Sabrina and Tom: Review Taco Bell

As you saw on Friday, Sabrina reported to me that she had a less than stellar experience at Taco Bell on her way to DC.

Well, we spoke of this experience in more depth over the weekend. After she had a VERY positive review of a Taco Bell outside of charming and wonderful Baltimore on the way back to NYC yesterday, I've asked her and her boyfriend, Tom, to send me a detailed report.
here it is, in their words:
(p.s. they called the locations from the road for directions. they identified themselves as taco bell inspectors and had pleasant exchanges. i do not think the tb inspector bit was taken seriously).

Both on the journey to and from pit stops at Taco Bells were made. Not knowing the location of said establishments, we Googled them and located the following in the vicinity at that time.

Report: Bean burritos were fat and healthy with content [except for one aberration;; 1/2lb Bean and rice was made just right; 7 layer crunchwrap was crisp and fresh, and when sliced open one could see a well put together layering [each layer distinct and identifiable]; Grilled steak taquito was a nice small addition….fresh and tasty; not too big and not too small….
also of note: One of the TB inspectors on this trip was so satisfied with the 7 layers crunch wrap that she ordered a second one. It was her first...then second...7 layer crunchwrap.
