Aside from working my 8-5 job and raising a family, this has mostly been a full-time hobby that’s extremely time-consuming and costly but still a joy to do. If you would like to help support the site in anyway, your patronage would be greatly appreciated.

It’s been a long time since I last had tacos from Burger King. I remember being in college and swinging by there for their $1 crispy tacos. At that time in my life, I thought they were the greatest thing ever especially after a night of drinking.

The tacos would pop back up around 2010 but would then disappear. It’s not unheard of for fast food burger joints to sell tacos. Jack In The Box has been doing it for years and is actually one of their best sellers oddly enough.

For $1, you get a taco with seasoned beef, shredded cheddar cheese, lettuce, and taco sauce, all encased in a crispy tortilla shell. Here’s what the promotional picture looks like:

They don’t look half bad and since I was wanting a little bit of nostalgia, I gave them a try. Of course with any fast food promotional item, ads can be deceiving….actually 100% deceiving. Here’s what I received.

Of all the ingredients listed earlier, there was less seasoned beef than any other item. Should I be surprised? Not at all.

They were certainly crispy, fried a little too long and probably the ideal drunk food after five hours of drinking; could have been better had there been a little more protein inside or even anything else. There was also no shortage of grease. All I received was a crispy shell with lettuce, maybe five pieces of cheese and a teaspoon of meat. The Burger King taco sauce was savory and had good flavor but that was only on one side of the taco.

I had somewhat high hopes for the tacos. I thought they would bring back a little nostalgia, but instead it brought back just a overly fried crispy greasy shell. Burger King, you let me down.

I could say I’m done with fast food gimmick items but who am I kidding.

Happy Dining,
Eddy
