What a bizarre opinion, in my opinion.

I kept seeing them advertised so I picked one up on my way to work tonight. It was horrible. I ate half of it before throwing it away. Yuck, never again.

We eat at Taco Bell every two or three years, but only in an emergency situation like being lost in traffic in a strange city and itís right there with an easy exit to get to.
That was the case yesterday when we pulled into a Taco Bell in Olympia, WA.

I got a Bean Burrito and a Shrimp Taco.
My wife got a Bean Buritto.
We each got a free Pepsi as a Senior Discount.

A bunch of Hot Sauce packets made everything almost edible and we didnít get sick.

The Pepsi was good.
We got refills to take with us.
It went great with our bag of Sesame Sticks from Trader Joeís as we drove the hour and a half back home.

I wouldn't order the shrimp taco - ever -because I love the crunchy beef tacos too much. I usually get about 8 or 10 cruchy beef tacos with 4 side orders of the shredded cheese and 4 side orders of tomatoes, plus a medium drink of Baja Blast (a Mountain Dew drink that is blue and delicious - sold only at Taco Bell.) I love Taco Bell.

LMAO!!! This is HILARIOUS!!! My husband came home for lunch today -- and picked up food on his way. A chicken burrito and a shrimp taco (AGAIN!!!) for each of us.

There was WAY too much mayo on the shrimp taco -- and that's hard for me to say because I love me some mayo. Honestly, this HAS to be the last time I eat one of them.

I was curious, my curiosity was sated (not once but twice), and I'm closing the door on this shrimp taco adventure. I'll hold out until our next trip to Florida when I can have my beloved shrimp burrito at Zona Fresca in Fort Lauderdale.

Rubio's is ok if you don't have a real fish taco place near you. I'm actually shocked they are still in business here! In San Diego, there is a place on every corner it seems that sells fresh, real fish tacos without the prepackaged factor. Rubio's is not very endorsed by the locals, given the places we have! If anyone is traveling to San Diego and wants some recs for the best shrimp tacos you'll ever have, I'll be more than happy to suggest a few!

And that picture of the taco above? It looks the same as it would on the way out....

Funny, the photo above looks terrible and I can't imagine anyone running to get one with that kind of marketing!

That said, the photo on TB's website looks awesome and I can see why people would want to try it. That said, I think the above photo is more representative of what you actually get!
