Which Chain Makes the Best Burrito Bowls?

Los Angeles Tacos Farley Elliott 20 comments

Yet, plenty of chains offer bowls as viable alternatives to the tacos and burritos I've come to love. So be it. With similar (or, on occasion, exact) ingredients as what's found in my burrito, I can swing a bowl. Heck, I usually opt for the ice cream cup over the cone, so there! Now, down to business. Which Mexican chain makes the best bowls? More

Which Chain Makes the Best Veggie Burrito?

Taste Tests Farley Elliott 18 comments

Let's look past the bean & cheese. Obama may not have mentioned this in his DNC speech, but as a nation it is imperative that we move past the bean & cheese as the only available option for vegetarians at our taco chains. The B&C has its place, of course, but we were looking for more than just sloppy pinto beans and greasy cheese in this tasting. Taco Bell, Del Taco, Chipotle, Baja Fresh, Rubios and Wahoos battle it out for the title of best vegetarian burrito. More

Taco Bell, Del Taco, Baja Fresh, Rubio's, Chipotle, Qdoba, and Wahoo's. Some, of course, were better than others. More

Save your steak burritos for another day. Leave your carnitas at home. We're talking ground beef tacos, the absolute baseline for Mexican fast food eats. Heck, a few chains that don't otherwise mess with the Mex at all (ahem, Jack in the Box) even have ground beef tacos on their board. So who has the tastiest, beefiest tacos? We found out. More

Which Taco Chain Makes the Best Fish Tacos?

Farley Elliott 25 comments

If you don't happen to live near the salty Pacific, where can you go to find a serviceable fish taco in your area? Well, that depends on what sort of Mexican-inspired chains exist around you. If it's nothing but Taco Bells and El Pollo Locos, you might be in trouble. But if you've got a Baja Fresh—or better yet, a Rubio's—you might be in for a pleasant surprise. More
