Let’s revisit Taco Bell!
Taco Bell is a chain of fast food restaurants specializing in Mexican-inspired dishes such as tacos, burritos, quesadillas, and nachos. Founded in 1962 in Downey, California, the restaurant now has over 8,000 locations all over the world.
There are numerous locations all over Wichita and the surrounding area. The one I visited (not pictured above) was at 4000 N. Maize Road in Maize, KS.
I ordered nacho fries, a Mexican pizza and a mix of soft and hard tacos.
My meal started with the nacho fries. I’ve had these before and enjoyed them, but on this visit there was little seasoning on the fries, which it what really makes them good. Otherwise, the fries left a lot to be desired.
Moving on, I had the Mexican Pizza. By default, this was probably the highlight of my meal. I should say, the Taco Bell had maybe a tiny bit of seasoned beef. This was mostly refried beans and cheese.
Things went severely down hill after my fries and Mexican pizza. The tacos I ordered appeared to be veggie tacos with a very small side of beef. I swear, it looked like they took a small spoonful of beef and tried to stretch that as far as they could and call it a taco. Keep in mind, I didn’t just order a soft taco, but a soft taco supreme that included sour cream. Look at the picture below, and let’s play some Where’s Waldo with the sour cream. I think an employee found an even smaller spoon for the sour cream which was watered down.
A regular soft taco at Taco Bell is $1.69. I paid an extra dollar ($2.69) for a SUPREME version, and am not sure what I received for that added dollar. This was laughable, pathetic, and highway robbery all at once. My soft taco supreme was the absolute poorest excuse for a $2.69 taco I’ve ever seen in my entire life. It was so bad that the restaurant should truly be ashamed of themselves.
For comparison, here’s what is advertised on the mobile app:
Here’s some more Where’s Waldo. Please tell me how much beef you see.
Taco Bell may be the fast food taco restaurant to offer the least amount of meat in their food.
My visit to Taco Bell involved the restaurant cutting as many corners as possible from less seasoning and meat. Just an absolutely horrid experience.
But there’s always something good to take away with any restaurant visit, and I wanted to leave this on a positive note. I did not have diarrhea later that day. God is good!
