How can the TB crew eat that stuff with any decent authentic place in range?? This was 6 bucks all in and delicious

This isnt even an argument worth engaging. Real food all day erryday. Mex style of course, Chihuahua, onion, cilantro, and lime. Lettuce, tomato, and shredded cheddar is a fucking abomination.

I made real tacos at home last night, soaked some chopped habanero in lime for an extra kick.

TB is only an option in an emergency or drunk, or a drunk food emergency.

Time, locations, price, hours, consistency, I could go on

I eat TB for lunch almost every day because I travel for work and the sooner I'm done with lunch the sooner my work day is done, drive thru or bust. Believe me I would sit down for a nice lunch every day (i get an allowance), but TB literally is good to me and I like it.

I never get sick from it, never get the shits, and my physical this year was sparkling. I'll continue to eat the deliciousness and hit up El Faro when Im out drinking.

Also, I'd trust the processed and preservative-filled reheated meat at Taco Bell to not give me diarrhea over a mom and pop taco stand.

Iím with you. Iíve posted my hatred for Taco Bell before. My dog likely eats better quality food.

I stick to authentic Mexican places, which are plentiful in the Chicagoland area (probably more locations than TB) and much better quality for nearly the same price. Plus most places give you chips and salsa for free while you wait.

Taco bell is the slam pig of restaurants. Most times I want to have a nice piece, but every once in a while you want to just go all in, bottom of the barrel, and ride it out.

Where is this? I didn't think it'd be all that hard to find a good Mexican place in Elgin where I don't feel the need to bring a gun. Other than Sammy's on Rt 20 they all look kind of sketchy. Not that sketchy bothers me but I need to find a place where I'd feel ok bringing my wife.

Chicago (forgot name but on Roosevelt), I'm by Sammies and hit that sometimes, Carminas on Randal is good but spendy, coronados south Elgin on Randal is good, Los burritos3 on randall/64 is good and open early.

When you get in Chicago though it's like another level of goodness for food in general.

Piss on Taco Bell

To Hell with Chipotle and the flesh eating disease associated with that buzzard meat.

I love authentic Mexican food. I also love Taco Bell. To me comparing Taco Bell to real Mexican food is no different than comparing Pizza to soup. They are different foods. Sometimes I'm hungry for Taco Bell but not hungry for legit Mexican food.

It's not Mexican food. It's just good tasting fast food. Stop comparing it to other food and enjoy it for what it is.
