    I CAN WORK WITH THIS.

    Shwaip, both of those are food court stores that are open during business hours only. On top of that, they only have limited menus.

    SO YEAH.
    Spoken like a true person who can't eat taco bell anymore.

    I cannot wait to go back to Detroit and order a sack of 10 from White Castle.

    There are ladies at EPIC, and they like to go shopping and do girly things in addition to nerdy things.

    I hunger for Taco Bell as much as anyone, but since you moved so close, go get tamales from Evie's in Mexicantown. So much better than the bell.

    Allen, my girlfriend doesn't really participate in Expo, but she always has fun, and as Wags said, there are other things to do.

    Wait, so you want to bring your wife and a baby?
  • Bad news, it seems the Doritos Loco Taco has replaced the Beefy Crunch Burrito....it is no more.

    Taco Bell giveth and taketh away. No love lost over here.

    Am I the only one who thinks Taco Bell is some sort of crazy taco-based cult?

  • PirateNinjaPirateNinja Mountains Icrontian
    I can't believe you guys like Taco Bell so much, but seeing as you do I'm sorry that this is an issue. I could always make you guys tacos when I visit if you want something authentic and delicious.
  • primesuspectprimesuspect HumanGarbageDisposal Detroit, MI Icrontian
    The new house is only a couple of miles away from Mexicantown, which has a massive concentration of Mexican people, touristy Mexican restaurants, and so-authentic-it-hurts Mexican restaurants for the locals.

    It's definitely not even remotely at ALL about authenticity. It has nothing to do with tacos or Mexican food. It's about super salty, totally American fast food.

    When you want Taco Bell you most certainly do not want Mexcian. You want Taco Bell. Nothing else in the world tastes like that Taco Bell meat. Sometimes you just gotta have it.
  • shwaipshwaip bluffin' with my muffin Icrontian
    Also, for those of you who don't know, you can buy taco bell seasoning packets for making your own tacos. It's definitely not exactly the same as getting real taco bell, but it's my favorite mix by far:

    This. Taco Bell is not real Mexican, and real Mexican does not satisfy the craving for Taco Bell.

    Even Del Taco does not satisfy when attempting to use as a quick substitute.
  • primesuspectprimesuspect HumanGarbageDisposal Detroit, MI Icrontian
    That's because Del Taco tries to be authentic and you just can't fake that. Taco Bell makes absolutely no overtures towards being "Mexican" food.
  • UPSLynxUPSLynx The Dean of Computer Graphics Redwood City, CA Icrontian
    We actually had a long discussion about this on Twitter. It's never been about authenticity (Though I LOVE Mexican food). It's about cheap, delicious Americanized food. Taco Bell is the best of the best. It's my favorite place to eat for so many reasons.
  • GHoosdumGHoosdum Orange, CA Icrontian
    One time CB ordered a chalupa at an authentic Mexican restaurant because someone had erroneously informed him that it was like Taco Bell's chalupa.

    Hilarity ensued.

    I thought that it would at least be somewhat similar, like the same general composition or arrangement of ingredients or something. I mean the Taco bell taco is not a mexican taco, but it's meat and cheese in a shell... Nope. A chalupa is aparently something completely different, and not at all tasty.

    All I know is now I want a beef and potato burrito smothered in hot sauce AND IT'S ALL ICRONTIC'S FAULT. I don't have sufficient points to splurge on TBell today damnit.
  • primesuspectprimesuspect HumanGarbageDisposal Detroit, MI Icrontian
    The Dorito Taco Loco is 15g of carbs. That means I can eat two comfortably, three if I was really desperate.

    Moral of the story: Low-carb dieters can enjoy the insanity of the Dorito taco, even if it's just one.
  • CBCB Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ @TheButterflyman Icrontian
    Tried it today. It's pretty good. Also tried Taco Beall's steak while I was there. It's not so good.
  • primesuspectprimesuspect HumanGarbageDisposal Detroit, MI Icrontian
    Agreed. Their steak anything is the weak side of the TB menu.

    Bitches don't know 'bout my steak grilled stuffed burrito XXL. It's extra beefy.
  • bjbroderickbjbroderick Clinton Township, MI
    I understand the whole Taco Bell is not mexican food argument. I myself am addicted to baja sauce. But at the same time, if I lived closer to a 5 guys I would not go to Burger King, if you know what I'm saying.

    Except I am addicted to BK mayo...

    I hate to do it, but I'd argue that Del Taco does not at all try to act authentic. They are fast food and they know it. Anystuff, I'll try to take everyone on a taco bell run this year, sounds like a blast. I like their food too, just not as much I think.
  • CrazyJoeCrazyJoe Winter Springs, FL Icrontian
    The Doritos Loco Taco is delicious... I partook of some last night...
  • Church4252Church4252 K-Pop authority™, Gundam Meister Madison Heights, MI Icrontian
    I tried the Doritos Loco Taco and its good.
  • UPSLynxUPSLynx The Dean of Computer Graphics Redwood City, CA Icrontian
    Last night, I created something wonderful. A Cheesy Gordita Crunch with a Doritos Locos shell inside. Your body is not ready.

    I'm actually not a fan of the Dorito taco but then again I don't care much for Doritos. Gonna stick with Volcano burritos/tacos.

    That's their slogan for 2013. That's the new version of "Yo quiero Taco Bell"

    That looks so delicious! Let me put it down on my to-do list for next trip over there.

    Unfortunately, this wonder is their monthly special. By the time you get here, it'll be off the menu :(

  • BlackHawkBlackHawk Bible music connoisseur There's no place like 127.0.0.1 Icrontian
    I honestly still don't get this fervor over Taco Bell. Is it because I'm culturally close to being Mexican or something? I get it, it's cheap but it's not really all that good. It's like Italians going ape shit over Pizza Hut.
  • IlriyasIlriyas Magician, Sunbro, Grossly Incandescent Toronto, Ontario Icrontian
    Eh you're not alone I don't get it either. Honestly I've never found the food to be particularly enticing although I've heard the argument that that's due to the fact that Canadian Taco Bell sucks.
  • ThraxThrax Professional Shill, Pokémaster, Watch Slut Austin, TX Icrontian
    Both of you are going to Hell.

    there is no hell worse than not enjoying taco bell.
  • IlriyasIlriyas Magician, Sunbro, Grossly Incandescent Toronto, Ontario Icrontian
    I'm sorry but I just don't understand what makes it so good, I mean sure I've only eaten there...likely twice but I never found it to be any more enjoyable than most other kinds of fast food.
  • ThraxThrax Professional Shill, Pokémaster, Watch Slut Austin, TX Icrontian
    Canadian Taco Bell is fucking crap compared to American Taco Bell. Your Taco Bells should be ashamed of themselves.
  • IlriyasIlriyas Magician, Sunbro, Grossly Incandescent Toronto, Ontario Icrontian
    Granted, though that relates back to my prior statement I guess I'll eat real Taco Bell at EPIC
  • colacola the dick man himself Right behind you Icrontian
    We'll teach you how to into taco bell.
