It’s a rare occasion to hear someone say, “I don’t want tacos.” What’s not quite so rare is, “I want tacos, where should we go get some?” To Millenials, “cheap,” “convenient” and “customizable” are some our favorite buzzwords, and tacos answer to all three. So here are the nation’s biggest fast food taco chains, ranked.
What’s so great about it: It’s open late (which is great when you’re on your way home from the bar) and the menu gets you the most bang for your buck. (Did you ever actually finish a 12 for $10 taco box?) Oh, and the Doritos Locos Tacos, too. Dank.
What’s, like, not so great about it: We’ve never really gotten a clear answer about what’s in Taco Bell beef. Like ever.
What’s, like, not so great about it: It’s a smaller chain, so unless you live near one your chances of experiencing the magic are slim.
What’s so great about it: Tijuana Flats is fast and cheap. $5 and a few minutes on any given Tuesday will get you two tacos, chips and a drink, and that’s a bargain for anyone.
What’s, like, not so great about it: One word: Grease.
What’s, like, not so great about it: Hint: Don’t get your tacos to-go. It’s just a mess.
What’s so great about it: Customizing our food is one of our favorite things to do (thank you Subway, Dominos, and Cold Stone). Moe’s lets you customize just about everything (Read: you can put queso on anything).
What’s, like, not so great about it: Going to the bathroom afterwards.
What’s so great about it: One of Chipotle’s mottos, “Food with Integrity,” really hits home for a lot of people, and we really appreciate its commitment to sustainability and freshness. (Chipotle also has an app, y’all.)
