I went back and tried the BK tacos again last week. Not as good as last time. They use a better tortilla than Jack-in-the-Box, but the meat was flavorless. I did like the "Don Sonora" brand taco sauce that they served with the tacos. I didn't feel too good after eating the tacos.

I doubt I'll go back. I'll admit it, BK is gross.

I think this is so funny. Burger King cannot even produce a decent burger (I would not feed one to my dog) so why would anyone discuss the virtues of their tacos????

Because some people here like "Jack-In-The-Box" style tacos and the BK tacos are very simular.

I've learned my lesson and won't be eating at BK again. But hey, when it comes to food, "To each his own."

Well please let me know the very first time that you observe a"culinary folk artist" working at a fast food joint and I will buy your meals for 6 months!

That's like going to Denny's for steak. (I probably opened a pandora's box with that comment)
3) Isn't there a fast food place for tacos called TACO bell?
4) Would you go to Taco Bell if they sold hamburgers?

I'm sorry, with plenty of fast food taco places (Taco Bell, Chipotle, Baja Fresh, etc.), I see no reason to go to a fast food burger joint for a taco.
It just don't make sense.




The same people who order tacos at Burger King order chicken at (insert-steak-joint-here), I'm sure.

I've never seen tacos on a Burger King menu, but then again, I haven't eaten at a Burger King in ages. There is one at my local mall and they've been advertising "Chicken Fries" - I'm not quite sure what to think of that. Anyone ever try them?

I worked in a real nice seafood restaurant in Florida, and people come in and order chicken...Why on earth go there, and then complain about the "chicken"....
Specializes in SEAFOOD... kinda like going to BK for a taco...
Hmmmmmm......

I live in illinios and we have tacos at burger king, I think they have a good spicy flavor and are far better than taco bell's tacos.

Possibly because their tacos are better than their burgers and if you have to eat there, they may be a good choice. Possibly.

Good Lord, "Burger King Tacos".
 
Just the thought:!
 
That said, some of my 'ganga-fan' students swear by Jack-in-the-Box Tacos.

So far, haven't seen any in AZ. That would be like hauling coal to Newcastle--------------PA!
The fact that there are Taco Bell's, Del Taco's and others in the Valley blows my mind!
I guess they're for the people who moved here from Nebraska or Arkansas???

The Burger King here in Herndon (VA) sold them for a short while a couple of years ago. They were almost exactly like the old Jack In The Box tacos I remember from my younger days!...My wife loved them and was greatly dissapointed when Burger King stopped selling them.

Well the outside looks good, just like those at Jack in the Box.
 
Reminds me of those mini cocktail size frozen tacos Mom used to buy when I was a kid.  Wish they were still available.  I can still taste them they were so good.

Well, now I know why BK tried. I saw in the paper today that Jack in the Box sells more than McD sells Big Macs, with far less stores. It is JIBs biggest seller. We don't have them here on the east coast. The article had a few funny quotes, and I'll paraphrase......"Slimed catfood in a crunchy shell, but oh so good"  , "Everyone thinks that they are disgusting,,,,,,,,,,,even the people addicted to them"
 
I never saw the BK tacos out here, but after today's front page story, in the Wall Street Journal, a lot of stock holders, at a lot of chains, will be wondering why their chain is not doing copycat tacos.

When you can get 2 tacos for 99¢ and they taste good, of course you are going to sell a ton of them.
 
Not sure what makes them so good, but they sure are.

We had JIB in Northern Virginia in the 70's/early 80's...24 hrs open. Always a stop for tacos and burgers to soak up "liquids' and would occasionally result in an "altercation' with school rivals...oh how Annandale has changed.

Ciabatta sandwiches
 
Breakfast omelets.
 
Bother were excellent.

Bother? 
 
Thanks, I may have to try that omelet.  My favorite was the Spanish Omelet circa 1972.
