Review: Taco Bell - Beefy Melt Burrito

A familiar mash-up of various Taco Bell ingredients, Taco Bell's latest limited-time menu item, the Beefy Melt Burrito features seasoned ground beef, seasoned rice, their three cheese blend, and reduced-fat sour cream for an easy price of 99 cents.

As expected the taste is pretty familiar and simple but I was mildly surprised to find a fair amount of oozy, melted cheese which I much prefer to Taco Bell's nacho cheese sauce in this application for the taste and texture.
Other than that, the burrito was a pretty good size for 99 cents and pretty filling. The ingredients could have been distributed a little better (There was mostly beef on one end and mostly rice at the other), but overall, I quite liked the Beefy Melt Burrito and 99 cents makes for a cheap meal for me.

  1. Looks good, but I wish they would have kept the cheesy double decker. Or give us a gimmicky $1 chalupa!

  2.  The $2 meal deal comes with a chalupa, a medium drink and chips. That would make it less than one dollar.

  4.  Actually its a Gordita

  5. "A Beefy Melt Burrito, Taco Supreme, Chalupa Supreme, Cinnamon Twists and a Medium Soda for just 5 bucks." IT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE.

    EDIT: Whoops, I saw "$2" as "$5". Sorry about that everyone, it WAS a gordita in the $2 meal. Chalupa's in the $5 meal, which I found worth it, the burrito's a bit messy though.

  6. Exactly Rich, it's a Gordita. Don't get me wrong, those are good too. But the Chalupa is amazing, I can't imagine they'd put that in a $2 meal. They could probably charge $3 for one and not miss a beat.

  7. Is that a french fry in there? lmao.

  8. i think it's an illusion caused by the folding of the tortilla 

  9. I didn't notice that before, nice. Okayflint is probably right, but it does really look like a fry!
