For some reason, I always noticed this seems to happen at Taco Bell more that other fast food places. I think it's because they have a more complex menu, and usually you also have the whole KFC combo, because they are partnered in some way. I have not gone to a Taco Bell for over a year, but I always remember the drive through lines sucking ass. It's all crap anyway, just pick one, and move on.

On that album cover, it looks like the guy going through the drive-through is holding the place up!

Back when we had The Drunk Bus (an old school suburban that was used to haul around my fellow athletes in college, with a frosh designated driver at the helm), we'd hit orders of $40-$50 at the drive through at around 1:30-2:00am. It really was a sight to be seen, though back then the menu was much simpler, so we'd just order 5-6 of each item and they'd usually just throw in a ton of extra shit.

I don't think that was a drive-thru. Back when the Taco Bells were designed like that, there wasn't such a thing as a drive-thru yet. Also, the restroom entrances were outside. Gross. Did they dump the guy in the sombrero because it was offensive to Hispanics?

I'll stick with Taco Johns. It's way better anyway. Plus they still use a guy with a sombrero.

You're kidding, right? I can get stuff off the Mexican roach coach that tastes better than Taco Bell.

When I eat at taco bell, I have to slather the "food" with about twenty packets of fire sauce to make it remotely tasty.

I will take Taco Bell over the local mexican sit down resturant. Taco Bell has variety. The local mexican place takes beef, lettuce, cheese, tortillas and then makes 30 different meals of from those ingredients. There salsa sucks too.

I'm sure Taco Bell is indeed the best Mexican food in Iowa. Still doesn't mean it's any good.

He probably lives somewhere in the midwest. Here in the bay area, we get authentic mexican food made by authentic mexicans. And if you're not happy with your local burrito joint, there's at least 10 more within a 2 block radius.

I sure hope this joke post doesn't cause a page of serious discussion.

The thing I find most amazing in this thread is that someone who's been here for eight years fell for a dork callback/joke. He even used "hella", for cryin' out loud.

Nope, I was mad because gas at 3 bucks an hour costs a lot more than Taco Bell when you're idling behind a moron. And guess what else? My dad spent more on my brothers' Christmas presents than on mine.

But real Mexicans make the food at the local resturant. That has to mean something. SOMETHING!
