Taco Bell getting rid of Mexican Pizza - I am outraged

Recommended Posts

I don't have Taco Cobana to fall back on here. Del Taco is somehow actually worse than Taco Bell. So this hits close to home.

I actually do love me a drunken Mexican Pizza every 5 or 6 months. And the only thing my kids like there are shredded chicken tacos/burritos. I guess we'll be eating more Arby's.

I admit this is a sad development, but there's no need for suicide.

Repeated for truth.  Bring back the Enchirito and watch all our society's problems disappear.

The Cheesy Gordita Crunch welcomes you with open arms and empty bowels

Another touchstone of human achievement. Best specialty menu item to be made a full time menu item IMO

It's off the menu, but I think you can still get it.  At least that was the case the last time I made the questionable decision to hit a Taco Bell, which admittedly was many moons ago.

It was always about the shell, the sauce was terrible and they could never understand "no tomatoes" ... I'm sad too, but haven't eaten TB in a couple years,  so fuck em.

I have weird food hangups so I don't eat a lot of these items (no white sauce ever, no creamy sauce, no liquid cheese etc) but yeah you can still get most of these items by ordering in a specific way. Google it. TB menu is highly customizable.

Anybody ever go to Taco Bell, and there are some Mexico Mexican guys in line? And you have to stop yourself from asking them, "Hey man, do you know what place this is?"

Last time I went the double decker taco was off the menu as well.

 

I'm gonna out myself as a taco bell patron every once in a while.  A version of the double-decker is back but instead of refried beans they use nacho cheese.

I get Taco Bell during every Texas home game at Memorial Stadium, and that's really the only time in a year I do.

You can make a double decker taco with a bean burrito and a crispy beef taco wrapped inside it.

I’ve ordered a double decker taco in the last 2 months. It may not have been on the menu but they made it.

How many combinations of stray animal ground meat, expired canned refried beans, and fake cheese can there be?

Roughly 400 million.

They lost me when they removed the meximelt.  fuckers.

There was a hack where you could order a cheesy roll up and add pico and ground beef. But now they are getting rid of pico too. Wtf.

When we first moved to the states I found a beef meximelt, mexican pizza, 7 layer burrito (with no SC), and double decker taco were my jam. Now they're all gone. Fuckers killed my fresh to america youth

7lauer burrito was the only thing I could eat from the bell.  Now there's nothing I want.  Still get my kids bean burritos when we're In a rush and I feel like being an asshole to them.

I remember when they introduced the Taco Bell gong on the screen during football games. Pissed me off so much I swore I'd never eat there again. But during every late night drunk walk back to my apt from the Hole in the Wall or the Showdown, I'd cave. Every fucking time I'd cave.

Taco Cabana sucks now too....

When I moved to TX many moons ago, and visited a Cobono for the first time, and saw that they sold alcohol, my simple midwest brain basically exploded. Between that and a gas station that sold BBQ it was like I was on a different planet.

I think it’s Jim Gaffagan who has a bit about this. I think it’s a rube going into a Mexican restaurant asking “what’s in a taco?” “Tortilla, seasoned meat, cheese.” “Well, what’s in a burrito?” Etc etc

There’s a lot of truth to that especially in a shit “Mexican “ restaurant like Taco Bell. I keep predicting that they are going to run out of “new” menu items to make with the same 5 or so core ingredients. Adding Fritos and Dorito seasoning bought them a few years but that’s run it’s course.

If you get that generic it works for every food type. 

American:

hamburger - meat, bread, vegetables, sauce, cheese

Hot dog - meat, bread, vegetables, sauce

Pizza - meat, bread, vegetables, sauce, cheese

Etc

I used to do the same thing with Crystal's in E TN, but for different reasons.  Every time I'd decide to hit that shit place up at 1AM, I eat, get sick, then swear it off for eternity.  Guess where I was 2 weeks later after a late game?  Yep.  Rinse, repeat.

It’s been all downhill since they discontinued the Volcano Taco with Lava sauce. 

the original volcano taco from 20 year ago or the rebrand from about 5 years ago?

OG

i'm pretty sure that was just a regular taco that they added the new, free fire sauce packets to, and charged extra for.

Then I am wrong. The one that had the “lava sauce”. Orange spicy cheese sauce. Shit was hot. You could also add local sauce to any other item. 
 

It also came with spicy shell and pre-dates the Doritos shells.

I’m outraged that people think anything at Taco Bell is edible.  

People that have a buzz and just want to eat something.
