A full-size portion is $6.79 in my area but I received this courtesy of Wendy's.
Although it's not what's mentioned in the description, my chili also came on the side. It does make sense though, at least for to-go orders, as the heat of the chili might wilt the lettuce and cook the tomatoes otherwise.
The strongest flavor comes from the chili which offers a fairly meaty, tomato base. I always add some of the chain's hot chili seasoning for a spicy kick. With the tomato and different seasonings, it doesn't really get one thinking of tacos though. The salsa contributes to the overall tomato-y tang but also tosses in a robust zestiness.
The chips and lettuce blend offer a nice crunch factor and the tomatoes were pretty fresh. It's nice to scoop up what you want with the tortilla chips.
