Think outside the bun!

I've been on a bit of a bad taste... err... taco bell rampage lately. Eating it, two.. three times a week. To be honest though, I'm growing tired of my old stand in... a soft taco, a crunch wrap supreme and a bean burrito.

My all time favorite is the nachos bell grande with jalapenos! But oh man, is it a bad idea.



It’s mucho grande all right (that’s “much big” in Taco Bell’s version of Spanish). Weight (18 ounces)—just over a pound. Calories (1,320)—almost 70 percent of a day’s worth. Total fat (82 grams), saturated fat (25 grams), and sodium (2,670 milligrams)—each well over a day’s worth. Unfortunately, the price is anything but grande, so there’s little (except your good sense) to stop you from digging in.
So what's your favorite taco bell menu item? Post an image if you can google one!

the 99 cent bean burrito especial! it's awesome

i usually get two and keep one for a snack another time. oh, and i add rice to them (more balanced protein). i try to make sure there's no onions also, though sometimes i don't bother.

the sauce on it is awesome

i used to go to one of the tb's in nyc with my roommate and get a grande meal. 10 bean burritos, the mexican pizza and the nachos. he'd take the latter two, and half the burritos... people HATED us there. especially being in line after us. hahahaha

within the city, the price difference in the grande meal from one block's tb to another was like 1.50. weird

I just remembered that it has been almost 5 years since I last ate at a Taco Bell outlet.

I usually just pick the cheapest priced items and go with that. None of this combo business with me.

Dang it, now I am getting hungry again and the price of food on campus is pretty pricey.

it only sounds good after the bars close and every place else is closed. Nothing like waking up w/ a hangover and nacho cheese all over your clothes.

Hey cr2sh, which one do u frequent? i got one a coupla' bocks away on watervilet and smithville.

it's sad how much i'm posting here, but oh well

the grilled stuft used to be the best for sure. and i still miss it. but the especial is so much more food for your money, and it has that good sauce. if they dropped the gsb down by a buck or so, i'd be all over it!

Man, I've also been on a Taco Bell binge lately. My favorite is the baja chicken chalupa. I simply CAN NOT have enough! I usually eat at least 6 of them a week ( 2 chalupa and a taco meal, 3 times a week )!

O...M...G!!! :eek:

I usually prefer the Grilled Stuffed Burrito - Chicken style. Expensive little devil but it keeps me to one item and tastes so damn good. I still can only stomach TB after a long night of drinking, perhaps 2 in the morning or so. All that booze helps digest all those fake contents :D

;) tried to be subtle.............. the fire sauce and burritos would make that interesting

ps. i have no problem digesting the food without the booze. though i don't eat the meat which is possibly the worst portion of it (while all the rest is still awful)

I just bought a place on Wayne Avenue.. so I tend to go to the University of Dayton Taco Bell. Yours isn't too far from me, I've stopped there before while I was over at that guitar shop.

That is why the only thing I will eat is the chicken, otherwise I get no meat. I refuse to eat the ground beef, or whatever the f*** they are passing as meat these days :rolleyes:

I used to go to TB, but now I've switched to a local mexican place. Its just as quick and I like the fact that I'm eating actual food, but its about $6 bucks a meal, so I only go 2-4 times a month.

Empanadas!

As far as real food goes, I think it has to go to either the crunchwrap supreme or to the spicy chicken burrito.
