What's Up with this "Late-Night" Promise?

"Open 'Til 1 am or later". We've all seen the ads--the promises Taco Bell flashes at the end of their tv ads. But that is a lie. Is there a little * by the later on the ads, with an attached footnote reading "at select locations"? I really don't think so but after this weekend, I will look more closely.

However, with that intro, I don't want you to worry: Thursday night Erin and I made it safely into the drive-thru of Taco Bell at 11:45. The dining room was closed which was disappointing. The drive-thru was only opened until 12 midnight Sunday-Thursday and 1 am on Friday and Saturdays. Lies. After we ate in the car (sob story, indeed), we passed a Taco Bell whose dining room was still open post midnight. If we had been able to trust the promises Taco Bell feeds us, then we would have rested easy passing the drive-thru only establishment, knowing we'd find at least another drive-thru whilst holding out hope for a dining room experience.

That said, here's what we split:

1. crunchwrap (not enough beans this time)--yet not as messy in the past which should be a good thing but apparently is not
2. the grilled stuft burrito with beans: i love the rice in it but it's just not as good as it should be. not enough to it. and yet it was the most costly item we ordered--and thus, the item we received for free using the infamous coupon.
3. 7 layer burrito: it is really good.
4. bean burrito: saving the best for last. the beans were extra good--tasting especially beany. we agreed: it was the best item of the evening. which is not to sell short the crunchwrap with which i am still infatuated.

And we asked for and received a lot of sauce packets. success! (note: this Taco Bell was, indeed, in the suburbs).

Hey! Very Nice! Check out this website I found where you can make extra cash.
It's not available everywhere, so go to the site and put
in your zipcode to see if you can find something. I found something and make
and extra $900 a month!

which burrito was it where i liked the rice? i was there with liz...dont be fooled my the "whipcreamy". i enjoyed the experience...even the ghettoness of eating in the car, but i too was disappointed when we could have eaten inside a taco bell. so it was either the grilled stuft or the seven layer, but the rice in it was damn good!

it was the grilled stuft. i thought i mentioned that in the blog. that is the best part of the grilled stuft. that and the grilled though it should have had more in it. they usually do--esp for the $2.49. i mean, what are we paying so much for? rice? suspect.
