Fast food review

Today’s edition of Fast Food Review is dedicated to Taco Bell’s new Original Chicken Flatbread Sandwich.

Pros: Great prices; they are what fast food prices should be. You can get a combo for $5, something you can’t get at McDonald’s or anywhere else anymore.

Cons: Just like their burrito I had, there’s so much tortilla. I guess you get what you pay for. But instead of doing that, just make smaller tortillas and fool the consumers. This is just blatant robbery with disappointed customers.

I had someone tell me she couldn’t finish her Mexican Pizza it was so bad, which is shocking given that that’s Taco Bell’s go-to choice and a classic item. Is this place cutting back after their “not meat” lawsuit?

As you can tell, I had a bleh experience with things to gripe about. The following story made this all funny.

Every time I get an opportunity to fill out a survey from a receipt with a possible prize, I’ll do it. And I’ll be honest with my feedback. So I gave Taco Bell a piece of my mind, and a couple of weeks later, I get a call about the survey I completed.

A couple of weeks after that and a timely return of a notarized affidavit, and yours truly is a proud owner of an Apple iPad 2, a value of $499. 1) Now you actually know someone who won one of these things and 2) maybe, it’ll encourage you to start doing the same.

But not really because you’re decreasing my chances of winning.

  1. Wow, they really do review everything. Frozen market foods? Hilarious.

  2. Just as a heads up, Bryan. Check out TheImpulsiveBuy.com and GrubGrade.com as references for future food reviews. Or even seriouseats.com and all of its subsidiary pages (pizza, burgers, drinks, etc). As much as I enjoy your writing as always, you know I’m always hungry for more… introspection.

  3. I wanted to compose a small remark so as to appreciate you for these remarkable guidelines you are placing on this website. My extended internet lookup has at the end been compensated with pleasant insight to go over with my two friends. I would suppose that most of us site visitors are really fortunate to dwell in a really good site with many special people with useful tips and hints. I feel very privileged to have seen the site and look forward to so many more fun minutes reading here. Thanks a lot again for a lot of things.

  4. Whoa. Eating fast food does pay off.

    I’m a fan of Taco Bell. But it depends on the location. I find certain ones have better overall quality. But remember that it’s fast food: when it’s bad, it’s disgusting; when it’s good, it’s still nothing special. You’re get what you pay for.
