    Well, I'm sure someone other than myself will find this amusing.

    It shouldn’t be that hard. They really defecated the bed when they removed their most popular menu items for the sake of “streamlining the menu”

    This is what the ordering experience at taco bell ought to be:

    The Beefy Tostada's good, but its totally worth the extra three cents to get the Enchirito instead. Black beans and ranch dressing were NOT options.

    Haven't really went back since they removed Mexican pizza from the menu.

    It’s Taco Bell. The house beans are a reconstituted powder and probably why it’s not a common side. I’d get the black beans every time.

    They should streamline it back to what it was in the 70s: taco, tostada, burrito (specify green or red), Bellbeefer (kind of like a sloppy joe), Enchirito, pinto beans. That was the entire menu until they added the the Burrito Supreme and Beefy Tostada around 1975 or so.

    They lost me locally when their newest restaurant advertised "BREAKFAST", but the silly sons of bitches don't even open until 9:00 a.m.

    That's brunch, Señor.

    That ain't breakfast.

    :(

    Taco Bell is better than syrup of ipecac.

    Not true... the beans are made from dehydrated beans. They're real beans.

    I pull up and stare at their menu forever trying to figure out how to order what I want, not the combo they want me to order. To me it is just the most confusing of all drive-up menus.

    There’s an online petition!

    The combo meal pizza and tacos was my go to. I’ve not been back since, either.

    There was one like that in Tallahassee that I remember eating at, at least as young as 4-5 years old. It looked almost exactly like that. The building had the arches too. It got upgraded a few times and then finally closed ages ago. The original building was around up until around 10 years ago, but it was torn down to build something new, which is typical of Tallahassee.

    Where I work we sometimes doordash from this Mexican place that has a burrito with add ons. You can add cheese for $2 or you can add lettuce for $2 but you can't add both.

    Everything at Taco Bell is "real" enough, but confused on the defense of dehydrated powder beans. Making a fast food order online and expecting flawless execution? :confused:

    That doesn't even make sense. First of all, take the extra money and make it with both since you have both. Second, I get cheese without lettuce, but not lettuce without cheese. I've never been to a Mexican restaurant anywhere and ordered a taco, for example, that didn't come with cheese AND lettuce.

    "Just throw some random crap in a bag and send me on my way"

    Its been a long time.
    But the last time I tried to peruse a menu like that I walked out.

    Well... i may have paused to watch the assembly line for a moment before leaving...

    I remember the original Jack in the box. The stuff must have been pre made. Just toss it in a bag. I didnt care.

    Nacho fries were deserving of a MacArthur Genius Award.

    I don't see them anymore but there were a few combination Taco Bell/ Pizza Huts in Northern Virginia.

    After a not-too-late gig, I'd go thru the Drive-thru and get a Supreme Personal Pan Pizza, a hard taco, and a Diet Pepsi- pure junk heaven driving home!

    ( I know this is petty, but I never go to Taco Bell, as they serve Pepsi vs. Coke, and I just don't like Pepsi in a fountain mix- it tastes flat and 'sugar soapy" to me)

    No taco salad, no Mexican pizza, no grilled stuffed burrito. Someone needs needs to be de-hired.
