Outside of the United States you can find many fast food restaurants. KFC and Pizza Hut often seem to surpass McDonald’s in their abundance. However, one particular fast food restaurant you will never see overseas is Taco Bell. When I would come home from a tour that would be my first stop. I needed that seven-layer burrito, Just like Primus mentioned in the song, “Wynona’s Big Brown Beaver.”
Now, everybody knows that when you get the munchies, there is plenty of good food to go after. If you haven’t checked out our article on our favorite the munchies, you can do so right here.
What we were talking about is lunch and dinner. That begs the question, can Taco Bell be for breakfast, and if so how much is an acceptable amount? I should clarify that there are many options that are traditional breakfast fare available at Taco Bell. Everyone loves a good breakfast burrito. But that is not what I’m talking about when I say Taco Bell for breakfast. I mean can you eat a double-decker bean burrito taco, or a plate of pump action cheese nachos for breakfast?
Before I get into that answer, I just wanted to let you know that Taco Bell is not sponsoring this post. We have received no compensation whatsoever for discussing this. Not that we wouldn’t take a 12-pack of crunchy beef tacos. For fans of action movies in the 90s, it’s worth remembering that in the supposed future, Taco Bell was the only restaurant that survives the “franchise wars.” From Demolition Man, Sylvester Stallone and Wesley Snipes are not to be outdone by MTV Sports’ very own Dan Cortese and a rather young and attractive Sandra Bullock. This may have been when Taco Bell peaked in it’s popularity.
So on a recent Saturday afternoon I attempted to put this to rest. It was during the in-between hours of lunch and breakfast, that I had a mad craving to fill. I needed something to eat and I needed it right then. There was plenty of choices available; I could have gone to Arby’s, McDonald’s, Wendy’s, Starbucks, or any number great food trucks. But, I knew I wanted to make a, ‘Run for the Border‘. While that may seem a bit racist in today’s hypersensitive culture it should be remembered that this was once Taco Bell’s famous slogan.
Armed with a crisp $20 bill, the free Wi-Fi password, and an in-depth knowledge of the Taco Bell menu, I descended into this pseudo-Mexican cuisine restaurant. Unlike the clueless contestants on Nick Arcade, I know exactly what to get when I stepped up to the counter. That would be my typical order – a double-decker taco, a crunchy beef taco, a bean burrito, a spicy chicken soft taco, and an order of nachos. This was my breakfast of champions in the morning. Not to be confused with the Vonnegut novel.
To save you the misery of discussing this any longer, I’ll just get to the point.
I proceeded to eat the shit out of this order. And it was delicious. I think that pretty much answers the question, “Can Taco Bell be an acceptable breakfast food?” The answer is a resounding yes. I got in my truck and proceeded with my daily activities. As with every Taco Bell experience…. I proceeded to shit my brains out approximately two hours later.
I hope you find this helpful and if you help and home perhaps you can try Taco Bell for breakfast. Now watch these two cute chicks each try to shove 18 Taco Bell tacos into their skinny little bodies.
