Burger Review: Taco Bell's Triple Steak Stack

#1 Edited by TurboMan (7539 posts) -

Holy Shit Folks. I am back with another "Burger" Review. After a long hiatus, It's finally time to sit down and review a fine cuisine from Taco Bell.

Price: $4.99

Positive: "It's wrapped in tin foil, so you know it's high quality."

Negative: "Not sliced down the middle like Subway does it."

Overall: Three Stars / Five

The Banner was made by Buzz_Clik a long time ago, and the song I used is from Hamst3r.

You should join that guy on Community that does the frozen pizza reviews.

Personally I thought the steak stack was too heavy on steak and didn't have much flavor.

But... it's not a burger. I know you acknowledged that, but c'mon!

I did have one the other day and it was alright. Very steaky, but the sauce wasn't the greatest.

I remember these! From way back when the hamburger forum ruled above all on GB. Those were the days.

Is there a better soda then Baja Blast?!?! You're dead to me if you answer in any way, shape, or form that isn't no.

Did you make that song for the video when you were eating, it is amazing.

Hamst3r made that song. Credit where credit is due plz.

I like your enthusiasm over Taco Bell. If only my tastebuds could be that happy again.

Those words should never be used in the same sentence.

Now subscribed. I'm so glad I convinced myself to watch the video review. You're totally awesome, man! Great review. I'll never go to Taco Bell again without getting a large Mountain Dew Baja Blast, hahaha.

Seriously. This shouldn't even be on this board. Mods please ban this man.

I've been on a raw food lifestyle diet for almost 4 months and having junk food every so often is an enjoyment and a reminder why I changed eating habits. Taco Bell is a guilty pleasure. I just tried one of these last night.
I just had to try this thing. It wasn't good. The pita type roll was doggy and wanted to tear. I had to eat it off the foil to prevent it from falling apart. I should have stuck with my regular choice of 2 steak chalupas and 2 volcano tacos loaded with 2 hot and 2 fire sauce packs each washed down by the Baja mountain dew. I'll give the triple steak 1.5 stars out of 5.

Yes! Forgot to add it in last night when I posted it. Credit to hamst3r for his work should be in there now.

Yeah, you could see in the video me just lifting up one end would tear the bread. I think my experience was a bit better than yours though, cause it wasn't as sloppily made.

The last time I went to taco bell I was really bummed that it wasn't as good as it was when I was a kid.

Just a friendly reminder for people: If your late for work and haven't eaten anything in awhile, DO NOT EAT THIS! It will totally turn your productive work day into a slow moving slog.

#21 Posted by TurboMan (7539 posts) -

@TheUnsavedHero: Yeah... I had it at 10 PM, but I know what you mean... it's one of those things that's hard to come back from.

The same could be said about pretty much anything on the Taco Bell menu.

I've gone from no shave november to not shaving my beard till Daniel Bryan cashes in his MotB at the main event of WrestleMania

my motto is: "never get steak from Taco Bell"

#28 Posted by Guided_By_Tigers (8061 posts) -

fucking 5 dollars?.....that's why I always order off the value menu at fast food places.

@MidgardDragon: please tell me that I wasn't the only one who looked for Leonard's frozen pizza reviews on youtube after that episode.
