Taco Bell 2014 -

Recommended Posts

Living where I do I have every national fast food joint close by. Ironically the Taco Bell at the closest big shopping center closed; replaced by Peruvian?!  Interesting. I am not a fast food afficianao but I must admit that when the chips are down and maybe comfort food is required - TB's bean & cheese burritos hit the spot (with hotter sauce from home). It has been years, but I remember them well :)

Every restaurant that exists in the tiny town I live in is within 2 miles of home, almost all of them are within a few blocks, and I always know I can make better food at home... but somebody else can make the food and clean up the mess at the restaurants. So sometimes better food doesn't win. :D

I agree but I am a bit of a person that hates to hear her husband complain about them not doing the food to his satisfaction and then how his intestinal system is in distress......how I heard about the bit of butter on the English muffins and how they were burnt so I had to luck the burnt bits off....but not perfectly as himself had to pull off more

Okay, I've already admitted on here that I am a fan of Taco Bell's sleazy comfort food. :$

 

I can't get there anymore, but you know what? I would love a Spicy Tostada, a few Crispy Tacos and a Bean and Cheese Burrito RIGHT NOW!

 

Here's an article from our local TV station about a Taco Bell Cantina that offers alcohol right across Hillsborough St. from the NC state campus. They say there are only 40 like this nationwide.

I finally tried Taco Bell's french fries. They're really good and are not spicy at all. I couldn't figure out what the spice blend on the fries was. Just an overall nice blend.

The cheese sauce they give you (to dunk the fries in) is ubiquitous and very generic tasting.

The major drawback with the fries is that they are limp when served. They need to be run through an Air Fryer to totally crisp them up and then they'd really be awesome.

"New spicy Steak Rattlesnake Fries are sliding into Taco Bell for limited time"

Quote

Taco Bell's new spicy side item has some bite.

The Mexican-style fast-food chain announced Thursday that Steak Rattlesnake Fries will slide into participating restaurants nationwide on Feb. 28. The fiery fries join Taco Bell's popular Nacho Fries, which returned Jan. 24 and are available for a limited time.

Rattlesnake Fries also include the seasoned fries and nacho cheese but are topped with marinated steak, creamy jalapeño sauce and spicy jalapeños.

Both types of fries are around for a limited time so get 'em while you can. :cool:
