    Enchiritos (wet burritos) and Bell Burgers bring back some memories... favorites of my dad. I like the Steak Power Menu Bowl ... it's almost healthy

    Don't most people make pinto beans from dried pinto beans?

    During the last year, working from home, I've eaten way more fast food than I ever would have before. There is only so much you can keep in your refrigerator and freezer. Of course, I have dried and canned goods also. I've tried all kinds of things to keep from going out for food, but it still happens more frequently than I'd like.

    At Taco Bell, I've been getting soft tacos upgraded to chicken. Maybe it's marginally better for you, maybe not. Either way, it's pretty tasty.

    There’s a reason I make my own pinto and bav/tepary beans and it’s no comparison to Taco Bell. I wouldn’t bother comparing, because one is either a crop I grew myself or bought, whole and unadulterated. The other is just processed food for mass consumption. I’ll eat both, but TB only if that’s what’s available at the moment.

    The fountains they use share nozzles with different flavors... you have to purge the fountain first or you’ll get a shot of whatever it dispensed last. I have heard horror stories about soda fountain nozzles and their cleanliness in general, but I don’t know anything for certain.

    As far as coke goes, Taco Bell, KFC, and Pizza Hut are subsidiaries of PepsiCo which is why you see combination restaurants and they all sell Pepsi products.

    Taco Bell helped me get through college. Only because I could buy a couple stomach filling bean burritos for less than a buck as I recall. Maybe not a good diet, but for a poor starving student, it was survival food. For an additional 0.50, I would buy the "refried beans" and stir in the free hot sauce.:D

    I have to drive 90 miles to the nearest fast food place now. Yup, I am in a good place.:cool: Of course, grilling brats is probably not a great diet choice either.:rolleyes:

    When I worked at REI in Dallas there were only two places close enough to get to on a 30 min. lunch break:
    Taco Bell
    Subway

    It was a nightmare choosing the same-same everyday.
    But fortune shined and we got a new manager who would take all the bike shop guys on two hour lunch breaks to good restaurants and he would fade the heat for being late coming back from lunch.
    This was 1995. I haven't been back to a TC since, and only once to a Subway.

    If I could I’d pull up to the window and ask for a dozen or do packs of hot sauce. Forget ordering their menu items.
    I do have a soft spot for their hot sauces

    If memory serves, YUM was spun off PepsiCo around the turn of the century. I believe I owned PepsiCo stock and got issued some YUM as well.

    Is that when you only play the bass notes of the burrito?

    I know this makes no sense to me either. I think it is an artifact from the online ordering

    I had assumed only those other people actually bought and ate Taco Bell?

    WRT lettuce in a warm burrito?
    That's like a bag of garbage left out in the sun.

    Taco Bell arrived in my town a couple of years ago. I've tried it twice and didn't really enjoy it either time. It sits in a retail park and there are various other fast food outlets there and it is always, by far, the quietist. Don't know if it'll last much longer.
