You're getting my favorite fast food restaurant. TacoTime. Probably have a couple hundred restaurants, mostly in the Northwest. None in Calif. :mad:

It is not authentic Mexican food. Some folks find it mediocre. Others, like me, are in love with it. I know middle aged folks in SoCal who went to school in Oregon (franchise started there) and this is the first place they go to eat.

The crispy bean burrito, dipped in the house salsa is to die for. I could eat at this place 3 nights a week.

Crappy junk food is the best. It can't be worse than the jack in the box tacos I ate at 2 am, 40 years ago.

I am not surprised you didn't like it.

It's not organic, and it's not for people who eat frogs.

I happen to be a junk food connoisseur.

I call Wendy's, finger food. :(

I don't like their burgers. Love their shakes.

Are the bends in the tacos done by hand?

Forget about the the shape of tacos. It sounds like you like the deep fried tacos. So you would love the thin, crispy, fried, foot long crispy bean burrito.

Try one the next time you go to Vegas.

taco time is what someone from Canada would think Mexican food is. lost in translation twice over.

They are popular in Vancouver, BC.

Put a little too much cheese in the burritos up there.

Taco Time is not that.

You know how you could down 10 taquitos from Cielito Linda on Olvera Street in one sitting?

These taste as good.

BM if you're ever in South OC, this is authentic as it gets.

For every 10 people in line- 5 will be illegal gardeners and house painters, 4 will be legal Mexicans, and you will be the Gabacho.

Taco Time is good. Better than Bell or Johns.

Texas already has Taco Cabana which blows any other fast Mexican food place away
