    Torchy's should definitely not be considered the standard bearer for good tacos.

    Perhaps chimichangas are the opiate of the masses

    Zig used to run one but I believe it closed due to Covid. He was my go to for knowledge on recipes, so it kinda sucks.

    BTW- Mexican Pizza over everything. F- you Taco Bell. That and the Double Decker were the ONLY reasons I ever stopped by there. LonghornFan not be stopping by ever again. Freaking taco's are all shell, your bean burritos are now all tortilla and your prices are insane for shitty snack food. Buy Bye. I'll stick with my Taqueria Los Reyes for Tacos, and for all other Tex Mex still down with El Ray, El Tiempo or the orig NInfa's. Also so down with the fajita nachos at Johnny Tamale Beltway South and 45.

    I'm not sure Taco Bell qualifies as Mexican food. I'm not sure Taco Bell qualifies as food.

    Agreed. I just wanted to unleash some anger about the Mexican Pizza. It's been part of my digestive system since I was in high school. To take it away just made me flip.

    Tacos for me. I like to be able to see what I'm eating, plus they're simpler. Sometime about 10 years ago burritos went crazy with all the stuff they put in them.

    I sometimes prefer tostada for the different texture profile, biting into exposed vs. enveloped ingredients.

    You do sacrifice practically, have a potentially messier balancing task.

    Talking down on Taco Bell is like talking down on hot dogs. Yall talking down on America? Yall need to get real and admit Taco Bell is delicious, even if that meat is recycled, seasoned Amazon cardboard shipping boxes.

    I'm sure you have figured it out by now as well, but the trick is to start with the onions and peppers first, then top with the cheese, put the meat on top of all of that and you have your base. Next is rice and beans. Rice first, let it splatter to the side or wherever it lands, it's just for texture anyway. Decent scoop of beans is layered on top. Still a little bit of room now, so here is where it gets tricky... guac is spread on either side of the tortilla away from the other ingredients, salsa is smothered on top like you dgaf, and then you have to be the person that puts double bird fingers up to the other spectators and grab a heaping spoonful of sour cream from the community pile, put it on your appetizer plate, and squeeze a lime quarter or two into it to concoct a makeshift crema. you dip the fajita taco in as you eat, mess be damned.

    With all that said, is it a shock I voted for burritos?

    True. Taco Hell has never let me down. I give birth from my butthole in a consistent range of 2-4 hours after eating.

    Stros are on, but this is a good thing to discuss later.
