Best Chain Tacos

Bob Brooks | Sep 28, 2006 11:14 PM

Today, on a silly whim, I tried the 2 for a buck tacos at Burger King and Jack in the Box, virtually back to back.

The Jack's tacos had a very crisp and flavorful shell, with a generous amount of crisp lettuce. The filling was not unpleasant but lacked any bite since there was no salsa.

The BK tacos had nicely crisp but less tasty shells. The filling was more substantial and had a nice spicey hit of salsa. There was not enough lettuce, however, and the cheese was in the form of a slice, rather than grated bits, which was not so appealing.

Obviously, this is pure junk food, but it was fun. I would also have to say that both were better than the last taco I had at Taco Bell, where, while the filling there was okay, the shell tasted stale.

Would enjoy hearing about other adventures in the world of fast food tacos.
