I knew I was in store for a punishingly long night, covering a meeting in Wilmette. So I figured, why not tempt fate and gorge on Taco Bell beforehand?
Ordered three hardshell tacos and one beef burrito — the simple beef burrito that costs $1.59 and isn’t even on their menu anymore.
I really don’t like Taco Bell. I should know better than this. If I’m eating at Taco Bell, the only thing worth ordering is a chicken chalupa. These tacos have more sour cream than meat in them. And the burrito, which features a soupy mixture of beef, cheese and diced onion, is satisfying in the grossest possible way.
No, I’m more of a Taco John’s kind of guy (if we’re talking fast food chain restaurants, that is…). There just aren’t any Taco John’s in the Chicago area.
