Does anyone else here still buy Taco Bell? They got rid of so many good items, but I think they knew that there’s really nothing out there to fill the void (yes, yes, I’ve still yet to try Del Taco), so they really won’t lose too many customers by raising the prices to match the competition. They’ve kind of conditioned us (not really, though) to expect frequent menu changes; I honestly don’t know if it was a long game thing or just a covid thing, but the value menucaust still just doesn’t make sense to me. The fact that I can get a “free” Bell Grande once a week is a bitter consolation.

>michelin restaurants change the menu up to 4 times a year? that's right. this is some fine dining shit they're doing with their menu
That’s a very disingenuous argument, and also factually incorrect (most Michelin restaurants, even the one stars, change their menu weekly, at least). Taco Bell’s strategy for the past decade plus has been to introduce LTO items to stoke hype and market artificial scarcity – despite literally everyone agreeing that their entire menu consists of 10 different ingredients arranged in different ways. The difference is that they recent got rid of two thirds of their most beloved staples, many of which have been menu standards in living memory if you’re under the age of 40. It’s gotten so bad that I can’t even rely on getting a decent meal there, so have to make a burger – for good measure. Pic related. It’s the burger I made.

I honestly don’t understand why more people don’t use the app. Like, wow, they’re harvesting your order data to enter into an algorithm to further streamline the menu to increase profits. A guy at the window the other night told me that maybe 2% of customers use the app (he was confused that I had a free Bell Grande, because he was completely unaware that they introduced a rewards program months ago). I almost always ordered a fritos burrito and triple layer nachos, but they got rid of those. Here’s what the world looks like when you don’t vote with your money. The empty bullet points should say, “grilled”, obviously.

>10 different ingredients arranged in different ways
>have you looked at other cuisines
Taco Bell is a fast food restaurant, not a cuisine. I have a dozen different taquerias in the area between the three main Taco Bells I frequent, and they all have different salsas and carne asadas, despite all “using the same handful of ingredients”. A better analogy would be to compare Taco Bell with something like Subway, which offers the illusion of choice – and actually offers more options than Taco Bell – but tastes like stale cardboard no matter which combination you choose. Slight variations and modifications at Taco Bell can actually make or break an item, which is kind of their entire genius.
>for someone with Aspergers, this is a very BIG DEAL
This guy gets it. You don’t go to Taco Bell to reap the corn fields of culinary exploration; it’s a comfort food, and an old friend and standby, which is cheap and consistent, and just a nice drunk food to pick up on the way home on the side of whatever else you had planned, for good measure. When someone says, “lol, it’s shitty fast food, who cares”, it’s as though your favorite cigarette brand went out of business overnight and someone said, “lol, who cares, cigarettes are bad for you”.
Every location I go to has different pricing. This one charges a dollar for those items, but adds 10 cents for onions and 45 cents for pico. One of my places introduced the beef burrito at $1.50 and has kept it there, which is crazy since it's almost always tiny. Fortunately they were all decently sized tonight.

That has to be the biggest copout I’ve ever seen. It’s a tiny app, that doesn’t do anything when it’s not open or track your location if you don’t check that box.

>tired of eating the same exact burger
I change it up from time to time, but after having tried almost everything I’ve settled on this as the perfect burger, and when you strike on perfection it quickly starts to feel unironically self-deprecating to forcefully expand your horizons for the sake of “growth”, or whatever authenticity meme word you want to use to validate your lifestyle choices.

Yeah I still go, honestly I bet what they'll do is bring back all those items for limited runs, kind of like how McDonald's has the McRib at various times per year when pork prices get low. We'll see "Quesarito month" and things like that to drive short term traffic imo.

But to answer your question yes I'm still getting taco bell, and actually more than I had ever done so before. Why? you might ask. Well, they changed my schedule at work and I have to be there at 6am now.

I decided to try Taco Bell's Breakfast and it is absolutely god-tier. Makes all other fast food breakfasts, even McDonald's and Wendy's look like absolute garbage in comparison.

Get the Bacon Crunchwrap. It's bacon, free range eggs, cheese, and hashbrowns rolled up in a crunchwrap. It's only $2.99. You can make it a meal and get two delicious cinnamon ball things filled with cinnamon bun topping and a coffee drink all for under $6.

Not only is the Taco Bell breakfast tastier than others, but it is also a better value because you get more food and more calories for less money. It's so good that I legitimately think "breakfast crunchwraps" will become a staple of American cuisine outside of taco bell. Just like you can get an omelette at just about any breakfast restaurant, in the future you'll be able to order a crunchwrap from any breakfast restaurant. They are that fucking good I'm not memeing or joking around

okay I know that part was meme-ing but I really do kind of believe it. The crunchwrap is taco bell's greatest culinary innovation. I mean, there was a time in the USA where you couldn't just go get a taco or burrito anywhere, but now you can, even sometimes at places that aren't explicitly mexican/latino restaurants. I really do think that the crunchwrap is unique and in the future we will have gourmet versions that far surpass anything that exists today.

Imagine a crunchwrap but like with salmon and capers and goat cheese instead of taco bell ingredients. The possibilities are quite limitless

>> No.14893978

I used to go just for the Quesarito. For me it was the perfect item from TB but I would also get a cheesy gordita crunch here and there. I still can't believe they are getting rid of both of them. At least their breakfast makes up for it, but yeah I haven't gone to taco bell for something other than breakfast in like 2 months, when previously I'd go at least once every 2 weeks if not more

>> No.14894008

You know how you sometimes get to the end of a burrito and the last bite is nothing but tortilla folded over on itself? It's like Taco Bell took that idea and designed a burrito around it, like the "all crust" brownie tin of fast food - except that nobody actually wants tortilla folded over on itself. That's the crunchwrap. It's literally a burrito that emphasizes all the worst aspects of burritos, such as bad ergonomics, poor ingredient distribution, and it's all end bites.

Have you actually had the breakfast crunchwrap though? Everywhere I've gone they always put way more food in it than a normal crunchwrap. Maybe it's just because the eggs are fluffy but the breakfast crunchwrap is fat af, at least as much food as they put in a quesarito, definitely more than a gordita.

I think this is for two reasons. One, Taco Bell is trying really hard to capture the breakfast market, so they're pulling out all the stops. And two, I still don't think a lot of people know about TB breakfast, so they always have lots of food they need to use.

Meanwhile, regular crunchwrap is one of their most popular items, and it's more likely they'll stretch out ingredients and make them skimpier.

Otherwise I understand the general premise. There is a fairly big difference with the breakfast crunchwrap. So, with the regular crunchwrap, the "crunch" comes from the flat tostada inside which provides structure.

In the breakfast crunchwrap there is no tostada. It is replaced by a large hash brown which is softer and less crunchy, but much more delicious. I'm telling you, the breakfast crunchwrap from taco bell is the best fast food breakfast you can get bar none. Only thing that was ever comparable were breakfast bagels at mcdonalds

I think the tb breakfast crunchwraps are superior for sure, but back when McDonald's had breakfast bagels I felt they were of higher quality than typical egg mcmuffin or bacon egg and cheese biscuit. I can't think of another fast food breakfast item that's better. Sonic breakfast is low quality, wendy's is actually pretty good imo but it's really greasy and makes me feel degenerate.

Yeah, they were good.

I think it just gets a bad rap because people compare it to non-fast food pico, whereas with everything else at Taco Bell people just think, "it's fast food, dood; it's completely different than the taqueria down the street and shouldn't be compared".

>How pathetic do you have to be to get drunk when you're not at home?

Surely if anything getting drunk alone at home is more pathetic than drinking at a bar or party
At least there's some social element involved and you're not just getting blitzed because you can't cope with living

Never had taco bell because I'm a bong, but they opened one in the next city over. I've got something I need to do there next week, is it worth popping in and giving it a try? it doesn't look amazing but my experience with mexican food is basically making some enchiladas occasionally

I know it's not authentic mexican food, that's fine

Get whatever $5 box they have. If you like cheese and seasoned ground beef you’ll be in heaven

I am glad to be in NJ, you can get a freshly baked everything bagel with bacon egg and cheese for 4 bucks. Find a local deli, you can get way better quality for your money

There's one near me in Australia. Probably the only one in NSW. It's very mediocre, the gooey cheese in the Crunchwrap is unpleasant, and it's not even a cheap fast food option. Their pricing here is as high as better Mexican franchises, which are all fairly expensive for what you get. The waiting time is also unfavourable, as the lines tend to be surprisingly long.

But there's also something addictive about it, and I go out of my way to have some once a month even though I regret it every time. The only thing I'll never eat there are the chips, which are just awful.

My expectations are low, I know tacos are basically ground beef in a shell with some raw veggies on top, nothing amazing

I like burgers, so I assumed a different configuration of the ingredients would be okay at least

Yeah it doesn't look cheap but it's still affordable. If this thread is anything to go off the appeal is buying like 7 things for $10

OP is actually cheap as fuck, and almost exclusively buys value menu items and LTO deals, while abusing cheap/free modifications and redeeming rewards points for free items. Whatever you do, don't buy a combo meal; those are way overpriced for what you get.

It’s honestly really difficult to recommend a “must try” list for someone who’s never had Taco Bell before, especially a foreigner. While the general quality is miles beyond something like, say, McDonald’s, the quality control is Russian roulette tier. I’d say out of 5 average orders spanning 3 different locations, 3 will be average, one will be spot on and overloaded, and one will be tiny with a few things missing/messed up, or otherwise low quality/effort. As I’ve been eating Taco Bell somewhat regularly over the past few years, and hearing other anons’ thoughts on the matter, it’s also occurred to me that different people – all of whom say they occasionally enjoy the late night, drunken Taco Bell run - have vastly different ideas of what’s good. I don’t know what the (assuredly limited) bongistan menu looks like, but these days I’d say the best value, with caveats, is the $10 (7.69 monopoly monies) Taco & Burrito Cravings Pack; pic related. It comes with four 5 Layer Burritos – my personal favorite menu item, somehow still on the menu – and four basic beef tacos, which come hard shell by default. They raised the price of the 5 Layers gradually by ~$1 (~0.77 monopoly monies) a couple years ago, which was a big hit, relative to how little we knew about how bad things were going to get.

The one thing I would universally recommend is to get all burritos grilled; it doesn’t cost extra and makes a world of difference. I add onions and red sauce, which are also free at most locations on this side of the pond. I get my tacos soft and fresco, which removes the half ounce (14 monopoly monies) of (often stale) processed, shredded cheese product with their (admittedly low quality) pico de gallo. I would recommend trying a taco, and a hard shell, as it’s kind of their flagship item, but I’m personally not a fan. (And the Doritos tacos are disgusting, overpriced salt bombs, but some people love them, so I don’t even know.) Aside from getting all your burritos grilled, it’s also a necessity to get sauce, and I’ve tried all of them but exclusively use Fire. Try a few, but ask for extra Fire, because it’s objectively the best (none of them are actually spicy). I also don’t drink sugar water, but many people consider Baja Blast a major draw, so try that if it sounds like your thing (Islay whiskey honestly pairs much better). Tonight’s Craving Pack is a little on the light side, as they generally range from 3-4 pounds (1.3-1.8 monopoly monies), but fortunately they tend to only skimp on the tacos, which I like to think of as a mere bonus item.

Mexicans only ever emigrate to USA because they only ever have to walk there, so it doesn't matter.

It's more like a fast food version of Tex-Mex. If he was making enchiladas that's most likely what he already considers "Mexican Food".
