    Where's the beef?

    Taco Bell meat? Beef, says firm. Filling, says suit. - CSMonitor.com

    Say what? Taco Bell's "ground beef" filling is only 36% beef? Does knowing this make you think differently about Taco Bell?

    Re: Where's the beef?

    Anybody that thought that taco bell meat met any HIGH quality standards is well . . . . . an idiot

    With that said unless this lawsuit uncovers something else no this will have zero impact on me eating there.

    I hope people don't think McDonalds is top quality beef either lol

    Re: Where's the beef?

    I like taco bell,although I do find their Steak Cantina Tacos to be bland. I will stick to the mom and pop hole in the wall Mexican restaurants for Mexican tacos or I will just grill a steak and chop up some cilantro,onion and radishes and warm up some corn tortillas .

    It should have been obvious to anybody who spent more than 2 seconds looking at their taco while eating it. However, their current "meat" formula was yummy.

    Vegans should be happy this. Perhaps one day due to corporate penny pinching while trying to maintain taste consistency there might one day be a delicious meat substitute that is cheap to produce and taste just as good as the real thing.

    People like you think you're so ****ing smart and above everyone else. Did you know it was 36% beef, Einstein? No, you sure as hell didn't. So don't be so ****ing smug.

    I would hardly say that Taco Bell "tastes just as good as the real thing". It's a reasonable form of substitution in that it won't kill you, won't often make you sick, and kinda tastes a bit like the real thing. But it's not just as good.

    Also that new thing they have with those ****ty chips in them...it's disgusting. The chips get all soggy and crap and ewwww. Also their fire sauce is super lame.

    Sounds like you're one of those people who thought it was real meat that Centrist was referring to earlier

    I did think it was standard beef, and what is wrong with that assumption? Sounds like you are one of the people I'm talking about.
