Every once in a while, fast food chain marketing gets so wild they add an item to the menu that makes no sense for their brand. Burger King did this the other day, and I had to give it a try to see if it was worth your time and money.
Burger King, for some reason unbeknownst to me, added a one dollar taco to their menu.
So why did this fast food giant add a taco of all things to their menu? I couldn’t tell you, but I can tell you if it was any good because I went out and tried it.
The Burger King Taco sounds like an insane gimmick, but were they worth the try for a dollar.
I went into this culinary excursion with very low standards, and thankfully I had no expectations because this was one of the worst things I’ve ever tried to eat.
Just going through the Burger King drive-thru to order this taco felt like a sin in itself, once I open the bag I thought I might’ve belonged in jail or something for such a crime against humanity.
It was one of the saddest looking pieces of food I’ve ever seen. The shell was discolored and soggy, there was only one or two big pieces of lettuce, the beef was greasy and leaking through the shell, and there was a smell to it reminiscent of someone who hasn’t taken a shower in a few moons.
I bought two tacos just to make sure I was giving it a fair shot, and I could hardly get through the first one. It was that awful.
The shell felt like shards of glass in my mouth, and seemed like it had been sitting out on the shelf for about three weeks. It was as stale as could be.
The beans literally had the consistency and flavor of a low-grade cat food. I’d know.
The extremely small mound of meat there was, was flavorless and greasy.
I was able to find a few shreds of lettuce, and a few cubes of tomato but they were unproportionally large for the small, stale shell.
Don’t forget it was topped off with a nice mild hot sauce, one that tasted of metal to add another great dimension to this culinary masterpiece.
All in all, this taco was a disgrace, and I feel like I should be persecuted for even having tried it. Lock me up, throw away the key. Even though it was for important research purposes.
I’m not sure what the thought process was here when this decision was made to put tacos in Burger Kings all around the country, but they did not put much effort into making it a decent product.
This seemed like a gimmick coming into it, and it didn’t disappoint whatsoever. The Burger King taco is one of the worst things I’ve ever eaten in my entire life, and I would not recommend it to my worst enemy.
Verdict: Horrifically Horrendous
