Lunchtime Lads: The Taco John’s Experience


Connor Scholl and Rodney Perry

As mentioned in the last edition, the Lunchtime Lads have tried to integrate diversity into their food adventures by trying restaurants of different ethnicities. However, also in the last edition, they broke that practice by eating at a mexican restaurant for the second time. Since they had already broken their streak, they decided to break it further by eating mexican thrice, and for this edition, they decided to go to Taco John’s.

Connor’s Review – How can I even begin to describe the wonder that is Taco John’s? Before this visit, I had already eaten there countless times, and my love for it grew continuously with each visit. Having already tried it several times, there was no doubt in my mind that this visit would provide an excellent experience, but to describe my experience as excellent would be an understatement. My experience was incomparable, and my happiness knew no bound. I ordered the usual, the #3 (which consisted of two soft shell tacos, a small potato olé, and a drink) and received it promptly after ordering, as to be expected from the fine service at Taco John’s. Per usual, the first bite of the taco was an immense flavor sensation. From that initial bite until the end of the meal, I was in a taco paradise, and the potato óles only enhanced my experience even further. I only have one miniscule complaint: the pepsi I got as a refill on my way out tasted almost exactly like soda water, with very little flavor at all. However, this has happened very scarcely in the past, and surely this is no permanent problem. Because I was overall very happy with this meal, I would rate it 9 out of 10, and would encourage anyone who has not tried this glorious place to go there as soon as possible.

Rodney review- Taco Bell was astoundingly one of the best restaurants aesthetically as well as culinary. The venue of Taco Bell was reminiscent of American Southwest with a touch of modern fast food culture. The mix really added a breath of fresh air. The menu provided an array of different options unlike other Southwestern restaurants previously visited. I chose the bean burrito as it was light but packed full of nutrients. As i received the burrito i admired its simplicity and compactness. I took a bite from the burrito i was greeted with variety of different flavors including beans, meat and cheese. The burrito blew away all of my expectations, the only problem  with the restaurant was i couldn’t stay there longer. The atmosphere of Taco Bell created an environment of culture not found in any other restaurant. I give Taco Bell a score of 9 out of 10 and would recommend this to any and everyone looking for the best restaurant with a cultural flare.
