lots of sauces (some are good)
fairly hot salsa
extra crunchy chips
Cheese
seasoned Ground Beef
Soft Flour Tortillas (or crunchy corn)

it is very different from actual Mexican, but good if you are in the mood

Wow, not much different than Tex Mex. Lots of flour and cheese. I'll Yelp it and see what we have here in L.A.

Re: Guacamole: Peas or no peas?

This thread got me in the mood for fake tacos
I am eating Taco Bell right now!

I love how they use 'tools' to make the tacos, trowel, caulking gun, etc

Me either. I just eat it and I'm fine.

Of course, the better place to go is Taco John's. When I first moved up here there weren't any near me. In my current home, one is right down the street. It's fan-fucking-tastic.

Re: Guacamole: Peas or no peas?

So why don't you guys look for authentic Mexican food instead of Americanized Mexican food? I'm not understanding that notion. If you think Taco Johns is great then I would assume that you guys would be blown away by some actual flavor at a traditional spot. Was I right about going into the 'hood to get it then?

Kind of depends on where you live. I save my great Mexican food for when I visit family in southern CA, because the Mexican food in my town is okay at best (I'm okay with Baja Fresh--not the greatest, but it beats it's competition, which is Chipotle across the street). You can like Americanized Mexican AND authentic Mexican food at the same time. They're just different.

It's like Chinese. I save my good Chinese food for down there, too. What passes for Chinese in the US is very unlike the real thing, but I can still eat it and enjoy it.

Is that really a common problem? It may be a cute joke but are people really getting the shits from eating tortillas, grounds beef, beans, cheese and sauce (the ingredients of virtually all Taco bell food)?

I guess that makes sense but I guess the availability of authentic makes it so that I don't like the shitty versions. I'm the opposite, though. I eat it, but I don't enjoy it.

I don't really think of it as the same thing. I don't think of one as a substitute for the other. I think of it as something different, which it is. It's possible to enjoy both without equating them.

It's the same way I can eat both a real Italian plate of spaghetti, and a can of Spaghetti-O's. They may both have spaghetti in the name, but they're really not the same thing at all.

I have a handful of friends that swear TB gives them the shits every time they eat it, I have never had an issue.

Taco Bell to me is it's own food group. I was at one of my satellite offices today that has a Taco Bell literally right next door, I had to I should have posted pics to agitate all the natives

I have no Taco John's

There's a great burger place in town called the Blue Door Pub. They have a burger called the Cease and Desist that tastes like the world's best Big Mac (it got the name because they used to call it a Big Mac until they got a cease and desist letter from McDonald's.)

There are two locations in town and it's definitely worth going, but 99% of the time actually getting a Big Mac from McDonald's is cheaper, faster and more convenient. And I think they taste just fine on their own.

You make it seem like I've never had authentic Mexican food so I'm just settling for Taco John's or scared of it or something. That is certainly not the case. But at 9 PM on a Tuesday, getting Taco John's is a hell of a lot more convenient than driving into the city. And I actually like Taco John's, so that's even better.

Re: Guacamole: Peas or no peas?

I love the people in this thread who are criticizing "hipsters" while simultaneously talking about how they were totally into tacos before the masses came along and ruined them, and by the way, this little hole-in-the-wall place that I know is so much better than the chain you like.

Re: Guacamole: Peas or no peas?

My philosophy w/ finding great tacos, if the inside and outside of the taco joint look like crap... the food probably tastes great. Very rarely does a nice looking interior/exterior taco joint match up to the taquerias' quality.

It started to sound that way. Speaking of burgers I love a nice cheddar burger from gastropubs but I'm one of the few that actually likes McDonald's. Like, I actively go there sometimes…on purpose. They have a really good jalapeño double burger.
