Review: Taco Bell Breakfast.. with Bacon!

long bar


Breakfast at Taco Bell? How could we not????

My husband and I were excited when we found out the Taco Bell by our home now served breakfast. Not excited because we thought it would be the best breakfast ever, but because this meant Review Time.

We actually had to go twice to get an accurate review for them. The first time we went, we forgot the breakfast grilled taco and the service was terrible. The waffle taco was cold and they didn’t give us any syrup. And they put about a tablespoon of filling into our breakfast burrito. Thanks.

So, with any fast food service, a second visit is sometimes needed. It didn’t cost much, it wasn’t far from us, and we didn’t get food poisoning the first time. So why not?

We did go to a different location the second time around. Much nicer service and the food prep was WAY better. We made sure to get one of everything that came with bacon. This included the following:


Review: It was pretty good. The waffle was a little crunchy. Kind of like tossing an Eggo waffle in toaster just long enough for a slight crisp but the inside is still soggy. The dough for the waffle was a little sweet on it’s own. The scrambled eggs were fine, the chopped bacon was pretty impressive and fresh, small amount of shredded cheese. It came with a syrup packet that really made it edible. Just pour the syrup on, shove it in your mouth and don’t think about it.





Review: It was just a soft taco with the same ingredients of the waffle taco but no syrup. Slightly grilled but not recently. I do have to thank them for putting all the chopped bacon in the very center and not spreading it out. I don’t know what I would have done if I had to go looking for it.





Review: The second time ordering the burrito was much better. It’s about the size of one of their bean burritos. It did taste as if it was made that morning – a plus. There was plenty of bacon throughout the entire burrito. But it tasted pretty plain and felt dry. It was the same three ingredient: scrambled egg, shredded cheese and chopped bacon. I had to pour my sauces into it just to though. I’ll be honest, I was wishing I had McDonald’s Sausage Breakfast Burritos half way through.




Review: I saved this one for last because it was my favorite. This is the one I would actually go back and order again. It was perfectly grilled when we got it. Inside it has much more to offer than the other menu items. You get a hash brown patty, nacho cheese sauce, lots of chopped bacon, and scrambled eggs and all grilled up as a Crunchwrap! I have to say – THIS is what I expected for a Taco Bell breakfast. The Chrunchwrap saved the day and is the only reason I will be going back for their breakfast again.





Overall, I would recommend you still give it a try. Try the whole menu. My first experience was terrible, but the second was better. In the end, there’s only one menu item I am going back for – the A.M. Crunchwrap with Bacon. You do have to keep in mind though, Taco Bell is a fast food chain. This isn’t a restaurant with high standards. You get what you get and you’re not paying much. It’s fast food, drive-thru breakfast.
