Taco Bell Going Upscale?!

  1. How... peculiar. But, you know, some of it looks interesting. I think I'll let someone else on the board be the guinea pig, though....

    1. Maybe they can be the Stinking Rose of Mexican?

      1. Yup. Imagine that. I still have to try their breakfast stuff first though.... And I'd love to know how much they will charge for a lobster taco, and/or what *kind* of *lobster* is going in it, and how itty bitty it is.... Lucky for me, there's one right down the street. Sometimes during the school year my kids have me going thru the drive thru a bit too often.....

          The lobster is probably fake... like Krab is to crab. I think they call their lobster... LABster.

              Norm: Yeah, Cliffy had himself the "Ton O' T-Bone". For less than four bucks you get 24 ounces of USDA Choice "bef".

              Cliff: Bef? No, you mean beef.

              Norm: Beef? Don't be ridiculous, Cliffy. That stuff is "bef". You see it's a Hungry Heifer trademark for a processed, synthetic – what – meat-like substance.

              Cliff: Ah, no.

              Norm: What do you expect for four bucks? You see me complainin' about the "loobster"?

              I'm curious about the breakfast burritos at the regular bell. I like the hard shell tacos supreme

                I'm a glutton for... Well.. I'm just a glutton. I personally love the breakfast crunchwrap. If they do the potatoes crispy enough like the Bell I go to, it's pretty tasty!

                  Solid. I like the idea of those McDonald's type hashbrown things inside.

              1. This works better on the LA Board. O well.
                It still could be a national story IF it catches on. Otherwise, limited to Huntington Beach, CA.
