Taco Tuesday

Is Taco Bell’s basic crunchy taco all its hyped up to be? Let’s find out.

Let’s start with the bad: the taco is boring. There isn’t much to it, it’s just a taco. It’s comparable to what you would get on taco Tuesday, it’s nothing special but at least its food. It has all the taco essentials: meat, lettuce, cheese, and any other topping you desire. The problem is that there’s no wow factor; nothing stands out but that’s ok. Not everyone can be the best, the basic taco sets the standard for what is good and what is terrible for Taco Bell. In other words, the basic taco is the working class of the taco bell menu. We wouldn’t have Taco Bell if they didn’t have the basic taco. That means no crunch wrap supremes, no Fritos burritos, and no nacho bell grande. 

Now let’s just get this out of the way: yes, it tastes good. Taco Bell was built on the taco, it’s in the name for crying out loud. Besides that it’s a taco, it has unlimited potential, fully customizable. Here’s a free tip, the next one will cost you. Put the Taco Bell hot sauce on the taco. You’re doing yourself a disservice if you don’t do this. This brings it up a whole ranking for me.

Next on the list, the price is dirt cheap. At a dollar forty-nine, you get an arsenal of flavor. Grab a couple of them and it’ll keep you fed till you get off your door greeter job at Sam’s Club. Alright, I know I said the next tip would cost you, but I’m feeling generous. Tip, wear cargo shorts or pants. the extra pockets will allow you to store the tacos and you can eat them throughout the day. You can use this tip for any food that’ll fit in your pocket whether that’s tater tots or like I said tacos. 

Alright, time for the rating. I give the Taco Bell basic crunchy taco a 7 out of 10. It may be boring but it packs some serious punch. If you don’t know what you want from Taco Bell then order the taco. You know what you’re gonna get and it’s gonna taste good. Old reliable is what I would call it.
