaking delicious after a night of drinking.  Like The Colonel, I think they put secret chemicals in the Cheesy Potato Soft Tacos to make you crave more.

Pokey.Clyde: SirEattonHogg: You mean like in a sort of humorous movie starring Sylvestor Stallone and Rob Schneider?

That's Judge Dredd. Taco Bell was "the" restaurant in Demolition Man.


Rob Schneider was also in Demolition Man.

Milk may not be spicy, but salsa isn't in any way milky. Whether I went to public school or not, at least I know the frakkin' difference between salsa and milk, for cryin' out loud. The "context" was the sentence you used. You didn't say that taco bell salsa is "as spicy as milk" or "as weak as milk". You said that it tastes LIKE milk. Perhaps you should go back to public school. Maybe to the third grade, where you will hopefully learn what the word "like" means.

Learn to read, Moran, you are talking to the wrong person. You must really love to play dumb, everyone but you knew what he meant.
