Hence the name "ColoCowboy".
I am laughing harder than when I originally wrote my Taco Bell comment... and, yes, I laugh at my own jokes
Hey, sometimes we're the only ones who get us!
I hope I don't get hate for this, but I actually think Burger King's Impossible Whopper is pretty good. I only have it occasionally because I'm working on losing some weight, and that Impossible Whopper probably is only minutely more healthy than a real Whopper. But for folks looking for a meatless burger, BK has come up with a hit.
Speaking of Jack-in-the-Box and some of you were, I was not but now I am. One of my wife's friends was the Executive Chef at two of the top restaurants in Dallas and was classically trained at Le Cordon Bleu in Paris and her absolute go to once a week was JitB tacos. No other tacos would do and she had to have 4 when she got them. That was the only fast food she ever got but that was once a week at the minimum.
All those Impossible Burger patties are the same. The only difference is what's on them.
And they have as much fat as beef because they need that for flavor.
I haven't tried one but I have heard they are good and not like those Morningstar Farms black bean/brown rice gag buzzards off a gut wagon pretend burgers that my wife used to eat.
No, they're not good. They taste like leftover meatloaf that's starting to turn. They experimented with them at Hooters and the manager brought me a sample to see how I liked it. I took one bite and pushed the rest away. But the waitress who was sitting with me thought it tasted like beef. I guess it's like one of those "What do you hear?" things. Either it tastes really bad to you, or it tastes just like meat.
They're the bomb. I think what sets them apart is they are made by a burger joint with no apologies. They're not trying to disguise them as authentic Tex-Mex, the cheese is a slice from a cheeseburger. Lettuce and veggies not separated cold like a Tex-Mex restaurant or even a Taco Bell! LOL Cheap, great and unique tasting.
Although I agree with Tabascocat that most Texans eventually graduate to Taco Cabana for their 2AM Tex-Mex hangover needs. The best part of Texas is if you find a Mom & Pop breakfast taco joint. They're everywhere, especially as you get closer to the border. Nothing like soaking up a night on the town of booze with some greasy chorizo and egg, or potato and egg tacos.
i dont get anything else from there, but 2 or 3 pieces of long john silvers fish soaked in malt vinegar
